Junior A East Cork Football Final!
On Sunday evening next at 6pm in Youghal our local heroes Glenbower Rovers will challenge for the Jim Ryan Memorial Cup a trophy that we would dearly love to win. Our opponents will be either Lisgoold or Cloyne which will be decided during the week. We have had a fantastic league campaign and 4 championship games thus far captained by Joe Deane. While football takes second place in the eyes of some this group of lads from our first outing in Cobh in Febuary have done the club proud. For the likes of selectors Noel Long, Caoimhin O'Driscoll, Declan Fogarty and Dennis Barry this has been a fantastic year. With only one more hurdle to jump and hopefully a historic day for the club we wish the lads and the management team the very best of luck on the day.
Lat Tuesday night our U21 team in the first round of the championship took on Carraig na Bhfear in Lisgoold - credit to both teams on an outstanding performance. We went in at the break 4 points up and in command but Carrig na Bhfear with the wind at their backs pegged us back which led to an intense finish where we managed to come away with a one point win. Final score Killeagh 0-13 Carraig na Bhfear 0-12.
Senior Hurling League - On Thursday evening Killeagh hosted Ballinhassig in our second last league game. It was an entertaining game of hurling which saw some great individual scores and a good all round team performance. The final scoreline read Killeagh 4-23 Ballinhassig 1-13. Our final game will be against Na Piarsaigh will be fixedin the not too distant future.
There was no winner of our lotto. The jackpot now stands at €3,800.
