U21 Football C/Ship

Despite their convincing last round win v Lisgoold the U21 St Colman’s footballers fell at the semi-final stage to Castlemartyr on Wednesday night last in Shanagarry.

We trailed by 4 points at half time and despite our best efforts we fell short by the minimum in a 2.08 to 2.07 scoreline.

Best wishes to Castlemartyr in the final where they will play Fr O’Neill’s.


Int Hurling League

We played Blarney in our third league game of the year on Thursday night in Blarney in what was a lovely night for a game of hurling.

We started the game very well racing into a 4 point lead but by the short whistle `Blarney had crept ahead by 2 points 9 points to 7.

A great start to the second half where Colm O’Sullivan goaled put us three points to the good 1.10 to 10 points and we were looking good to register our first league win of the campaign. Blarney to their credit finished the game the stronger and some fine points saw them win out by 2 points 18pts to 1.13.

Despite the loss it was an encouraging display from an understrength team.



Junior Hurling league Div 2 v Midleton in Cloyne at 6.45

Saturday 9th April Int hurling challenge v Hospital Limerick away at 5pm.


Inter County;

Surely a system that sees a team with 4 league points relegated and a team with no points remain in the division can’t be fair. That was exactly the situation at the weekend when Cork beat Galway in a relegation play off to retain their Div 1A status for 2017.

Great credit to Cork for pulling this victory off helped greatly by 2 goals in the last 10 minutes from Seamus Harnedy and Patrick Horgan.




Official Opening;

It gives us great pleasure to announce the staging of a very attractive Senior Hurling challenge game between Cork and Clare in Cloyne on Saturday 23rd April at 7pm.The game will mark the official opening of our new complex at River Street. Clare are one of the form teams at the moment and Cork are on a high after securing Div 1 A status for next year. The added ingredient in the game is the presence of clubmen Donal Og Cusack and Diarmuid O’Sullivan on the respective management teams.
