Killeagh-Ita’s Juvenile News

Double Win Blows Off the Cobwebs

Rebel Óg Eastern ‘A’ Fe 16 Hurling League Killeagh-Ita’s 2-12, Cloughduv 1-10

Rebel Óg Premier 1 Minor Hurling League Killeagh-Ita’s 2-21, Bishopstown 2-12

A double header in Páirc Uí Chinnéide on Saturday last saw our U16 and minor hurlers recording their second and third wins respectively in their league campaigns. Given over six weeks of inactivity for both teams due to the Junior and Leaving Certificate exams, it was something of a challenge for both teams to get back into the swing of things. The opening game of the afternoon saw Cloughduv return to Páirc Uí Chinnéide after an exciting game at Under 14 championship two years ago finished level before Cloughduv easily won the replay. This time around our team managed to come out on top in a close-fought game. Highlights of the first half, which finished level (1-5 to 0-8), were Ryan McCarthy’s exceptional free-taking from distance (four points) and a well-finished goal by Olan Broderick on 12 minutes. The second half saw Cloughduv take the lead with a goal on 36 minutes, before points from Richie Long (2), Ryan McCarthy and Olan Broderick restored parity on 48 minutes. The game-changer was a well-finished goal by Richie Landers, now operating at full-forward, which was followed by a point from Barry Motherway to stretch the lead. Richie added his second point in injury time to ensure our victory. A patchy overall performance garnered the league points, but Aghabullogue, our championship opponents on Monday 4th, won’t be quite quaking in their boots!

Team: Brian Murphy, Darragh Geary, Daniel Lucey, Paul Delaney, David Kelly, Dylan Hogan, Adrian Galvin, Richie Landers (1-2), Ryan McCarthy (0-6f), Oisin McCarthy, Barry Motherway (0-1), Richie Long (0-2, 0-1f), Olin Hennessy, Olan Broderick (1-1), Dara Motherway, Padraig Leahy, Darragh O’Connor, James Kent, Owen Cosgrove, Danny Cunningham, Tommy Noonan.

Our minor opponents Bishopstown arrived just as the U16 match was finished, and they contributed to an entertaining game which saw good scores from both sides. Our team were slow to settle, showing the signs of the long lay-off, with only three points in the first eighteen minutes, by which time Bishopstown had scored 1-1. A highlight of this half was the four missed goal chances by our forwards, two of which were excellent point-blank saves by the outstanding Bishopstown goalkeeper. Trailing by 1-4 to 0-5 after 22 minutes, we finished the half strongly with Sean Walsh (2) and Richie Long adding points from play and Killian Treacy very accurate from frees, to leave us 0-10 to 1-6 ahead. A second soft goal conceded straight after half-time forced our team to work a little harder, with Cathal Deane, David Ogbebor, Shane Kearney and Aaron Walsh getting on a lot of ball, while our defensive spine of Jack O’Rourke and Christy Coughlan were in top form at the back, showing no signs of fatigue after their Junior A Championship game 21 hours earlier. Eventually, the Bishopstown goal was breached when Killian Treacy goaled on 46 minutes, and David Ogbebor’s goal on 51 minutes gave us some breathing space. Scoring 2-21 was impressive, with no fewer than 7 scorers (each of our six forwards scored at least twice), although conceding 2-12 gives plenty of room for improvement at the other end; special mention to U16 players Richie Long, Padraig Leahy, Barry Motherway and Adrian Galvin who played in both games.

Team: Fionn McDonnell, Padraig Leahy, Jack O’Rourke, Emmet Barron, Jamie Landers, Christy Coughlan, Kevin Murphy, Eoin Fitzgibbon (0-1), Cathal Deane, Aaron Walsh (0-2), David Ogbebor (1-2), Sean Walsh (0-2), Shane Kearney (0-2), Killian Treacy (1-10, 0-8f), Richie Long (0-2), Barry Motherway, Adrian Galvin.



Our sister club Inch Rovers created their own history on Saturday last in Mountmellick, Co. Laois, winning the Regional Féile U14 title, defeating Kilmoremoy from Mayo in the final by 4-4 to 0-4. This team have shown great promise for some time now and this was just reward for their efforts. A special mention to Ciara Irwin who achieved a unique Féile double, having starred for Sarsfields of Glanmire as they won the Camogie Féile Division 1 the previous Sunday in Dungarvan.


Cúl Camp – July 18th – don’t forget!

Invariably, every year, someone comes along in June asking when Summer Camp is on. Notes have been distributed to all children in our primary schools, but just in case the school bag (never the child!) mislaid the letter, the following is the important information:

Cúl Camp is here again! We would like all boys and girls in primary school (up to 6th class) to consider taking part in this year’s Cúl Camp. If you would like your child/children to participate in same, please fill out the form attached and return to Ursula in Coleman’s Shop, Killeagh no later than Friday July 1st 2016, with the appropriate fee per family (€55 for first child, €45 for each subsequent child).

Páirc Uí Chinnéide Goes Smoke-Free – Clock Is Ticking Towards August 1st!

“If you go down to the woods today …” begins the “Teddy Bears’ Picnic”. Well, we’ve got a new rap that will apply from Monday August 1st: “if you go down to the pitch today, leave your cigarettes at home!” We’re going Smoke-Free, for the benefit of all, especially our younger members. Hopefully every user / visitor will respect our new direction and help to make our shared air cleaner and healthier for all of us.



Saturday morning – runners needed!

Our committed Saturday morning running group in Glenbower continue to meet at 9.00 a.m. every Saturday and we’ve had a couple of new people join us in the last few weeks. Daylight hours are at their maximum now, so 9.00 a.m. is really the middle of the day! Get up, clear the cobwebs, and you’ll be buzzing for the rest of Saturday!



CouchTo5K Up and Running – Literally

Our CouchTo5K running group had more new members last Monday, so we hope that we will add to this over the next few weeks. The gender balance has seen the males fall behind, so men of Killeagh and around, get up off the couch and put one foot in front of the other! No point using Euro 2016 as an excuse now!



Hill Walk No. 1

Our first walk/hike took place in Knockadoon on Sunday June 26th. The group of thirteen, under the leadership of Jim ‘The Baker’ O’Mahony, meandered their way along country roads, beaches and fields on a beautiful day in Knockadoon. They set out at 10.00am and returned at 1.00pm having covered approximately 13km of leisure walking and had the added bonus of learning a bit of local history of the area and of local flora and fauna. All who took part thoroughly enjoyed the experience and plans are afoot to organise their second outing in 4/5 weeks’ time. Contact Kieran Scully for more info on 0858037343
