Killeagh Notes

19 October, 2009

GLENBOWER ROVERS - our Junior B footballers bowed out of this year’s championship in Cobh last Wednesday night to Glenville who proved too strong on the night. There wasn’t much between the sides for long periods of the game in which scores were very hard to come by, but the Glenville outfit found their range in the second half and just shaded it in the end. Glenbower Rovers 2-02 Glenville 1-07.

SENIOR HURLING - Abernethy cup. On Sunday afternoon we travelled to Rathcormac to play Bride Rovers in the semi final of the Abernethy Cup. While it’s late in the season and there are very few clubs still hurling, our lads still have the appetite for it. As we had met and beaten the Bride in our championship opener many might have thought that this would have a bit of an edge to it but with a league semi final coming up our lads went at it like the championship game of the summer. From the off the Killeagh boys meant business, rattling the net twice and slotting over nine great points in the first half to Bride Rovers’ 1-04. We approached the second half in exactly the same way, this time our mid field and defence were outstanding conceding just a single point to our forwards one eight. Final score Killeagh 3-17 Bride Rovers 1-05.

FIXTURES- Abernethy Cup Final, Killeagh vs Cloyne, sometime over bank holiday weekend. No date or venue at hand yet so keep an eye on the website.

There was no lotto winner. Next week’s jackpot stands at 5,000 euro. Numbers drawn were 23, 29, and 31.

DINNER DANCE - NOVEMBER 28TH IN GARRYVOE HOTEL. Great night assured, plenty of notice being given to book babysitters and so forth. No excuses, this is one of the great social events of the year. Not to be missed!

There are still a number of places in the 200 club for anyone interested contact any club member.

Congratulations to our Under 13's on winning the East Cork Final on Wed night and on winning the County final on Saturday. Well done to all concerned. The future looks bright.
