The club would like to express its sympathies to the family of the late Kitty O’Shea who was buried last week-end. The O’Shea family is a very popular family in Cloyne and this was borne out by the very large crowds that descended on the family home at St Colman’s Tce and for the funeral mass on Sunday.

All of her sons played with the club with distinction winning many East Cork and County Medals. A number of her daughters were prominent figures with Cloyne Camogie teams of the past. She was a character of a woman who will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

Ar dheis De go raibh a Ainm.


Congratulations to Bandon who added the Intermediate Football crown to the Premier Intermediate Hurling title an incredible achievement, and also to Carbery Rangers who won their first ever Senior Football title over the weekend.
