County Convention this Sunday and Draws for Senior Hurling Championship.

This coming Sunday nearly 400 delegates will attend the Cork County Board Convention in Nemo Rangers Complex South Douglas Road, to review the years activities in the county.

The big interest will come later in the day around 5.30pm when the draws for the County Championship’s will be made, for the fourteenth consecutive year our name will be in draw for the Cork County Senior Hurling Championship. After some great performances in 2016 we can look forward with confidence to this draw and make plans for 2017, where the team will once again be under the guidance of Joe Delaney Daniel Lane and William O Leary.

East Cork Convention.

For the first time ever the Imokilly divisional Convention took place in Gortroe home of St Itas club on last Thursday night. All the officers’ reports were presented and adopted. Brendan O Driscoll represented the club.

St Colman’s

St Colman’s great season came to an end in Clonmel last Sunday,but what a great run they had and are to be complimented on a another great performance and just went under by 3 points. After a close first half with the sides level on several occasions, St Colman’s led at half time 1-9 to 1-7.A goal by St Kieran’s on the 37th minute seemed to ignite the whole team but a few frees pegged them back to level scores on the 42 minute but the last fifteen minutes belonged to St Kieran’s and they edged home by three points 2-12 to 1-12. Well done to all involved and especially our boys on the team led by the Roche Brothers. We are all very grateful for the enjoyment this team brought to the clubs involved and we are certain to see much of the boys in club and college action over the next few years.
