Senior Hurling League. We travelled to Douglas to meet the home side in the REDFM SHL in Thursday of last. The home side were very understrength with the Cork contingent missing as well as other key players.  We were missing a few of our championship side also but with seven players scoring on the night we had a good win  by 4  16 to  0 13. Our SHC game against Avondhu is just a month from next Saturday so preparation is in full swing. Team v Douglas D Fitzgerald (0-1), L Forde (0-1), B Murphy, S Kearney, T O Sullivan, D Carr, M Liddane, S O Connor, C O Connor (1-0), S Hackett, S Walsh, R Prendergast (2-1), W Finnegan (0-9), D Dooley (0-2), M Collins (1-2).  On Sunday morning just to whet the appetite for Cork and Tipperary we played a challenge game at home to South Tipp side Carrick Swans


U10 hurling league match V Lee Gaels.

It was perfect conditions for a hurling match away to Lee Gaels of Dripsey on Saturday May 20th.  Our  boys were much too strong for the Mid Cork side showing great individual and collective play with short passing , hand passing and team play. After a great start Bride Rovers were  leading by 11 5 to nil at half time. In the spirit of fair play both sets of  mentors  agreed the game was over so we mixed both teams and started afresh for a practice game with all the kids enjoying themselves and playing in a more evenly matched  competitive contest. Well done and well played to all the boys involved . The Bride Rovers  team panel was Conor, Jack H, Thomas , Cormac , Gearoid , Shane, Cillian, David , Tomas , Jack C., A  big thank you to Ronan and Adam for stepping in as referees for the matches. The next match is on this  Saturday May 27th  when we travel to over the County bounds to Waterford and our hosts Ballyduff for their annual hurling blitz where we will compete and attempt to retain the trophy


  Feile na Gael Under 14 Hurling.

We took part in the Feile Under 14 hurling competition in Carrigtwohill on Saturday last. We played two games, against Killeagh/Itas and the home side. We had a good win over Killeagh/Itas  winning by 2 8 to 1 4. In our other game we lost to Carrig by a margin of five points 1 6 to 0 4.

Rebel Og Premier Under 14 Hurling League.

On Monday night last may 22nd we played host to Mallow at Pairc na Bride in the Premier under 14 HL. Between under 13 and under 14 most of the players on this panel have had a rake of games but in fairness to them they are a great bunch of lads and play grand hurling.  On Monday night they were well in control of the game and recorded a decisive victory on a scoreline of 5 18 to 1 8. Well done lads.

Well there mightn’t have been  dust in the square  as old rivals Cork and Tipperary met in Thurles on Sunday in the Munster Championship but it was some game. Tipp were  raging hot favourites but Cork had a swagger to behold in  Semple Stadium last Sunday and the pride in that 'Blood and Bandage' jersey was plain to be seen. Well done Rebels and now it's another titanic clash with neighbours Waterford back in Thurles on June 18th.
