Fe 15 League news.

Killeagh/Ita’s Fe15 pulled off a thrilling victory against the hosts when we headed to Whitechurch to contest our 4th game in the P2 Hurling League. It was a game that kept supporters from both sides engrossed from the throw in. There was never more than a few points between the two sides with the lead

changing hands several times. With minutes to go, trailing by a point and playing against a strong breeze we were praying for the draw only to see our boys finish out the game as winners with a comfortable 5 point lead. The first quarter of the game saw Whitechurch score 3 points and Ciaran (O’R) 2 points for Killeagh/Ita’s, all from frees. It wasn’t until the 17 minute that the first point from play was scored by the hosts closely followed by a second. The next passage of play saw Evan score his first goal of a hat-trick. A very well taken free by Robbie expertly caught by Evan left the goalie with no chance and the sides were level. Whitechurch drew ahead with two points from play when Ryan scored a lovely point from play. Our hard working backs were amazing defending our goals but also delivering ball into our mid fielders and forwards. This work-rate paid off when Evan was flicked the sliotar by Ciaran (L) and a tap saw him beat the goalie for the second time, Whitechurch quickly negated that goal when they scored their only goal of the night. We finished out the first half with Ryan scoring another point and Robbie tacking on two points one from a 65 the other from play. Half time whistle blew and when play resumed we were without the benefit of the breeze. Killeagh/Ita’s got the dream start when a shot on goal was saved by the Whitechurch goalie only to see Daniel put the rebound past the goalie we were leading on a score line of 3-6 to 1-8. The next two scores went to our opposition when Ciaran (O’R) scored his third point. Whitechurch hit a purple patch and outscored us 5 points to 2. All that could be heard around the sidelines was “what’s the score now?” This game had turned into a real battle, with Padraig, Darragh and David doing a mammoth job clearing ball. We had to use a sweeper system in the second half to halt the advance of the Whitechurch forwards. With the clock quickly counting down we trailed by a point. However our boys were determined not to be denied league points and this determination was rewarded when Jamie raised the green flag and we were ahead by two. The goalie pucked out the ball only for it to be returned to sender almost immediately and Evan finished off our scoring with his third goal of the hat-trick. Well done all it truly was a most memorable game and the smiles of the boys told its own story. With four games played we now are placed top of the league table with three games to be played against Blarney, Carrigaline and Valley Rovers.

Golf Society:


The Killeagh GAA Golf Classic comes of age this year, with our 21st Annual Golf Classic. Our 2016 Classic was another great success thanks to all those who contributed so generously, both golfers and sponsors, and we were blessed with good weather also! The funds raised are absolutely essential to keep our club’s finances in good health, and to finance the loans we have incurred in developing our excellent facilities in Páirc Uí Chinnéide. 2017 will see further development of our facilities and continued commitment to our ongoing work with our teams and our community. This year’s Golf Classic will take place in West Waterford Golf Club on Thursday July 13th, Friday July 14th and Saturday July 15th. Please contact our Golf Classic Chairman, Ray Rochford on 0872330054 to see how you can help this year.
