Carrigaline Court Championship draws for Fe18, Fe 16 and Fe14

Minor Championship: Our opposition in the opening game is Sliabh Rua on the 11th July, in Cobh @ 19.30. Winners of this clash will play the winner of either Fermoy or Ballinhassig. There is a back door in this competition which would see the losers of these games play each other for another chance of championship glory.

Fe 16 Championship: Our Fe16’s drew Ballygarvan in their first-round clash scheduled for 31st July, further details to be confirmed at a later stage. A victory in this game would see us advance to a semi-final and with no back door in this competition a loss would see our bid for silverware ended.

Fe 14 Championship: Our Fe14’s will play Cobh in their first round tie. The game is due to be played around the 16th August with venue and time to be confirmed at a later date. A coveted place in the semi-final is the prize for the winners with the losers ending their championship campaign. Lots of exciting games ahead so keep an eye for further details and come out to support the boys.

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.
