Bride Rovers GAA Club Notes.

 

Under 21 Footballers Win.

 

Bride Rovers U21 B footballers travelled to Cobh on Friday evening last for the second game in the round robin section of the East Cork Championship for a meeting with the host side in what was a repeat of last year’s U21 C final. On that occasion we were successful and on the lads were well aware of the ability of this Cobh side. The game was played under lights on a dry, cold night. The first half was played at a frantic pace with end to end football in testing underfoot conditions. There was nothing to choose between the sides after twenty minutes with both sides have kicked three points however it was in the final ten minutes before the break that the Rovers lads kicked on and started to dominate the contest.  Goals from Shane O’ Flynn and Brian Roche giving the lads a half time lead of 2-04 to 0-05 points. The second half was to be a similar story with Rovers dominating the early exchanges taking a lead of 2-07 to 0-05 with 10 minutes remaining, however the never say die attitude of the Cobh lads resulted in a tense closing to the game with Cobh scoring two late goals. The final result saw the Rovers win this one on a score line of 2-09 to 2-07. This result leaves the lads waiting on the result of the final group game between Cobh and Castlemartyr to see if they will automatically progress to the final having being undefeated in this year’s championship. We are now on three points and Castlemartyr are on one with Cobh on none.

 

The team on Friday night was Ben Hogan, Oisin Roche, Patrick O’Flynn, John O’Sullivan, Matthew Quinn, Eoin Roche, Tom Murray (C), Conleith Ryan, Cian Hogan, Conor Barry, Kieran Kearney, Jordan Mannix, Shane O’ Flynn, Brian Roche, Seamus Ahern, John Buckley, Tomas Macak and Edmund Cashman.

 

Senior Game off.

 

Due to weather conditions last weekend our Division 1 Senior Hurling League against St. Finbarrs was cancelled last  Sunday. Next Sunday we are billed to play Glen Rovers  away at 11.30 on Sunday but again this fixture depends entirely on the weather and the forecast is brutal.

 

CPR Training.

Training in CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation ) is a vital and beneficial need in this day and age. If CPR can be administered to an ill person very soon after their initial illness it can be key to recovery and especially helps until Medical help arrives. On Saturday February the 29th the Irish Heart Foundation are providing free CPR training in Rathcormac. Free one hour sessions will be held at 10 am, 11.30am  and 1 pm. The numbers are limited so anyone interested is asked to book a place immediately. Booking can be made by contacting Jerome at 086 1429439 or Linda at 086 8238185.  Please ring and indicate which time slot suits you best. The CPR training will be held in Scoil Bride, Rathcormac.

 

SCOR County Finals

Over the next two weekends we will be involved in County Scor Finals at Senior and Scor na bPaisti levels. On this coming Saturday in Eire Og GAA Pavilion in Ovens we are involved in the Recitation/Storytelling and Novelty Act Finals. Starting time is 6.30pm. On Sunday week march 1st a group from Bishop O Brien NS will represent the Club and Parish in the Novelty Act (Nuachleas) section with a piece titled 'Fado, Fado'  Go n eiri an t-adh le gach einne ata ag glacahadh pairt ann.
