NEWCESTOWN POWER HOME TO FINISH STRONGEST

Co-Op Superstores Cork Senior A Hurling Championship

Newcestown 1-18 Killeagh 1-13

After a blistering opening 25 minutes, our Senior Hurlers, could not close out a victory but Newcestown fought back valiantly to be full value for their five point victory in Páirc Uí Rinn last Sunday. This Group A encounter had a lively start to proceedings with Kevin Murphy getting a point inside 25 seconds of referee’s David Daly’s first whistle of the game. A quick reply from Luke Meade levelled matters. The next score was a thing of beauty, a Ryan McCarthy 62m sideline sent cleanly over the crossbar before the deadlock was broken in the 5th minute by Gary Leahy after great work from Cian Fogarty & Kevin Murphy setting up the full forward to dispatch the sliotar to the back of the Newcestown net. Points exchanged by McCarthy (2) & Keniry (3) and by Healy (3), Killeagh led after 28 minutes 1-9 to 0-8. But a massive blow before half time, first Luke Meade scored a point from half way but then the hammer blow after a long ball into the square, Sean O’Donovan caught it cleanly and was pulled by Christy Coughlan. The resulting penalty was converted by Cian Healy. It was level at half time 1-9 a piece.

Second half, much slower to get going, both teams sharing wides but it was Ryan McCarthy was first to get off the mark with a free in the 38th minute, which was quickly cancelled out by Colm Dineen. But from here it was all Newcestown, scores before the water break from Healy & post water break from Dineen, Healy relly did put a seal on the victory for the Carbery side. Killian Traecy, Keniry & Sean Long got remaining points for Killeagh in the second half on what was a disappointing performance. Daniel Walsh picked up two yellows in the game and sent off in the 58th minute. While a bit of handbags saw Newcestown’s Sean O’Donovan pick up a straight red card from the Brian Dillons official. All in all, a great start but job not complete from a Killeagh perspective.

Next week, match day 2 as we take on Cloyne in Clonmult Memorial Park, Midleton on Sunday 9th August at 2pm. This is a do or die game for us. Cloyne were defeated by Kanturk last Sunday 2-16 to 1-8. Win we have a chance of qualifying, lose and it could be a relegation battle.

KILLEAGH: C Walsh; A Keniry, C Coughlan, D Hogan; D Walsh, C Fogarty, K Treacy; S Long (0-2), M Murphy; K Lane, E Keniry (0-5f), K Murphy (0-1); A Leahy, G Leahy (1-0), R McCarthy (0-3f, 0-1 S/L, 0-1 65’).

Subs: C Fitzgibbon for M Murphy (9-11, blood), S Smiddy for M Murphy (33), P O’Neill for Lane (45), Fitzgibbon for Coughlan (60, blood).

TOO MANY CHANCES MISSED AS GAME SLIPS BY

East Cork Oil Junior A Hurling Championship Group A Round 1

Killeagh 3-15 Erins Own 3-17

In what was beautiful conditions in Clonmult Memorial Park last Monday afternoon, unfortunately where we had many chances, it feels like a possible result that has slipped on by. One of the games of the year so far if one was a neutral watching. We got off to a blistering start, Andy Walsh with a point in the first minute, then a Dan Landers free but an early goal from the latter after 5 mins, we led 1-2 to 0-0. Erins own in reply got a point from a free and

then goal of their own, before they got two quick goals in the 10th & 12th minutes, they hit the front, 3-2 to 1-4. But the boys in green finished strong with some great scores from Dan Landers and a point from Andy Walsh, half time the Caherlag side led 3-5 to 1-8.

It was very close in the early stages of the secind half with both side exchanging scores tit for tat, Landers was scorer in chief scoring from last distances from 25 yards to 85 yards but the Erins Own net was breached again as Dan Landers coolly slotted the ball by the Erins Own keeper, the Water break was called by Midleton official Pa Beausang, Killeagh led again 2-13 to 3-9. Scores started to dry up over next few minutes but Dan Landers sealed his hat trick scoring a third goal in the 53rd minute, it was 3-13 to 3-10. We had a various number of chances but couldn’t convert where Erins Own did. It was 3-16 to 3-15 in injury time and unfortunately in the 6th minute of injury time, where the sideline ball was knocked out clearly by the Erins Own player, the sideline official gave it as an Erins Own ball which resulted in them getting a score off that phase of play.

A disappointing result after putting in a huge performance and effort. Erins Own play St. Itas next weekend while we will wait until later in the month to play the third round vs St. Itas.

Team: D Cusack; T O’Connor, A Morrison (Capt.), R Landers; J Landers, B Collins, E Fitzgibbon; P Leahy, Brendan Delaney; An Walsh 0-2, P O’Brien, D Motherway 0-1; G Collins, D Landers 3-10 (0-9f), Aa Walsh 0-2. Subs: C Fitzgibbon, R Long, R Sinclair, S Walsh.

KILLEAGH’S MISSED CHANCE PROVE COSTLY

Rebel Óg East Minor Football Championship Division 2B

Carrigtwohill 2-8 Killeagh-Ita’s 1-4

Our minor footballers did some things right in Carrigtwohill last Wednesday evening but unfortunately kicking scores was not one of them. On a very wet, almost wintry evening, which made it difficult to play possession football, our support play and defending was very good at times, but we should in truth have scored much more than the two points we had by half time and the 1-4 we had at Chris Scanlon’s final whistle. Ciaran O’Rourke’s late goal was in some ways just a consolation, but it was also some reward for the many missed chances which we spurned either side of half time. We may not have beaten Carrigtwohill, but had we converted even half of the chances we missed, we would surely have passed that 2-08 target. Time for some shooting practice!

Team: Conor Meade; Colm Landers, Robbie Treacy, Aaron Fitzgibbon; Brian Murphy, Jamie Fogarty, David Collins; Ciaran Leahy, George Walsh Wallace; Evan Lane, Eoin Brenner, Christian Coughlan; Paudie Mackey, Padraig Landers, Ciaran O’Rourke. Subs: Dylan McCarthy, Ben Budds, Ben Fogarty, Dale McMahon.

SAINTS RATTLE BACK IN SATURDAY HURLING CRACKER

Rebel Óg East U16 Hurling League Division 1B

Killeagh-Ita’s 3-12 St. Catherine’s 2-15

On a fine Saturday evening in Killeagh, St. Catherine’s snatched a draw with our Under 16 hurlers following a fine hour of end to end action. Having led by seven points with just 13 minutes left, victory

should have been ours, but our visitors battled back, outscoring us by 1-5 to 0-1 in that remaining time to earn a deserved share of the spoils. Our first half performance was excellent, with goals from Colm Leahy on 11 and 21 minutes, (David Buckley’s great run and shot setting up the second) and from Dylan McCarthy a minute later, which gave us a lead of 3-3 to 0-4 at that stage. Daniel Walsh, David Buckley and Sean Meade all added excellent points to give us a 3-7 to 1-5 lead at half time. Our opponents reconfigured their defence for the second half, meaning scores were harder to come by. By the three quarter mark, it was 3-11 to 1-10, but in the final phase of play, we tired noticeably and the Saints powered home with a late goal on 59 minutes and a point in injury time squaring the match. Our final group game is against St. Colman’s on August 15th where a victory should ensure we qualify for the knockout stages.

Team: Fionn Murphy, Diarmuid Buckley, Conor Meade, Tommy Morrison, Ben Kelly Budds, Ben Fogarty, Pierce Geary, Daniel Walsh, Barry Walsh, David Buckley, Dylan McCarthy, Darragh O’Brien, Sean Meade, Colm Leahy, Danny Fitzgerald, Jason Harte, Liam Considine.

9 GOAL KILLEAGH KNOCKED THE PIES LIVES

Rebel Óg Premier 2 Under 14 Football League Group 1

Midleton 5-10 Killeagh 9-8

Last Tuesday night, our Under 14 squad took on Midleton away in CLonmult Memorial Park.

Killeagh-Itas were on fire from the get go, securing some early scores. Great team work ensured a half time lead of 7-6 to 1-2.

A fast, tough physical second half followed, where the entire team worked hard on a warm night in Midleton and only two subs to rely on for injuries sustained. But some fine football ensured the lads secured a win. Up next is a home game vs St. Nicks next Monday night.

UNDER 14’S FALL ON WRONG SIDE OF AN EIGHT GOAL THRILLER

Rebel Óg Premier 2 Under 14 Hurling League Group 1

Killeagh/Itas 3-15 Youghal 5-11

U14 hurling On Monday August 3rd the u14 panel took on neighbours Youghal at Páirc Uí Cinneide in Killeagh. This was always going to be a tough game following on from last year’s County final which was very close. The home side got off to a flying start with a point closely followed by a goal in the opening minutes. This great team played some mighty hurling and were a goal up at half time, 2-8 to 1-8.

A very tough second half followed and despite numerous injuries from a very physical opposition Killeagh-Itas had an outstanding performance despite missing players due to injury & suspension.. The lads played their hearts out and though it was a very tight and tough game, unfortunately it wasn’t their night.

Well done to the lads and to the management duo of Conor and Richard. Their final game is at home against St. Catherines on Monday 17th.

YOUGHAL COMMUNITY HOSPITAL FUNDRAISER

As outlined prior to the Pandemic, all persons involved in helping out the team management or players that are in the Under 18 category will need to be E-Vetted.

We will be contacting the respective coaches/mentors who need to attend training in time, but for the moment we ask that ALL COACHES should start or complete the mandatory online E-Vetting process. You can do this by logging onto gaa.ie, search for the E-Vetting section and complete the necessary steps as outlined. We need these completed before we return to the green fields of Páirc Uí Chinnéide.

CÚL CAMPS RETURN TO TG4

Because of the lack of Cúl Camps due to red tapes restrictions, health guidelines etc., the young generation can watch the skills of Gaelic Games, learn from Games Promotions Officers with new skills and know how to warm up properly, what is good nutrition to be eating & hear from great stars of the Gaelic Games world. You can watch it each weekday morning this week from 10:25am (repeated at 5:15pm) for a 30 min duration.

GAA STATEMENT ON COVID-19 CLUB EDUCATION PROGRAMME FOR CLUBS (12th JUNE 2020)

Since the publication of the Guidelines on Safe Return to Gaelic Games on 5 June, the GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association have partnered to develop a Covid-19 Club Education Programme to help those involved in Clubs return safely to Gaelic Games activities.

Through education on roles and responsibilities, the programme aims to reinforce how collective responsibility can help protect the health and welfare of all those involved in Gaelic Games and minimise the risk of transmission of Covid-19 in local communities.

The programme will be delivered in stages with the initial offering focussing on Covid Supervisors and Club Officers.

More detailed information for Players and Parents/Guardians of underage Players, and Team Personnel such as Managers, Coaches and Medical Personnel will be issued during the week starting 16 June.

A number of key points are worth noting.

· Clubs will not be expected to record the temperatures of players when they arrive for training/games.

· Adult players and parents/guardians of underage players will be required to complete an online Health Questionnaire once prior to their return to GAA Activities.

· Adult players and parents/guardians of underage players will then be required to declare, before each training session/game, that their health status has not changed.

· An online system for the health questionnaire will be provided centrally by the GAA. This is the only system that should be used.

As a vital part of the return of Gaelic Games, ALL adult players, ALL parents of underage players & ALL managers, coaches & Covid-19 Team Supervisors MUST complete this online eLearning module before returning to any training. https://courses.gaa.ie/Covid19ClubEd/#/ It should only take 10-15 minutes. Once you finish the module, you will receive a certificate. This is important, fill your name into the relevant space and print it off or take a screen shot and give to your manager at your first training session The online Health Questionnaire can be completed via (http://returntoplay.gaa.ie) and can be seen by the club and the relevant Covid-19 Supervisor. Also, plans will be communicated next week on specific Covid-19 education for referees and games development staff, e.g. protocols for Cúl Camps and sample coaching activities.

UPDATED ADVICE ON FACILITIES & GUIDANCE ON DEALING WITH POSITIVE CASES (14TH JULY 2020)

Please find below, and in the attached document, important updates and guidance that is being forwarded to you at the request of the Ard Stiúrthóir.

Arising from a meeting of the GAA’s Covid Advisory Group last night, it was agreed on a risk stratification basis that the following GAA facilities should remain closed after July 20th and until further notice:

It was agreed that Handball alleys could be opened from July 20th but can only be used subject to the guidance and control measures outlined in the GAA Handball Return to Play Document.

FUTURE PITCH BOOKINGS

As we reopen our pitches for teams both training & playing matches, we have updated the strict protocols for late July & early August to make sure the correct procedures are being taken. We are doing our best to ensure that every team gets a fair opportunity to a Safe Return to Play Gaelic Games and gets the required time on the field towards training & playing matches. The relevant Chairpersons & Secretaries of the clubs have been notified of this and will speak to mentors in the coming days regarding such. If you are a mentor and you have not been notified of the protocols, please contact the Chairperson of your club.
