Rebel Óg Central Under 14 Premier 2 Hurling Challenge Cup Semi Final

Killeagh /Itas 4-10 Shandrum 6-14

On Sunday Sept 6th, the under 14s took on Shandrum in the shield semi final in Páirc Uí Chinnéide.

The visitors got off to a good start securing a 1-1 lead in the first 5 minutes. However, Sean Meade followed with a point and a fast goal and the game was on. The lads played well in the first half but were 1-4 down at the half time whistle.

The lads came out fighting in the second half and saw great performances from all the lads and many fine scores from Fionn Murphy, Ben Walsh and Sean Meade reducing Shandrums lead to just 2 points. However, the visitors battled on and won the game. Well done & hard luck to the lads and coaches.

Football is next up in a fortnight vs Carrigaline at home.


While we have full restrictions on spectators allowed to attend games, Killeagh GAA Club where possible will attempt to cover as many games for live scoring purposes on the mobile phone app Whats The Scor.

More information of the app & much more can be found through the PRO or you can download the app right now, find Killeagh GAA Club and follow the action by ‘Like’ by the heart button on the bottom right of the page. You will receive regular updates of games upcoming, lotto results, notifications etc.


We ask that all people adhere to the restrictions that are in place, that no spectators are allowed at matches for the next fortnight at least until September 14th. Please respect your health and the health of the people within the environs of the club. We do not want to bring Covid-19 into our local community.


With training & games returned, a call for all our mentors and coaches to fulfil their duties of completing their respective Coaching & Safeguarding courses with a matter of urgency. 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, 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. Anyone that has an issue with it or has a query on the above subject, please contact the GAA Children’s Officer Grainne Fitzgerald on 087-6290214 or email


There have been a few changes to our Health Guidelines below. Over the next week as players, mentors & parents return to Páirc Uí Chinnéide, please take note of the following points that should be noted by all members;

1. All players should be coming to the field with the line of “Get in, Train & Get out!” over the next couple of weeks until further notice. Players should arrive no earlier than 10 minutes for your scheduled session and leave within 5 minutes of the completion of the session.

2. We ask that all players should arrive to Páirc Uí Chinnéide in separate cars (ie. No car-sharing) & that if parents could where possible stay in the cars for the duration of the training session or utilize the use of our walkway. We would recommend not to hang around in groups, adhere to Social Distancing guidelines and not to be leaning on the fencing as it could be very easy to spread to virus by touching the fence and passing it to someone else.

3. A directive from Croke Park states that "Club gyms are to be closed and access suspended". Therefore, our Gym will be closed until further notice.

4. To minimise the risk of the Coronavirus spreading, our club shop will remain closed until further notice.

5. All dressing room facilities are to remain closed until further notice as the Covid-19 advisory committee must meet to issue advice on this. We ask the ALL MEMBERS adhere to this directive of the closure.

6. Our walkway Páirc Uí Chinnéide is in use for all in the community. When using this facility, please adhere to Social Distancing guidelines (2m apart) and walk in an anti-clockwise direction keeping the Main Pitch to your left-hand side. Please keep off the newly seeded banks and grass margins as these just starting to grow.

7. We ask that people using our walkway should be located within the county or within the 20km recommended radius and that you ‘Stay Local’. If shopping, support Local Businesses.

8. We ask all players, club members, parents of children in our Underage section & spectators to read the ‘Guidelines on Safe Return to Gaelic Games’ which is attached below. This is a living but important and essential document to understand on how to return to some normality in the coming weeks. Before each training session/match, we ask that each player answers the Health Questionnaire as per the Return to Play protocols.

9. Please follow all guidelines issued to the public by Government and HSE and especially those on hand washing, cough etiquette, face coverings, hygiene and social distancing both indoors and outdoors.

10. Please offer appropriate support to your neighbours, elderly people & those at risk in our community - checking in with a regular phone call is a good way to do this or helping them by purchasing their shopping during the week.

11. There will be toilets open for emergency use.

12. If you are unwell, feel sick or have any symptoms of Covid-19, please do not come to Páirc Uí Chinnéide, stay at home and self-isolate as per Public Health advice.

We will update instructions over the coming weeks, it will be changed here and notified on the Club Text & our Social Media. For more information on HSE Guidelines, please check out the posters below. For more local information, please keep in touch with our Social Media or contact any club member.

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. 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 ( 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.
