The results of the Preliminary round of the Junior A Football Championship game against Midleton are not to hand at the time of going to press , but we wish all the lads the very best of luck against neighbours Midleton , more of which can be found here next week.

An exceptionally cold Monday night , with temperatures plunging as low as minus 3 degrees , saw neighbours in blue and gold battle for the two league points on offer , and , despite the artic conditions that prevailed throughout , both sides churned out an entertaining encounter with the outcome in doubt up to the final whistle. With Timmy's charges in final stages of preparations for next week's Championship fare , it was surprising that we settled slowly , and , having fallen behind early on , we retired at half time in arrears by 1.09 to 0.04 . Our hosts were particularly effective in turning over ball in the opening period , punishing any handling errors on our behalf.

The second period saw constant Lisgoold domination , outscoring our neighbours by 6 points , despite creating a number of goaling opportunities that we spurned , and which Carrig repelled successfully . Having created ample chances to succeed , mainly based on the aerial dominance of towering midfield duo Eoin Riordan and JP O'Brien , we ran out short at the final whistle in what was a real ding dong battle between evenly matched neighbours which will surely stand both sides in good stead in their Championship preparations ahead.

An end to end thriller , conjuring up four goals , and a total of twenty three scores in total , saw hosts Carrig annex the brace of league points against neighbours Lios gCul at Carrigtwohill. Despite scoring more times than our opponents , the old adage that" goals win matches" was never truer as the three green flags raised by Carrig attacks outweighed our single . Our solitary major , however , was a beauty , created by the clever artistry of Charles Smart, and finished with aplomb by the cultured left boot of the impressive Dave Barry. The ageless Jerry O'Connell was accuracy personified in his free taking duties , with the penetrating runs of Noel Connery and Moss Mulcahy leading to many point opportunities through fouls drawn by the marauding pair, which Jer punished repeatedly. All in all , a game that could , and maybe should have won , but , with a further five subs introduced through the hour ( and this on our second team ) the strength of this panel will have pleased the management team , and , no doubt , have given a few sleepless nights to watching A manager Tim Mulcahy in formulating his starting XV for next weeks big encounter.


The lotto jackpot continues to grow . With no winner of last week's Jackpot Prize , the rollover now has reached €3,000.00 . Last week saw no overall winner yet again , but consolation prizes were won by Sarah Foley, Nellie Cotter, Frances O Riordan and John T O Keeffe. The Lotto Organising Committee would like to once again thank all those who continue to support this vital source of Club fundraising , and wish all ticket holders the very best of luck in the draw next Tuesday .
