Junior A Hurling Championship - On Sunday evening Kevin O'Connor's charges headed to Castlelyons for their first round of championship againgst Carrig na bhFear. When any small club can field a second team it's great, what's even better is when that team can compete and be competitive against another club's first team. There was little between the sides in the opening exchanges, a puck of the ball in fact and at half time the scoreline read Carrig na bhFear 0-7 Killeagh 0-4. Carrig extended that lead to 3 pucks of the ball before we found the range and pegged them back to a puck of the ball once more and thoughts of a victory looked possible. However a couple of long ramge efforts pucshe Carrig ahead. Never the less a great performance from the boys in green. It finished on a scoreline of Carrig na bhFear 0-15 Killeagh 0-9.
Team: Shane Scully, Taghg O'Connor, Stephen O'Brien, Eddie Cashman, Paul Motherway, John Walsh, Clint Galvin, Brendan Keniry, David O'Keefe, Kevin Lane, Liam Kelly, Noel O'Connor, Alan Keniry, Stephen Murphy, Daniel Walsh.
Senior Hurling Championship - Killeagh 1-14 vs Cloyne 1-11.
On Friday night in Castlemartyr we came in search of a victory and by god did we get it. Manys a pundit that wrote us off, we even had a few locals that doubted us as well. But when Padraig McGrath in his rousing team talk asked those men around him to shed blood if needs be for each other and this club then that victory would be ours. You would believe anything was possible on this night and we proved that we are entitled to our senior hurling status. Everything that needs to be read and said by all those pundits and sports writers will have been said and the game will have been well and truly dissected so that's one less job for me, but what they wont say is how proud we are of those men on the field for what can only be described as a gallant performance. We eagerly await the next round.
A special mention to our main man between the sticks, Bernard Rochford, who lines out for the Kerry Senior Hurling team in the Christy Ring Cup Final this Saturday in Croke Park. An honour he richly deserves. We wish him the best of luck.
