Glenville GAA

On the playing front things have taken a back seat for the time of the year that’s in it. The weather has played havoc with fixtures over the last week or two with the replay of the minor football league final v KilthaOg falling by the wayside and also the semi final of the county minor league v Valley Rovers falling foul to the adverse weather conditions so these games wont be played now till after xmas.

The AGM was held on Wednesday night last in the community hall. Outgoing chairman Enda Moloney spoke of the progress on ands off the field during the year and the ongoing work carried out on both pitches throughout the year. The next phase is the erection of state of the art floodlights in the second pitch in Fouhys and should be in completed by the start of the playing season. On the playing front the Intermediate team after a slow start to the season were very unlucky to bow out to two late goals in Pairc Ui Rinn against Carrigaline in the replay. The Juniors won the Roundy House cup. The U21s lost the delayed 2009 final to Glanmire and put up a good show in the current campaign. The minor season is still not completed with the replayed league final still to come and also reached the championship final going down to Erins Own in the final. The U14s won the league final, while the U12 and U11 did likewise in what was a very good juvenile year for the club.

County Championship draws

With the relegation of Glanmire from the Premier to Intermediate grade last year Glenville are the only east cork side in the draw for the Premier Intermediate Football championship for 2011.Glenville received a very tough draw with Mallow our opponents in the opening round. Mallow who won this championship a few years ago were relegated from Senior grade the year before last and will be a serious test for our side. Glenville are in division 2 of the county league this year after narrowly missing out on a final spot face Beara in the opening league game on Feb 20th.Aghada the following week on Feb 27th while away again to Bantry on the first Sunday in march.

The hurlers play Tracton in the opening round of the hurling equivilant. Tracton put us out of the championship last year in the third round so will be anxious to reverse the result on this occasion.
