Momentum moves on in the Club with this being a big big week on and off the field .

Junior Hurling v Sars

A bitterly cold night faced our side and Sars under lights on Tuesday night . Both sides free takers were accurate in the opening half , and it took half time introductee Jamie Woods to rifle our first point from play shortly after the interval .

Successive scores from play from John Cashman , Maurice O'Connell and Alan Connery upped the pace , and , as manager Mike Woods emptied his bench to afford a very welcome workout for his side , the cold night was defeated as a heart-warming tie kept us entertained throughout .

Minor Football League

Lios gCul 5.09 Shamrocks 0.11

Another win for Owen Hegarty's side gained another pair of league points in the All County Minor football League with a cracking performance against visitors Shamrocks at a brisk and sunny Pairc Lios gCul on Sunday afternoon .

A virtuoso performance from John McCarthy who notched a personal tally of 3.05 powered his side to victory where all but three points came from open play .

Goals certainly win matches , and with a full handful of green flags raised , this proved to be the difference between the sides at the end . Bill Whelan and Cathal Cashman were the others who scored three pointers for the home side.

A clean sheet for net minder John Cashman was equally pivotal on the day where others to impress included Kyle Devine , Andrew Donovan and Micky Connery.

Under Age Games

Loads of action on the field this weekend , with our Under 9's and 10's playing Kilta Og under lights at Dungourney on Friday night , the Under 8's facing Midleton on Saturday morning , and our Under 12's competing in the "Primary Game" at half time in the Cork v Galway game in The Pairc on Sunday .

Building Development Meeting On Thursday this week (10th March at 9 pm in Lisgoold Community Centre) sees probably the most crucial meeting yet in relation to the Building Development Plans . As well as affording an opportunity for an update on the plans for the new Dressing Rooms , we will launch the "Standing Order Scheme" . Costing €2 per week, we see this as the key factor in our Club plans . Please come along on Thursday to hear and see more . We could do with your support .
