Minor Hurling Championship

Cois Bhride 2-12 Fourmilewater 1-14

Last Wednesday evening Cois Bhride and Fourmilewater contested a veryclose and hard fought Minor Hurling Championship game in wet conditions in Ballymacarbry. In a first half that saw both sides exchanging points on a number of occasions it was a goal from a 21yard free, brilliantly finished to the net by Ryan Grey, that separated the sides at half time, with the score line Cois Bhride 1-06 Fourmilewater 0-08.
In the second half Cois Bhride aided by the breeze, added on points from Stefan Tobin, Ryan Grey and Mikey Tobin. However with county minor Conor Gleeson accurate from frees Fourmilewater leveled the game before a brilliant individual goal put Fourmilewater a goal up. With only 4 minutes remaining a long range free from Jake Beecher went all the way to the net to leave the scores level once again. As full time approached it was Cois Bhride who finished stronger with Ryan Grey putting over two frees. Fourmilewater pushed hard for a winning goal but some heroic defending from the Cois Bhride defense resulting in us holding on for a deserving win.

U13 Hurling Championship

Cois Bhride 3-03 St Pats 1-01

Our U13 hurlers played their third game in the Western Championship last Thursday evening when we hosted St Pats. The game was played in very wet conditions as the torrential showers made hurling very difficult. However playing with the strong wind in the first half we opened the scoring with two pointed frees from Kieran Crawford. Then a great passing move resulted in William Cunningham finishing the ball to the net. St Pats then replied with a point which was to be the last score of the half as both teams struggled to find scores in the difficult conditions. Playing against the wind in the second half we started strongly, with two goals from Ciaran McCarthy and another pointed free from Kieran Crawford giving us an 11 point lead. However St Pats fought back with a goal in the closing minutes and it took some brilliant saves from Dean Beecher to deny them adding to their tally. In the end we held out for a deserved win. We face An Gaeltacht in our next game away on August 15th.

Well Done

Well done to the Shamrocks U12 Ladies Football Team who drew with St Olivers in the County Final last Saturday morning in Fraher Field. The team was only assembled at the start of the year so it’s a great achievement to reach a County Final in their first year. The replay is due to be played in early September.


Congratulations to Oisin O’Gorman from Lismore on winning a gold and two bronze medals in the World Transplant Games in Durban, South Africa. At 12 years old Oisin was the youngest member of the Ireland team. Oisin has played against Cois Bhride on many occasions and is an accomplished hurler and gaelic footballer.
