U.10 Hurling blitz.  Our u/10s were in Ballyduff last Saturday to take part in the u/10 blitz where they put in a great effort with some great team work to top their group.  They beat Holycross/Ballycahill in their 1st game, The Brickeys in their 2nd while losing by just 1 point to Cappoquinn in their 3rd game but this still sees them through to next week.  Well done everyone on the team and to their mentors!


We would like to say well done to the boys from Knockanore NS who had a great win in the Hurling School's final last Wednesday evening in Dungarvan against Kilrossanty.

Our Minors & The Brickeys will have to go again to decide who will be County Football Champions after their game finished in a draw at Fraher Field last Wednesday night.  It was a very exciting game and well done to all the players who played so well on the night.  The replay fixture has yet to be decided.


St. Saviours 2-7 Cois Bhride 2-6, Our U-16 footballers were defeated by the narrowest of margins in their county final played in Fraher Field last Saturday morning. Playing with the aid of a light breeze in the first half our lads were slow to start, they looked a little nervous while St. Saviours took the game to us. In saying that, the teams were level at 4 points all with 28 minutes of the first half played. Our points were scored by Charley, Daragh, Ben and Ian but we then conceded a goal an a point in the last 2 minutes of the half.

The second half started as the first finished and within ten minutes after a point from Ben, we conceded another goal and a point to leave us 7 points down 2-6 to 5 points. Once again this team showed great character by not giving up, we took over throughout the field and were rewarded with a penalty at 45 minutes which Daragh converted. When he scored his second goal 5 minutes later and a point from Billy shortly after it brought the teams level with a few minutes to go.

Unfortunately the last score of the game and the winning point went to St. Saviours in the 60th minute. The lads can be very proud of themselves and contesting a county final was a great achievement.
