Cois Bhride GAA - Kindly sponsored by Cunningham's Hardware Tallow

 Under 14 Hurling Div 2:

We were defeated by Clonea in our last league game by 4 pts in Tallow last Monday, this was another disappointing display with only 4/5 lads performing to their capabilities. The competition is knockout from now on so we have to improve an awful lot if we`re to make any further progress.

 MHC Cois Bhride 2-10, Passage 1-12.

Cois Bhride minor hurlers booked their place in the minor hurling semi-final with a hard-fought one point win over Passage in Tallow last Wednesday. Despite playing below their best on the night, in fairness Cois Bhride held their nerve to beat a very tenacious Passage team who really pushed us all the way. The first half was very even but it took an opportunist goal from Ryan Grey to leave the scores level at half time. After a few choice words at the break we upped our game somewhat in the second half and when Edward Hynes scored a fine goal we hit the front only for Passage to come right back. Two points from Kelvyn O' Farrell kept us in front, and with Ryan Grey keeping the scoreboard ticking over from frees and play we edged out a narrow one point win. The selectors weren't too happy with the display, but credit to Passage who played with no little heart and skill, and it took a big effort from all the team to get over the line against them.

Though a lot of our players didn't play up to par on the night, Jake Neville, Ian Beecher, and John Paul Lucey battled away all night and drove the team on to get a result. We still have one group match left to play, against De La Salle in Knockanore on Tuesday night which will decide the semi-final pairings. Panel; David Tobin, Robbie Geary, Jake Beecher, Darragh Mulcahy, Ian Beecher, Jordan Henley, Cathal Geary, John Paul Lucey, Jake Neville, Dylan Mangan, Kelvyn O' Farrell, Edward Hynes, Shane Ryan, Ryan Grey, Darragh Buckley, Padraig Roche, Alan Buckley, Edward O' Neill, Tom Roche, Billy Hynes.

 Under 7 & Under 8 blitz

Our under 6, 7 and under 8’s all played in a Blitz on Saturday morning kindly organized by ‘An Ring’ juvenile GAA club. All of the boys and girls played some great hurling winning all but one of their matches when our under 8’s were beaten by Cappoquin on a score line or  6 goals to 6 goals and 1 point. Thanks to An Ring, Dungarvan and Cappoquin for some really sporting and well contested games. We will play Lismore on Sunday morning next in Tallow at 11am, details will be sent to all parents during the week.

 Annual Fundraiser

Our annual draw took place last Friday night & with kind sponsorship from East Cork Oil, Cunningham's Hardware, Tallow & Tallow Fuel Company (Mike O'Neill) we had a very satisfactory fundraiser this year.  1st Prize of 2 tickets to last Sunday's All Ireland Hurling Final went to Michael O'Keeffe, Parkdotia, 2nd Prize of 500 ltrs of home heating oil (sponsored by East Cork Oil) was won by Seamus Murphy Carrignabhear and 3rd Prize of €50 went to Lindsay Murphy, Kilwatermoy.  Thanks again to everyone who supported our raffle and to all the club members who sold tickets and especially to those who helped out at the Cois Bhride stand on the day of Tallow Horse Fair.
