Southern Star 8th October - 2016-10-03

Bandon GAA Club is now firmly in the grip of County Final fever after the Footballers heroics last Saturday afternoon in Kilmurry ensured two trips to Pairc Ui Rinn over the coming weekends. A fantastic first half was again the foundation for this victory over tournament favourites Kilnamartyra and the club will play Rockchapel in the final on Sunday week at 13;45.

There is a County Final Big-Breakfast event in the Pavilion on Sunday morning from 9.00 to 11.00 a.m., €5.00 per child, €10.00 per Adult or €20.00 per family. Bookings can be made by contacting Eunice Doyle or Hilary O’Driscoll and this is an ideal opportunity to have some food and craic before the main event (Bandon v Fermoy in the PIHC Final) at 2.00 p.m. in Cork.

The Under 16 Hurlers gave a very good account of themselves when going down 1-12 to 1-15 against Sam Maguires at a rain-soaked League Final last Friday evening. The lads led 1-7 to 0-2 at half time.
