Southern Star 22nd April - 2017-04-18

Our Minors recorded their first victory of the year when they overcame Ahan Gaels 0-16 to 1-11 in the Hurling League last Thursday evening in Bandon.

The game was also notable as it saw the welcome return of Gavin O’Connell to competitive action after over-coming long-term injuries. 

Team: C Farrell, C Walsh, B Donegan, J Collins, M Laffan, C McCarthy, E Hetherington, P Lang, C Calnan 0-5, N McCarthy, E McSweeney, A Galvin, H Lillis 0-2, A O’Mahony 0-6, B O’Mahony 0-2, Subs; G O’Connell 0-1, J Calnan 0-1.

Our Under 14 footballers journey in the Feile Peil ended at the quarter final stage in Ballinora last Wednesday evening when losing out to their hosts on a score of 2-10 to 3-1.

Indeed Ballinora went onto to win the final at this level over Ibane Gaels over last weekend.

The under 15 footballers participated in the 10th Annual Pa O’Brien Memorial Tournament at Fermoy on Saturday, defeating Fermoy 3-08 to 1-01, Austin Stacks 2-08 to 0-03 before losing in the final to Ballinteer St Johns on score of 01-09 to 0-02.

Our adult teams return to Hurling action this week.  The Junior A Hurlers host Ballinascarthy this Wednesday evening 19th April at 8pm and we host Kilbrittain at 7.15pm on Friday 21st April.

Our Senior Hurlers are away to Killeagh at 2pm on Sunday 23rd in the RedFM sponsored league.

Finally all help will be welcomed on Saturday evening when we host the SFC game between Nemo Rangers and O’Donovan Rossa at 6.30pm
