GAA Fixtures & Results

Special mention for our Junior B hurlers who lifted the Eamonn Flemming Cup in winning the 2020 East Cork Junior B Hurling Championship. Next up is the winners of Blarney & Inniscarra. Additionally, well done to the Fé10 who played their 1st Rebel Óg matches this week (see more in Juvenile Notes section).

The coming week is a very busy week on the fixture front. Best of luck to all our teams and in particular our Junior C footballers who take on Aghada in the final of the 2020 East Cork Championship next Wednesday evening. Another final up for decision this week (Friday) is for the Magpie All-Stars. See later in the notes more details of the Active Community Award that they have been nominated for.

We will endeavor to keep the club website up to date with fixtures and results as well as posting results, as much as possible, on twitter and facebook.

Juvenile

Fé8 Notes

There was much excitement at Clonmult Park on Saturday morning last as the first Fé8 hurling match of the year took place with Bishopstown the visitors. We had 40 young magpies wearing the famous black and white spread across 6 teams. All matches were very exciting with some great skill on display as the lads continue to improve. Keep up the good work and the practice at home. Thanks to everyone who came to show their support for the lads. Thanks to Bishopstown for making the trip and for the very sporting matches. We will be back training on Tuesday night with football training at Park South. Next Saturday will be an away trip to Ballincollig for the first football match of the year.  

Fé8 v Bishopstown 12.06.21

Fé11 Notes

Saturday saw the start of our Rebel Óg Hurling fixtures v Bishopstown at home in Clonmult in glorious sunshine. Coaches could not be prouder of the effort the lads gave in the heat. Some brilliant hurling on display. Well done all.

Fé11 v Bishopstown

Fé13 Notes

The Fé13 C3 lads made the short trip to Carrigtwohill last Tuesday evening for the first C3 hurling match of the year. After a difficult first half where Carrigtwohill were dominant, the lads really come into the match in the second half and battled right through to the end. With the spirit shown by the lads throughout the match, we’re sure that there will be better results over the coming months. Final score Carrigtwohill 8-09 Midleton 2-03. The panel for the match was: Adam Spillane, Cuan Twomey, Dara Birdthistle, Fionn Bohan, Jack Cahill, James Carey, James O’Meara, Jamie O’Donovan, Jason Morley, Michael Allegrini, Michael Barrett, Patrick Collins, Patrick O’Dowd, Peader Egan, Rian Casey, Riain McCormack, Ruairi O’Riordan, Sean Gregory. Thanks to Peader, Riain and Jack from the Fé12 group who helped us out on the night.

 

Fé13 C3 v Carrigtwohill

The first P1 Hurling match of the year was a home fixture against Sarsfields last Friday evening. After a promising opening quarter there was only the minimum between the teams at the first water break. However, in the second quarter the visitors scored two goals to see the half time score of 2-06 to 0-05. With the aid of a slight breeze the visitors were dominant in the third quarter, scoring 3-05 in this period. However, credit to the lads who never gave up and finished the match strongly scoring 1-03 in the last quarter. There will be better days ahead for this group of players no doubt. Final score Midleton 1-09 Sarsfields 6-14. The panel for the match was Cian Lawton, Cuan Twomey, Dara Birdthistle, Darragh Mullins, David Kelly, Ewan Murphy, Fionn Bohan, Harry Waterman, Jack Walsh, James Carey, Jason Morley, Max Murphy, Patrick O’Dowd, Rian Casey, Ruairi O’Riordan, Scott Dunlea, Senan Carroll, Shane O’Mahony. Next match for the Fé13 group is an away football match v Kiltha Óg on Friday 18th.

U13 Imokilly Final (2020) V Sars

On Tuesday evening last luck was not on our sides as our girls who finally got to play the U13 Imokilly league final that had been postponed from September last year. Our girls came up against a really strong Sars side and were only 1-3 to 1 point down at half time with plenty to play for with a strong wind behind them in the second half. Unfortunately we did not take our chances and although the girls battled away Sars ran out worthy winners in the end. Many thanks to PJ Ahern (Carrigtohill) for refereeing and the parents who braved the elements to support us.

 

Well done to Sarsfields on the win.
