CORK COUNTY FÉILE

Our Féile team travelled to Mourneabbey on Bank Holiday Monday to take part in the County Section having qualified from the East Cork division. They had three very tough games against Mourneabbey, Éire Óg and Kinsale. Unfortunately, it is the end of the road for us but great credit is due to the girls who gave it their all. Well done to you all, to the Mentors and Parents for their continued support.

FE10

Our lads hosted Sarsfields Fe10 on Saturday last in a Hurling Challenge game. We had 30 players in attendance for this broken into three teams of ten.

Our lads did very well in all the games getting great scores throughout.  We would like to thank Sarsfields for making the trip to us also on Saturday. Once again thanks to all the parents in our Group for their great support.

FE12

Rebel Og East group six hurling threw in on Tuesday last at a wonderfully sunny Park south.

Despite a big effort from the boys and a much tighter second half the result went against us.  Well done boys.

Final score: Midleton 3-6 Blackrock 6-3.

The on Bank Holiday Monday our Fé12 boys took on Douglas 2 for their second outing in the Rebel Óg East group 6 football grading League. The final score didn't reflect the effort the made by the boys.

Final score: Midleton 0-2 Douglas 5-13 (See team above).

On Tuesday night, the Fé12 boys out again in the group 2 football grading League. Despite a fine performance and fighting to the final whistle, we unfortunately came up short. Well done on a great effort.

Final score: Midleton 1-5 St Finbarrs 4-6 (see below).

FÉ15

Our attention was on the Feile Football (see pic above). Our group was tough with Fermoy and St Nicks. We had a great win against a very good Fermoy outfit, with Lochlann Stewart scoring the vital goal to put day light between the sides. We ran out 1-3 to 0-1 winners. We played immediately after and a much fresher St Nicks side caught us early with a goal and a point. Despite having plenty of chances, we came out on the wrong side of a 2-4 to 0-2 defeat. With Nicks beating Fermoy this put an end to the Féile drea, for 2022. Overall the Féile was a good experience with all players getting game time in.

We travelled to Castlemartyr on Wednesday evening last to take on Kiltha Og in the East Football league. We were aiming to make it four wins from the opening four matches. After a tricky hour's football we came away with a 5-7 to 3-1 victory, with good displays from Noah Cahill, Ben Troy, Diarmud Lester to name a few. This was our last football action until after the Junior Cert. We now turn our attention to hurling over the next week or so. All fixtures are confirmed.
