Kildorrery Under 16B2 hurlers are Co. champions after a deserved 2-10 to 1-7 win over Doneraile, at Kilavullen, last Sunday afternoon. On a well prepared venue, where understandably, underfoot conditions were heavy after Saturday’s persistent rain, the game provided some entertaining passages of hurling.  A disappointing aspect of this fixture was the fact that the referee...

Our Intermediate footballers never reached their full potential when going under to a  better Kanturk side in the Co. Championship semi-final, at Charleville, last Saturday afternoon.  At the end of a somewhat one-sided hour’s football Kanturk qualified on the score 0-19 to 2-6, to meet Mitchelstown in the Final.  From the throw-in, Kildorrery struggled to contain...

On Saturday evening last, at windswept and rain-soaked Watergrasshill, our Intermediate footballers qualified for the Co. championship semi-final by virtue of a deserved 0-13 to 0-9 win over city side, St Finbarr’s.

KILDORRERY  3-18  AGHADA  3-21 This was the undeserved result of our Championship game versus Aghada, played at Rathcormac, last Saturday evening.

On Tuesday evening of last week, our Under 21B hurlers bowed out of the championship at the hands of a much stronger Kilshannig fifteen. The final score was Kilshannig 3-19  Kildorrery 1-10.   For various reasons, Kildorrery were forced to field a depleted side, with the selectors having just fifteen players available.  Our boys got off to a good start and in fact,...

Our Intermediate hurlers just did about enough to advance to the next round of the championship when they overcame a second half St. Finbarr’s rally, at Rathcormac, last Monday evening. The final score-line read Kildorrery 2-13 St. Finbarr’s 0-17. However, they can thank, in no small way the dramatic injury time save by our goalie, Ian Butler. Kildorrery got...

‘’Life’s battle doesn’t always go to the strongest or fastest man, but sooner or later the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.’’ Dogged self-belief and a real passion to play the game for what it should be got our lads over the line on Sunday playing a robust and at times attrition like football that kept us out of reach for good parts of thi...

KILDORRERY 1-14 WATERGRASSHILL 0-10 This was the encouraging score-line when the final whistle was blown when our Intermediate hurlers hosted Watergrasshill in this Division 2 league game, on Tuesday evening of last week.

KILDORRERY 0-12 EIRE OG 3-15 This was the disappointing result at the end of our preliminary round in the Intermediate hurling championship, played at Rathcormac, last Friday evening. However, we can take some solace in the fact that five of possibly, our first choice players were unavailable, mainly through injury and so with the back-door system in place, we can sti...

KILDORRERY 1-6 KILLAVULLEN 1-10 At Ganworth, last Friday evening our Under 21C footballers were a little disappointing when, after failing to cope with Kilavullen’s second half effort, in this championship quarter- final clash, they went under on the score-line of 1-6 to 1-10. From the throw-in, Kildorrery started well and had two points on the board, before Kil...

The two league games scheduled for last week-end fell victims to the bad weather. The home venue was deemed unplayable for the Intermediate game versus Meelin on Friday night and the away game in the Division 2 league v Liscarroll/Churchatown Gaels at Liscarroll suffered a similar fate.
