Ladies Result’s

U16 girls had a great win over Ballycastle Gaels on Monday night last in the North Cork D Football Final. First time for the club to have an U16 team & also with only 6 girls up to the age, a lot was expected from our u14s. Well done to all the players and coaches and we look forward to the county championship starting weekend September 3rd. Keep up the hard work.

Busy week for much of the same panel, our U14 girls had a tough North Cork B Football Final on Thursday night last against Killshannig at home. In extremely warm conditions, the girls worked so hard & stayed within reach of their opponents for the first half. Killshannig pulled away in the second half and were the stronger team on the night. The girls still qualify for the county championship commencing on August 27th.

Kildorrery defeat Saint Nicks in Intermediate Football Championship

Our footballers took to the field Sunday in Glenville in this second match of the football round robin competition against St Nicks. The weather was warm and you could tell by the scorched grass that conditions for the players would be a huge consideration. There was plenty of water in supply!

We knew we would have to register a win here to give ourselves every chance of progressing and the match could be summed up by saying Kildorrery put in an exceptional effort and performance that showed we can play good football when required. Following on from last years relegation play off final win against Kinsale we spoke of how we were starting to see the emergence of fine young players who would aid the succession plan for our club over the next few years. It was very evident on Sunday with sterling performances from those new members to the team. Richie Hurley, Luke Keating stamped their mark and accounted for themselves well with Keating opening the encounter with a goal inside the first 2 minutes. The half time score saw us lead a goal and five to four points and some of those scores were carved out after tremendously efficient football amidst the heat in Glenville. Will fouhy continued to be influential working the ball carefully through the channels that presented themselves. St nicks did respond to double point execution from Jamie O' Gorman but one felt that Kildorrery just seemed to be in control after the first half.

O' Gorman opened the second half with a point and Hurley took a very well taken point by punching over the bar. Pierce Piggott was introduced for the injured fouhy and Pierce had a huge influence on the game. His athleticism and ability to read a game was super. I would also mark that our keeper tony Watson was dealing brilliantly with his handling superb all day. We had points from Peter and Kieran and nicks were able to tap one over and with forty seven minutes gone we led a goal and nine to seven. That was to be the last nicks point as kildorrery goaled again per peter and tacked over some lovely scores from Darren mcnamara, Jamie O' Gorman. James mceniry was ever influential and at one point and battened down ball which he won in an aerial dual which led to a very significant score.

The final score line was Kildorrery two goals and thirteen to St Nicks seven points. This was a great team effort. Hard work and attitude were the winners on the day. Moments that saw Ian butler chasing a ball forty yards to recover on the opponents own forty five ensure that the right result would be got on the day.

Well done to all involved. The next match is fixed against glanworth on September 3rd. We know this is going to be a tough encounter with the superb outfit glanworth is so the preparation will need to be at a high level. Other substitutions made were Timmy O' Sullivan for Kieran Hurley , Sean Cunningham for James O' Sullivan, Cathal Harrington for Luke Keating and John Hunter for Shane Fitzgerald. Every one who took the field had an impact from the start to the finish. The panel of players were exceptional. We’ll keep the head down now and drive on for the next day.



Our next Intermediate hurling outing will be Saturday 27th and the following week we will play Glanworth on September 3rd. Please come out and support the club.
