U14 Girls Make It A Double!!
It was our U14 boys who became North Cork Football Champions last week & this week the girls did our club proud.
Congratulation to the girls on on winning the North Cork D2 Final V Mournabbey on Wednesday last 24th May in Mournabbey.
A hugely sporting game played out in glourious sunshine with great support from both sides. Kildorrery started the stronger side putting two points on the board before Mournabbey responded. Hall time score was Kildorrery 1-4 to Mournabbey 0-2, the second half ebbed & flowed with scores exchanged by boths sides. Kildorrery pulled away in the last fifteen minutes with decisive goals sealing the win for Kildorrery.
Full time score Kildorrery 4-7 to Mournabbey 1-5
Well done to all the players, coaches, mentors involved.
We had a very busy Saturday last with our younger juvenile boys & girls teams out in force at blitzs both at home, and in Ballyhooly. Well done to all for participating.
Our U12 Camogie girls had a fantastic league win over Nemo Rangers in Cork last Saturday. Well done girls.
Our Junior Ladies had a very impressive football win over Castlemagnier last Wednesday night in Kildorrery. This takes them into the North Cork Football Final against Mitchelstown, date of final to be confirmed.
Our U16 juvenile Gaa football team suffered a marginal defeat in the North Cork D3 Final on Sunday morning at home against St Dominic’s. Despite a great team performance & also relying on a numbers of players from the U14 panel, the boys worked very hard & gave a fantastic account of themselves.

Intermediates Play Valley Rovers
Kildorrery played a well fancied Valley Rovers Team at the local venue last Sunday. This was a highly competitive enjoyable contest. Both teams were level after 6 minutes with 2 points a piece. John O'Connor goaled after 10 minutes with James Keating and David Hunter pointing shortly afterwards.
Valley Rovers dominated the remaining 15 minutes of the first half scoring 1-07 to Kildorrery's 3 points leaving the half time score 1 - 10 to 1 - 05 for Valley Rovers.
Kildorrery switched James Keating to mid field for the second half
and along with Peter O'Brien they inspired a terrific second half performance for the local team. Kildorrery also benefited with the introduction of several substitutions to add fresh legs in the last quarter of the match.
The final score of a very enjoyable match went to Valley Rovers 2.21 to Kildorrery 2 - 18.
As with previous weeks Kildorrery were missing some players but it's good to see more players getting opportunities to start or to come on during the game.
Denis Motherway referred the game very well.
