Our long-awaited Intermediate hurling championship quarter final versus Eire Og, will now be played this Saturday evening, at Rathcormac with a 5 o’clock throw-in. It is just over twelve weeks since they played their last championship game against Ballinhassig at Watergrasshill, on July 1 st . In the meantime they have played a number of league and challenge games. The latest of these was at the home venue, last Saturday night, when they played Co. Limerick side Mungret, winning 1-22 to 0-22. This game was used by the selectors to give all the panel game time. We wish team and management the best of luck on Saturday.
There was no winner of the €6,600 jackpot when the Club’s fortnightly lotto draw took place at Walsh’s Corner House, last Saturday night. The numbers drawn were: 12, 14, 15 and 17.

NORTH CORK FINAL
The Club very efficiently and successfully hosted the North Cork junior hurling championship final between neighbouring teams Harbour Rover and Ballyhooly, last Sunday evening. The game attracted a huge gathering of fans from all corners of the Division. However, Club members turned out enthusiastically to ensure that fixture was well catered for in all respects. A big ‘thank you’ is due to all for their co-operation. At the end of the game it was the Glanworth boys who were crowned Champions with a winning score of 1-19 to Ballyhooly’s 2-12. Heartiest congratulations to Harbour Rovers.
Our minor hurlers had two convincing league wins last week. On Monday evening they defeated St.Marks 3-15 to 1-6. Then, on Thursday evening they played host to Kilworth and won 6-17 to 2-14, thus qualifying for the league semi-final. We look forward to further success for these boys.
At last Monday’s weekly Club meeting a vote of sympathy was passed to the wife, son and relatives of the late Paddy Creed, Gurrane, on their recent bereavement. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam.
