  Muintir Carraig na bhFear, ta an Lockdown chriochnaithe agus ta suil again go bhfuil daoine ag tnuth le chursai na Nollag agus an gnath shaol ag dul thar nais, diaidh ar ndiaidh. Caithfear a admhail ce go deacair agus chrua do bhi an bhliain seo.  Ni ligfear lamh a chasadh, seasamh nios giorra na dha meadair, do bhi iomai daoine in umar na haimileise.

We hope you all enjoy the last instalment of Gleoise na Carraige 2020. It has been a really tough year for both young and old. We have had to learn new skills, new ways of socializing, whilst also trying to keep a level of normality going. The club season came to an end in early October with most championship games played to completion. Here is an account of some those games, where glory and victory walked hand in hand with disappointment and regret.   Adult Club Report Junior C Hurlers Dreams Shattered in Final East Cork Junior C Hurling Final 2020 Castlemartyr 1-19 Carraig na bhFear 1-05 Do yourself justice. A common enough phrase in every day lexicon, but how do we attribute this phrase to playing sport? Is justice the feeling that you have given your all and have no regrets? Or is it playing without fear? Is it truth? Something to ponder, but the phrase appeared appropriate as our Junior C Hurlers trudged off the green sod of Killeagh Gaa Grounds, beaten and mute with disappointment. We...

East Cork Junior A Hurling Championship 2020 Round Robin Phase August 9th Carraig na bhFear 1-21 Fr O’ Neills 0-13 August 21st Carraig na bhFear 3-17 Watergrasshill 1-17   The East Cork Junior Championship began in earnest on the August Bank Holiday weekend, a later than usual starting date, owed to the different times we live in. Our Junior Hurlers had a bye that weekend, but they began their journey for 2020 against regular opponents Fr O’Neills on a sunny Sunday afternoon at Castlelyons GAA Grounds.  Looking at the Carraig team sheet revealed the usual suspects in key positions around the field. Casey at 1, no longer the apprentice, whose fine form from 2019 continued apace. Driscoll at 3, Geaney at 6, the wily Dorgan at 9, playing his best hurling at the prime of his career, Sheehan the braveheart at 11 and Murphy the enigma at 14 all lined out. J Ahern and B Sheehan were two starters who had deserved their place due...

To all our readers and club members, the temperatures have dropped, the evenings are darker and we are approaching that magical time of the year where we take stock, look back and dream of what is to come. This is the 7th edition of our club newsletter and since we last talked, we had the little matter of the Cork County Hurling Final 2019 to deal with. Unfortunately, we were not good enough on the day, beaten by a better and more ruthless team and we wish Russell Rovers all the best in the Munster Championship and in the Intermediate Grade next year. But even though our heads were bowed for a brief period, we can reflect back on a year that saw some great performances from our local heroes, who went further than any other Carraig Junior A Hurling team did before. A lot has been learnt, new memories were made, some regrets may linger, but in truth, our club is in a better position for the whole experience. There is no doubt that the appetite has been whetted for 2020, in both the Adult and Juvenile Club. The dream...
