Gleoise na Carraige – Dec 2019

Muintir Carraig na bhFear…ta se nios cuine na mar a bhi, ach uaireanta, caithfidh tu sos a thogail. Ce go bhfuil ar gcroi bhriste tar eis on Cluiche Cheannais Contae in aghaidh Fanaithe na Ruisealaigh, ta neart agus dianseasmhachta i gCarraig na bhFear agus beidh La eile ag an bPaorach.  Ta gach duine an bhroduil as an bhFoireann agus an lucht bainistiocht, do bhi turas an shuimiuil againn agus taimid ag feachaint chun tosaigh sa bhliain seo chugainn. 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...

Here is a quick update as to what has been happening in the our club over the last four weeks: Juvenile Club: Our Juvenile Club held its monthly meeting on February 12th. The meeting was well attended and involved a lot of discussion around grading of our juvenile teams.  A central message to come from the meeting is that every team is important, every player is important and that it is through constant dialogue and a willingness to work together which underpins the club ethos for 2019. Our playing numbers are not huge and therefore, our club hopes that every member, parent and supporter will encourage each juvenile player and team to take part and be part of the club, in whatever form...

Division 3 hurling League Final Win for Carraig na bhFear

East Cork JHL Div 3 Final Sun 11th Nov – Dungourney Killeagh 1-10 Carraig Na bhFear 2-11 Match Report courtesy of Declan Barron, East Cork Journal The Owenacurra Cup for the East Cork division 3 hurling league winners went to Carraig Na bhFear who just got the better of Killeagh in a very entertaining final played at the Dungourney venue last Sunday afternoon. At half time Killeagh led by a point having played with the breeze, but the two goals from Brian Sheehan and Dee O’Driscoll kept Carraig Na bhFear very much in touch as they trailed by 0-7 to 2-0 with Padraic Carroll, Kevin Fennelly, Gavin Coleman and Keane Budds the Killeagh scorers. Playing with the breeze in the second half Carraig Na bhFear drew level with a point from David Sweeney and the same player put them ahead. Further points from Ger Spillane and Brian Sheehan moved them three clear but Keane Budds and Padraic Carroll kept Killeagh in touch with good points from play. The action was moving from end the end with Carraig Na bhFear dominating possession and points from Spillane and two from Sheehan had them four points clear going into the closing stages. Killeagh were not for giving up and with Gerry Dulea and Gavin Coleman driving them forward, they got a lifeline when sub Paud Leahy banged in a goal and it was game on again. Pauric Carroll bagged another point for Killeagh, but it was Carraig Na bhFear that finished strongly with points from Dave Sweeney and two from Con Burns securing victory after a very entertaining contest well refereed by...
