Carraig Hurlers Garner another Two points Away from Home.  

East Cork Junior Hurling League Division 1 – Sat 16th June @ Lisgoold Carraig na bhFear 1-22 Lisgoold 0-18 In a fixture that has always had a bit of “bite” to it, Carraig na bhFear Junior Hurlers took the two points on offer against Lisgoold, in the East Cork Junior Hurling League, on Saturday last, June 16th. With a week to go to the first round of the hurling championship, the team was keen to put in a strong display and to keep building confidence and spirit within the camp. The story of the game could be summed up in one sentence, it was played on Carraig’s terms. There was a good pace and tempo to their play, with Martin Hickey, the Forde brothers and Aaron Dorgan strong in around the middle third. A dominant half forward line of John Forde, Timmy Geaney and Paul Murphy dominated possession on their own puck out and this lead to a plethora of scoring chances. Carraig lead by five points to four after 15 minutes, and they pushed the lead out further with a well taken goal by Brendan Murphy, profiting from strong interplay between Paul Murphy and Timmy Geaney. Half time score: Carraig 1-11, Lisgoold 0-08. The second half saw a reduction in tempo as Carraig always seemed to answer a Lisgoold score with one of their own, and thus making sure the win was never in threat. The full back line of Brian Hegarty, Stephen Casey and Daniel Coleman were very efficient and secure in possession which meant that Lisgoold could never create a goal chance that could ignite a...

Stirring Second Half sees Carraig Footballers win in Style

Carraig na bhFear 0-17 Cloyne 1-09. East Cork Junior “A” Football Championship Quarter Final. Sat 9th June – Lisgoold For those of us with a negative disposition or prone to casual cliches, they could have found much to support the view that this was the’ same old Carraig’ following the first half of this JAFC quarter final at Lisgoold on Saturday evening last. True the men in green and red had started brightly. Opening points from the boot of Paul O’Keefe (x2), Paul Murphy and Colm O’Reilly had moved them into a lead of four points to one. However, a crucial inability to engage in the physical battle in the middle third, gave Cloyne a foothold that propelled them into swift action. They rattled off 1-5 with the probings of Paudie O Sullivan to the fore. A solitary point in reply from James Forde gave them a tidy lead of 1-6 to five points at the short whistle. Carraig trundled off to the dressing room with questions wringing in their ears about their mental constitution for the battle. Do bhi udar imni ann I measc  phobail na Carraige. We are all prone to believing that half time orations inspire teams to greater things. There was no doubt that our lads were in a hole. “in umar na haimileise, ‘se an smaoineamh  a bhi ag fear amhain. And in these scenarios, it takes courage, self awareness of ones mistakes and key tactical interventions to stem the tide. When the vital corrections in terms of application and personnel were made, the team were transformed. Mar a deireann an seanfhocail    “Teann focal...

Carraig Show Character to Secure a Draw

East Cork Junior Hurling League Div 1 Wed 23rd May – Cobh Cobh 0-19 Carraig na bhFear 0-19   In the third round of fixtures for the East Cork Junior A Hurling League, Carraig na bhFear visited the seaport town of Cobh on a sunny Wednesday evening, May 23. In a game that was placed with a good tempo and with a little bit of bite from both sides, it took an equalizing ’65 free from John Forde to earn Carraig the draw. A fair result you might ask? Probably, as both sides had good periods of dominance without being able to pull away fully from their opponents. The first half was fast and open. Cobh started well and after 12 minutes took a lead of six points to two. The Carraig full back line was under a bit of pressure at this time, but gradually Paul Geaney started to nullify the dangerous Cobh number 14.  Increased possession won at midfield and in the half back lead to Carraig shooting some excellent points. John and James Forde, Timmy Geaney and Paul Murphy shot points from distance and with the onset of half time, Carraig went in ahead, leading by twelve points to eleven. Do thosaigh na fir on Charraig go maith sa dara leath. Do thiomain Timmy Geaney dha chuilin den scoth on taobh dheis den bpairc.  Do bhi Aaron Dorgan, Gary Geaney agus Michael Aherne i mbarr a reime sa line leath chulai agus da bhri sin, do bhi a lan seilbh ag Carraig. Ach do chiallamar tri seans lena cheile chun cul a fhail agus mar a...
