Kilmeen & Kilbree GAA Club Notes

Ballygurteen Tractor Run

The proceeds from the annual Ballygurteen tractor run were presented in Joe McCarthy’s bar on Saturday night. The proceeds were split between Kilmeen & Kilbree underage club and CUH. Thanks to everyone involved in organising and running this most important fundraiser for our juvenile club.

U8 Football Blitz

The youngest footballers in our club took to the big stage in Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Saturday last, in a monster football blitz. This was a truly momentous occasion for our youngsters. They played Glanmire, Clondrohid and Sliabh Rua. They were also delighted to meet Cork footballer Mark Collins.

U14 Camogie

It was a week of mixed fortunes for the U14 camogie girls. They had already won the U14 West Cork title in September against Ballinascarthy. In county championship, they lost to Castlelyons in the first round. They defeated Inniscarra in round two and had to play Castlelyons again in round three. They impressed greatly against Castlelyons and progressed to the county quarter-final. They played Killeagh in Rossmore in this quarter-final and were victorious. The final score was Kilbree 4-3 Killeagh 1-2. This set up a county semi-final against Cobh on Sunday night. In terrible conditions Kilbree lead by a goal at half-time. However, Cobh were a stronger team in the second half and Kilbree were unlucky to lose by four points. The final score was Kilbree 1-6 Cobh 3-4. The majority of this panel are still U14 for next season and many of these girls now look forward to an U16 West Cork final against Barryroe in the coming week.
