Kilmeen & Kilbree GAA Club notes

Kilbree U13's who played with Carbery team in inter-divisional blitz in Charleville

Busy times for Kilmeen & Kilbree U16’s

The U16’s have had a busy few weeks. They played Croke Rovers in Castlemagner on October 25th, in the U16 county football quarter final. Kilmeen dominated for most of this game. Early points by Kieran O’Sullivan, Cian Murphy and Conor Hurley settled the Kilmeen lads. They lead by 0-8 to 0-4 at half time. A goal by Cian Murphy early in the second half set Kilmeen up for a spell of domination. Croke Rovers scored a goal against the run of play, later in the second half. The full time score was Kilmeen 1-13 Croke Rovers 1-6.

This set up a county football semi-final against Kildorrery in Kilmurry on Sunday last. Kilmeen were the stronger side in the first half and lead by a point at half time. While Kilmeen started strongly in the second half, the opposition came back and won this fixture by three points. The final score was Kildorrery 2-10 Kilmeen 2-7.

The U16 hurlers lost the West Region hurling league final against Western Gaels in Kilmichael. However, having won the West region championship, this cohort of players now look forward to an U16 county hurling semi-final in the next week.

U13 Carbery Camogie

Well done to the Kilbree U13’s who represented their club and division on Sunday, in an inter-divisional camogie blitz in Charleville. Mary Murphy, Margaret Collins, Heather Brimble, Caoimhe Murphy, Maeve O’Neill and Kate O’Donovan played exceptionally well for Carbery. The teams taking part in this well organised blitz included Carbery, Avondhu, Carrigdhoun, Aghabullogue and Seandun. The Carbery squad defeated Carrigdhoun, lost to Muskerry and defeated Avondhu in the Shield final. It was a most enjoyable day for all of the girls involved. Thanks to Deirdre O’Leary for co-ordinating the Carbery U13 squad. Thanks to the Carbery mentors/coaches.

Congratulations to Kilbree’s Kate O’Donovan, Mary Murphy, Rachel Deasy and Caoimhe Murphy who recently won the U13 West Cork football title with Clonakilty. They have already won the U14 West Cork and County football titles, earlier in the season.

Congratulations to Kilbree’s Aife O’Neill, Mairead Crowley and Maeve O’Neill who won the U16 county football title with Doheny’s.

A number of Kilbree girls recently represented Carbery in an U13 inter-divisional football blitz, in Mallow. Maeve O’Neill, Rachel Deasy, Caoimhe Murphy and Mary Murphy were involved in Carbery teams playing other Cork divisions as well as teams from all over Munster. Thanks to Miriam Forbes and all the other coaches for their work over the summer months with these girls.
