THe boys performed really well and received a great reception from the big crowd of Cork supporters at the game.

Results: U12FL: On Wed 24th, our u12 footballers kicked off their East Cork league campaign away to Killeagh. This fixture was re-scheduled from the previous Monday due to a bereavement in the Killeagh club. The Killeagh team started the more aggressively which saw them going into the half time break leading by four points. The second half saw our guys approach the game differently, matching the opponents pound for pound, and playing a nice brand of football. Cobh whittled down the lead and hit the front by a point approaching the end but Killeagh goaled just before the end to win the day on a scoreline of 3-05 to 3-02.  In the Sciath na Scoil hurling competition, Scoil Iosaef Naofa recorded a fine victory on Monday afternoon against St. Anthony’s of Ballinlough on a score of 4-02 to 3-02. Well done to all involved.
