Cobh Pirates RFC Notes



IMG_9573Cobh Pirates had the usual full St. Stephen’s Day programme again this year which started off with a sponsored swim at Cuskinny by the u/17’s. Though the weather was mild it took brave souls to enter the sea in December. The Eddie Doyle 7’s Memorial Trophy was played for at one o’ clock with the usual fun, tumbles and showmanship. The trophy was won by Kelly’s Killers, captained by Jason Anglim. The Chairman’s team won the Golden Oldies match with the Man of the Match Award being won by Amsterdam-based Golden-locked(!) Eoin Wallace.

The J2 team also received a new set of jerseys from Beeline Products and Gerry Finn was at hand to present them to the J2 coach, Bill Dillane. The proceeds of the traditional St.Stephen’s Day collection were in aid of Cobh Hospital with Cobh Pirates matching the amount collected. After the formalities, Pirates from home and abroad renewed acquaintances and exchanged news and stories, and as the night got longer the stories got taller!!


We are also delighted to announce that post the MJL Div 1 game v Clanwilliam on Sunday, that Dave McAuliffe has taken over as Club Captain from Ruairi Geary as he departs for Canada. Dave will hold the position until the end of the season. We wish Dave all our support for the remainder of the league and domestic cup runs, in what will be a big drive for a top 4 All Ireland Cup spot over the next 7 weeks. Please support and congratulate Dave on his new role.
