Cobh Gaa Notes: 8th August



Family Fun Day:

The club had its Family Fun Day on Saturday 31st July, and, with the weather again being kind to us a great day was had by the large crowd in attendance. With musical entertainment in the marquee, a pig-roast to feed the masses, bouncy castles, gladiator jousting, penalty shoot-outs, hurling long pucks and novelty races on the pitch, there was plenty to do for everyone. The fun went on late into the evening and the pitch was back in playing order by midday on Sunday. Well done to the organising committee under the watchful eye of Vincent O’Rourke for catering for the needs of the 380 people who came along to enjoy the fun of the day. A big thank you also to the many members of the minor team who helped out as stewards ensuring everything ran smoothly, to Fidelma Histon for providing the bouncy castles, Declan Moynihan from Ryngs for providing the table covers, and to everyone else who helped to make the day such a great success.

Results: U12HL: Cobh 7-14 Lisgoold 1-07. A rare home game played on a beautifully prepared surface returned a comprehensive victory from a below par Lisgoold outfit. The opening exchanges were close and hard fought with the score level 10 minutes to half time. Cobh went in 5 points to the good after thirty minutes. The wind was aiding our charges in the second half. The resumption of play saw a skilful display with the full panel of 18 seeing game time, which helped record a big win to the delight of the vocal home following. This victory makes it 4 out of 5 in the league. Well done lads, keep up the hard work on the training field and the results will follow.
