Cobh GAA Notes 3rd Oct



Minors Win East Cork Football Championship: Cobh 1-17 St. Catherine’s 0-05. The Cobh minor footballers went some way to making up for the disappointment of losing the hurling final by annexing the ‘B’ football championship with a facile win over St. Catherine’s at Lisgoold on Saturday last. Learning from the hurling final, the Cobh team were very efficient in their play, never relented with the pressure they applied to their opponents and took nothing for granted this time around. Cobh were much the stronger outfit and with youngsters John Flanagan, Kieran Histon and Luke Curran giving an exhibition, aided by the slightly ‘older’ Jamie Moynihan, Cian Spriggs and Mark Foley, they took control of the game early on and powered home to victory in the second half. Well done to the players and management on this fine win and best of luck in the County Championship.

U9's Trip ToT ipp

U9’s & U10’s take a ‘Trip to Tipp’. On Saturday 2nd October a busload of our U9 and U10 hurlers and their coaches headed for Thurles to play local club Dúrlas Óg. The lads played three matches against the Tipp boys and, although the sides were evenly matched, Cobh did manage to come out on top in all of the games when the final whistle was blown. Great fun was had on the bus on the way up and down and the stop off for lunch on the way home at the Corbett Court capped a great day for this very good bunch of young hurlers who have had a busy year on the hurling fields of Cork (and beyond). Well done and a big thank you to John Kidney for organising the trip, to the coaches who travelled with the teams and indeed to the parents and families of the boys who travelled to support their young rebels on their adventure over the county bounds. Most of all, well done to all the players who behaved themselves impeccably and continue to be a credit to their families and their club.
