Camogie U10s & U8s – Cappamore Blitz

The U10 and U8 teams visited Cappamore for a Go Games Camogie blitz Saturday 26th May. As temperatures soared in record-breaking heat, the players served up some great hurling against teams from Cappamore, Tournafulla and Kilmallock. The players gave as good as they got in all games and enjoyed the day hugely. Outstanding performances from Grace Clohessy, who scored a goal from her own half, Lucy and Roisin D'Arcy, Clodagh Power and Bailey McNamara. Our U8s played Tournafulla and Cappamore and also played really well. The go games are proving a big hit with the girls who are developing their skills all the time - keep up the great work.

U10 Squad: Lucy D'Arcy, Roisin D'Arcy, Susan D'Arcy, Aoife Doyle, Bailey McNamara, Juliettte Pinson, Grace Clohessy, Sarah Sheahan, Kerrie Carey, Mia O'Halloran, Clodagh Power, Laura Burke, Francesca Kearns, Emma Rae, Fiona Gleeson.

Camogie U14 “A” League Semi-Final

Monaleen 0-2 Crecora 4-2

Monaleen’s great league campaign came to an end when we met Féile champions Crecora in Monaleen on Thurs 31st. Crecora got two early goals which had us on the backfoot and we were unable to close the gap. Luck was against us on the night as a great effort from Caoimhe Lyons hit the post and Claire Kelly shot narrowly wide from a tight angle – scores that would have gone in on another day and made a big difference to the game. In the second half we kept Crecora scoreless as everybody put in a tremendous effort and really lifted their game.  Well done girls on a great campaign winning all of their 9 matches to qualify for the A grade and being competitive against the best teams in the county.

U11 Football League. Our U11 footballers played their third league match in the U12B league last week against Kildimo. A good performance all round and only went down by a few scores to a good Kildimo team. Robbie Donnegan opened our scoring with a fine point from a tight angle. Our backs and midfield players well and worked hard with John Toland, John Maloney and Niall McGrath particularly effective. Darragh Killeen worked tirelessly end to end from midfield and was unluckly not to get a few scores. Mark Harty having played the first half full back, started the second at full forward and almost immediately scored a goal from short range andhad another only from a fine save from the goalie. Mark Griffen had another fine performance in goal pulling off some fine saves. Others to play well were Jason Alyward, Micheal O'Hanrahan, James Flannery and Alan Crehan. Overall a good performance in what is a tough league for the team many of whom are still only 10.
