All Systems Go…

Despite the inclement weather it’s all systems go as various club teamsget back into training for the coming season. It’s at this time of tyear thatthe real value of our All Weather facility for training can be reallyappreciated as it allows players to practise in some degree of comfort. Afterso much rain in recent weeks it is very difficult to get matches played as mostfields are still unplayable.

 Co. MFL

On Saturdy February 2nd we were fixed to play Brian Dillons at 2 oclock in our first gameof the season but due to a Fixtures rearrangement thisgame was cancelled. Other fixtures in this competition are

Sat 2 March v Crosshaven, home

Sat 16 March v Lisgoold, away

Sat 24 March v Shamrocks, away.


The East Cork final of Senior Scor took place  in Lisgoold on lastSunday night Feb 3rd. Interest in Scor has waned considerably in recent yearsbut nevertheless we had entries in three sections on the night, solo singing,novelty act and question time. Our Novelty act ‘No Burgers in Paris’ finished insecond place and will go through to the County Semi Final in Ballyhooley onSunday night week Feb 17th.


Training commenced last week  and weather permitting we may have agame on Sunday.

 Kildorrery ‘s Campaign Ends

Kildorrery bowed out of the All Ireland JHC at Leahy Park in Cashel onSunday week  last when they were beaten by Thomastown of Kilkenny.

 While it was disappointing the Kildorrery team and mentors canreflect on a superb year at Divisional, County and Provincial level. They canlook forward with confidence to playing hurling at Intermediate level in 2013.It’s great to see the interest being shown in the epic Junior Football AllIreland semi final between Kenmare Shamrocks of Kerry and Dublin’s Castleknock.Twice on successive weekends these sides have met in Mitchelstown Despite twoperiods of extra time no winner has emerged. This weekend both teams get toplay in Croke Park when the third game goes ahead at Headquarters on Saturdayevening..
