Bride Rovers GAA Club notes & news round-up for the week.

WIN FOR U-21’s.

Our u21 Hurling team are participating in the C championship this year and the competition kicked off on last Friday night under the floodlights at Pairc An t-Athair Peadar O Laoighaire, Castlelyons. The competition is played on a round robin basis with Sars ‘B’, Lisgoold and ourselves participating. Our opponents on Friday night were Sars B. It is a great advantage to be able to play games like this at 8 o clock at this time of year. With players back at Second and third Level Schools it was always a problem in the past trying to get a team out for 6 o clock. Well done to the Castlelyons club for providing top class facilities for the game.

The match itself was even enough and we were slow getting in to the pace of the game. The Sars forward line were threatening all through but after the first quarter our defence got their measure. We led at half time but Sars came strongly into the game after the resumption. As the game wore on we added some good scores to finish worthy winners.

Panel:   Frank Hogan, Barry Collins, Fergus Collins, William O Leary, Stephen Boyce, Ryan O’Connor, Jason Pratt, Liam O’Leary, Eoin Murphy, Stephen O’Leary, Daniel Dooley, Jason Mannix, Enda Collins, Daniel Lane, Gerard Healy, Maurice Dooley and Kieran Cahill.

Sars play Lisgoold in the next fixture and we are due to play Lisgoold then with the top two teams meeting in the final. 


We are now in the League Final. Having completed our programme of 8 games we top the table with 13 points. Following us closely are Cloyne with 12 points after 7 games and St. Itas with 11 points from 7 games. If Cloyne beat or draw with St.Itas in their final game they play us in the Final but if St. Itas win that game they play us in the Final.

 The panel of players are urged to give a commitment to training over the coming weeks to ensure that we are in good shape for the Final. No date has yet been fixed for the Final.

 Our results to date in the JHL Div 2 are

Bride Rovers 5 14   Sarsfields  0  10

Bride Rovers 2  16  Youghal 3 11

Bride Rovers 1  13  Killeagh 1  10

Cork face Monaghan in Croke Park on next Sunday in the 2011 All Ireland Senior Ladies Football Final. Best wishes to Grace Kearney and Eleanor  Ahern who play with Cork. At Nenagh last Saturday Kathleen Kearney managed the Cork Senior B team to All Ireland Success. Well done to Kathleen and our two players involved, Eleanor Ahern and Jennifer Barry. Congrats also to the Junior Camogie team who defeated Castlelyons in the County Semi final at Ballynoe. They will face Ballinascarthy in the County Final.


The Scrap metal collection over the last six weeks has been a great success. We are still taking all kinds of metal from clothes hangers to combine harvesters. If you can bring the scrap to our collection points all the better but if you need to have it be collected this can be arranged. Ring Terry 087 930000 or James at  086 8350741. People have asked if we take ‘small’ scrap like drink and food cans … once it is metal we’ll be glad of it!


The next Club Executive Meting is on next Monday night September 26th at 9pm in the Clubroom.

The Bride Rovers GAA Club Main Sponsor is The Rathcormac Inn/Conversation Piece.
