Bride Rovers Ladies Football & Camogie Club notes

U12 Ladies Football
We travelled to Na Piarsaigh on Monday evening, conditions were good, we won the toss and played against the wind. Na Piarsaigh were first to score but it wasn’t long before we responded. By half time it was 3 pts each. A thrilling second half was played with Na Piarsaigh fighting hard to score but our very strong back line prevented them every time. Well done to all the girls on the panel. Final score Bride Rovers 1-9 Na Piarsaigh 0-3.
Scores, Sarah Murphy 0-1, Ciara O’ Flynn 0-1, Fiona Barry 0-1 , Katie Quirke 1-4 , Rachael O’ Flynn 0-2.

U12 Football Final to be played weekend of 22nd to 24th of June, more details later.

U10 Ladies Football
We played 4 games in the family fun day blitz last Sunday winning 2 and losing 2. Every girl got lots of playing time and I think I can speak for everyone who attended and say it was a great success. We began the day playing our near neighbours Watergrasshill and emerged winners. Megan and Caoimhe Kielty made some great passes in this game with the following scorers Ciara 1-1, Shauna 1-0, Sophie 1-1 and Chloe 0-1 while Watergrasshill scored 2-2 throughout the game.
We then went on to play Mitchelstown. In this game both teams had a number of chances but scores were very hard to come by. Abbey Keating, Rebecca Hill and Rebecca Howe showed how their training and match experience has helped as they were chasing and tackling at every chance. Caoimhe O’Sullivan had to be at her best at the back as they attacked on a number of occasions. Sophie was our only scorer with a point while Mitchelstown scored 1-0 In our next game we played Erins Own and considering we had no break the girls played well. Ella showed just how talented and capable she is in goal bringing off a number of point blank saves. Fleur got on the score sheet scoring 1-0 and Chloe scored 0-4 but Erins Own were the stronger team scoring 6-3.
Our last game was against Glanworth this was a game where Aoife, Naoise and Alice played outstanding in this game as all girls were tired after all their games. Caoimhe Hazelwood showed how well she can play pushing forward scoring 3-1 Chloe also on target scoring 1-0 and Ciara reliably scoring 1-0. We won the last game as Glanworth scored 4-1 Panel for the day: Aoife Lomasney, Caoimhe Kielty, Megan Buckley, Rebecca Hill, Rebecca Howe, Shauna Hayes, Naoise McCarthy, Caoimhe Hazelwood, Abbey Keating, Ella Quinlan, Alice Murray, Chloe Murphy, Caoimhe O’Sullivan, Fleur O’Donovan, Sophie Dorgan, Ciara O’Flynn.


A word of thanks to everyone who helped out in any way to make our fundraiser such a success on Sunday last. It was our first joint adventure of both the Ladies and Juvenile clubs and definitely something that will be continued in the future. Weeks of planning and hard work went into the venture but on hearing the feedback from the visiting clubs on Sunday evening it made it all worthwhile. Lots of people put a lot of work into the day but it still could not have been held without the help of everyone that was present on the day. The generosity of people was well and truly evident with the amount of baking, books and bags that arrived on Sunday morning .On behalf of both clubs thanks to everyone that donated. Thanks to everyone that helped out in any way on the day, people that were down to do an hour or two ended up staying for the day it was so busy. On Thursday last one would have said that it would never go ahead the weather was so bad but thankfully the Gods were looking down on us (or else Valerie’s infant of Prague worked) and on Sunday morning the sun was shining brightly.
The day’s proceedings began with our MC for the day Alan Fitzgerald getting all the teams to parade behind the piper some of the little ones in their element thinking they were parading in Croke Park. The blitzes then got underway with a well planned programme organised by our juvenile chairman Pat Walsh .Fun was the order of the day with all players getting medals at the end .A sincere thanks to our u16 boys and girls who did an excellent job refereeing for the day. If you weren’t on the field of play one had plenty other activities to take part in .The penalty shoot-out went to a tie breaker with Christopher Coleman winning out in the play off. The obstacle course tested your speed and Ben Hogan was fastest on the day. No-one guessed the correct amount of blocks in the trailer and when drawn Barry Hazelwood was the lucky winner. Again no-one had the correct amount for the jar and Jerome O Driscoll was the lucky person to be drawn out. Spot the Splat cards were on sale for the last few weeks and disaster nearly struck when our sheep decided to do his business on the way to the pitch, hence poor Martin had a long wait before he obliged again .Square 112 was the eventual landing spot with Elaine Dee the lucky owner of that square. Johnny Shanahan’s ferrets proved a real attraction for young and old and our thanks to Johnny for giving up his time to be with us on Sunday. At 12.30 we had a grand entrance by the one and only Madam Rosie-Lee who was on hand to tell the young folks fortune. And for the hungry and thirsty our tea stall and barbecue were in full demand throughout the day with a constant flow of people all day. Such was the demand that supplies ran out on several occasions. A nasty shower at 3 O’ clock put a quick end to proceedings and unfortunately some of our young contestants on the pitch didn’t get a chance to enjoy the activities with a quick exit by a lot of people. Our car park was a hive of activity and thanks to all the men who spent hours on the road and field without them it would have been mayhem…
Our thanks to all our sponsors who helped us on the day. Tvm ,Richard Mulcahy, Declan O Sullivan butchers ,Martin O Connor, Sean O Brien, Margo & Denis Fitzgerald, Colm & Orla Barry and thanks to Paddy Hynes who kindly took all the rubbish and Ed Quinn who was on hand for first aid all day.

Our U8 girls team were kitted out in a beautiful set of Jerseys on Sunday thanks to Liam & Ann-Marie Barry of Fermoy Print & Design for the generous sponsorship.
