Cork Intermediate Ladies Football Championship Final

The County Final against Naomh Aban is now scheduled for Sunday, August 28th at 7pm. Unfortunately, a venue has not been announced at time of writing.

Please support the panel of players and mentors as they strive to bring great honour to our club.

The Avondhu are very kindly including a feature on Bride Rovers Ladies Football and Camogie Club which appears elsewhere in this week’s issue, as part of the build up to the final, and many thanks to them for that.

U12 Ladies Football

Thursday, August 18th

Eire Og 3-11       Bride Rovers 5-5


Our U12 girls played out a very entertaining draw with Eire Og at Ovens on Thursday, August 18th. Games between these sides are normally very open and high scoring and this was no exception. We had a good turnout for this match as players return from holidays and it was a good prep game for County Championship and East Cork Championship games ahead.
