Ladies Football & Camogie Club Notes

November 8, 2018

The AGM was held on Friday night last in the clubrooms with an attendance of thirty three people. The minutes of last years agm were read first and then the outgoing secretary Catherine Mc Hugh gave a detailed report of the club activities for the year. It was a busy year for the club with teams in all ages both football &camogie from u8 to junior.

Our camogie teams didn’t have the best of seasons with some of the underage teams finding themselves in too high grades.
Our u15 team reached the East Cork final but were defeated by a very strong Killeagh side. 
Our junior team struggled for numbers right throughout the year but finished very promising against Castleyons in the plate competition loosing by three points with a very young team so hopefully next year will see an increase in numbers .In football the highlight of the year was our Junior team winning the County B grade final after a replay against St Vals in Carrigtwohill on the 16th of October.
The following week our u10 team captured the East Cork final against near neighbours Lisgoold and two weeks later the U14 won the East Cork league final against Carrigtwohill having lost the championship by a point two weeks earlier. All of our other teams while unfortunately had no silverware they all accounted for themselves both at county and East Cork during the year. Catherine then congratulated all the players that had represented their club on various county teams during the year.
Three girls Aine Cashman Claire Murphy and Trish O Sullivan represented their clubs and schools on the primary games  teams .Trish was a member of the Cork Colleges  camogie development squad and Claire the Cork football u13 development squad .Jennifer Cahill was  a member of the Cork Colleges camogie team and was also a member of the Cork u14 football  team who won  the All-Ireland blitz, and the Munster and All-Ireland championship, Jennifer Barry was a member of the Cork u16 football team who won Munster  championship honours and Grace Kearney and Eleanor Ahern were members of the Cork Senior B Team that won the All-Ireland  championship all four girls will collect their medals at a function to be held in Rochestown Park on Nov 27th.Catherine then thanked all our sponsors for their generosity during the year especially our junior sponsors O Coileans .She finished by thanking everyone that helped out in any way with the running of the club during the year.
Valerie had a detailed financial report for everyone and showing that while the club would be in a reasonably healthy state it also showed that every year the club is getting more expensive to run.
Joint chairpersons Ann Forde and Sinead O Driscoill thanked the Bride rover’s senior and juvenile club for their help during the year and to ground officer John Murphy for all his help. They thanked all the trainers of the various teams and also all who helped with the various fundraisers during the year.They also thanked the local paper The Avondhu for there continous coverage and the expression magazine Billy Finnegan chairman of the junevile club presided over the election of officers.
