Cork Intermediate Ladies Football Championship Final

Preparations begin in earnest now that our Intermediate panel have secured their place in the County Final against Naomh Aban. Details for the final are not finalised yet but everyone is encouraged to support the girls and mentors in any way possible. They certainly deserve this having put in fantastic effort in training and matches throughout the season.


Junior Camogie

The Junior camogie championship, which was to start Aug 7th, didn’t take place until last Thursday night when we played Ballinora. Ballinora, who only had 12 players on the night, gave us the game and so instead we played it as a challenge match. We gave them 3 players to make it a 15-a-side game. While Rovers started slowly, we began to dominate the game and went into half time with a 1-11 to 0-1 scoreline. In the second half, we took over the game completely and finished on a score of 5-14 to 1-1. While the game was one-sided, it was a good workout and is further preparation for bigger challenges in the championship ahead. On Tues 16th, we play Cobh in Cobh for our second game and Charleville at home on Sun 21st. Best wishes to Grace and Eleanor with the Cork footballers on Saturday. Congrats to Jennifer Cahill and best wishes to the Cork u16 team for the All Ireland.


Minor Ladies Football

Monday, August 15th, East Cork Minor League, Bride Rovers 7-15              Mayfield 1-1

The greater experience of the Rovers minor team told as we ran out winners over Mayfield in the first round of the Minor league. We are encountering new opposition at all grades more and more which is great to see.



U15 Camogie

Bride Rovers U15 Camogie panel were defeated in Dungourney on Tuesday, August 9th in their first U15 East Cork Camogie league match. Let’s hope for a better result in their next fixture.



U13 Camogie

Saturday, August 13th Bride Rovers 1-3                 Dungourney 2-1

Bride Rovers U13 girls were defeated by the narrowest of margins in their second East Cork U13 league game on Saturday, August 13th. While we are unfortunately still without a win in the competition, our panel of players are certainly very competitive and our defeats have been by the smallest of margins. Hopefully, we can sign off on the last round game with a win in this competition which provides much needed match-time during the summer months.


Match Panel : Sarah O Flynn, Madison Parle, Maria O’Sullivan, Aisling Finnegan, Niamh Murphy, Emma Roche, Grainne Noonan, Grace Culloty (1-0), Laura Quirke, Michelle Lane, Emma Hazelwood, Taylor Parle, Emma Barry (0-2), Arianne O Flynn (0-1).

Trish O’ Sullivan wears the Cork jersey

Congratulations to Trish O’ Sullivan on making the Cork U15 Camogie Development squad.  She has undergone eight weeks of intense training with the squad and competed in two Munster blitzes.  Trish lined out at full back for the team and did both herself and the club proud as they remained undefeated over the two blitzes.  Limerick, Clare, Kerry, Dublin were among the teams they defeated.  Well done again Trish and we look forward to many more years of seeing you wear the Cork jersey.
