Cork Football Development Squads Success

On the 7th July, the Rebel Óg football development squads competed in Munster Competitions at u14, u15 and u16 lage grades. The Cork Football teams captured the u15 and u16 tournaments while the u14s competition is entering its second phase on the 28th July with 2 out of the 4 Cork sides in contention for victory.

Rebel Og U16 Development Squads

Cork Football Squads win again

 

The U16 “White” squad won their tournament in Limerick beating Limerick, Kerry and Tipperary. The manner of victory was particularly pleasing given the very attractive style of free flowing football on display. Cork were the only county to have entered 2 panels for this competition. The “Red” squad also produced excellent football on the day but came up short against Tipperary in their first game before beating Clare and Waterford to reach the Plate final.

They were second best to Kerry in this final but the management team were very happy with how the group performed. This was the first time that Cork have won this tournament in 6 years and bodes well for this crop heading in to U17 next year where they will be reunited with Bobbie O Dwyer, now in charge of theUu17s but who also managed this group at U15 level in 2017. U16 Squads here

Rebel Og U15 Development Squads

Cork Football Squads win againThe U15 West squad won the Humphrey Kelleher Tournament beating Limerick and South Kerry before brushing aside the challenge of North Kerry in the final. The Cork East squad beat Clare before losing to North Kerry by 1 point after extra time in a thrilling semi final. The two Cork panels were split geographically with the West consisting of players from Carbery, Beara, Carrigdhoun & Muskerry. The East squad comprised of players from Avondhu, Duhallow, Imokilly & Seandun. The East squad can feel somewhat aggrieved not to have made it to the final given the amount of unconverted chances they had in the North Kerry game but overall, the management teams in both squads know they have a competitive group of boys and have quality players at their disposal based on performances on the day. They will be in action again on the 28th July as a qualifier blitz for the Adam Mangan Tournament in Offaly so their focus has already moved to that.

Rebel Og U14 Development Squads

The U14 Jim Power tournament in Waterford is now a 2 day event. Cork North and Cork City East are going forward to the Cup Competition having qualified from their groups while the West and Mid West will compete in the Plate competition having lost out on goal difference to qualify. These finals will be on the 28th July. Cork GAA Games Manager, Kevin O Callaghan says “Cork Football is the real winner at this age group with 120 players in the system being exposed to competitive representative football. This provides a huge base of players being developed throughout the year and will ensure players are being afforded every opportunity to progress.” U14 Squads here

O Callaghan notes “While these are development tournaments only, capturing 2 of the 3 cups on offer (and the potential to win the third) is a reflection of the hard work being put in to the football squads at present. The mentors involved are putting in massive effort to aid the players development and deserve great credit here. Rebel Óg and Rebel Óg Coaching are putting a huge amount of effort in to the development squads programme and James McCarthy GDA heads up this football effort. The cooperation between minor management and underage squads beneath them is better than ever before, the conditioning of the underage players is more advanced than any year prior to 2018.”

There are still deficits in the system but perhaps the future of Cork Football is not as bleak as some people might believe this week. Well done to all the players, their clubs and mentors involved with these groups, nice to get some recognition for the hard work and commitment to the cause.

Monster Blitzes 2018

Image result for monster blitzRebel Óg Coaching Monster Blitz Program for 2018.

Each club is invited to attend blitzes at their respective age group. Each team has the option of several blitzes in each code and we will be hosting almost 300 blitzes in venues all over the county between March and October. Monster Blitzes 2018 can have anything from 100 to 400 children participating on a weekly basis, with up to 300 teams representing clubs every week. There will be 6/7 venues hosting a blitz every week. Up to 10,000 children participate in the Blitzes on a monthly basis. Dates are similar to previous years, with one significant change to the programme.

Last season, clubs moved into a League structure for the year. Following consultation with clubs, this program seemed to be of greater benefit and enjoyment to the mentors, parents and participating children. With this in mind, the age groupings are as follows for U9 (only boys born in 2009 are eligible for this league, U8’s are not allowed as they will have blitzes the same days) and U10 teams in 2018.  U8’s and U7’s will remain at the Monster Blitz stage.

To Register for Monster blitz – CLICK HERE

If you have any queries about the league, we suggest you talk to the outgoing u10 mentor in the club and he will fill you in on any information required before the regional meetings in March. Last thing to note, U8, U9 and U10 matches are going to be scheduled for Saturday mornings, Monster Blitz at 10.15, U9 at 11am and U10 at 12.15pm, so pitches will be available at different times for games.

Preview: Electric Ireland MHC Final – Cork v Galway


Sunday September 3

Electric Ireland Minor Hurling Final

Cork v Galway, Croke Park, 1.15pm, TG4

Significant hope has been attached to this current Cork crop throughout the year.

Two epic matches against reigning All Ireland champions Tipperary underlined the class and character that exists Leeside.

Cork are developing talented teams in the underage ranks with the future appearing bright.

Jeffrey Lynskey’s Galway finished strongly to defeat Kilkenny at the penultimate stage for a noteworthy win.

Ultimately it means that this Sunday’s decider promises to be an extremely interesting encounter.

Dublin were rugged during a tight Semi-Final tussle against Cork as Brian Turnbull registered 13 points.

Midfielder Daire Connery is another highly promising Cork youngster and Galway will need to restrict his influence.

Brian Roche and Connery have forged a solid midfield partnership for an in form Cork outfit, but Galway have proven to be resilient so far.

Galway’s powerful full forward line includes Sean Bleahane, Conor Molloy, and Jack Canning, who combined to score 1-8 in the Kilkenny success.

Donal Mannion and Enda Fahy made important impacts from the bench in that game too as Galway advanced to the decider.

How Cork cope with Galway’s attacking unit will be another key factor in this tie.

Two innovative managers, Denis Ring and Lynskey, are keen to produce talented hurlers and they are carrying that task out impressively.

Since 1992 Galway have gleaned nine All Ireland minor titles confirming the diligent work that is being carried out in the underage ranks.

Cork’s last minor success occurred in 2001, but their recent All Ireland Under 17 triumph offers serious encouragement.

Having defeated Waterford, Tipperary, and Clare in Munster, Cork eventually overcame Dublin’s spirited challenge.

Galway were efficient when outfoxing Clare and Kilkenny, but they will be fully aware of Cork’s pedigree and potential.

‘All the people doing savage work in the clubs deserve Cork underage teams to be competing for trophies’

GIVEN it’s his fourth year involved, selector Liam Martin would be forgiven for feeling pretty satisfied heading into this Sunday’s All-Ireland final.

Of course they want to win and complete the perfect season, but seeing as Cork haven’t even reached the minor decider since 2007, the campaign has already been a success. Denis Ring and his selectors have given it everything to restore Cork’s fortunes at minor. All the credit should be shared according to the northsider.

“The county board, Rebel Óg, particularly, and all the people who are doing savage work in clubs everywhere deserve this. The minor team is only the end of a player’s underage career.

“It’s satisfying to be in the All-Ireland final because we felt for the last number of years we had Cork minor teams capable of competing with anyone but we needed a touch of luck to get there.”

That was certainly the case in the drawn Munster semi in Thurles. Fellow Glen club man Robert Downey saved Cork at the end of normal time and then Na Piarsaigh’s Evan Sheehan goaled a free at the death in extra time against Tipp.

“Munster semi-finals have been a minefield. There are ones we’ll regret for the rest of our lives that we should have won. We got the rub of the green but then I didn’t think we deserved to lose. That night in Thurles spoke volumes about the character of these lads.”

That set up a replay at Páirc Uí Rinn and a Munster final against Clare, where this young Cork team ripped it up. Ger Collins, Sean O’Leary Hayes, Brian Turnbull, Evan Sheehan and Daire Connery among the many stars. Martin acknowledges how much they fed off the hurling buzz in Leeside this summer.

“There’s been a huge feelgood factor all the way through to the senior team and that gave a boost of confidence for us too. We can all look forward to the future again as Cork hurling people, but that took a long process to get there.”

He explains that it’s especially enjoyable to be involved with this minor crop given their eagerness to learn and develop.

“They’re full of ability, character, commitment… the characteristics of any winning team basically.”

Everywhere you go in Cork, from Blackpool to Bandon and beyond, kids are out in force with hurleys again. Martin must take particular pride in seeing city hurlers, from Piarsaigh, Douglas and Glen, backboning this minor team.

“Personally I don’t care where they come from as long as they’re good enough.

“That’s where the Development Squads system have paid off. Would have got a corner-back from Dromtarriffe otherwise in Conor O’Callaghan? He’s been excellent.

Cork's Conor O'Callaghan and Eoghan O'Neill of Dublin. Picture: INPHO/Lorraine O'Sullivan

“Of course you need the city to be thriving for Cork hurling to be successful – but it’s a big county and the gospel has spread all over Cork at this stage.

“Some of the schools have pushed on, Christians, Colman’s, Midleton CBS, the Mon AG, and that’s not undercutting what’s going on at B level. All that will come to the fore in the next couple of years and that’s only mirroring what’s going on in the clubs, participation rates – which the Cork seniors’ success will build further – are up.”

He makes the point that once the various sectors are co-ordinated, good hurlers will come through.

“The good fella at 14, 15 isn’t going to necessarily be the lad who shines at minor level. We do see late developers and quite a few of this group were in the B squad at U14 like Liam O’Shea, Brian Turnbull, Ger Mellerick. They’ve pushed on in the last few years.”

Can they seal the deal this Sunday, especially after a patchy enough showing in the semi against Dublin?

“Galway have won five minor All-Irelands and been beaten in four finals since we’ve won it in 2001. It’ll be tough. Simple as that.

“It’s vital to play the game not the occasion. We’ve preached that all year. There’s a lot of razzmatazz surrounding it and obviously Galway will have a big support as they’re in both finals. All our focus has been on our own performance though.”

Hopefully that will be enough.

All-Ireland success for Cork U17s

Congratulations to the Cork U17 team who defeated Dublin by two points today in the All-Ireland U17 hurling final at Croke Park.



CORK 1-19 DUBLIN 1-17

By Jackie Cahill at Croke Park

CORK were crowned inaugural All-Ireland U17 hurling champions at Croke Park this afternoon

The Rebels held out for a two-point victory against a Dublin side reduced to 14 players in the second half, when midfielder Tom Aherne was dismissed in the 42nd minute for a second bookable offence. Fintan Clandillon’s Sky Blues worked incredibly hard and gave it everything but Cork, with a healthy sprinkling of minor stars who’ll be back at Croke Park next Sunday for an All-Ireland semi-final, managed to keep them at arm’s length. Dublin will rue Aherne’s red card, while goalkeeper Eddie Gibbons, who netted a first half penalty, sent another one hurtling over the crossbar in the 37th minute.

When Aherne was sent off, Dublin were two points down, before John Considine’s Cork stretched the gap to three points. On four more occasions before the finish, Cork led by three and while Dublin did get within one, with eight minutes left, they could never draw level. At half-time, Cork held a slender one-point lead, ahead by 1-9 to 1-8.

Dublin opened better and stormed into an early 0-4 to 0-1 lead, Tom Aherne, Billy Ryan, Liam Murphy (free) and Kevin Kirwan all on target in an unanswered spell, after Blake Murphy had put Cork ahead with a superb opening score. But Cork worked their way back to level at 0-5 each by the 14th minute, with minor panellists Daire Connery, Colin O’Brien (scorer of 1-10 in the U17 semi-final victory over Galway) and Declan Hanlon leading the charge. Dublin struck for goal in the 20th minute, as Gibbons slammed home a superb penalty after Kirwan was fouled. That score put Dublin 1-6 to 0-6 clear and the lead moved out to four points when captain Mark Grogan landed a score.

But Cork hit 1-3 without reply between the 24th and 29th minutes to gain the whip hand, the goal coming from full-forward Joe Stack in the 28th minute. Aaron Walsh Barry sent a long ball towards the Dublin square and Stack outmuscled his marker Kevin Burke, brother of senior player Donal, before finding the net. Blake Murphy registered his second point for Cork to move the young Rebels 1-9 to 1-7 in front, before Liam Murphy’s third free of the half kept Dublin in touch at the break.

Early in the second period, the sides were level twice, at 1-10 and 1-11 apiece, but there was a feeling that Cork were turning the screw, even before Aherne picked up that second yellow card. After Liam Murphy was hauled down by Cork goalkeeper Eoin Davis, Gibbons had that second penalty chance but his effort cleared the crossbar.

Cork managed to hold firm in a tense finish, as sub Owen McCarthy came off the bench to score two crucial points. The counties will meet again next Sunday at Croke Park – with a place in the Electric Ireland All-Ireland Minor Hurling Final on offer for the winners.

Scorers for Cork:

Daire Connery 0-6 (5f), Colin O’Brien 0-5 (3f), Joe Stack 1-0, Declan Hanlon 0-3, Blake Murphy and Owen McCarthy 0-2 each, Cormac O’Brien 0-1.
