Experienced referees Justin Murphy and Ciaran O’Regan were on hand to deliver the course.

Other young referee programmes will take place in the coming weeks.

Last year was tremendous for the club, which hails from the parish of Dunmanway, in west Cork. The club draws its players from the Doheny and Randal Óg adult clubs. It caters for both hurling and football fielding teams, from U6 up to minor.

Pride of place for 2017 goes to their minor footballers, who were crowned Minor ‘A’ County football champions, having defeated Bantry in the final, 3-7 to 0-6. In the semi-final, they had defeated Passage, 2-11 to 0-7.

The team also won the West Region championship, beating Castlehaven, O’Donovan Rossa, and Bantry in the final, 2-10 to 0-5. They also won the Minor A West football league and the County A league, defeating Aghada by a point in the final, 1-8 to 1-7.

This minor team had a lot of players in the under-17 bracket, called to play Premier ‘1’ football against the best teams in the county.

The team was well-balanced and included two county U17 players, in Eoin Murray and Fionn Herlihy. Jerry O’Farrell was an outstanding captain and team leader, while Keith White was a key player in the forward division.

Team manager was Tony White, along with selectors, Neil Collins, Finny Collins, Cathal Crowley, John Barry, and Jerry O’Mahony.

A spokesman said: “The club are so proud of their commitment to hurling and, even though they are not hurling titles in 2017, they are competing in the U 16 A county hurling championship in 2018.

“The last minor football team to win a county title was in 2011, when we defeated Clonakilty in the Premier 2 Championship final. Former Cork senior hurler and current Munster and Ireland rugby international, Darren Sweetnam, was on that team, along with Eoin Lavers, Sean Daly, and Mark Buckley”.

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.

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.

Overall Rebel Og Awards takes place

On Saturday night last, the overall Rebel Og Awards 2017 function took place in Clayton Hotel Sliversprings.

In a year in which we celebreated the success of our 12 monthly winners and announced our overall 2017 winner.

 

Kiltha Og took the January award for 2017, with their U14 hurlers winning both the Premier 2 championship and league. Add in success too at U16 A and U12 Premier 2 level in the leagues to make it a great season last year for the Castlemartyr, Dungourney, Mogeely and Clonmult combination.

 

They were followed in February by St Colman’s College, Fermoy, winners of the Dean Ryan Cup.
It took a replay to separate themselves and Thurles CBS, as the school secured their first win in this competition in 14 years. The joint captains, Eoin and Brian Roche, were the feature a few times during the year at the monthly awards and it wasn’t the only trophies they picked up during the year.

It was the turn of handball stars, Stephen O’Rourke and Niall Delany, from Mallow, to be honoured in March. They won the U17 All-Ireland championship for Cork, with wins over Tipperary, Clare and Waterford to first take the Munster title. A win over Cavan set up a final meeting with Wexford, with the Mallow boys in outstanding form in the final to be crowned All-Ireland champions.

The Carbery Scor group took the accolade in April, made up of representatives from the Tadhg MacCarthaigh, Sam Maguires, Clann na nGael and Carbery Rangers clubs. Their wins in the ballad, recitation, drama and music sections saw another All-Ireland title head to the Rebel county.

A Simcox Cup win for St Francis College, Rochestown, their first since 1950, saw them pick up the May award.
Wins over MSM Rosscarbery, Kanturk and Hamilton High to set up a final clash with Colaiste Choilm, Ballincollig.
This was never going to be an easy game the Roco found themselves trailing by 0-9 to 0-3 early on. They rallied to cut it to four by half-time and a goal from David Andrews, in the second-half, helped put them back on level terms to see the drive on to victory.

Four clubs were honoured in June, for their success at the National Feile hurling competitions. Sarsfields won the Division 1 camogie title, with Na Piarsaigh winners of the Division 3 hurling championship. Cuchullains came out on top of the Division 6 competition and St Kevin’s in the Division 11 final.
Most of the Sars team went on to win the Feile football title with Glanmire the following month, making it a national double for them.

Another bit of history was created by the July winners, Ballinora GAA Club, as their U14 footballers won the Cork Division 2 Feile title for the first time.
They went on to represent the county at the national finals in Cavan/Monaghan, where they were beaten, after extra-time, by Maynooth in the quarter-final.

The August winners saw the Roche brothers back as monthly winners, as they were part of the Cork side that won the All-Ireland U17 hurling title. Again another bit of history here as they became the inaugural winners of this competition as minor switches to U17 for the next few years at least.
The twin brothers collected the All-Ireland Cup on behalf of Cork, making it a great day for the county, them, their familes and their club, Bride Rovers.

They were back again in September as the Cork minor squad was honoured for winning the Munster title, the first win at this level for the Rebels since 2008.
A win over Waterford set up a semi-final clash with Tipperary, with the first game ending all square. The replay, at Pairc Ui Rinn, saw more than 8,000 people present, one of the biggest crowds ever at a stand-alone minor game.
The Rebels came through and went on to defeate Clare in the Munster final, before just losing out to Galway in the All-Ireland decider.

Bandon U15s picked up the October award, as they won the double, winning their respective hurling and football championships. Their hurlers beat Youghal in their final and the footballers got the better of Wolfe Tones (Kanturk).

The November award went to Bride Rovers, for their success at U16 and minor level.
The U16s got the better of near-neighbours, Fermoy, in the county final and their minors defeated Kilshannig in their respective final. Once again the Roche brothers featured here, this time in their club colours.

There were also joint winners in December, with Eire Og minor footballers and the Inniscarra minor hurlers honoured.
Both won their respective titles for the first time, with the Ovens side winning the Premier 1 MFC, defeating Douglas in the final and Inniscarra taking the Premier 2 MHC, getting the better of Blackrock in the final.
Both sides also won their respective leagues, making them double winners for the season.

OVERALL WINNERS

 

THE Cork U17 hurlers where the overall winners at the Rebel Óg annual awards at the Clayton Hotel Silver Springs.

It’s the first year that there is an overall winner and on the night few could argue that they were worthy winners.

Under coach, John Considine, they lifted the inaugural All-Ireland title in August, with a two-point victory over Dublin, 1-19 to 1-17. They added this to the Munster title they had won previously in the year.

Those young players, at the new minor inter-county age, created their own little bit of history and it’s always nice to be the inaugural winners of any competition.

Accepting the award, Considine said that, in Cork, we were in a lucky position that any year you take charge of a team, you are in with a chance of winning an All-Ireland and, thankfully, it worked out for them last year.

They started on the run to Croker at the Gaelic Grounds in April, where they took on Limerick in the first round of the Munster Championship, a game they won by 0-16 to 0-6.

Next up was Tipperary, at Páirc Uí Rinn, in the semi-final. After a top-class game, the Rebels came through, 2-22 to 2-9.

On to the Munster final and the young Rebels were on the road again, this time to Dungarvan to take on Waterford. Again these young stars showed what they are made of and, despite giving up home advantage, they won by 3-13 to 1-12.

The All-Ireland semi-final clash with Galway was never going to be an easy game. Played at Semple Stadium it was close all the way before the Rebels won by 1-19 to 1-17.

It was on to the All-Ireland final on August 6 and new ground for these young players. For a start, with a noon throw-in, it meant having to travel up to Dublin the night before. Something like this, a change from normal routine, can upset players but not this Cork side, and after another close game, they were crowned champions, winning 1-19 to 1-17.

The Hall of Fame inductee was Micheál MacSuibhne for his contribution as a player, then as an administrator with the old Bord na nÓg and his club, Carrigaline.

Jamie’s Story 

“I am Jamie Wall. I am a footballer and a hurler. I am also a wheelchair user.

I was born on the 21st of July 1992, in Our Lady of Lourdes hospital, Drogheda, Co. Louth and since I was old enough to walk, I was old enough to play. I played my first football match in Oristown Co. Meath aged 4 for my local naíonra vs. The local junior infant class. I got the bug early on.

I was brought up on a diet of Manchester United, Meath football, and later, Cork GAA. As a 5 year old I dreamt of being Gary Neville one day, Colm Coyle the next.
On the 4th of July 2010 I won my first Munster championship. On the 9th of August 2014, I watched from a wheelchair as my teammates won my first All Ireland.

On the 28th of June, 2014, I should have captained my club, Kilbrittain, in the second round of the cork Premier Intermediate hurling championship. Instead, I was rushed to hospital with an epidural abscess on my spine, which had, and has since rendered me paralysed from the midriff down.

Since then I have engaged in rehabilitative therapies, first in Beaumont hospital, and then the NRH in Dún Laoghaire. I have spent almost 8 months in hospital.

Today I am a free man, as such. There is a wonderful life to be led, from the chair or on foot. One I intend to lead. But I also want more. I’ve got a new bug. Something new lights my fire today. I am young, I am fit, and I am willing.

I want to pursue further recovery from spinal injury. Last year I took part in Mark Pollock’s 5 & 10k race, the run in the dark. This year, I want to join the group of people who want to be part of a different race. The race for the cure.

The most important piece of advice I was ever given came in the form of simple mantra;

‘Never Give Up, Never Let Up.’


GAA Foundation Course

GAA Foundation Course

 

The GAA Foundation Course is the first step in coaching at any age level. Foundation Courses are open to all Clubs, Schools, Individuals & Sporting organisations. With legislation now in place its advisable that all adult mentors and coaches of teams must have a minimum of Foundation Course completed before they can become a coach.

This also applies to Cul Camps, Easter Camps & Halloween Camps etc. (this does not apply to younger club members helping out at these camps) . There must be a certified Coach in charge at all times for any club activity involving games, training or camp activities.

The Foundation Course is also the first step in progressing to Award 1 and Award 2. Going forward clubs will have to have coaches qualified at Award 1 or Award 2 involved in their adult teams to comply with legislation. As a “Foundation Coach” you must be either coaching/assisting or actively involved with an underage team & you must attend a minimum of 2 workshops provided by Cork Coaching & Games throughout the year.

The Foundation Award course is aimed at beginner coaches and will enable participants to assist a coach in the organisation of activities to develop Hurling or Gaelic football. The course is 7 ½ hours in duration (or 9 hours for dual hurling and football course) and covers 4 key modules, as well as Introductory and Conclusion modules.

These 4 modules are:

• Introduction to Games

• Skill Development

• Movement Skills

• Coaching Children, Youths and Adults

The focus of the course is the development of the ‘How to Coach’ skills by placing the participant in situations that they will face as coaches – the organisation of games activities, activities to develop skill and activities to develop the various movement skills.

By the end of this course participants will be able to:

• Assist a coach in organising a programme of Games and Skill Development activities appropriate to each participants needs and abilities

• Identify the Skills of Hurling and Gaelic Football

• Assist a coach in organising progressive activities (drills and fun games) to develop 5 key skills

Garda Vetting for the new season

Garda Vetting


Ahead of the new GAA season and as clubs appoint coaches to work with underage teams, please ensure that your coach is Garda Vetted. Below is some important information on garda vetting for all people involved in working with underage players.

 


Vetting in the GAA

The GAA has a long established principle of vetting any person who, on our behalf, works with children or vulnerable adults in our Association. This principle is enshrined in rule through our Code of Best Practice in Youth Sport and has become part of the overall recruitment and selection process for those who wish to work with us in the GAA, in a voluntary or paid role.

Vetting services for the Association are currently overseen by the National Childrens Office in Croke Park while Comhairle Uladh acts on our behalf in coordinating AccessNI services.

Our international units are obliged to adhere to the legislative vetting and police background checks that are required in the jurisdiction in which they operate.

Who needs to be vetted?
In the GAA any person who carries out a role of responsibility such as coaching, managing or training underage teams or indeed adult teams that contain any player under 18 yrs. of age must be vetted. It also applies to organising underage activities or refereeing underage games.  Thereafter, each club shall decide if other roles merit a person being vetted.

Legislation

The National Vetting Bureau (Children & Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012 – 2016 commenced on 29th April 2016 and from that date a statutory obligation was placed upon the GAA to ensure that all persons who on our behalf undertook ‘relevant work’ with children has been vetted prior to taking up that role in Ireland.

The term ‘relevant work’ in the GAA includes any role of responsibility such as coaching, managing or training underage teams or indeed adult teams that contain any player under 18 yrs. of age. It also applies to organising underage activities or refereeing underage games.

The Act also established the National Vetting Bureau (NVB) to oversee the e-vetting services previously administered by the Garda Central Vetting Unit.

Is it an offence if you are not vetted?

It is a criminal offence, for a person acting on behalf of the GAA, or for the GAA as an Association to permit any person to commence working with children on behalf of the Association without that person first obtaining a vetting disclosure from the National Vetting Bureau in respect of the role for which they have been recruited.  It is also a breach of GAA rule if you are working with children or vulnerable adults on behalf of the Association and have not been vetted.

What if the vetting applicant is under 18 yrs. of age?

GAA vetting services are available to any person over 16 yrs. of age fulfilling a role of responsibility with children or vulnerable adults. A parental consent form (NVB Parent/Guardian Consent Form) must be completed, this is available here, for applicants between 16 and 18 yrs. of age

E-Vetting in the GAA

Please read the information and guidance below before commencing this process. The online vetting form can be found here.

E-Vetting

When the Vetting Act came into being on 29 April 2016 the GAA became one of the first organisations to replace ‘paper vetting’ with a new on line or E –Vetting system.

E-Vetting replaces all previous paper vetting systems which also brings us in line with similar e-vetting services as coordinated by Ulster GAA for AccessNI.

How can you be vetted through the GAA?

Vetting for a member of the GAA involves 3 easy to follow steps as follows:

Step 1

The initial application vetting process at Club level.You must in the first instance complete the GAA E-Vetting ID Form.

This form compels you to provide proof of your identity to the Club Children’s Officer, who must verify that they have received the ID verification as required.  The ID verification may be retained by the Club Children’s Officer for the duration of the e-vetting process or it may be attached by you at Step 2 to the On Line Vetting application Form.

DECEMBER 2017 WINNERS

Éire Óg

Premier Minor Football County Champions & County League Winners 2017

and

Inniscarra 

Premier Minor 2 Hurling Champions & County League Winners 2017

ÉIRE ÓG FOOTBALLERS and INNISCARRA HURLERS, who won the 2017 County Championships and County Leagues, are the joint November 2017 winners of the Rebel Óg Monthly Awards sponsored by the Clayton Hotel Silver Springs, Cummins Sports (Award Sponsors) with RedFM and The Evening Echo (Media Partners).  They follow November Winners,  Bride Rovers U16 and Minor Hurlers, who won the County Championships, October Winners Bandon,  September Winners, Cork Minor Hurlers, August winners Cork U17 Hurlers, July Winners Ballinora Juvenile GAA Club,  quartet of June Winners, Féile na nGael Champions Sarsfields, Na Piarsaigh, Cuchullains and St. Kevin’s.  January 2017 winners were Kiltha Óg, February Winners St. Colman’s College Fermoy, March winners Stephen O’Rourke and Niall Delany from Mallow, winners of the All-Ireland U17 Handball Championship, April Winners, Carbery Scór and the May 2017 Winners St. Francis College Rochestown, winners of the Simcox Cup.  2016 winners were Na Piarsaigh Minor Hurlers, Cork Ladies Minor Football Team, Sarsfield U14 Camogie Team, Glen Rovers U14 Hurlers, Mizen Rovers, Mitchelstown CBS, Scoil Mhuire Gan Smál Blarney, Kilmurry Footballers, Buttevant Underage GAA Club and Mitchelstown Footballers and Ballygiblin Hurlers, Kilshannig Hurling Teams and Mallow Juvenile GAA Club.  2015 winners were Ahán Gaels, Midleton U15 Footballers, Cork’s Eimear Scally, Aghabullogue U16 Hurlers, Cork U15 Development Squad, Douglas U14 Footballers, St. Finbarrs U14 Hurlers, Christian Brothers Cork, Coláiste Chríost Rí, Coláiste an Phiarsaigh (Camogie) Sacred Heart Clonakilty (Camogie) and Ilen Rovers.

INNISCARRA MINOR HURLERS created history when they were crowned Cork County Premier 2 Champions for the very first time on 11th September last in Pairc Ui Rinn, defeating a gallant Blackrock team in the Final. 

The Inniscarra campaign started in Blarney in July against Mallow when after a close encounter, late goals helped Inniscarra to come out on top. They then faced Blackrock in Caherlag where a great start against a very strong wind set them up for a comfortable victory.

The next round was at the Mardyke on 6th September for the County Semi-Final v St Finbarr’s. Level with 10 minutes to go, a strong finishing burst scoring 7 points without reply got Inniscarra over the line in some style. They then faced Blackrock again in the Final on 11th September and after a very competitive game were thrilled to come out on top with a 3 point victory. Anyone involved in sport will tell you that’s it is not easy to beat any opposition twice in the same year in the same competition so Liam Kennedy’s charges were well motivated to get their revenge but on the night Inniscarra just edged past Blackrock in the last ten minutes  in a very sporting and exciting encounter. Interestingly, all 3 Premier Level Minor Hurling Finals this year were repeat pairings of earlier rounds but thankfully Inniscarra did enough to uphold the form of their earlier match against Blackrock in Caherlag giving Inniscarra a Historic Victory (the other 2 County Finals saw a reverse of earlier round results).

Inniscarra progressed to the County League Final on 25th November v Shandrum in Cloughduv and again after a good competitive hour of Hurling they emerged victorious by 4 points.  

Team Management for the Minor Hurlers in 2017: Daire Holland, Seanie O’Mahony and Eugene O’Sullivan (Coach), Medical Rita Cronin

Whilst it is the Minor Team that are being recognised today for their achievements, there are a lot of reasons for their success. Don Hennessy would have coached all these lads in National schools when they were starting off in his role as School Liaison Coach. Inniscarra have a very hard working Juvenile Club under the Guidance of Chairman Leo Murphy, Secretary Margaret O’Connell and Club na nÓg Chairperson Kevin Keohane who are all keeping up the good work and good practice that has been handed on from previous Officers and continuing to promote CLCG to the youth within the Parish. Inniscarra currently cater for nearly 300 boys from Under 6 to Under 18 so the challenges are big but the effort and willingness to meet these challenges is thankfully much bigger. Club Chairman Michael O’ Driscoll and Club Secretary Enda Linehan are very proactive in promoting and supporting every team within the Club and are hugely involved in all aspects of making sure that the Club runs as smoothly as possible.
It is without doubt the most exciting time ever to be involved in Inniscarra GAA Club. Since the Minor County Success on 11th September, the Under 21 Hurlers captured the A County defeating Fermoy in the Final for our first ever victory   In addition the Under 16 Hurlers won the Premier 2 Hurling League defeating Shandrum in the Final. Inniscarra’s Under 15 Hurlers are also in the Premier 2 League Final. The Under 13’s won P2 Hurling League and Autumn Hurling League, Under 12’s  won P1 Football League.
Under 8’s to Under 11’s all participate in Rebel Og Blitzes and the Inniscarra Club is extremely proactive in Both Player & Coach Pathway 
Inniscarra had 3 County Winning Minor Hurlers on the Cork Under 17 Panel this year who won a great Munster and All Ireland Hurling Series so to Con O’ Leary, Liam Ryan and Owen McCarthy and the rest of the Cork Under 17 Team under John Considine and his Management, the club extend their heartiest congratulations.
We sincerely thank Rebel Og for this award. It is something that we as a Club are extremely proud to get and it is genuinely appreciated. We look forward with huge anticipation to all matters CLCG in 2018
SCARRA ABÚ
ÉIRE OG’S Journey to Premier 1 League and championship success started in September with a comprehensive over St. Finbarrs (1-18 to 1-12). A win over Nemo Rangers in the Quarter Final (1-13 to 1-10) led to the Semi-final v Carrigaline (1-14 to 0-8). Facing Douglas in the Final was a challenge and success was achieved after a tough competitive battle with both teams neck and neck until the final Whistle. (2-8 to 1-12).

Captained by James O’Sullivan and Vice-Captain Shane Quigley, this group have played together since U13 P2 league success in 2012, Championship losses v Carrigaline at U14 P1 and vs Nemo Rangers at U16 P1 bonded these young men into achieving a historic Double success in 2017, a first for Éire Óg at this level.

We hope to see much more of them in the Future. Congratulations also to their Manager Alan O’Regan & mentors Damien Lordan, John O’Shea & Vincy O’Connell.

NOVEMBER 2017 WINNERS

BRIDE ROVERS

U16 and Minor Hurlers, County Champions

Rebel Og Award for November to Bride Rovers

The Bride Rovers U16 and Minor Hurlers, who won the County Championships, are the November 2017 winners of the Rebel Óg Monthly Awards sponsored by the Clayton Hotel Silver Springs, Cummins Sports (Award Sponsors) with RedFM and The Evening Echo (Media Partners).  They follow  October Winners Bandon,  September Winners, Cork Minor Hurlers, August winners Cork U17 Hurlers, July Winners Ballinora Juvenile GAA Club,  quartet of June Winners, Féile na nGael Champions Sarsfields, Na Piarsaigh, Cuchullains and St. Kevin’s.  January 2017 winners were Kiltha Óg, February Winners St. Colman’s College Fermoy, March winners Stephen O’Rourke and Niall Delany from Mallow, winners of the All-Ireland U17 Handball Championship, April Winners, Carbery Scór and the May 2017 Winners St. Francis College Rochestown, winners of the Simcox Cup.  

The 2017 season has been a tremendous one for the Bride Rovers Juvenile Club of Rathcormac/Bartlemy/Kildinan parish. The Bride Rovers Club was formed in 1928 and during the 1970’s a separate Juvenile club came into existence. For the last three years the Chairman of the Juvenile Club, which caters for hurling and football from under 6 to under18, has been Paddy Hynes. Under his leadership the Club has enjoyed a remarkable ‘Golden Era’ with no fewer than 10 County League and championship Tiles coming to the Banks of the Bride. Assisted by Secretary Lisa Collins and Treasurer Ken O’Riordan Paddy Hynes has led a fantastic group of players, team mentors and trainers.

With some under 14 players on the under 16 team and under 16 players on the Minor team the last few months have been hectic for the Club culminating with the October Bank Holiday weekend when two County Hurling Championship titles were captured. 

The Bride Rovers Under 16 hurlers participated in the North Region this year for the first time. The Championship campaign began in Kildorrery on September the 4th with a 3-20 to 0-6 win over Charleville. A week later at the same venue the team came a half time deficit to record a good semi-final win over Ballyhea on a scoreline of 2 18 to 3 8. Just three nights later at the Kilworth venue Bride Rovers crossed camáns with their neighbours Fermoy. After a great contest Bride Rovers won the Title by 1-12 to 0-11. On Sunday October the 8th they travelled to Mayfield to take on Ibane Gaels in the county Quarter Final. First half goals from Kieran Kearney and Edmond Cashman saw Bride Rovers seven points ahead. Ibane then hit seven points in a row. The teams were level at half time and twice Ibane went ahead in the second half. Unerring accuracy from frees by Cian Hogan saw Bride Rovers through by two point on a final score of 2-14 to 0-18. Six days later at high noon on Saturday October 14th Bride Rovers met Aghabullogue in the semi-final. A goal from Thomas Macek just before the break saw Bride Rovers lead by 1-11 to 2-3 at the short whistle. They added a further nine points to win by 1-20 to 3-6 and qualify for the County Final.

The County Under 16 championship decider was repeat of the North Final against Fermoy. The venue was Killeagh on Saturday October 28th. Since the North Final Bride Rovers had lost Matthew Quinn with a serious hand injury so Fermoy were confident of overturning the Kilworth result. Kieran Kearney scored an early goal for Bride Rovers and it proved to be the crucial score of the game. Having lead by four points after the first six minutes Fermoy then went a point ahead but Rovers levelled per Kieran Kearney before Cian Hogan put them up two, 1-5 to 0-6 at the break. The second half was brilliant hurling. Bride Rovers were under severe pressure holding on to a three point lead but points from Cian and David Barry saw them win by five, 1-10 to 0-8. 

The Minor Hurlers got their campaign off to a winning start on Monday July 31st. After a thriller at Mayfield Bride Rovers defeated Ballygarvan by a single point 3-16 to 2-18.  The next Minor game was the Wednesday after the All Ireland Minor Hurling Final. In Castlelyons Bride Rovers Minors faced St. Catherine’s and after a keen game they were through to the East Final v Cobh. Played in Aghada on Saturday September 16th the East Final was productive of great hurling.   Bride Rovers had plenty chances but Cobh won by a single point, 2-11 to 1-13. All was not lost however because both winners and runners up advanced in the County.  Just a week after losing to Cobh Bride Rovers faced Bandon in Ballincollig. Having lead by three points, 0-8 to 0-5, at the break Brian Roche helped Bride Rovers to a 1- 12 to 0-6 win. A week later it was down to Killeagh for the County Semi Final against Cobh, a repeat of the East Final. On this occasion Bride Rovers made no mistake with goals from Conor Barry and Brian Roche helping them to a 2-16 to 1-7 win.

The County Final was played on Bank Holiday Monday October 30th in Killavullen against Kilshannig. It was brilliant game of hurling. First half goals from Cian Hogan and Brian Roche saw Bride Rovers lead by 2-12 to 0-10 at the short whistle. A Conor Barry free put them nine ahead but back came Kilshannig with two goals. Bride Rovers never panicked and eight points in a row saw them win the County Title by 2-21 to 2-11. Joint team Captains John O’ Sullivan and Jordan Mannix were presented with the Cup by John Purcell.

Special mention must be made of the Roche brothers on their contribution to both club and Cork victories; both had an outstanding season, culminating in winning the U17 All-Ireland title with Cork.
