Éire Óg win August Rebel Óg award

Éire Óg players Leah Hayes, Sophie O’Connell, Orlaith Cahalane, Niamh O’Shea, Edel Sheehan, Megan Sheehan and team captain Sadbh McGoldrick at the presentation of the  Rebel Og Award for August.

Éire Óg U14 ladies footballers are the August winners of the Rebel Óg monthly awards, sponsored by the Clayton Hotel Silver Springs and Cummins Sports, (award sponsors), in association with the Evening Echo and RedFM, (media partners), following their All-Ireland victory in the National Féile competition.

Teams from 11 different counties and also from Britain took part in the competition, hosted by Louth, Meath and Down.  However, it was Éire Óg who claimed the Division 1 Cup in their first ever final. First up for the Cork team were  Navan O’Mahonys from whom Éire Óg were expecting strong opposition as finalists in the U14 Meath county final. The Cork team emerged victorious on a scoreline of 0-9 to 0-1. Next on Friday evening was a game against Kilkenny City.

Kilkenny City showed some individual displays of pure speed and talent but on balance, Éire Óg had the upper hand with strength in depth across a panel of 23 girls won win by 0-8 to On Saturday, the hosts were the opposition as Éire Óg overcame a dogged Seneschalstown 2-8 to 2-3 to put them into the quarter-final. So it was on to Navan O’Mahonys’ grounds to play a very highly tipped Claregalway who had narrowly beaten another experienced and highly tipped Kerry Southern Gales.

Éire Óg were victorious with exhibitions of cohesive teamwork throughout the panel in defence and attack. This performance was the cornerstone to the momentum that was gathering. Next up was a trip to St Mary’s grounds in Burren for the semi-final against Dublin’s Ballyboden/St Endas. This was probably the most physical test for Éire Óg with an aggressive display from St Endas/Ballyboden.

The ethos of teamwork and work ethic got the scores on the board in the second half the final score was no reflection on the intensity of this match, 2-5 to 0-2. Éire Óg were through to the final against a highly tipped Westport. The Cork team got off to a great start with two fine early goals and shut out the Westport attack with a series of blocks to lead 2-1 to 0-1 at half-time.</p> <p>Westport came back at them in the second-half. However, Éire Óg’s defence stood strong to win by 2-2 to 0-5. When the final whistle sounded there were great scenes of unbridled joy. Indeed, the celebrations continued late into the night after the squad arrived back to the Éire Óg club well after.


Cork Underage Football Squads continue to excel

Saturday 18th August saw further positive indications of underage football improvements with the Fé 15 West squad capturing the national competition in Offaly and the Fé 16’s capturing the Inter County League in Mallow.


The Fé 16 squad were impressive in beating Galway, Roscommon and Dublin in a thrilling final. The standard of football on display was excellent and provides tentative grounds for optimism as this group head to the Minor Fé 17 grade in 2019. The other Cork Fé 16 team failed to emerge from their group suffering defeats to Galway and Dublin.

The Fé 15 West and East squads were in Offaly for the concluding parts of the Adam Mangan National Football Tournament where 33 teams took part. Both teams had won their group games in the Gradings Day on July 28th. The East Squad were short a few key players which upset their momentum from the Gradings Day. They performed well but missed out on qualification on goal difference from their group with Galway and Wicklow.

The West Squad, buoyed up by their recent success in the Munster Competition, were in excellent form once again and remain unbeaten this year winning out the Tournament. They beat Mayo in the quarter final before seeing off a determined challenge from the home county (Offaly) before advancing to beat North Kerry in the final on a scoreline of 3-11 to 1-09.

Our Fé 14 footballers were also in action. On this occasion, our West and Mid West squads were merged and our City East and North squads were playing together for the first time. Kerry and Mayo were the visitors to Mallow for a 2 groups  of 3 format. Both Cork sides acquitted themselves well with both narrowly losing to the Kerry sides while both beat Mayo convincingly.

Overall a very positive day at the office and another day which will stand to the players in their development. Great credit is due to the club coaches, parents and of course the mentors who work so hard with these squads.

East Cork overcame all challenges and won out the tournament. Our other regional teams all competed in group stages and all narrowly lost out by score difference and small margins.

The county teams have played challenge games against Kilkenny, Tipperary, Galway, Laois to get the sides ready for the new format U15 Arrabawn All Ireland tournament in Tipperary. We were drawn to play Kilkenny in the quarter final on 4th August to determine who would qualify for the CUP semi-final, the losers qualifying for the SHIELD semi-finals. After tough game that went to extra time, Cork ran out winners after to go through to the Cup semi finals where they will play a strong Clare side this weekend.

Cork U16 Hurling squads

Cork have played in two tournaments to date in Kerry last March where they ran out winners of the Todd Nolan beating limerick in semi-final and Waterford in the final. They also won the Kiladangen tournament where they beat Galway, Kilkenny and Tipperary. With some players on the county minor squad it was decided earlier in the season to allow players play in the regional Celtic League competition.

This worked out great as it ensured a lot of the players played at a good level in the regions, with both the East and West sides going all the way to the finals. The county teams only got going in July, sixty one players have got game time over the course of twelve matches to date. Games were played against Midleton & Blarney Minors, Galway, Kilkenny, Tipperary and Dublin in recent weeks.
