Clubs honoured for Féile cup successes
FIVE Cork Féile Cup winning teams are the June winners of the Rebel Óg Monthly awards, sponsored by the Clayton Hotel, Silver Springs and Cummins Sports (award sponsors) and in association with The Echo and RedFM, media partners.
In camogie the three winners are Éire Óg, Clonakilty and Ballyhea/Milford and in hurling it is Bandon and Killeagh/Ita’s.
Éire Óg won the Division 1 title, having deafeat fellow Cork side, Sarsfields, in the final at Castle Road by 0-5 to 0-2. Their victory was all the better as they were taken to extra-time in their semi-final, just an hour or so before the final.
Clonakilty were crowned Division 2 winners and the final against Loughgiel Shamrocks from Antrim, who had topped their group, was a tough contest. But a goal from Katie O’Driscoll just before half-time swung the game in their favour as they won 2-5 to 1-3.
Ballyhea/Milford were winners in Division 5, getting the better of Causeway from Kerry in the final. Clara Crowley got the all-important goal in their 1-8 to 0-4 win.
In the hurling deciders Bandon were the Division 5 victors, thanks to a 4-8 to 3-5 win over Four Roads, Roscommon. It took extra-time to separate these two sides, in a pulsating game. Sean Ahern got a point to take it to extra-time, with Darragh Collins getting the goal in extra-time to win it.
Killeagh/Ita’s, who are also off to the football next weekend, won Division 6, with a 3-8 to 0-4 victory over Mullinavat, Kilkenny, in the final.
