What an extraordinary year it’s been for Carbery Scor! Having not one, but four participating clubs at The Waterfront Hall in Belfast for the All Ireland Scór na nÓg final ensured that there was applause aplenty for the West Cork contingent for the competitors from Carbery Rangers, Clann na nGael, Sam Maguires and Tadhg MacCarthaigh.


Scór in West Cork, had its inaugural meeting at Ballinascarthy Hall in 1969 with Bill Hart, Danny Warren, the late Michael McCarthy and the officers of the Carbery Board. Bill Hart, a proud Carbery Rangers man, has remained steadfastly at the helm of Scor and is an encouraging voice to all Clubs and participants at local and regional competitions. How fitting it was that Bill recently received the Presidential medal from an t-Uachtarán Aoghan Ó Fearghaill for his distinguished service to the GAA and in particular to Scór.


Scór is a celebration of our living culture, our music, our song, our dance, our drama and storytelling, found alive and flourishing in every parish in the 32 counties of Ireland and especially so in the Carbery division. This year, 17 out of the 26 Clubs in Carbery participated in Scór na nÓg. This is first and foremost a tribute to the hard working Scór committees in each of our Clubs, to the parents, mentors and coaches and also to the support and encouragement we get from the Carbery Divisional Board who are always eager to promote all aspects of Scór. In 2016 the Carbery Scór committee along with the divisional Carbery Board held a very successful 1916 commemorative night at St. Mary’s Theatre, Rossmore, in which the representatives from each of the Clubs performed on the night.


Although Scór is alive and well in the Carbery division, it still needs a catalyst to give it the promotion and driving force it needs each year and that sums up the very vibrant Carbery Scór committee, comprising of Bill Hart, Gabrielle Crowley, Michael Kearns, Geraldine Keohane, Liam Hodnett, Micheál Ó Súilleabháin and Helen Collins. Meeting regularly in The Celtic Ross Hotel in Rosscarbery, the committee are presently organising a celebratory night on May 12th to promote and encourage participation in Scór and also to thank the hard working Scór committees at local level. Carbery has enjoyed unprecedented success in 2017 so its important to celebrate this success and also to thank the people who made it possible.


To have four Clubs from the Carbery division in an All-Ireland final in the illustrious Waterfront Theatre in Belfast is phenomenal and we are so proud of our competitors. Sam Maguires Club was represented by Shannon Buttimer in Recitation with her rendition of ‘Mary Ann McGee’. Carbery Rangers competed in the ballad group with Joan O’Donovan, Aoife MacSweeney, Kate Creedon, Orlagh O’Gorman and Rachel Hodnett singing ‘Through the eyes of an Irish Man’ and Níl ‘na Lá’. Tadhg MacCarthaigh performed ‘A Dream of Skibbereen’ in the drama/léiriú competition, the same discipline that Tadhg MacCarthaigh won an All Ireland back in 1988. Taking part for Tadhg MacCarthaigh were: Oisín Daly, Rory Kingston, Eugene Daly, Catríona Keohane, Katie Daly, Timothy Farrell, Maeve Kingston and Louise Keohane. Clann na nGael all flew the Carbery colours when they competed in the music section with a selection of reels and jigs entitled ‘The Monaghan Jig’ and ‘Johnny Cronin’s Reel. Taking part for Clann na nGael were: Davina Connolly, Saoirse Connolly, Molly McQueen and Andrew Collins.


There is an onus on every member of Cumann Luthchleas Gael to promote and support our language and culture. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Carbery Division and we are so proud, as the Carbery Scór committee to play a part in this. Go n-éirí go deo le Scór!

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.

Sarsfield are Premier 1 U16 Hurling Champions following their win over Midleton on Tuesday night. 

In a game in which both teams went toe to toe for almost 60 minutes. 

Both sides exchanged score after score as they put everything they had on the cards. 

At the break Sars led 1-8 to 0-9 as both teams kept exchanging scores. 

Sars dug deep to ensure that they would hold back the Midleton challenge in the as the clock ran out.

In the Premier two, a titanic battle between St.Finbarrs and Blackrock took place in Ballinlough. The clash of the City sides went to the wire with Blackrock coming out on top despite the hard work from the Barrs who pushed them all the way to the end.

Ballincollig had six points to spare over Carrigaline in their open game, both teams pulled off some exceptional  scores during the game. Inniscarra raised the green flag on three occasions on their way to victory over Mallow, in the nights final game, Shandrum beat Eire Og by nine points as the booked their place in the winners round of the championship.
