U8 CAMOGIE
Our U8 camogie team played Sars in fantastic conditions in Rathcormac last weekend. We had 32 players broken into 3 teams, each team playing 3 games, so all the girls got extended game time. 
The commitment from players both clubs was excellent. Thanks to Sars for traveling for the games & to our refs Caoimhe and Conor Hazelwood. 


Ladies U16 East Cork Championship

On Monday 16th we togged out against our near neighbours  Fermoy B in what promised to be a tough 1st round championship game – it was a hard fought physical game and Fermoy put it up to us for every score we secured. With our max of 5 subs brought on, We were finally victorious on a score of 3-18 to 2-04. We have a lot of work to do before our next round against Watergrasshill on the weekend of Sept 29th so see you all at training !!
Again, Well done girls & thanks to all the dedicated supporters.Also , Best of luck to our team mate Sarah Morrison traveling to Italy this week to represent our country in an international surf life saving competition.

U12 GIRLS FOOTBALL
Our u12 girls travelled to Ballinora last Friday evening to take on the home side in our 2nd game in the county. On the night our girls performed brilliant and gave it all that they could but just could not break down a resolute Ballinora defence. In the end losing out on a scoreline of 6.8 to 1.5 Training continues Tuesday evening and our next game is against St Colums this coming Saturday in Ballinora at 4.00 

U10 CAMOGIE
Bride Rovers travelled to Watergrasshill last saturday to partake in their camogie blitz.17 girls togged out for Bride Rovers which was a superb turn out and showed the undoubtedenjoyment the girls are getting from the game.We played three games against St Catherines, Erins Own and Watergrasshill, and not only did the sun shine on the day, the girls shone too.The mentor group broke the girls into two separate groups, with each group playing one half of each match in an effort to ensure that all the girls played in every match and playedin more than one positionAs well as another notable increase in the girls skill levels in whatever position on the pitchthey found themselves, it was also great to see the girls developing their teamwork andgamecraft with girls supporting each other in attack and covering each other in defense.

MINOR LADIES FOOTBALL
Our minor girls lost their match again Glanmire last Friday but have qualified for the B East Cork League Final and also the B County Championship.
We at Bride Rovers Ladies Football & Camogie Club wish Canon Leamy the very best in his new post in Mitchelstown.

Bride Rovers Ladies Football News Week 37/19

U12 GIRLS FOOTBALL

 Last Friday evening our u12 girls embarked on their 1st game of the county championship with the opposition being St Mary’s from the north cork division. With the county being played on a round robin format with the 2 top teams from each group progressing to the county final the girls new that a win was the most important thing on the night.
St Mary’s started the stronger getting the opening 2 scores of the game. As with the last few games the Briderovers girls settled in to the game and shaked off the nerves. They started to close st Mary’s down faster and with some beautiful moves and passes from defence to the forward line the scores started to come.By the end of the first half Rovers had a lead of 2.5 to 1.1 The 2nd half started much the same as the 1st had ended with the girls really turning on the style resulting in some fantastic scores to move out to a 5.09 to 2.1 lead and with 15 minutes remaining it was time for the replacements to be made showing the strenght in the panel. The girls that came on closed out the game in the same fashion as the girls that had started and Briderovers won on a scoreline of Bride Rovers 5.12 St Mary’s 4.1Big thanks to the great support for the girls on the night and all roads lead to Ballinora this coming Friday at 7.00 for our 2nd county game.

CHURCH GATE COLLECTION

Thanks to everyone who supported our Church Gate Collection on Saturday evening and Sunday morning Masses in Rathcormac and Bartlemy last weekend. This collection is a very important fundraiser for the club. Thanks for the support.   Next fundraiser is our bag pack in Dunnes Stores, Blackpool on the 27th of and 28th of September 2019.

PASSAGE WEST BLITZ

On a surprising sunny Saturday morning we were delighted to be once again part of the annual Passage monster Blitz.

We had 14 girls ready to take on Carrigaline Tigers,Shanahoe LFC,Mallow Cats and Doora Barefield Cats.

Preperation was good with plenty of chocolate and crisps taken on board before throw in. Our first game against Carrigaline Tigers was a very tough affair with very low scoring and little productive football played .Unfortunately the inexperienced referees were instructed to let the games flow but in doing so seemed afraid to blow the whistle even for the most blatant fowl .We survived the 12 minutes and went straight into a game with Shanahoe Lfc. From talking to their mentors we agreed on a less physical game and in fairness it turned out well. Both teams played some serious football with wonderful passing movements and some fabulous scores were recorded for both sides.

The girls had an hour to kill and thouroughly enjoyed the local Dj,face painting, candyfloss an ice-creams that came at a very reasonable cost. There was a great atmosphere with the girls and parents alike and the day was passing very quickly.

Our last two games against Mallow Cats and Doora Barefield don’t really bear mentioning. Unfortunately at this point the referee was more interested in talking to a friend who had joined her on the pitch! Even after a friendly chat from at least 4 different coaches she seemed unwilling to even keep up with the play. Our girls did not lie down and played their hearts out but as the tackles were ever more suited to a Rugby pitch we found it almost impossible to play any meaningful football. I was and I believe most parents and onlookers were relieved when the games came to a conclusion and no bad injuries were sustained( I cant say when the final whistle went, because I didn’t hear it all day!).

Overall it is a wonderful tournament and will be remembered for a long time for the craic, banter and laughter .Unfortunately not so much for the football.

U8 Girls

All roads lead to Passage West U8 on Saturday morning. We had 10 super players who had an amazing day start to finish.

The parade started and no other team could be heard but Bride Rovers chanting “LETS GO ROVERS LETS GO!!

The girls played four games against Macroom, Mallow Cats , Dromtarriffe and St. Senana’s.

They dug deep and supported each other and won all four games due to their phenomenal work ethic!!

The Cork Minor team gave them a surprise visit to which there was huge excitement.

At the end of the day all the girls received a lovely medal to their delight.

A big thank you to Passage West for a wonderful day we will be back again next year.

Thank you to all our supporters and coaches for making this a special day for the girls.

Team: Heidi Ryan, Faye Ryan, Hannah O’ Driscoll, Louise Finn, Riona Broderick, Allana Hickey, Charlotte Purcell, Aisling Cotter, Emily Cotter, Michaela Cotter

U6 GIRLSOur U6 girls continue training on Saturday mornings at 9.15 a.m.

U14 Girls Football  County Final

Bride Rovers 2-13  Carrigaline  6 -5

Last Sunday was D-day for our U14 footballers, competing in the County Final against a very talented Carrigaline team.  Coming into the match we had a tough win away to Valley Rovers in the Quarter Final and then made the long journey to Ballyvourney to take on Naomh Abán in the semi -final which we won by 4 points.  With two tough matches behind us this was setting us up well for Carrigaline.  Unfortunately in the first half Carrigaline out played us and scored 4 goals in succession to have a commanding lead by the time the short whistle had blown.  At the break we had a good chat with the girls and they produced a magnificent second half performance that we were all so proud of but unfortunately we came up short by the time the final whistle had blown.  We must give huge credit to all the players on the panel for their commitment all year and we now look forward to the East Cork U14 Championship. 

Our Senior ladies lost their Championship quarter final to Eire Og on Saturday the 31st of  August, 2019.  Minors ladies won their League match v Inch Rovers.  Junior Camogie ladies lost play off to Castlelyons.

2019 LGFA Activity TG4 All-Ireland Finals Weekend

From Helen O’Rourke LGFA Chief Executive

A chara

We are looking forward to the TG4 All-Ireland Finals in Croke Park on Sunday 15th September preceded by the All-Ireland Club 7’s on the Saturday of the weekend.

We would like to encourage as many clubs as possible to take part on this biggest weekend of the year in the Ladies Gaelic Football calendar. Let’s try and beat our record of 50,141 attendance last year.

With this in mind we would like to remind all counties and clubs that LGFA activity is not permitted on the weekend in question unless taking part in the 7’s or on All Ireland Day.

As per Congress ruling it is only underage (U14-U18) games and training that will be allowed to go ahead on the Friday of the All Ireland weekend but not on Saturday or Sunday.

No Adult Fixtures are permitted to go ahead within counties or provinces.

It is essential that all clubs are aware of this as players will not be covered under the injury fund.

We look forward to hopefully seeing you in attendance in Croke Park supporting all teams involved!

U13 Development Inter-county Blitz CIT on Sat 31/Aug

  • Next Saturday 31st of August 4 teams consisting of almost 80 girls from clubs all over the East Cork Division will be representing their division in a Inter-county blitz held in CIT.

  • We want to make a great day for the girls to perform and play the sport they love against the likes of Kerry, Clare, Tipp and Waterford.
  • We would appreciate all the support from the clubs here to keep this date clear of fixtures affecting girls born 2006/07.

U14 GIRLS FOOTBALL

Bride Rovers  6- 8  Naomh Abán 6-4

On a misty evening last Monday night we travelled to Ballyvourney where we played a very strong Naomh aBán outfit in the U14 Football County Semi- Final.  From the throw in Naomh Abán  were first to attack and immediately put us under a lot  of pressure , scoring 2 goals in quick success and before we knew it we found ourselves 7 points behind.  We began to settle into the game and started playing a very attractive brand of football, which we convert into scores.  As the half time whistle blew Bride Rovers lead by 5 -7 to  2- 3. Even with a 13 point lead we knew we weren’t home and dry playing against a strong talented team like Naomh Abán, and true to form they started the second half like they did the first and put our backs under pressure from the word go, they went on to score 3 goals and a point without an answer bringing it back to a 3 point game.  With our girls never give up attitude we tagged on a goal and a point to run out winners by 4 points in the end.  A fantastic and entertaining game by two talented teams.   Well done to the whole panel who put in a fantastic effort and are justly rewarded with a place in the County Final  against Carrigaline next Sunday 1st. of September, 2019.

SENIOR LADIES FOOTBALL

Our senior ladies football team had a good win against Fermoy on Monday night in Fermoy in their third match of their round robin county championship matches. Scorers on the night were Grace Culloty 1-3, Grace Kearney 0-2, Katie Quirke 1-1 (pen, 1 free).  Emma Roche 1-0, Jennifer Barry 0-1. It was a great team performance well done girls.  Full time score Fermoy 2-9 Bride Rovers 3-7.

Next match v Eire Og date and time TBD.                 

U12 Girls Football
League champions u12 
Bride Rovers u12 girls went in to this league final on back of an unbeaten league campaign but yet allways knowing that St Nicks were going to be a tough opposition and so it proved. The game started at a blistering pace with Nicks opening the scoring with a well worked goal. This was the early warning that Rovers needed as from here they settled in to the game and scored 2.2 with out answer.The 1st half ended with Rovers leading 3.4 to 2.2The 2nd half was same with the ball moving from end to end with both backs doing well.Rovers tacked on some beautiful scores to move out to a 9 point lead and sustained fierce pressure in the final 5 mins to hold on for a momentous win.Well done to all the girls and thank you to all the parents and supporters that came out to shout on the girls. We would also like to thank Glanmire ladies club for having the field in top condition for the game Next up is the start of our county campaign against St Mary’s on Sat 7th in Rathcormac.Also a massive well done to the Bride Rovers u14 girls who have qualified for their respective county final.

U10 CAMOGIE

The under 10 camogie team had what could be easily described as a “busy” weekend, playing 6 matches between Sunday morning and Monday evening.We started Sunday morning with a trip to Castlelyons to partake in their blitz where we played two teams from Sarsfields and one from Watergrasshill.   No sooner had the dust settled on the Castlelyons pitch and it was announced that Fermoy had invited us in along with our under 8 camogie team monday evening to play three matches against them.Over the course of the weekend 20 different girls represented Bride Rovers under 10s, 16 playing in Castlelyons and 17 playing in Fermoy, on both days the mentor group attempted to ensure that all the girls got equal game time and that the girls played different positions.
The progression rate from the girls is quite astounding , with plenty of fearless blocking, hooking, striking, soloing and hand passing on show from all the young ladies over the two days, along with the odd sliothar being ‘set fire to’ if it decided to stop in front of the Bride Rovers goal !,  The girls are now beginning to understand the different positions on the pitch and to believe in themselves and to trust the skills they’ve been nurturing throughout the season Many thanks to Castlelyons for the invite and their hospitality and also to Fermoy for their invite, most importantly, huge thanks must go to the parents, giving up their morning off to bring the girls to the blitz and then having to rush home from work the next evening to get the girls into Fermoy for the next series of games.
The girls ever growing love for camogie and ever improving skill set is in no small part down to all the support, encouragement and belief that all the parents have in the girls, the mentor group truely appreciate all the efforts the parents undoubtedly make, at matches, training and at home,      Bride Rovers Abu ! 

RATHCORMAC 4 MILE ROAD RACE
Congratulations on a job well done to Liam Barry and his team for what was undoubtedly a hugely successful Rathcormac 4 Mile Road Race.  Huge thanks to all those involved to the runners, helpers, spectators and sponsors.

U12 COUNTY LEAGUE, FIRST ROUND CHANGE OF DATE

From the County Board Secretary

Dear Secretary,
Please inform your U12 manager that Round 1 of the U12 county league will now be played on/before 7th September. Originally, it was 6th September in the expectation that the Cork Senior camogie team would be in the All Ireland final. Now as they have lost the semi final, clubs will most likely not travel to Croke Park that weekend and clubs will be able to play their matches. The following weekend, games must be played on/before 13th September as there will be an embargo on all LGFA games on 14th & 15th September due to the All Ireland championship finals. This is regardless of whether or not Cork reach the All Ireland final.
