Bride Rovers Ladies Football News 38/17

On Thursday afternoon Bride Rovers ladies football team played at home to Cobh in the first round of the East Cork Championship. We anticipated a difficult encounter and the home side got off to a good start with two early points from Ciara. However, this was soon cancelled out by two goals and a point in quick succession from Cobh despite the best efforts of the defenders and goalkeeper. Three points from Shauna clawed back some of the deficit but Cobh scored another two goals before the half time whistle, the score at the break 0-5 to 4-1. Despite the huge gap, Bride Rovers were positive coming into the second half as they had been playing against a strong wind in the opening half and the scores did not really reflect the team’s efforts and ability. Goals from Caoimhe Barry and Shauna and a point from Kate brought the Rovers back into the game and with fifteen minutes to go, there was only three points between the teams. However, Cobh responded with a goal and a point and the gap widened again to seven points. Depsite three further goals for the home team from Abbie Hoare, Caoimhe Barry and Lily Murray, Cobh kept responding with scores and were the eventual winners by a four point margin. Well done to both sides on a very competitive and sporting game which produced brilliant team work and effort by each and every player.
Panel: Cliona Edmunds, Alanna Broderick, Naoise McCarthy, Alice Murray, Niamh O’Sullivan, Leah Hallihan, Caoimhe Kielty, Shauna Hayes, Sarah Morrison, Ava Hallihan, Abby Keating, Megan Buckley, Kate Larkin, Ciara O’Flynn, Caoimhe Barry, Caoimhe Gubbins, Lily Murray, Abbie Hoare, Carol Kingston, Lili Czabany, Mollie O’Connell, Ruby Broderick

On Friday night last Bride Rovers Gaelic for Mothers and Others (G4M&O) hosted a mini blitz with Inch Rovers and Bishopstown travelling to provide great opposition and a fantastic evening of football was enjoyed. Our thanks to Liam and Sheila Mannix in Barry’s Bar for providing the much needed refreshments for the teams afterwards.

Bride Rovers G4M&O have been chosen to play at half time during one of the All Ireland Ladies Football finals in Croke Park on Sunday next 24th of September. These ladies have been training since May with the hope of playing on the hallowed turf on the biggest day in the Associations calendar. Bride Rovers have a panel of 22 who like all other clubs involved in this initiative are not playing competitive football. Each year the LGFA pick 6 teams to represent their clubs and counties at the half time exhibition games by asking the teams to enter a competition for this illustrious prize. Bride Rovers entered a well-rehearsed video that had members of the panel turning their hands to acting. Our sincere thanks to Ben Hogan for his professionalism with both the drone footage and the final compilation of the various scenes. Places were limited for the trip but the panel and mentors all set for the capital and representing the rest of the group are: Mary Ryan, Catherine Guinan, Marie Prior, Stephanie Jones, Sinead O’ Driscoll, Martina Hoskins Somers, Caroline Broderick, Catherine Hegarty, Fiona O’ Callaghan, Michelle O’ Brien, Kate O’ Driscoll, Clodagh Bermingham, Evelyn Murphy, Linda Ahern and Irene Hogan. The ladies will be looking their best in the specially commissioned kit supplied by Croke Park as part of the prize and with their new Bride Rovers club tops kindly sponsored by Liam Barry of Fermoy Print and Design. The entire panel is extremely grateful to Liam and all at Fermoy Print and design for this very generous sponsorship. While it is disappointing that the Cork Senior Ladies Footballers are not in the Senior final this year the Rebel county will be well represented by this fantastic bunch of ladies that have improved so much as a unit since the beginning of the season. Although this will be the final event for the team for the year the future is very bright for the Rovers G4M&O group which will undoubtedly go from strength to strength in seasons to come. For now though it will be a dream come true for some members to finally get to play in Croke Park in the twilight of their football careers and for others it is a great way to start their footballing careers. Either way it is a historic occasion for all involved and an experience that will no doubt live long in their memories. Finally a special thanks to the Bride Rovers Ladies Football and Camogie club officers for all their help and support throughout the season and to the supporters of the Mammy’s we look forward to seeing and hearing ye in Croke Park on Sunday. Rovers Abu.

Aghada Ladies Football News 38/17

Aghada Ladies Junior A Champions 2017

Aghada 4-14 Naomh Abán 1-5

A fine crowd gathered in Mayfield on Saturday last to watch the 2017 Junior A Ladies Football Final. It was the first time that these two teams had met and also the first time that the Aghada girls were in an Adult A County Final. Unfortunately the weather didn’t play ball with a light mist falling for the whole hour.

It was nip and tuck in the early stages of the match with the seaside opening the scoring with two points from the boot of Emma Farmer. Christine Moran kicked the next point of the game before Naomh Abán registered their first score. Lauren Linehan and two points from the boot of Farmer had the score at Aghada 0-6 Naomh Abán 0-1 after twenty minutes play. Naomh Abán hit the next two scores with Farmer sandwiching one between them for the seaside girls. Then came the turning point in the game when a long run from Eva Rose Boylan put Farmer through to rattle the back of the Naomh Abán net and suddenly it was Aghada 1-8 Naomh Abán 0-3 at the break.

A point from Aileen Mc Grath and one from Naomh Abán were the first two scores of the second half, when the seaside girls were awarded a penalty after Aileen Mc Grath was upended in the Naomh Abán square. Up stepped Farmer to put the ball beyond the Naomh Abán keeper. The seaside girls were now playing a great brand of Ladies Football and were now dominating in all quarters. Amanda Bennett, Farmer (2) were the next three scorers for the seaside girls. Then came the sucker punches for Naomh Abán with Mc Grath rattling the back of the net quickly followed by another major from the boot of Clare Walsh after she followed up a long delivery from Farmer and was right on que to put the ball beyond the keeper. A point each from Moran and Walsh finished the scoring for the seaside girls. To be fair to Naomh Abán they never gave up and got a goal of their own but it was too little too late as the seaside girls ran out winners on a score line of Aghada 4-15 Naomh Abán 1-5 and in the process the seaside girls created history as it was the first Adult A County Title won by the club.

After the game the cup was presented to the victorious Aghada captain Emma Farmer by register of the County Board Barry Moran. Barry said it was a great day for the Aghada club by creating history and he was very proud and honoured to be handing the cup over to Emma.

Emma thanked her teammates for the hard work they had done all year and that it had paid off today with victory over Naomh Abán. She thanked the management and backroom team for all their work as well in the preparation of the team. Last but not least she thanked Naomh Abán for the game and told them to come back stronger next year and to have a big say in where the cup resides in 2018.

So now it’s back to the training field during the week as we prepare for the Munster Junior Club Semi Final where we meet the winners of the champions of Tipperary / Clare due to be played on the weekend of the 7th / 8th October, time and venue TBC.

Panel: S. Walsh, S. Phelan, B. Wall, K. O’Connell, C. Walsh, R. Phelan, K. O’Farrell, S. O’Driscoll, S. Leahy, L. Mc Allister, E. Farmer, A. Bennett, C. Moran, L. Linehan, Aileen Mc Grath, K.

Camogie success for Jen
On Sunday last in Croke Park Cork Senior Camogie team regained the Duffy Cup following an exciting one point win over Kilkenny while in the Intermediate final Cork & Meath must meet again.
Our own Jennifer Barry played with the Intermediates and was part of the successful winning senior panel. This is a first time in our club history that a player from Bride Rovers has won an All-Ireland Senior medal and we are so proud of Jen. While Jen saw no action with the seniors on Sunday she was very prominient with Cork throughout the league and is a vital member of the Senior panel.

Jen Barry had an excellent game with the Intermediates as Cork avoided the heartbreak of defeat in the All-Ireland Intermediate Camogie final for a second successive year. The sides will do battle on 1 October for the Jack McGrath Cup after a tight and cagey contest finished level at 1-9 apiece.
This time around, Cork let the victory slip, missing a number of chances to seal victory in a low-scoring second-half. They failed to put away the 2012 All-Ireland junior champions, with Keeva McCarrhy missing a couple of tricky frees in the final 10 minutes. A Jane Dolan free in the 62nd minute – her fifth of the day – secured another day out for Meath as they made full advantage of Cork being reduced to 14 players. Katelyn Hickey was dismissed on a second yellow card a minute earlier and Meath found just enough space to engineer a free, which Dolan duly converted.
Each member of Cork’s potent full-forward line were off the mark inside the opening 10 minutes, but three frees from Jane Dolan had Meath within a point entering first-half stoppage-time. Cork were chasing their first title at this grade since 2006, having lost to Kilkenny by a point in last year’s decider.
Meath had a perfect response after the break. They hit 1-1 two minutes after the restart, including a fine goal from Kristina Troy. The quality of the game dropped in the final quarter as both sides made a number of unforced errors. Then Hickey hit the net in the 31st minute to give Cork a four-point cushion at the break, 1-7 to 0-6. Cork edged back in front through Fionola Neville and Rachel O’Shea, but a brace of frees from Dolan saved the day for the Royals.

Scorers for Cork: Keeva McCarthy 0-3 (0-2f) and Rachel O’Shea 0-3 (0-1f), Fionola Neville, Linda Collins and Caroline Sugrue 0-1 each.

Scorers for Meath: Jane Dolan 0-5 (0-5f), Kiristina Troy 1-0, Sinead Hackett 0-2, Aoife Minogue 0-1 (0-1f), Amy Gaffney 0-1.


All Ireland U14 Camogie Blitz
Cork U14 Camogie team lost out to Kilkenny in the final of the All-Ireland u14 Camogie Blitz which took place in Dublin last Saturday. Shauna Hayes from Bride Rovers was part of the Cork team and captained the side in a group game against Laois. Well done to Shauna who certainly has a bright future ahead with Cork Camogie.

U12 C County Football Semi Final Bride Rovers 3-8 vs Roscarberry 2-9.

We secured our place in the County U12s semi final for a second year running on a very wild & windy Balinora pitch on Saturday September 9th. While we retained a lot of possession in the first half we failed to convert sufficiently, allowing Roscarberry a 4pt lead going in to half time. From the start of the second half our players settled and adjusted to the windy conditions, keeping the balls low and hand passing more accurate. The girls fought tirelessly in what seemed an unending battle, but with plenty coaching and encouragement from the mentors and side line we finished 2 points ahead due to the determination of our backs and the accuracy of our scorers.
Panel: E Diggan ,O Nagle, R Walsh, N Parle , A Mc Carthy, C Murphy, Abby Hoare, Lily Murray, C Morrison (3-2), A O Connell (0-1), Ava Barry (0-5) ,R Broderick, E Barry, M O Connell (Cpt) , S Buckley,

Mentors : P Barry, T Broderick, M O Connell

On Monday evening, Bride Rovers U15 camogie team travelled to Erin’s Own to play the home side in the East Cork Plate Final. From the get go, this was a very close encounter with both teams trading scores to make for a very exciting match. At half time, Bride Rovers led 2-3 to 2-1, our scores coming from Shauna Hayes, Abby Keating, Grace Dorgan and Caoimhe Hazelwood. The second half played out pretty much like the first but Erin’s Own clawed back the deficit to make the game level at full time 4-3 apiece, our scores coming from Shauna and Caoimhe Barry. Despite the dusky evening, the teams were obliged to play five minutes aside extra time. Bride Rovers got off to a great start with an early and impressive goal from Chloe Murphy followed by a point from Shauna. However, the home side scored a goal and three points, and won by a narrow margin of just two points. Well done to both teams on a competitive and spirited performance.
Team: Abbie Hoare, Alice Murray,Alannah Broderick, Niamh O’Sullivan, Caoimhe O’Sullivan, Chloe Murphy (1-0), Rebecca Walsh, Shauna Hayes (1-3), Caoimhe Hazelwood (0-1), Kate Larkin, Abby Keating (1-0), Caoimhe Barry (1-0), Grace Dorgan (1-0), Ciara O’Flynn, Cliona Edmunds, Mollie O’Connell, Cliona Edmunds.

U-16’s Make It Back To County Final… Aghada v O’Donovan Rossa in Brinny 09.09.17
The U-16’s are an hour away from retaining their Cork County U-16 A Title after defeating O’Donovan Rossa in the Semi Final on Saturday evening last in Brinny. This was a great all round team performance by each and every girl.

The seaside girls really thundered into the game and took it to O’Donovan Rossa from the off. Katie Terry kicked the first point of the game for the seaside girls after some wonderful play out the field between Eva Rose Boylan and Aine Mc Grath to set her up. Mary Leahy was to get the next score before Lauren Linehan rattled the back of the net after a great ball through from Kaithlin Smith. This was quickly followed by another goal from Linehan and a point from Rachel Leahy to leave the score after the first quarter Aghada 2-5 O’Donovan Rossa 0-0. O’Donovan Rossa settled into the game and kicked three points on the trot before Lauren Mc Allister and Mary Leahy got the last two of the half to leave the halftime score Aghada 2-7 O’Donovan Rossa 0-3.
Mary Leahy opened the second half where she left off in the first with a well taken point. O’Donovan Rossa rallied again and got two points of their own before Clare Walsh got the seaside girls third goal to put the game beyond O’Donovan Rossa’s reach. To be fair they never gave up the chase but our girls were equal to the task and stood up to what they had to throw at them. In the end the seaside girls ran out winners on a score line of Aghada 3-11 O’Donovan Rossa 1-7. We now go on and meet the winners of Glanmire and Kinsale in the County Final. Date, time and venue TBC.
Panel: O. Dzijak, N. Bennett, B. Wall, E. Cronin, S. Mc Allister, K. O’Farrell, C. Walsh, E.R. Boylan, A. Mc Grath, R. Leahy, M. Leahy, L. Linehan, K. Smith, L. Mc Allister, K. Terry, M. Culligan, C. Ryan, M. Ryan, S. Geary, M. Moran, A. Rose, A. Burke, R. Barry, K. Stafford, H. Whalley, M. Murphy.
County Junior A Final
The County Junior A Final has been fixed for Saturday next at 6pm in Mayfield v Naomh Aban. This is a huge game for the girls and for the club. It is the first time we have reached an adult A competition final. We would appeal for as many people as possible to make the effort to attend this game to support the girls in their quest for County Honours. We would like the wish the players and management the very best of luck on Saturday evening.
