Successful Weekend for Cork Ladies Football

Last weekend was a busy one for Cork Ladies ‘Football with three teams out in championship and all recording great wins.

U-21Munster Championship

On Friday night the U 21 ladies travelled to Glenflesk to take on Kerry in their home patch. Kerry already had a win under their belts but this was the Cork girls’ first outing in 2019. The Cork side was full of running right from the start and showed why they were Minor All Ireland champions 3 years ago as they notched up some lovely scores finishing up with a total of 6 12 to 2 04

U 14 All Ireland Semi Final

On Saturday it was the turn of the U 14 girls who took on Kildare in the All Ireland Semi final and again the Cork side were completely dominant as they powered their way past the Lenster champions on a score line 5 14 to 3 05. The All Ireland final takes place on Saturday next against Galway at a midlands venue and hopefully the Cork young guns can regain the U 14 title last won by the rebel county in 2013.

Munster Senior Final

On Sunday evening the senior Ladies took to the field in Dungarvan in the Munster final against Waterford. The sides had already met earlier in the championship and Cork were well on top on that occasion. On a bright and very windy Sunday evening Waterford played with the wind in the first half and raced into an early lead with some very well taken scores but slowly Cork pegged them back and a goal from ace forward Saoirse Noonan edged them in from at the interval. The Lee siders completely dominated the second period and a second goal from Noonan put this one beyond doubt as the Cork ladies retained their Munster crown and go on now to compete in the All Ireland series

Looking forward to next weekend

On Friday night next the U 21 Ladies take on Limerick in the Munster semi final at Mallow GAA complex at 730pm and hopefully they will progress to the Munster final the following weekend.

On Saturday the U 14 girls make the long trip to Banagher in Co Offaly for the U 14 All Ireland final. The format of this competition changed this year but the Cork squad has improved with every outing and hopefully they will regain the all Ireland title last won in 2013. This game is timed for 1 pm

Best of luck to all the girls and management team especially the East Cork contingent

Bride Rovers Ladies Football News 23/19


Our senior ladies footballers finished off a fine league campaign with a good win against Aghada last Sunday at home in Rathcormac. It was a blustery day and we played against the wind in the first half. From the throw in it was obvious to all present that we were stronger than Aghada but we found it difficult to put that advantage onto the scoreboard. We settled before half time and went in at the short whistle leading by 2 points on a score line of 1-07 to 1-05.

 We started the second half brightly but some very poor passing and decision making kept Aghada in the game until the final 15 minutes. Finally we found our rhythm and ran out convincing winners on a score line of 3-14 to 1-06. This was a very good league campaign for our senior ladies football team. If we had won our drawn game against Eire Og we could now be in the league final. We hope that they drive on now and carry their league form into the championship. Good look to all of the girls doing exams in the coming weeks. The scorers on the day were: 

Katie Quirke 1-03, Grace Kearney 1-02, Niamh Barry 1-02, Grace Culloty 0-05, Leah Hallihan 0-01, Jennifer Barry 0-01.

On Sunday morning last our u12 girls concluded their league fixtures with another impressive win against a strong Youghal team on a scoreline ofBride Rovers 11.5 Youghal 6.3Having gone through the league unbeaten we look forward to the semis in 2 weeks time.Well done to all girls that completed in the Cork city sports last week 

Congratulations to Ciara, Lily, Abbie and Ava on their win against Sligo in the Cork U14 A All Ireland quarter final. Well done girls. 

U10 Girls Football : Thursday May 30th, Venue Lisgoold

On a blustery day in Lisgoold our girls turned out another fine performance. Eadaoin  Delaney was captain for the day and elected to play against the wind. Bride Rovers started at a frantic pace laying siege to the Lisgoold goal mouth. After may near misses the girls started working the ball into a dynamic full forward line who quickly racked up the goals and points. Aided by the half forward line and midfielders we hit the break with 5 – 4 to no reply.

Second half would be more  difficult with a full team change from 1 to 15 and an increasing wind. Our tackling , blocking and fighting was immense. Some of the movement and passing through the middle of the park was a sight to behold. Unfortunately for Lisgood although they battled to the end were unable to register a score as our full backs were in an unforgiving mood. We ran out comfortable winners with a positive score of 7 – 7.  That’s a score every 3 minutes which at this grade and age is once again a great achievement.

Many thanks to the ref on the day Grace Culloty who let the game flow seamlessly which ensured the enjoyment for all involved.
