Bride Rovers Ladies’ Football Notes w/e 25-9-16

On Monday evening, Bride Rovers u14 ladies footballers took on Glanmire B at home in the first round of the East Cork Championship. The teams had met in a closely fought contest in the Plate Final earlier in the year so they were expecting another competitive game. However, from the outset, Bride Rovers took control of the game and notched up a very strong lead in the first half. In fairness to Glanmire B, they never gave up but the gap between the teams on the day was too big and the home side ran out decisive winners. They now proceed to the semi final, details to be confirmed. Best wishes to Amy Kennedy for a speedy recovery, Amy was unable to play due to injury.
Team: Katie Scollard, Alanna Broderick, Sophie Dorgan, Alice Murray, Caoimhe Kielty, Rebecca Walsh, Caoimhe Kielty, Shauna Hayes, Caoimhe Hazelwood, Abby Keating, Chloe Murphy, Ava Hallihan, Kate O’Riordan, Ella Quinlan, Ciara O’Flynn, Sarah Morrison, Niamh O’Sullivan, Leah Hallihan, Lily Murray.

Congrats to Cork Ladies
Congratulations to the Cork Senior Ladies on winning an historic 6th All-Ireland title in a row, these girls are truly magnificent and do not know when they are beaten.


Castlelyons Camogie BlitS

Bride Rovers U9 & U10 Camogie players took part in a blitz on Sunday morning last in Castlelyons. They played 3 games against Dungourney, Eire Óg and Castlelyons and all 14 players present got plenty of games. For most this was their first taste of camogie matches and everyone enjoyed themselves. Well done to the host club for running off an excellent blitz in a very well organised manner. Thank you to Niall Harte & Emma O’Regan for looking after the team.

Congratulations Cork Ladies’ Football Senior Team All Ireland Champions 2016

Cork Ladies Reign Supreme
Cork Ladies 1-07 Dublin Ladies 1-06

Cork Ladies Football team recorded their sixth successive win in a row in the All Ireland Senior final in Croke Park on Sunday last. Hats off to the greatest team in ladies football history winning their 11th title out of the last 12 years
A record crowd of over 34,400 watched the game played in ever changing Irish weather conditions. As the teams ran on to the pitch we were basking in glorious sunshine but then the heavens opened and as the rain pelted down the 30 players on the pitch played in terrible conditions. Cork started well and Orla Finn had a pointed free in the first minute and this was followed by a great point from Midleton’s Orlagh Farmer. Dublin pointed before Finn had another for the Lee side girls. The Cork backs were subjected to a lot of pressure in the final ten minutes of the first half and true to form they stood firm only conceding three more points before the break,. Dublin had a point waved wide much to the amazement of all late in the half, which was to be the main talking point after the match and subject to I am sure to an inquiry but the score at the interval was Dublin 0-04 Cork 0-03.
The sun shone brightly for the second period and what a difference it made to both players and spectators. Dublin increased their lead to two points before the decisive score of the game came from the boot of Cork substitute Rhona NíBluachalla a great well taken goal cutting open the Dublin defence to leave them with a one point advantage. The Lee side Ladies seemed to grow in confidence after this and went on to play some wonderful skilful football. Points from Doireann O’ Sullivan and Finn extended their lead and when O’ Sullivan put over a shot all from 45 mts to give them a four point advantage you just knew it was Corks day.
To their credit Dublin never gave up and were rewarded with a consultation goal in the dying seconds when they scored from the penalty spot. But it was all too little to late as the champions reign Supreme. Great scenes were witnessed as Ciara O’Sullivan lifted the Brendan Martin cup once again. Ciara thanked sponsors SuperValu for their outstanding commitment to Cork Ladies football, the management team led by Ephie Fitzgerald, the county board and all involved with the squad and especially the girls for their dedication and hard work.
Very hard luck to the Dublin Ladies who will rue their missed chances and they had lots of them but great credit to the Cork ladies who kept going to the end and really deserved their victory
A special mention to the East Cork girls who started yesterday Aghada’s Roisín Phelan was rock solid in defence as she kept Dublin’s most dangerous forward quiet. No words are adequate to describe the outstanding performance of Inch Rover’s Annie Walsh until she was withdrawn due to injury and Midleton Belle Orlagh Farmer had a super day playing the best she has ever played in Croke Park. Congratulations to all the other East Cork girls on the panel
Emma Farmer & Hannah Looney (Aghada), Jess O’ Shea (Inch Rovers), Shauna Cronin (Mayfield) and Aishling Hutchings (Fermoy).

A final word should Halk-Eye be available to Ladies Football in Croke Park? Of course it should when the technology is available it should be used. This I believe will require a rule change at congress, an agreement with the operators of the system as it is not presently set up for the size 4 ball, and a financial agreement with the operators but all of this I am sure can and will be done in time for the 2017 championship.

Bride Rovers Ladies’ Football Notes w/e 18-9-16

Senior Ladies in B Final v Fermoy

Our Senior Ladies have qualified to meet Fermoy in the Senior B Final which will take place on Tuesday next 27th September in Castlelyons at 8pm.

Bride Rovers are the current Senior B County Champ[ions having defeated Eire Og in the final in 2015.
In this years campaign we narrowly defeated Fermoy before receiving a walkover from Eire Og to progress to the Senior A quarter-final where we came up against a very good Inch team and were defeated.

This allowed us enter the Senior B Championship whereby we were due to play Eire Og in the semi-final on Thursday last but they were unable to field a team and we received a bye into the final where we will meet local rivals Fermoy who overcame Beara in their semi-final.

This has all the ingredients to be a close fought final. Both teams possess very talented players which will ensure a close contest. We hope you can all make it to Castlelyons on Tuesday to cheer on the Rovers girls who this year are captained by Grace Kearney.

Glanmire Ladies’ Football Notes w/e 18-9-16

Glanmire ladies football club notes

Glanmire ladies created their own bit of history last Sunday when the minors qualified for the East Cork A final, it is the clubs 5th A East Cork final of the year and subsequently all teams qualifying for A county. It was a game played in very wet conditions with no team dominating, Glanmire led by a point at half time but Bride Rovers started the second half strongly and went 5 points up, Glanmire rallied with a number of scores in the last 15 minutes to win by 5-12 to 4-8.The minors now await the winners of Fermoy and Aghada in the final with county competition in October. Good luck to the Cork Seniors on Sunday in Croke Park as they chase another All Ireland, hope all the supporters have a great day.

U12B v St Nicks – 18 September 2016
Glanmire u12Bs prolonged their season today in a thrilling match in the Glen v St Nicks last Sunday. Although it looked like the rain would continue, the rain held off for the whole match and both St Nicks and Glanmire put on a fine display of ladies football. It seemed like it could be Glanmire’s day when our captain Caila Rose Cowhie won the toss.
From the off, Glanmire were up for the game and our full backs Sophie Nolan, Liadin Shepherd, and Anna Cronin defended bravely. Emily McCarthy Vaughan kept a clean sheet for the day and her kick outs were key, finding a Glanmire girl on most of her kick outs. Emma Dennehy, Ciara Rice and Isabelle Brennan held the half back line well and won some great ball. In the midfield, Abigail Thornhill, and Laura O’Brien had a tough battle against a strong St Nicks midfield but held their own bravely.
In the half forward line, Lauren Kelleher, Orla Kiely and Isabelle Kearney ensured a supply of ball went in to the full forward line and chipped in for some fine scores. Amy O’Sullivan, Tara Twomey and Caila Rose Cowhie worked tirelessly on the front line. Isabelle Foong, Rebecca Kelleher, EmmaLyn McCarthy, and Sarah Nyhan performed admirably when called upon, as did Jessica Murphy who kicked over a lovely point. Thanks to all the other girls who turned out, Ellie Twomey, Abbie Marah and Sinead O’Donnell
Glanmire held out to win the game by 1-5 to 0-5 and advance to the semi Fnal of the 12D East Cork Championship
Special thanks to St Nicks for hosting the game and hard luck it was not to be their day.

Aghada Ladies’ Football Notes w/e 18-9-16

Aghada and Kinsale must do it all over again

Aghada 4-4 Kinsale 1-13

Aghada and Kinsale played out a thrilling draw in the Cork County U16 “A” Final on Saturday last in Mayfield. It was end to end stuff in difficult underfoot conditions. Kinsale were a big strong physical size and it took the Aghada girls time to settle into the game. Kinsale opened the scoring after the first minute with a well taken point. Mary Leahy responded two minutes later when she rattled the back of the Kinsale net. It was the first of Mary’s four goals as she ran the show. Kinsale hit a purple patch of their own then and had six unanswered scores to leave the score after twenty seven minutes Aghada 1-0 Kinsale 1-6 but up popped Mary again to bag her second goal as she was beginning to become a thorn in Kinsale’s side. Kinsale got one more score before the short whistle to leave the halftime score Aghada 2-0 Kinsale 1-7.
After a poor enough opening from the seaside girls they were still in the game. Aghada got the first score of the second half from the boot of Lauren Mc Allister but Kinsale came again and got the next three points in a row. Other teams might have let their heads drop at this stage but not these Aghada girls they found the heart and belief to drive on and not to let this game slip away from them. Olivia Dzjack in goals and all Aghada’s six backs rose their game and started to move the ball with a bit more ease. Up popped Mary Leahy for her third goal quickly followed by a point from Lauren Linehan and all of a sudden there was only point in the game with ten minutes to play. Aghada were now starting to break down the Kinsale defence but were reduced to fourteen players when Clare Walsh was sin binned.
When Aghada were reduced to fourteen players the girls really lifted their game and Mary was to get her fourth goal to put Aghada two points clear with ten to play. It was frantic stuff from here to the end. Kinsale got the next two scores to level up the match and with the clock heading for sixty minutes Kinsale took the lead but there was one more kick left in the seaside girls and up popped the player of the match Mary Leahy to level the game, to leave the final score Aghada 4-4 Kinsale 1-13. Great credit is due to every girl for the way they dug deep when other teams might have dropped their heads. If they can bring this type of attitude to the replay we will have a different ball game. We have to mention Mary Leahy for the outstanding performance she gave in this game. It was worth the entry fee alone. Replay date and time TBC.
. Panel: O. Dzjack, K.O’Farrell, B. Wall, A. Quinn, S. Mc Allister, C. Walsh, A. Hickman, ER. Boylan, S. Walsh, L. Linehan, L. Mc Allister, Aileen Mc Grath, M. Leahy, K. O’Keeffe, M. Culligan, Aine Mc Grath, E. Cronin, A. Rose, M. Moran and K. Terry.

U-12 Girls reach County Final

Our U-12’s have also qualified for the county final where they will meet Donoughmore
This game is likely to be played on Oct First and with the Junior Ladies also down to play the replay of the county league final v Bishopstown that weekend we have plenty to look forward to .

All Ireland Ladies Final

Aghada have 3 girls involved with the Cork Senior ladies football team this year.
We are running a bus to the All Ireland Ladies Final next weekend.
There is still space on the bus for those who wish to travel to support Roisin, Emma and Hannah in the All Ireland Final. Please contact Vera Terry, Aine Cronin or Deirdre Culligan for more information. We would like to wish the three girls and their team mates the very best of luck on Sunday and hopefully Cork can retain the Brendan Martin Cup.
