Cork Senior Ladies Football:
Best wishes to Katie and Sarah and the Cork Senior Ladies Football team who play Meath in the first round of the All Ireland Senior LGFA Championship on Saturday 10th July in Birr at 2pm. Best of luck from all at Bride Rovers.
Saturday saw our under 12 camogie team hit the road again with a trip to Banteer.
Fourteen girls represented the club on our trip into Duhallow on what turned out
to be a great afternoon both weather wise and sporting wise.
Our hosts started the game much quicker than us and the scoreboard reflected
that by the first water break, however some wise words and astute moves from our manager Joyce soon
had the girls steadying the ship.
From the beginning of the second half until the referee called for the ball the girls forced the play and battled their way back
into the game and onto the scoreboard, indeed earning a draw in a really entertaining game which in truth no team deserved
to lose, with the real winner being camogie.
Well done and thanks to all the girls and parents
Our third football match of the season saw us take on Glanmire in Buck Learys Cross on Monday night.
Glanmire we’re keen to show us who was boss and got a few nice goals in the first fifteen minutes.Rovers struggled to get organized however they dominated the next fifteen minutes even though the score board didn’t represent there efforts.
Serious chats were had at halftime and we went out fighting. Glanmire didn’t lie down and continued there dominance as well as making there lead higher.
Our girls battled hard in the last fifteen but Glanmire kept bringing the game to to them and the scores to match.
Hard luck to our Rovers girls on this occasion and well done to Glanmire.
Final score 6-13 to 1-10

Well done to our U8 Camogie team who played Sars at home on Saturday last in a camogie blitz. The girls were divided into 3 teams of 5 and played 3 games. It was a great performance by all girls on the day and all the girls showed some fantastic camogie skills. This was our third blitz in 3 weeks and all the girls have improved their skills over the last few weeks. We look forward to training in July and more games in August. Thanks to all mentors and parents who helped out on the day and made this possible for the girls. Thanks also to Sars for travelling down to Rathcormac. Well done girls!
