Our Junior B Footballers got their City Championship campaign underway with a 1 – 11 to 0 – 10 win over Ballinacurra Gaels last Wednesday night. Unfortunately the news wasn’t as good for our Junior A Hurlers who were beaten 2 – 10 to 0 – 13 by Ballybrown in Kildimo on Saturday night thus effectively ending our interest in this years championship.
This was a great battling performance by our lads and a few breaks just didn’t go our way.
Our Minor Footballers made the trip to Glenroe last Thursday to play Ballylanders in the third round of the 13 a side football championship minus several key players. Unfortunately, we suffered a debatable black card decision against us in the first 15 minutes and as we had no subs, we were reduced to twelve players. Our lads fought hard to the bitter end as we were eventually overrun by the thirteen men of Ballylanders by a score of 7 – 9 to 2 – 13.
Team: Evan Keogh; Páraic O’Neill, Tomás Connolly; Micheál Fitzgerald, Cian Leahy, Donnacha Connolly; Damien Kearney, Michael Bateman; Paul Collins, Barry Fitzgibbon, Jake Loughran; Shane O’Connell, Thomas Roche.
UNDER 16 HURLERS:
Tonight , our U16 hurlers will be playing a home game V’s Granagh Ballingarry with a throw in time of 19:15pm .
Again it would be great to have some home support tonight.
UNDER 14 HURLERS:
Kilpeacon U14 Hurling , playing in division 1 and sitting in second position on the table with 3 games remaining will be playing table toppers , County feile Champions and our near neighbours Mungret this coming Wednesday evening.
Having already shown that they are a match for any team in this division and with some great performances and results recently V’s NAP , Adare & Ahane , this game will surely test these guys but also promises to be a very keenly contested match where passions will rise high throughout the game.
The match throws in at 8pm in Mungret and it would be great to get a big support from the Crecora Manister and Fedamore GAA clubs out to support this Kilpeacon team.
Remember these players could be the backbone of our Senior Club team in 5-6 years time and I know all these players aspire to playing senior Club championship in the future so we need to get behind these guys.
Hope to see as many of you as possible on Wednesday evening , if you can wear your Green and gold colours and lets make some noise in Mungret for these players.
UNDER 14 FOOTBALLERS:
Last Wednesday, our under 14s continued their good run with 8 – 9 to 2 – 4 win over Deel Rangers.
Next Wednesday, our U14 Football team will travel to Askeaton for their last game of the championship and following some fine displays throughout the season they are very close to another county semi final. This game will be a repeat of the feile county semi final where Kilpeacon prevailed by a single score so this promises to again be a highly entertaining and close fought game. Throw in time of 19:15pm.
UNDER 12 HURLERS:
Our U12 Hurlers played in the Gaelic grounds on Saturday and came up against some very strong teams however they accounted very well for themselves , winning their first match V Cratloe and narrowly losing out in their other 2 games . They then got a tour of the home dressing rooms and had a Q&A session with Paudie O Brien , County player from Kilmallock . Well done to all players and coaches.
Best of luck to the Limerick under 21 hurlers who play Clare in the Munster final in Cusack Park in Ennis this Thursday night at 7.30pm. Commiserations to the minor hurlers who lost out to Galway in the All-Ireland quarter final by 1 – 14 to 0 – 13.
