Club Notes 7th October

Junior B Hurlers
Our Junior B Hurlers were knocked out of the County Championship at the quarter final stage last Sunday morning in Askeaton.
They encountered a very strong Tournafulla team who won out on a scoreline of 4 – 12 to 0 – 5.
The City Final against Kildimo-Pallaskenry is due to be played in the coming weeks.

Minor Football
Kilpeacon took on Caherconlish in the East A Minor Football Final in Knocklong on 2nd October 2019 under lights.
Having met Caherconlish twice already this year, the first game was a draw 1 – 08 apiece and second game had to be abandoned in second half due to a serious injury, this was once again expected to be a very tight affair. With the Knocklong field in immaculate condition and top referee Johnny Murphy officiating in the calm before storm Lorenzo the scene was set.
Both teams threatened in the first 5 mins with some near misses but it was Kilpeacon who got on the score board early with some fine scores. Led by a superb defence backboned by John Bourke in goals with Patrick Dolphin at full back and Eoghan O’Connor & Colm O’Riordan in the corners there were no easy path through to goal for Caherconlish and our half back line of Patrick Byrne, ably assisted by Christopher Shanahan and Captain Colin Haigney were the launch pad for our attacking and very mobile forward players.
Darragh O’Keeffe (0-3) and Michael Martin never stopped working in midfield and their distribution into the half forward line led through the middle by Sam Riordan (0-6), with Rory Hannon and Callum Hedderman (1-2) on the wings who set up our full forward line for some superb scores with Jack Dalton (2-1), Scott McEvoy (1-0) and Aidan Walker (1-1), there was never any doubt after half time that the cup was coming back.
This is our second year in a row winning the East A, and we now look forward to meeting Adare in the County Semi Final.
Panel on the night – John Bourke, Colm O’Riordan, Patrick Dolphin, Eoghan O’Connor, Christopher Shanahan, Patrick Byrne, Colin Haigney, Darragh O’Keeffe, Michael Martin, Rory Hannon, Sam Riordan, Caillum Hedderman, Aidan Walker, Jack Dalton, Scott McEvoy, Ciaran Kennedy, Cian Enright, Darragh Hogan, Kyle Tierney, Padraig Byrnes, Eoin Hennessy, John O’Donnell, Ruairi Cahill, James Hickey, Aaron Hickey, Michael Clifford, Richard Murphy, Killian Scanlon.
The County Semi Final against Adare is on Monday 7th October at 7.30pm in Mick Neville Park Rathkeale. All support welcome.
