Cobh GAA Notes – 24th September



Juniors Lose to Midleton. Cobh 0-04 Midleton -10. Our Junior hurlers went out of the championship on Wednesday last when losing out to a fancied Midleton side in a close game. Defences were on top throughout the match and scores were at a premium as the game was played in very poor weather. Cobh trailed by 5pts to 2 at the break and brought this back to 5pts to 4 shortly after half-time but a knee injury suffered by Brendan Meaney required a long stoppage in play and on the resummption the lads could not get back to the pace they had set in the early part of the half. Midleton tagged on a few points near the end to see themselves safely over the line but not before they had received a serious test from Cobh. Well done to all involved and best wishes to Buzz in his recovery. Team: Pat Looney, Mark ronan, Brendan Kearney, Declan O’Connell, Peter Cambridge, Darragh O’Keeffe, Brian O’Connell, Lee McDermott, Trevor Byrne, Martin Coffey, Darren Tallon, Kevin Doody, Brendan Meaney, Terry Anderson, Dave McCarthy. Subs: Don Ryan, John Mackessy, Kevin McSweeney, Damien Byrne.

Cobh qualified for the Minor A East Region Football decider after an impressive display against Killeagh in Castlemartyr last Sunday by 0-18 to 1-7. Six points from play from Eoin Hastings helped in no small measure to progression with fine contributions from Adrian O’Hanlon, Paul Buckley, Darragh O’Keeffe, Jack Ronan and Darragh Kelleher.
The road began on Monday July 4th in a first round game versus Kilmurry which produced an 11 point win followed up by a second round game against Youghal which tested the mettle of the squad before a couple of Shane Hallahan scores put the tie beyond doubt. A hurling break followed until the conclusion of the final league game against St. Finbarrs which saw Cobh finish top of 8 teams. Quarter Final of the championship was next up with Fr. O’Neills providing the opposition in Ballymacoda on Tuesday September 13th. A hard fought win by 1-8 to 2-4 saw Cobh count the cost with injuries to Cian Spriggs and Aidan O’Rourke, stalwarts of Cobh teams throughout the year. Kevin Mc Sweeney, Jamie Moynihan, Danny Keating, Tony O’Donovan and Sam Stapleton leading the way for the Cobh lads. The road to the final, has as always in any journey, been full of ups and downs but so far so good as this talented team take to the championship field once again late into September. Keep an eye out on Cobh GAA’s facebook page for updates regarding a fixture for the final. Hoping a large Cobh crowd will be in attendance for this big game.
