Cobh Gaa Notes 26th Sept



Minors Win East Cork Football Championship: Cobh 1-17 St. Catherine’s 0-05. The Cobh minor footballers went some way to making up for the disappointment of losing the hurling final by annexing the ‘B’ football championship with a facile win over St. Catherine’s at Lisgoold on Saturday last. Learning from the hurling final, the Cobh team were very efficient in their play, never relented with the pressure they applied to their opponents and took nothing for granted this time around. Cobh were much the stronger outfit and with youngsters John Flanagan, Kieran Histon and Luke Curran giving an exhibition, aided by the slightly ‘older’ Jamie Moynihan, Cian Spriggs and Mark Foley, they took control of the game early on and powered home to victory in the second half. Well done to the players and management on this fine win and best of luck in the County Championship.

Cobh Juvenile Hurling Blitz – Sponsored by Paddy Histon Sat 25th Sept.
We enjoyed another feast of hurling on Saturday last as the U10’s and U8’s participated in their blitzes in Cobh. The U10’s came out on top in a competition involving Ballincollig, Fr. O’Neill’s and Passage West, while the U8’s did very well, but were ultimately unsuccessful, in a group with Carrigtwohill, Ballinhassig and eventual winners Kiltha Óg. Well done to both teams and a big thank you to all who helped to organise the event.
