Team News


We had an excellent turn out on Sunday and we were delighted with the
sun shining and
the hard working girls, this week we worked on their team work and
also on their ground

We shall be introducing the new Go-Game rules for Under 10's over the
coming weeks and
we are hoping to get in some challenge matches. We have some new
members to the panel
so we are delighted with the progress of the girls

TRAINING: - SUNDAY @ 12.15PM TO 1.15PM, all girls to bring their hurley, helmet,
shin guards and their own bottle of water (health & Safety reasons).

One navy jacket left on the field last week it can be collected from
the Container before or
after training.


Last Sunday, some of our Under 12's travelled to Riverstick for an
Indoor Blitz. Rachel, Kailyn,
Shannen, Erin, Sarah, Megan, Clodagh, Alex and Eimear travelled.

We played Ballinhassig, Valley Rovers and Sliabh Rua. The girls gave
great performances in all
three matches and scored 17 goals in total. We had some tough
competition, but with great defending
by Megan, Alex, Rachel and Kailyn, we kept the ball in play and gave
plenty of ball to our Midfield
and forwards, Sarah, Clodagh, Eimear, Erin and Shannen. The pulling
and striking shown by girls
last week was brilliant, let's hope to see the same skill and
determination going forward in all our
matches. Ye did us proud girls.

We have a challenge match organised for next Wednesday in Ballygarvan.
Time to be confirmed.
All details will be given at training on Sunday.

Training continues every Sunday 12.15 – 1.15pm. Please be on time for
training and if you cannot
make it, please text Linda.


Unfortunately our challenge match which was set for last Sunday had to
be cancelled due to
weather. Hopefully we can re-organise this mach as soon as possible.

Training continues on Sunday mornings at 12.15pm to 1.30pm.

Well done to all girls at training on Sunday morning. Even though they
didn't appreciate all the
running!!! Keep up the good work girls as your games are set to start soon.

Well done to Rachel Nevin and Ciara O'Riordan who both did very well
in the Cork B trials on
Saturday, Mahon pitch.


Enniskeane came to Ballincollig on Saturday night for a 6.45pm throw
in. Due to work and
illness we had a very tight panel, however, the 15 girls and guest
player Eimear O Sullivan
gave a great account of themselves.
Ciara Mc in goal was secure and her back line of Aisling Hennigan,
Eimear and Fiona Ryan
worked hard over the hour and marshalled the full forward line well,
half back line Rebecca
O Callaghan, Laura Driscoll & Emer Nolan all had very strong outings,
our first half mid
field pairing of Aisling Walsh and Sarah McCoy worked very hard and
Aisling, who had also
played on Friday night was in excellent form and popped over some nice
points from placed
We moved our 7 forwards around but all girls worked tirelessly over
the hour, Laura O
Leary, Laura O Donoghue, Chloe Hennigan, Noreen Bradley, Meabh McManaman, Sinead
O Sullivan and Claire Delea..... our scores coming from Chloe, Sinead,
Noreen and Claire...
it was our first outing of the season an all the girls are setting
their markers to be on the
starting championship 15 for the summer. Keep up the hard work and we
will hopefully
have a second challenge game next weekend..... Get well to all our
sick players and speedy
recovery to our injured girls.....

We reached the final of the Ballincollig Credit Union Floodlit
tournament with a good win
over Glen Rovers on Friday last. The first half was very even but the
girls upped the intensity
in the second half and put the game out of reach with 10 minutes to
go. Welcome aboard to
Sinead who capped her debut with a classy goal which was added to be
goals from Meabh
and Ashley. We need to say "well done" to our defence too which has
only conceded one
goal in the three matches to date in the tournament.

The final is now to be played on Friday 25th and not the 18th as
originally planned. We are

due to face Douglas for the early season bragging rights. Please come
