Club Notes 31-01-2019
Our U21 footballers were the first team into action for 2019, when they welcomed Ballingeary to Leap on Sunday 20th in a challenge game. On a decent surface, and with bright sunshine throughout, it was the Kilmac’s that took the initiative and playing some excellent football in the opening half lead by 2-7 to 2-5 at the short whistle. The game continued in a similar vain in the 2nd half and the Kilmacs edged the game slightly on fitness and managed to run out winners by 3-13 to 3-9. The panel on the day was as follows: Eoghan Burns, Kieran Grace, Peter Hayes, Odhran Kerrisk, Darren Whooley, Jack Connolly, Keith Whelton, Ian Jennings, Ronan Maddix, Jamie Ronan, Ellis Wilson, Tiernan Kerrisk, Dara Tobin, Niall Bowkett, Adrian Gore, Dan Lynch.
The Club Dinner Dance takes place this Saturday 2nd February in The Celtic Ross Hotel. On the night the Junior A Footballers will be honoured for their historic double in Carbery football. Having achieved the same feat in 2017, this means that the team has gone down in history and created more by reaching the club’s first ever County Final in this grade. Special guest on the night, will be Paudie Palmer of C103 and Kieran Cooke provides the musical entertainment.

Damien Gore also made his National Football League debut for the Cork Senior Footballers as they drew away to Fermanagh on a score-line of Cork 1-5 Fermanagh 0-8. Damien continued his good form, and was once again on the scoresheet, kicking Cork’s opening score of the game. Again everyone associated with the club is delighted by his continuing involvement with the County Seniors and wishes him all the best for the remainder of Cork’s league campaign. Their next game is on Sunday 3rd, when they welcome Kildare to Pairc Ui Chaoimh for a 1pm throw in.
