Junior A Football Championship Aghada 2-2 v Castlelyons 0-13; 19/05/2017 in Ballinacurra
Our Junior A footballers bowed of this year’s championship when they were outplayed by a superior Castlelyons outfit last Friday night in Ballinacurra. Aghada had the best possible start when Kevin O’Hanlon raised a green flag in under 30 seconds. Charlie Terry added a point on 4 minutes, but for the majority of the half Castleyons would be dominant. They kicked 8 points and missed as many again. Conal Rabbitt did lift the siege with a second Aghada goal coming up to half time and at the short whistle, despite being second best, there was only a point between the sides – Aghada 2-1 v Castlelyons 0-8. Unfortunately the pattern of the game didn’t change didn’t change after the restart with Castlelyons pointing in the opening minute. Further points followed on 16, 18, 24 and 27 minutes. It would be the 59th minute before Aghada registered any score in the second half, when they had the final point of the game. So it’s Castlelyons who advance to the next round winning by 5 points on the night.
Aghada Team – Ciaran O’Shea, Kane Looney, Billy Hennessy, Aaron Butler, Sam Burgess, Kieran O’Connor, Mark Healy, Marcus Leahy, John O’Connor, Conal Rabbitt, Jordan Ryan, Charlie Terry, Cian O’Driscoll, Daniel Creedon, Kevin O’Hanlon.

Senior football league Division 3 Aghada 1-14 v Rockchapel 1-16; 20/5/2017 in Rockchapel
Our senior footballers made the long journey to Rockchapel last Saturday evening to play the next round of their league. A lively game of football saw both sides kick 1-7 before the break. The Aghada goal came from Shane Bennett, and looked like giving Aghada the edge at half time, however Rockchapel struck for a goal of their own just before the break. On resumption the game continued to flow from end to end. Cian Fleming finished with 8 points, hitting 4 in each half. Overall however it was the home side that raised the more white flags in the 2nd half and despite a good enough performance, Aghada had to face the long road home without any league points to show for their efforts.
