Hi folks, I hope the recent weather has not dampened the spirits and you all had a very enjoyable St Patrick’s bank holiday weekend. Like last year we will be doing a short summary of the many league games we will be playing in the various age groups, while come championship a lot more detail will be made available in the reports. The official spring equinox took place on March the 20th and heralds the beginning of the spring season and with the clocks going forward this Saturday night the grand auld stretch will bring a lot more activity midweek to Rostellan. Is it time to consider spring cleaning ah yes momentum is building for the rush of summer!

U18 Hurling league Bride Rovers 1-14 Aghada 0-17 We travelled to Rathcormac on Friday afternoon, St Patrick’s day and came away with a share of the spoils, albeit a bit controversially as many people in attendance had us 2 points up but as we know the only tally that counts is the referees and coming away from Rathcormac with a result is not easy at the best of times. We were in control for much of the game and led at half time 10 points to 7 mainly due to the unerring accuracy of Oscar Slye from placed balls who certainly had the eye of the tiger in a 100% return. Robert Dean was a commanding figure at center back reading the play well and driving the team forward. James Motherway pointed from play and James Hurley struck 2 but it was Noah Devoy who proved to be the real thorn in the Rovers defense as the center forward swept right and left to hit a host of glorious scores. Fionn O’ Callaghan and Ronan Devoy were rock steady in the full back line before we were undone by a rather fortuitous goal from a free that ended up in the back of our net to give the home side a lifeline late on. We still thought we had done enough but it wasn’t to be on this occasion although the performance still brought plenty of optimism.

U14 hurling league Cobh 6-5 Aghada 9-11 Our u14 hurlers followed up the recent football league success where they scored 5-11 away to Kilworth/Araglen in a one-sided encounter to come out victorious once again in another high scoring performance this time hitting the net nine times in difficult conditions away to our seaside neighbours Cobh on St Patrick’s day morning. Both teams coped admirably in the testing underfoot conditions to deliver a game that was high on entertainment and excitement sharing 15 goals in the process. Full forward Eoghan O’ Shea was the first to capitalize on a high delivery to crack home goal number 1 as goalmouth scrambles from both sides were producing great excitement. Matthew Condon hit a brace with other goals coming from Dara O’ Brien, Cathal Lowney and Shay Rooney while John Dorney introduced at half time was the one to take home the match sliotar scoring a spectacular second half hat trick. All in all, this was a superb panel performance that will please the management no end as the work rate was top notch from start to finish. Team & scorers Rian O’ Brien Higgins, Dylan Kearns, Rossa White, Eoin O’ Donoghue, Jake Morrissey, Kaylan Cunningham, Cormac Cashman, Donncha Walsh, Conor Charles, Matthew Condon 2-6 0-3f, Shay Rooney 1-2, Robbie Oosthuizen 0-1, Harry Burgoyne, Eoghan O’ Shea 1-0, Dara O’ Brien 1-1 subs used John Dorney 3-1, Finbarr Alcock, Tim O’ Hanlon, Marcus O’ Loughlin, Eoghan Kirrane, Sam Ahern, Cathal Lowney 1-0.

U16 Football League Aghada 0-3 Douglas 1-5 Truly awful weather proved difficult for the teams to produce good football and led to a low scoring encounter where a goal for either side was going to be major and unfortunately for us it was Douglas who made the breakthrough. All our scores came from the boot of Cian Moore but alas this game will not live long in the memory bank as the conditions mitigated against both teams. We did fare a lot better when they opened their campaign with a victory in a challenge match earlier in the week, winning well in a high scoring encounter under the Rostellan lights against Kiltha Óg. This team are under the watchful eyes this year of manager Tim Murphy and selectors Paul Walsh and Matty Leahy who are preparing diligently and letting no stone unturned as they prepare the team for the road ahead and we wish them all the very best of luck for the rest of the season.

Middle Eastern games Cathal McAllister made it back safely from Abu Dhabi while being a referee in the Middle eastern games and when the tournament was coming to its conclusion, Cathal had the honour of throwing in the sliotar for the hurling final that took place after midnight at 12.55 in the morning yes you read that right 12.55am maybe we have more time to finish our games programme than we think!
