Cork County PIHC quarter-final – Kilworth V Carrigaline on Saturday September 14th 2019 @ 4:00pm in Watergrasshill

Finally it’s back! On Saturday afternoon we look forward to making the trip to Watergrasshill for the return of the hurling championship as Kilworth prepare to take on Carrigaline in the quarter-final of this year’s Cork County Premier Intermediate Hurling Championship. We’ve had a long wait for this one, but fingers crossed it will all be worth it! Carrigaline have enjoyed two great games heading into next Saturday with wins over Youghal in round two and Aghada in round three last Saturday. They are sure to be high on confidence heading into their third championship weekend in a row and they will provide a strong challenge to our intermediate hurling panel. But there is no doubt our lads have been preparing long and hard for this one and they will hope to have the edge over their opponents on Saturday evening when the ball is thrown in at 4:00pm.

On behalf of the club we would like to wish the very best of luck to the management and backroom team of Shane Tobin, John Hegarty, Damien McNamara, Aidan Kenny, Seán Carey, Will Twomey and Darren Kenny along with the panel of players on Saturday. Everyone will have to play their part if we are to cross that winning line – the starting fifteen, the subs and indeed the supporters. It’s important we turn out in large numbers this weekend to get behind our team. Be sure to spread the word and wear your red and white colours. Let’s show the lads we are behind them every step of the way! As a reminder, the game has a 4:00pm throw-in at Watergrasshill and we look forward to seeing you all there! Let’s do everything we can to book our place in those semis! Kilworth Abú!


Synergy Fermoy Credit Union North Cork JAFC Final – Kilworth 0-07 V Kilshannig 3-16 in Kildorrery on Saturday September 7th.

This year’s North Cork Junior ‘A’ Football Final took place last Saturday on a beautiful evening, in front of a great crowd at the very well organised Kildorrery GAA pitch. The game had a 6:30pm throw-in and we knew we were up against it with this very strong Kilshannig side who had already won the division one and two football leagues earlier this year along with the junior ‘B’ football championship the previous weekend. However, hopes were high within the club of a competitive performance and maybe even an upset after our wins over Buttevant, Charleville and Fermoy in the previous rounds.  The Thomas Kent Pipe Band led the teams in the pre-match parade before the national anthem was sung and a little later than scheduled, it was finally time for the ball to be throw up and for the game to begin. Kilworth needed to hit the ground running from the start but it was Kilshannig who dominated the early stages and after just eight minutes they led 0-5 to no score. In truth they got the start that we needed with all of their points coming from play. Eoin Carey finally got Kilworth out of the blocks in the 13th minute with a point from play followed by a converted 45”. The score line now read 0-5 to 0-2 and Kilworth were slowly coming into the game. Kilshannig suffered five wides in a row and were unlucky not to score a goal in the 20th minute only for the ball to be successfully stopped on the line by keeper Jamie Sheehan. Both sides tagged over further points and the score line read 0-7 to 0-3 when Kilworth were awarded a close range free in the 25th minute. Eoin Carey struck the free only for the ball to come back off the crossbar and in the same play Kilshannig cleared the ball down field and they quickly found the back of our net for the first of their three eventual goals. Had that free found the back of the Kilshannig net, we would have been in a good position coming up to half time but instead it pushed us further behind and gave the opposition a comfortable cushion at the break. We never looked like coming back from here and at half time Kilshannig led 1-9 to 0-4.

Nathan Byrne registered the first score of the second half after five minutes extending Kilworth’s tally to 0-5. However, things would only get worse for us a minute later as Kilshannig ran through on goal, defeating four defenders to get their second of the game and they now led 2-9 to 0-5. The game was effectively over at this stage and our last score of the game came in the 43rd minute as Kilshannig completely took over for the last quarter and they ran out deserving winners on the final score line of 3-16 to 0-7. Although this was another very disappointing final defeat, we were beaten by a far superior Kilshannig side and they were very worthy of their victory. We would like to congratulate them on their win and wish them all the best going forward in the county. On behalf of the club we would like to thank the management of Pat, Brian, Maurice and Mark for taking on the team at the start of the year and for doing great work with the players in order to get us to another North Cork Final. The long wait for a junior football title continues but I’m sure one day it will come, we just have to keep trying.
