Minor Champ C Final: Castleconnor 1-10 v Drumcliffe 0-12

posted 26 Sep 2011, 17:51 by Bart Barrins
This was a real ding dong affair with the result in doubt till the final whistle and for some time after until confirmed by the sideline officials and referee. It was played on Saturday where there was a strong breeze that went into the Cloonacool corner of the field. However the breeze did not seem to be any benefit to either team but actually caused havoc at free time.
 
The first half was very even. Having to field without Martin Foody suspended and Conor Judge, Stevie Curley and Matthew Cullen all injured we had the bare 13 players but they were a credit to themselves, their families and their club throughout.
 
John McDonnell had one of his best games so far for the club winning a lot of ball at midfield and always available and running for laid off ball. He got our first score from a free and followed with another from play. Shane Wright scored a delightful point when throwing a few dummies and a one two with Jason Earlis to leave the scores all square. Kevin McDonnell scored a long range free and we missed a good chance from another when dropped by the opposition in the small square. We were 2 points down coming into the break but two excellent scores one from Eoin Flynn and the from Eoin Kent after a lung bursting run all the way from the full back line left us level at the break 0-6 a piece.
 
We made a bad start to the second half and fell three points behind. John McDonnell scored a close in free to narrow the gap but it was out to 3 points again with 15 to go.  We then hit a purple patch and with the movement of Anthony Kilcullen to centre half back, Shane Wright to the full forward line and James Flynn to the wing, all three were involved as we got a goal with Shane showing his soccer skills to go around the keeper and roll the ball to the net. Jason Earlis put us in front after a good run by Eoin Kent. This was followed by another monster from the wing by Kevin McDonnell. Drumcliffe pulled it back again to level but we won the next three kickouts and were in the lead with another point.  We then missed two frees but on the next kickout the referee blew the final whistle. With all the excitement, neither team, officials nor suporters were sure what the result was but when it was confirmed there was great joy on our side.
 
This was a great achievement for the lads and management especially considering the lads who were unable to play but each player stepped up to the mark showing great tenacity and never say die spirit. Brian Feeney kickouts were long all day. Ronan Barrett won lots of balls he should not have. Kieran Kilcullen and Keith Foody playing in positions they were not accustomed to kept plugging hard all day. When James Flynn came to the wing, he won the first two breaking balls with one leading to the winning point. Keith Earlis had the tough task of marking his county minor colleague Paul Logan but came out of it unscathed.
 
Thanks to the lads, their families and management for all their work throughout the year. Most of these lads now have the U20 championship to look forward to next weekend.
 
Team: Brian Feeney, Eoin Kent (0-1), Anthony Kilcullen, Kieran Kilcullen, Keith Earlis, Ronan Barrett, John McDonnell(0-2), Kevin McDonnell(0-3), Keith Foody, Eoin Flynn(0-1), Shane Wright (1-1), Jason Earlis (0-1), James Flynn

U14 B Champ final: Castleconnor 0-1 v Tourlestrane 4-10

posted 19 Sep 2011, 11:42 by Bart Barrins
Our U14 team played in the B championship final inTubbercurry last Wednesday evening against Tourlestrane. This was only the fourth game for the lads this year and it showed particularly in
the first half where lads were not as sharp picking up the sliotar and getting away their shots quickly. Despite very good effort we turned around at half time losing by 2-7. However Cian Barrins, Brendan Foody, Paul Flynn and Lewis Beardshall did shine.
 
In the second half lads touch and eye came in more and they started to show their skills, with the Tuffys, James Boland beginning to show their skills. Kenneth Flynn, Odhran Quinn and Elliot Beardshall were starved of possession in the full forward line. Seán Carrabine showed why he was the main scorer last year with a number of scroching solo runs in the half, unlucky not to score a goal or two and having to settle for a point on another occassion. A better performance in the second half with also an outstanding full length diving save from captain for the evening Stephen Durkan, however it was not good enough against a very good Tourlestrane and we were defeated 4-10 v 0-1.
Team: Stephen Durkan, James Boland, Cian Barrins, Brendan Foody, Jason Tuffy, Paul Flynn, Lewis Beardshall, Odhran Quinn, Sean Carrabine, Stephen Tuffy, Kenneth Flynn, Elliot Beardshall. 
 
Thanks to the children and parents for their efforts all year and to management for their input all year.

Enniscrone were visitors to Corballa on Friday evening. Thankfully there was good drying before the game and it didn't rain during it which helped both teams.
 
Enniscrone got off to a good start and were 2 points up early on but then we went on a scoring rampage with goals from Seán Carrabine, Kenneth Flynn and Luke Munnelly, to leave us leading by a good margin at the break.
 
3 goals in the first 3 minutes of the second half put the game beyond the visitors and we finished with a comfortable victory.
 
Team: Elliot Beardshall, Fergal Boland, James Boland, Niall Judge, Thomas Howley, Paul Flynn, Benny Foody, Seán Carrabine, Míchael Cahill, Danny O'Hora, Luke Munnelly, Kenneth Flynn, Odhrán Quinn,  Subs: Dáire Barrins, Oisín Flynn

U13 Rd 2: Castleconnor 4-4 v St.Pats 5-10

posted 5 Sep 2011, 17:24 by Bart Barrins
This game was played last Friday evening. The driving rain did quieten down during the game but handling for both teams was a lottery as the heavy evenings rain had made conditions very difficult for both teams.
 
The visitors broke through for a goal in the first minute and soon followed with a point. An excellent piece of individual play by Luke Munnelly ended with him driving to the net. This was followed shortly with another goal after Odhrán Quinn was first to respond to a ball off the post. Seán Carrabine added a point but at the half time whistle the visitors lead 2-2 3-5.
 
We got off to a great start to the second half with a great goal by Paul Flynn after a driving run in from the wing. This was quickly followed by a Luke Munnelly point. However the visitors took over then and extended their lead. In the last number of minutes we got through for a consolation goal.
 
Despite the loss it was a good performance from our very young team (with 4 u10s playing), and with a bit more team play the score could have been closer.
 
Team: Elliot Beardshall, Fergal Boland, James Boland, Thomas Howley, Paul Flynn, Brendan Foody, Seán Carrabine, Mícheal Cahill, Danny O'Hora, Luke Munnelly, Kenneth Flynn, Odhrán Quinn, Dáire Barrins, Oisín Flynn, James Tully.

U10 Hurling Blitz

posted 5 Sep 2011, 17:14 by Bart Barrins
Our U10 team travelled to Kent Park last Monday to partake in the final blitz of the year. Showing great skills and tenacity the team played 4 games on the evening.
 
The first game was against Coolera and the highlight for us was an excellent pointed free by Oisín Flynn from just inside his half.
We then took on Drumcliffe and this was up and down the field for the duration of the game with Owen Gillard and Brian Durkan getting their second goals of the week with Ronán Wilson hooking and blocking a joy to watch.
 
Next we took on the combined team of Calry and Easkey. Ruarí Gallagher calmness when under pressure in goal and Liam Donnegans play at full back were excellent.
 
Our last game was against the hosts Naomh Eoin and we showed tremendous heart  with Daniel Ruane putting his body in the way of a hurl, Dáire Barrins taking great sideline cuts and Paul Ruane all over the place.
 
After the games we had drawn 3 and lost 1. In the dressing room we treated the youngsters to refreshments and thanked them for their efforts all year.
 
Thanks to the parents and players and management for all their efforts. It is hoped to be back in the next few weeks with indoor hurling.

Novel Cow Dung Festival!

posted 2 Sep 2011, 11:43 by Unknown user
Last weekend August 20/21 the Club hosted the inaugural novel Cow Dung Festival at the Community Centre and GAA Park. The unusual title and main theme of the weekend, namely the cow dung bingo captured the imagination of the people locally, and those who came from afar. Gerry Guthrie and his country band and Pats Country Road show opened the festival on Saturday night and a great crowd filled the main hall and dance floor for the night. It was a credit to all involved who had the main hall, and the newly made Bar looking splendid. The crowd danced the night away into the small hours and a great night was had by all.

There was no rest for the organising committee as the next morning wasn't long coming! First on the schedule for Sunday was the Castleconnor-Bonniconlon Honda Run. About 30 bikes departed from the community centre at 12.30pm. The sun began to shine and the families and kids enjoyed some fun and activities on the GAA pitch with plenty of events to keep them occupied. Pat Boyle provided music on the pitch and a good atmosphere was starting to build up. The Honda run returned at about 3.00pm and the hall was filling up rapidly to watch the Mayo v Kerry match on the big screens. There was a fantastic atmosphere in the place throughout the duration of the game and the packed house cheered on our neighbours for this contest.

After the match it was time to bring Betsy the cow onto the pitch. The crowd at the bar and in the hall flocked to the stand and pitch perimeters to see Betsy arrive onto the field. After about an hour and a half Betsy had done her bit!, and the laser measuring devices confirmed that Anthony Gallagher from Killala in Mayo had bought that lucky square, winning €2000.
Inside in the Community Centre Roisin Gordon was providing the entertainment, and after we held the Club Lotto Draw. €13,650 was the main prize, however there was no winning ticket and Jerome Clarke from Easkey matched 3 numbers winning €150. Tara Cawley and her band Retaken took to the stage shortly after and played in to the night. Another great night was had by all Sunday night as the weekend came to a close, with all the hard work evidently proving to be worthwhile. Other prizes for people who had squares close to the winning one were winners of €100. These were Kathleen Lynn, Geraldine Caden, Austin Tuffy, Peter Flynn, Paula Duggan, Wayne Ryan, John Hopkins and Nora McDonnell.€25 winners were David Fox, Sarah Gillard, Claire Byrne, Pascal Gillard, Patricia Greavey, Sharon Barrett, John Creegan and Eugene Sheridan.

The Club would like to thank all the people who supported the event, our community spirit showed as usual. The finance committee deserves great credit for their hard work and to all the volunteers who helped before, during and after the event with the clean up. There are far too many names to mention. Lets hope that this time next year, the Castleconnor GAA Club will be hosting another festival!

U-16 A Championship Shield Final: Castleconnor 0-23 v 1-06 Geevagh

posted 31 Aug 2011, 14:29 by Unknown user   [ updated 2 Sep 2011, 11:34 ]
The under 16 team had a comprehensive victory over Geevagh in the final of the A Championship shield on Monday night last at Markievicz Park.
 
James Flynn opened Castleconnor's account with a fine point and the team rushed into a 6 point lead with points from Stephen Curley and Sean Carrabine. Geevagh tried very hard and got off the mark with a well taken free on 13 minutes. Carrabine replied for us on 16 minutes after good work from Kevin McDonnell, Shane Wright and Stephen Curley.
 
Just before the interval Geevagh snatched a quick goal leavin it 1-1 to 0-14.
 
In the second period the men from the East werent lying down and popped over a few nice points, 1-5 to 0-16, but our lads responded well and were never in doubt as we finished winners 0-23 to 1-6, with Stephen Curley's tally a remarkable 17 points.
 
Arthur Beardshall kept the rearguard on their feet at all times, the full back line namely Keith Fooda, Conor Judge and Liam Naughton were very solid and kept their opponents chances to a minimum throughout. Conor Gallagher, Jason Earlis and Eoin Kent in the half back line were sweeping up the kckouts, helping the midfielders and delivering the ball directly inside. Ciaran Kilcullen and Kevin McDonnell kept on top of things in the middle of the park while James Flynn, Shane Wright and Cian Barrins in the half forward line ran at Geevaghs defence. Lewis Beardshall, Stephen Curley and Sean Carrabine in the full forward line worked very well together with the eldest of the trio leading by example.
 
Afterwards the team captain Kevin McDonnell was presented with the cup by Peter McHugh, Chairman Coiste na nOg Shligigh and the team went to Muddy Burns after for refreshments.
Well Done to the team and management of Michael McDonnell, Paul Kilcullen and Darren Ruane.
 
The members of the team are still involved in Minor Championship and hopefully this will make them even hungrier for more silverwear.

U12 HL Rd5: Castleconnor 1-2 v Tubbercurry 3-1

posted 21 Jul 2011, 08:48 by Bart Barrins
The lads were in Kilcoyne Park on Wednesday evening where the weather was good for hurling. When we played Tubber in the third round we were well beaten but this time things were a lot closer. This is a game where our lads did everything right up to putting the scores on the board. They dominated throughout the pitch and played some of the best hurling they have ever played with a plenty of successful pulling of high balls and doubling on shots.
 
In the first half we were in complete control but we hit wide after wide and the home keeper made a number of good stops and clearances. Towards the end of the half Tubber broke up field and with a long range effort they scored a goal just under the crossbar. The half time score had the home team leading 1-0 v 0-0.
 
We were a bit subdued at the start of the second but finally we put a score on the board with a point from play from Odhrán Quinn after receiving a pass from Paul Flynn. Our younger players were getting more confidence and it was great to see Oisín Flynn and Colm Naughton striking the ball expertly. The Tubber strength was their hooking and blocking in particular and they got a point from a free, to increase their lead. They followed this up with a goal from a free and another goal from play. Despite this we still dominated play but were not calm in front of goals.
 
With 4 minutes to go Kenneth Flynn drove an unstoppable shot to the roof of the net after a good clearance from jason Tuffy who had one of his best games for the team. Shortly after the home keeper made a great save and from the resulting clearance Odhrán Quinn got his second point from play. Hard as we tried in the last few minutes we did not breach the goal again. However all the lads can be very happy with everything they did bar the result. The doubling on balls by James Boland, Colm Naughton and Kenneth Flynn was a feature of the game with the high fielding of Quinn and Paul Flynn at midfield another.
 
The team are out in two weeks time when we have a home fixture to Calry.

JFC B Leg1 :Castleconnor 0-5 v Eastern Harps 1-10

posted 18 Jul 2011, 09:21 by Bart Barrins
The team travelled to Keash on Sunday evening for this first leg game against Eastern Harps. In the horrendous conditions the team who had lost a number of players the night before in the intermediate championship put up a good effort.
 
We were against  the wind and rain in the first half and got off to a good start with a point from Patrick Cleary. A number of minutes later Bart Barrins drove a 45 over the bar against the wind and followed this up later with a point from play after being assisted by Diarmuid Howley. Just before the break the visitors got through for a decisive goal to lead 1-8 v 0-3 at the break.
 
We failed to reduce this lead in the second half and missed two good goal scoring chances late on with only points from frees from Eoin Flynn to show for our efforts. The final score was 1-10 v 0-5. However with the home leg next week and Harps no doubt going to lose some players to Intermediate the team are still in with a chance on Sunday.
 
Team: B.Feeney, K.Maye, K.Cawley, U.McGranahan, D.Howley, R.Barrett, D.Gilmartin, M.Fitzsimons, B.Barrins(0-2), P.Flynn, E.Flynn(0-2), S.Feeney, P.Cleary(0-1). Sub D.Forde.

IFC Rd3: Castleconnor 0-3 v St.Pats 1-7

posted 18 Jul 2011, 09:18 by Bart Barrins
This local derby attracted a good crowd to Quigabar on Saturday evening despite the horrendous weather. We lost Paul Sweeney and Brian Howley before the start due to illness and injury and things went downhill after that.
 
We had the elements in the first half and lead by 2 points both scores coming from Kevin Langan. In the 20th minute a dipping shot from Pats deceived our keeper and ended up in the net. Two minutes later Anthony Kilcullen atoned for that by saving a well struck penalty. We hit a number of wides before the end of the half and trailed 0-2 v 1-0 at the break.
 
The second half we fell away and only scored one point again from Kevin Langan. This was a game where a lot of lads did not do themselves justice, with John Tuffy, Alan Naughton, Michael Langan and Brian Curley keeping going till the end.
 
Team on Duty: A. Kilcullen, T. Cawley, J. Tuffy, B. Howley, Brian Howley, M.Langan, R. Keane, A. Naughton, P. Kilcullen, J.McDonnell, K. Langan(0-3), A. Cawley, B. Lynn, B. Curley, J.O'Regan

IFC Rd 2: Castleconnor 1-10 v 2-12 St. Farnan's

posted 9 Jul 2011, 13:11 by Unknown user   [ updated 9 Jul 2011, 13:48 ]
 
This local derby drew a good crowd to Quigabar on Friday evening last for round two of the Intermediate Football Championship.
 
Playing with the elements in the opening period, the team got off to a slow start and a massive save by keeper Anthony Kilcullen after two minutes denied Farnans a goal. However just over a minute later our opponents opened up our rearguard yet again and blasted to the net.
 
A good Castleconnor reponse would be imperative, and this is what was given as the team kicked five points without reply, coming from Brian Lynn, John O'Regan, and three points from Kevin Langan.
 
On 16 minutes, St. Farnans went on the rampage again, the resultant being another goal thus putting our progress back a step. We were falling into trouble down the centre undoubtedly.  John O'Regan responded almost immediately with a point after good work from Kevin Langan and Paul Sweeney. The sides traded scores again leavin it all square at the break, 2-2 to 0-8.
 
Just like the first half, we started slow on the restart and a lack of concentration at very important times cost the team two points with two frees in the first and second minutes respectively. Farnans went 3 points ahead on 38 minutes, and Paul Sweeney responded six minutes later after good work from Brian Curley. 47 minuteswas gone on the clock and the scoreboard read 2-7 to 0-10 in favour of the blue and whites and suddenly a very good individual goal from Brian Curley left the game hanging in balance. ( 2-7 to 1-10) 
 
The failure of the team to register another score in the last 13 minutes of the contest proved to be fatal as Farnans scored five points on the trot to leave the score at 2-12 to 1-10. Castleconnor will be disappointed in one way as the game was there for the taking, but at the same time will be happy with the determination and hard work shown throughout. 
 
Training continues on Tuesday and Thursday this week. Round 3 versus St. Pats takes place next
Saturday evening, again in Enniscrone. Its the second game of a double header, Throw In is at 7.30PM. Please support.

U12 HL Rd3: Castleconnor 3-1 v Tourlestrane 4-4

posted 8 Jul 2011, 09:35 by Bart Barrins
The lads had a home game in this round when Tourlestrane were visitors on Wednesday. There was a strong wind towards the Ballina end which the visitors had in the first half.
We started well but were 3 points down when Tourlestrane were awarded a close in free which was smached to the net, They also scored a soft goal just before the break to leave them leading 2-4 v 0-0.
 
Things did not improve at the start of the second half when the visitors scored 1-1 in the first few minutes. At last our lads started to play and the defensive bravery of Colm Naughton was easily seen. Paul Flynn went on a scoring spree and got his first goal after a pass from Kenneth Flynn, he then scored a long range goal after a pass from James Boland. He then proceeded to score a 65 after a good save by the opposition keeper. Odhran Quinn put him through for his final score.
 
The team were now playing as a team but they left their final comeback too late and ended up losing 3-1 v 4-4.

Minor League Q-Final: Castleconnor 2-8 v 2-8 Tourlestrane

posted 8 Jul 2011, 01:11 by Unknown user   [ updated 8 Jul 2011, 01:40 ]
A goal and 3 points on the trot in the last five and a half minutes of this Minor league quarter final played at Tourlestrane this evening ensured Castleconnor will get another chance to book a semi final spot.
 
In very slippery conditions the team got off to a poor start and two soft goals for Tourlestrane in the opening half left the team on the backfoot, as we trailed 2-4 to 0-2 at the break.
 
32 seconds after the restart Ciaran Kilcullen rattled the Tourlestrane net and Castleconnor began to play in patches. Our opponents dominated proceedings for the next while and we trailed 2-8 to 1-5 with five and a half minutes remaining.
 
Substitute Keith Foody smashed to the net after three minutes on the field of play and this revived Castleconnor's comeback. Three points in the final three minutes from Eoin Flynn, Kevin McDonnell, and Stephen Curley left it at 2-8 a piece. A last minute free from Tourlestrane broke down in the danger area and after a clearance from our reargard, referee Michael Duffy brought a halt to proceedings.
 
Details of the replay are to be confirmed. The team will be hoping to improve on their overall performance for the replay.

We had our final game of the league when we went to local rivals Easkey in a match where the winner would be promoted to division 1.
 
 A constant rain shower during the first half made ball handling very difficult for both teams. Easkey got through for a goal in the 20th minute and should have had a second just before half time except for an excellent save by keeper Bart Barrins.
 
At half time we trailed 1-4 v 0-5 with our scores coming from Paul Kilcullen, John O'Regan and Kevin Langan. However Easkey upped it in the second half and we lost 2-12 v 0-5.

Played on Sunday morning in Geevagh, it was a 13-a-side fixture. Both teams were tentative at the beginning with us eventually taking the lead with a Ronan Keane point. It was 3 points all after 20 minutes with John McDonnell and Paul Sweeney scoring. The killer blow was struck by the home team scoring three goals just before the half time break which came after a good team move from our selves finished shaving the post for goal. The half time score was 3-5 v 0-3.
 
Geevagh extended the lead after the break with a quick point and then another goal. This seemed to wake us us and Paul Sweeney scored an excellent goal and this was followed by 1-1 from John McDonnell who shot into the roof of the net. Paul Sweeney scored another point but that was as good as it got and a game of missed chances meant we lost 4-9 v 2-5.

posted 26 Jun 2011, 20:30 by Bart Barrins
Our lads went to Tourlestrane on Wednesday for their first game in a month and it showed in the first half. The conditions were perfect for hurling. The stronger home team were off the mark early in the half and and by half time they had moved into a commanding lead of 4-6 to nil.
 
The second half the lads showed a lot of good effort and more efficency in their effort and touches. Stephen Durkan who went into goal was booming the puck outs way down the field and this eventually paid off with a point from Seán Carrabine. This was followed shortly afterwards by a goal from Cian Barrins after a good solo run. Two other scores from Lewis Beardshall and Stephen Tuffy meant that we finished on a more optimistic note.
 
Thanks to the home club for having ice available which helped greatly in the treatment of a hand injury.

U12 D Cup final: Castleconnor 8 v Geevagh 5

posted 21 Jun 2011, 13:00 by Bart Barrins
Markievicz park was the setting for the final on Monday evening. When the teams clashed earlier in the league at Corballa we were very lucky to win. David and Michael had a full panel to call on for nearly the first time this year in a resplendant Markievicz.
 
The first quarter was a ding dong affair and was scoreless for most of the time, but then Odhrán Quinn and Paul Flynn got two quick scores leaving us to lead 2 v 0 at the end of th first quarter. We got off to a better start in the 2nd quarter with some great foot passing from defence and midfield into our forwards and it was no surprise when we turned over at half time leading 0-4 v 0-1.
The thrid quarter was like the second and we got three good scores from Odhrán Quinn, Paul Flynn and Mícheal Cahill. Thomas Howley, James Boland Niall Judge and Kenneth Flynn were marshalling the Geevagh forwards and at the end of this quarter we lead 7 v 3.
 
Geevagh came back at the start of the thrid quarter as our lads started to defend the lead and heading into the final minutes it was 7 v 5 but a long range free from captain Odhrán Quinn helped ease the pressure, though Geevagh had a few disappointing efforts from frees in this time. The final whistle blew and we had retained the trophy that was won in 2010.
 
Captain Odhrán received the cup from Martin Seery and made a fine speech. Well done to the whole squad who all played their part on the evening. A special word of thanks to David Mahoney and Michael Cahill who did so much work al year with this squad which was very evident on the evening with their fine kick passing and tackling. Thanks to all the parents and supporters who gave lifts and vocal encouragement throughout the year

Div 2 Rd 10: Castleconnor 1-15 v Eastern Harps 0-9

posted 18 Jun 2011, 22:57 by Bart Barrins
The lads got back on the winning trail after three successive defeats in league and championship. A strong crossfield breeze had no effect on the game. Things looked decidedly poor for us when we trailed by 0-6 v 0-0 after 13 minutes. Kevin Langan got us off the mark and from the resulting kickout Alan Naughton caught the kickout and drove forward to score an excellent point with the outside of his right foot from an awkward angle.
 
This was followed up with another long range point from Brian "Crouch" Howley who was starting to cause havoc around the square. Darragh Gilmartin made the long run up from corner back to score a good point and Kevin Langan and Paul Kilcullen points left us behind 0-8 v 0-7 at the break.
 
We got off to a great start in the second half with two great points from Paul Kilcullen and John McDonnell each and then a monster left-footed effort from Brian Howley. The defence kept the visitors attack at bay with Ronán Keane and David Fox storming out of defence. In the last few minutes John McDonnell was fouled when shooting for goal and Kevin Langan hitting the resultant penalty to the roof of the net.
 
It was some turnaround for the team during the hour and the result puts the team in third place going into the final game of the league where they still can be promoted but that is a monstrous task as they travel to Easkey where they must defeat Easkey to knock them out of promotion.

County Place kicking championships for two Corballa NS students

posted 18 Jun 2011, 22:46 by Bart Barrins   [ updated 20 Jun 2011, 10:48 ]
Aoibhe Barrins and Seán Carrabine who had gone through four qualifying rounds throughout the county, reached the final where each had 3 opponents for the title of county place kicking champions.
 
The boys competition took place first and after the first round Seán was sharing first with two other boys. In the second round Seán missed two but so did one of the other lads, however the boy from Castlerock hit only 1 miss and was the winner. Seán had to take 7 separate frees from all angles before defeating the lad from Sooey to come second in the competition.
 
In the girls competition Aoibhe made short work of the competition when becoming the only child boy or girl to score all 6 of her first frees to be declared the girls county free taking champion for 2011.
 
Well done to both Seán and Aoibhe who were presented with their awards by Mark Brehony
 

Co. Girls Schools final(4-5teacher) Corballa 5 v Moylough 6

posted 18 Jun 2011, 22:33 by Bart Barrins   [ updated 20 Jun 2011, 10:47 ]
The girls from Corballa went down with the final bounced ball in this excellent final. When the girls look back they will realise that their failure to score in the first half and too many wides cost them the title.
 
In the first half we were very sluggish and second to the ball however the brillant tackling by our backs Catherine Rogan, Celine Gallagher, Aoife Meenaghan, Josina Linka and keeper Marie Cahill kept the team in it. When the half time whistle blew we trailed 3 v 1.
 
From the throw in Aoibhe Barrins caught it and drove through the defence to score the first point for Corballa. From the resulting kickout Amy Cawley-Fox got another score. Moylough went up the field and scored a point. Lauren Cawley punched a point after very strong running by Aoife Durkan who carried a lot of ball in either half. Again Moylough opened up the score advantage but good work by Amy Ruane saw Sarah Flynn fouled and Aoibhe Barrins scored from the free. With 2 minutes to go Amy Cawley Fox put over the equaliser.
 
In the last minute the both sides tried their hardest to get a winner and just when it looked like the game would be heading for a replay, a long range effort from midfield by Moylough bounced up and rolled over the crossbar for the winning score. The team sunk to their knees as the final whistle blew, but they tried their best and on the day it just was not enough. Thanks to Mr.Keane and Mr.Fogarthy for their efforts in getting the team to the final.

Div 4 Rd 8:Castleconnor 1-6 v Shamrock Gaels 1-16

posted 18 Jun 2011, 22:19 by Bart Barrins
The junior team had their first game in a number of weeks when Shamrock Gaels were visitors to Corballa on Friday evening. Good conditions prevailed throughout the game.
 
The visitors got off to a quick start and were 3-0 up after a few minutes but we got back into it with both of our midfielders scoring long range points. As the half progressed we got more confident and a number of points kept us in contention with John McDonnell very unlucky that a lob just finished over the bar. But in the last attack of the half he scored a screamer of a goal after a very good team movement to leave us leading 1-5 v 0-6.
 
The visitors got the perfect start to the second half with a very good individual goal. They followed it up with good points from around the park. The visitors goalkeeper was probably the man of the match though and made three excellent saves during the second half, all at times that would have meant this game would have gone down to the final minutes. All we had to show for the half though was an excellently worked 45 that Stephen Kilgallon scored. The lads worked to the end and the visitors keeper made a final excellent save from player/manager Pat Flynn.
 
Team: Brian Flynn, Alan Naughton, Darragh Gilmartin, Ronán Barrett, Anthony Kilcullen, Kevin Maye, Morgan Fitzsimons(0-2), Brian Howley(0-1), Eoin Flynn, Stephen Kilgallon(0-1), Frank Barrett, John McDonnell(1-2), Patrick Cleary. Subs: Ultan McGranahan, Dermot Forde, Pat Flynn.

In the Girls U13 final, Catriona Swift defeated clubmate Rachel Foody.  Aoife Quinn followed this up in the Girls U14 singles final when she proved too strong for her club mate Marianna Foody.
The Girls plate final was again a Castleconnor club affair with Mary Foody defeating Leah Swift.
 
In the boys section there was despair for Jason Earlis as  Collooney’s Stanley Harte was the star in the Boys U-15 grade. Harte with his strong left hand used it effectively and Harte ran out the winner in the end by 15-9.
Seán Carrbine lost out in the U13 Plate final to Conor Booth of Ballymote whilst in the U15 plate final Barry McLoughlin defeated his clubmate Shane Wright.
Thanks to the organising committee and all those who helped in the smooth running of the event.

Castleconnor played Coolaney Mullinabreena in the first round of this years Intermediate championship on Saturday evening in Tourlestrane. The conditions were almost perfect except for the midges who had a great evening as did our opposition. We were totally outplayed in the front third of the field with midfield proabably winning their battle.
 
The team lost the influential Michael Langan in the first minute through injury. Alan cawley equalised with a great point after seven minutes from the left. Coolaney then got through for 2 quick goals from long balls in over the defences heads. After 20 mins, the score was 3-3 v 0-2  with Kevin Langan our other point scorer. At half time it was 3-6 v 0-2
 
The game was long over before the final whistle, however we started with a bit more bite but two goal chances went a begging and we were defeated heavily 5-14 v 0-6.

U10 Community Games: Castleconnor 3-1 v Cornageeha 4-3

posted 10 Jun 2011, 12:15 by Bart Barrins
Our community games team travelled to Carraroe on Thursday evening for this quarter-final fixture. A large downpour delayed the start of the game but eventually it cleared up and the game started. From the off we showed great heart and especially teamwork. Matthew Blakeney scored a goal early on but oursustained pressure was not reflected on the scoreboard plus we struck the crossbar and post during this period. Our hosts scored two goals and a point late in the half to lead 2-1 v 1-0 at the break
 
In the second half we got off to a good start with 1-1 from Dáire Barrins early in the half to draw us level. However like the first half we could not put the ball between the sticks and again we struck the crossbar. Cornageeha broke out and scored 1-2 to put us back on the back foot. Oisín Flynn then struck a low shot to the net and the hosts defence denied Orla Naughton on two occassions and Colm Naughton also. A breakaway goal again left us scrambling but despite the efforts of Patrick Cooney, Owen Gillard, Rian Winters, Daniel Ruane, Eilidh McPhee, Marie Flynn and young Thomas Langan failed and the final whistle blew with us again on the attack.
 
Despite losing this was a great performance by all involved and their never say die spirit and teamwork and togetherness was shown throughout. After the game drinks sponsored by Tuffys Corballa were welcomed by all the team.

JBFC Leg 2: Castleconnor 1-08 v 0-10 Eastern Harps

posted 8 Jun 2011, 21:44 by Unknown user
The Junior team defeated Eastern Harps by the narrowest of margins on Sunday last in the second leg of the championship, however we needed to win by 8 or more to progress to the next stage.
 
Eastern Harps started the better scoring two points, and we replied with 1-1 after 15 minutes. The team lost Bart Barrins to a serious leg injury after. Both sides failed to convert possesion into scores on many occasions in the second period, and the team held out to win 1-8 to 0-10.
 
Thanks to Pat Flynn and Gerry Holmes for managing the side for the year, its great for such a small club to operate a second team at senior grade

This match was played at Corballa on Monday evening. As both sides had the numbers it was agreed to play a 13-a-side game. In the first half we played towards the church end and despite a slow start we came back into the game well and at the half time break we trailed 2-5(7) v 2-6(8).
 
A woeful first quarter in the second half was where all the damage was done. Drumcliffe took over at midfield and picked off scores from all angles. It took us 17 minutes to register our first score of the second half but the score was out of reach at this time. But the lads soldiered on till the end and for the last 10 minutes matched the visitors.
 
The team are now preparing for the Shield final on Friday.

Div 2 Rd 9:Castleconnor 1-3 v St.Farnans 0-11

posted 5 Jun 2011, 21:30 by Bart Barrins
We travelled to Templeboy on Sunday. It turned out to b a crazy day weather wise with wind and constant rain and driving rain in the second half with the pitch close to unplayable during the seond half and many players on both sides looking like "Bambi on ice" regularly.
 
We played against the wind in the first and with 5 minutes of the half to go we only trailed 0-4 v 0-2 mostly due to the wayward shooting of the home team. In the last few minutes of the half they got their shooting boots on and finished strongly to lead 0-7 v 0-2 at the half time whistle.
 
After the break the weather deteriorated so badly that most of the supporters went into the dressingrooms. We got the first score of the half with a point but the home side tackled and harried for their lives and they got a number of vital scores from frees during the half. Eventually we got a major score as an excellent team move was finished to the net left footed by David Carrabine, however it was too little too late.
 
Team: A.Kilcullen, Brendan Howely, D.Fox, R.Keane, Brian Howley, D.Carrabine(1-0), D.Howley, A.Naughton, M.Langan, A.Cawley(0-1), K.Langan(0-1), T.Cawley, B.Lynn, B.Curley, F.Barrett. Subs: J.McDonnell, K.Naughton.

Corballa NS boys bow out of schools championship

On Friday afternoon in Quigabar, the Corballa boys played 4 games in the schools championship.
 
After easy victories over Enniscrone and Quigabar they faced Dromore West in a do or die for both teams, with the losers out of the competition. At half time we lead by 1 after playing with the breeze but an excellent second half saw the lads come through strongly to win by 5.
 
Dromore West were now out and so the final game of the day between Corballa and Highpark became the winner takes all game. We played with the wind in the first half and lead by 2 at the break. However midfielder Paul Flynn had to pull out at this point and in the second half the stronger Highpark boys took over to win handsomely.
 
However it was a great effort from the Corballa boys who can look back with pride on their days efforts

The team travelled to Tourlestrane on Wednesday evening. Despite 5 of the lads playing games on Monday and Tuesday they made a great effort to be there and put in a good show.
 
The home team took an early lead in the game but a super long range free from Paul Flynn, put us on the attack and Kenneth Flynn finished off the move with a score. Yet again the visitors took the lead but when after 10 minutes we moved back to regular hurling (not just ground hurling), our strong midfield started to dominate with Odhran Quinn getting two scores and Kenneth Flynn adding in another, to lead at the break 4 v 2
 
In the second half our young defence of Fergal Boland, Ruairí Gallagher, Colm Naughton and Dáire Barrins kept out the opposition and with James Boland using his full back experience well we weathered the storm. For the last 15 minutes we kept possession but missed a number of scores with some good saves being made by the home keeper. Eventually Jason Tuffy, captain for the evening broke the deadlock with a fine groundstroke. He followed this up with another stroke following good work by Oisín Flynn, Paul Flynn and Odhrán Quinn.
 
It was a good show from our lads and it was a good even game throughout with the lads on both teams growing in confidence and stature with every touch of the sliotar. The team have a break next week and then will have Tubbercurry as their next opponents

posted 29 May 2011, 20:49 by Bart Barrins
The team suffered their third loss of the year when at windswept Corballa on Sunday the visitors St.Pats finished strongly to emerge victorious. Playing against the wind in the first half we were down 1-1 after 2 minutes but strong play from Kevin Langan brought us back into it. However the team ran out of luck when missing a number of good goal scoring chances throughout the half. At the half time whistle Frank Barrett scored the equaliser after another lucky escape at the Pats goal.
The half time score was 0-8 v 1-5.
 
Just like the first half, we managed to give the visitors a head start of 4 points when conceding 1-1 in the first 2 minutes of the half. But like the first half we played our way back into the game and took the lead following points from Paul Kilcullen and David Carrabine. Just after this we missed two excellent goal chances with neither forcing the keeper to make a save. The superior fitness of the visitors told as they scored a number of points in the last few minutes to win by 2, 2-11 v 0-15.

The under 16 team were defeated in the league shield final by a stronger Tubbercurry outfit at Kent Park on Monday evening last. 
 
The team got off to a bright start and had the majority of the possesion, however this didnt reflect on the scoreboard. Wayward shooting proved very costly, in contrast to the opposition who registered scores when they had the chances.
 
The team trailed 0-7 to 0-4 at the interval and could easily have been ahead. Tubbercurry took over in the second half and our lads failed to come out of the blocks.
 
The team will have a break now until after the exams and will have a few more players back into the team for the championship campaign.

Our U12 hurlers had their first game of the year at home on Wednesday evening. With a very young panel it was always going to be hard but it was extremely hard when the opposition was so strong. We played with the strong wind in the first half and had 3 chances early on to score but shot wide or short. The visitors then got the first of their many scores. At half time the lead was 6-4 and it only got worse in the second when they had the elements.
However all our players got a half and they never stopped trying throughtout. It will definitely strengthen our team for future games.

The Under 16 team travelled to Seamie Donegan Memorial Park in Dromard on Monday evening last to take on St. Pats in the semi final of the division 1 shield, as part of a double header with the Division2  final.
 
A wet and very windy evening made conditions very difficult for both teams. We got off to a great start playing against the elements with points from Stephen Curley, Eoin Kent, James Flynn and Shane Wright, with Jason Earlis being very influential on each move.  The team worked hard throughout the opening period, our rearguard being superb, with a notable perfomance from Conor Judge. The team led by 3 points at the interval, 0-7 to 0-4.
 
The team pulled away from our West division counterparts in the second period with goals from Cian Barrins, Lewis Beardshall and Wright. Final Score 3-18 to 1-04.

The two sides met at Sligo IT grounds on Saturday evening for the first time since Gaels dumped us out of the championship last year. A very strong gale force wind blew into the Calry end and the home team opted to play against it.
 
In the first minute Ronan Keane put us ahead with a point which followed directly with a goal from a penalty by Kevin Langan. From this bad start the home team scored the next 3 points and had us in disarray. Frank Barrett scored a lobbed goal and 3 quickfire points in the last few minutes of the half left us with the lead of 2-4 v 0-3.
 
In the first minutes of the second half we gifted a goal to the opposition from a 60m free to reduce the lead to 4 points with 27 minutes to play. However we totally took over from then on we the forwards winning a lot of ball in the tackle and creating good scoring chances for themselves. The best of the goals was a good team movement that ended with an Alan Cawley goal. In the end we won very easily with Kevin Langan acconting for 4-6 and Tom Cawley getting the other score

We played against a strong wind in the first half. Our inexperience showed regularly in the half and the rustiness of the players was evident when losing the sliotar in the tackle and getting hooked. We trailed coming up to the break 1-7 v 0-1 when we were awarded a penalty. Despite driving the penaalty well the shot from Seán Carrabine went just over the crossbar. From the resulting puckout the visitors scored their second goal despite some brave defending from Brendan Foody. We trailed at half time 2-10 v 0-2.
 
We got off to a good start in the second half with 2 long range points from Seán Carrabine and our forwards were unlicky with a few goal attempts. However the ability of one or two of the opposition to strike the sliotar long was a bridge we could not overcome and despite Seán scoring our goal from play the visitors won out easy 4-14 v 1-5.
 
We played all our available players and as the game progressed the lads ability to hook and block became more prevalent. Also it was great to see the progress the players have made since last year with all now striking the sliotar with confidence and all going on good solo runs.

U10 Hurling Blitz in Sligo

posted 10 May 2011, 11:48 by Bart Barrins
Our U10 hurlers had their first games of the year on Monday evening in Kevinsfort. Luckily the dreadful weather held off till the final whistle was blown and then the heavens opened.
We played 4 matches.
 
First up was Coolera with both teams very evenly matched. All games only allowed ground hurling and as the evening progressed our lads improved greatly.
We then played Drumcliffe, but despite dominating possession we went down by one score. Naomh Eoin from Sligo town were our next opponents with a very good game being played. Our last game was against Easkey. Another tight game and again despite having plenty of chances we did not take them losing by a single score.
 
It was a great evenings entertainment for those there and a great learning experience for the young lads, most of whom were playing their first official game of hurling
 
Thanks to those who provided lifts to children and hope to see you Wednesday when the U14 team take on Tourlestrane in Corballa.
 
Team: Liam Donnegan, Owen Gillard, Ruari Gallagher, David Coggins, Óisín Flynn, Ronán Wilson, Dáire Barrins, Daniel Ruane, Brian Durkan

The team played away to St.Farnans in the fifth round of the division 4 league. A gale force wind blew from the Sligo town end and completely ruined the game.
 
After the home side got the first point we broke upfield with the breeze and a strong run from Paul Sweeney ended with Ultan McGranahan scoring a goal low into the corner. The home side responded well and scored a few points and then a goal to put themselves up by 5. However 2 great long range points by Brian Howley and a free from Brian Lynn meant we turned over at the break trailing 1-6 v 1-3.
 
The sides exchanged points at the start of the second half with ours coming from Frank Barrett. However this was our last score for the half and the home side took full control for the final 20 mins to win 2-12 v 1-4.

The team were in Skreen on Tuesday night where a strong cold breeze blew towards the Templeboy end.  Missing Paul Flynn, Thomas Howley and Niall Judge, the lineup was young but all gave a good account of themselves.
 
For the first two quarters we played with the wind but the dominant Pats midfield still held sway and at the halfway point we trailed 8 v 6 with some notable scores being achieved with lads kicking off their weaker foot.
 
In the third quarter we were whitewashed by the stronger Pats team who scored from all positions of the field. In the fourth quarter we showed better ability and teamwork and got up the field for a couple of scores.

This match took place on Sunday in balmy weather at Corballa. This was a 15-a-side contest. The visitors had the breeze in the first half however we got off to a great start when Stevie Kilgannon finished a fumbled ball to the net in the first half. Like the evening before we squandered numerous scoring chances but just before the break a good team movement ended with Frank Barrett finishing to the net.
A few early points in the second half made the game secure but all players put in a good effort and worked hard till the final whistle at which point we had won by 2-11 v 0-8. It was great to have nearly a full squad to select from with Rónán Barrett making his senior debut with the team.

Saturday evening was a big night in the locality for we had our nearest neighbours Enniscrone as visitors for the senior league. This fixture had not happened in 20 years so a big crowd turned up for the event. The weather was perfect as the game got underway.
 
Kevin Langan had the red and whites in the lead early on but our visitors scored everytime they came down the field and despite us lording midfield our forwards were misfiring. A serious injury to Barry Judge just before the break delayed the short whistle. At the half time break we trailed 0-6 v 0-4, all our scores coming from Kevin Langan.
 
At the start of the second half we got the first score but this was immediately replied to. Seven minutes in a Kevin Langan attempt for a point ended up in the top corner of the net to give us a one point advantage which we did not relinquish for the rest of the game. We still missed a number of easy chances but in the last minute a great overhead catch by Darragh Gilmartin and pass to the onrushing Kevin Langan left him with the simple task of goaling and finishing the game with the scoreline of 2-11 v 0-8.

Managers David Mahoney and Michael Cahill went into this game without two of their leaders when both Paul Flynn and Ódhran Quinn were unavailable. However this meant that other lads picked up their game. At the end of the first quarter the game was fairly even at 3 scores a piece, both sides having superiority.
 
The second quarter saw some very good defensive displays from both set of backs and an excellent display by Micheál Cahill scoring with both feet. However at ht we trailed by 1 score.
 
At the start of the third quarter things looked shaky but then we hit a purple patch and scores from James Tully, Kevin Naughton, Micheál Cahill and Thomas Howley put us in a good position for the last quarter. A tense last 5 mins in the final quarter when the visitors were in control despite the best efforts of James Boland and Niall Judge had everyone at the edge of their seats.
 
The final whistle was blown and both sets of players and officials surrounded the referee to find out the score which thankfully went our way.

The teams second league game was on Saturday with Drumcliffe and this game turned out to be a cracker. The lead changed every few minutes and in the end either team was sure who had taken the spoils. Points from Colin Gordon(2), Barry Judge(2), Ultan McGranahan(2), his first for the club meant we were well in it at the break with the score 0-7 v 1-5.
 
It was tit for tat in the second with our midfielders Fitzsimons and Kilgallon (his first game in over a year) kept the scoreboard turning. Ultan was getting greedy having never scored for the club till this evening so he popped over a third one. However when the visitors scored a goal with 8 mins left to put them up 4 it looked over but we responded with a great individual goal from Barry Judge, and points from Daragh Gilmartin, and Kevin Maye put us in front with minutes to go.
 
A tense finish ensued and Bart Barrins showed all his experience when carrying the ball to the corner flag and holding onto it for what seemed like minutes till the final whistle. The final score was 1-13 v 2-9.

The seniors had the third round of the division 2 league with a game in Corballa on Saturday evening against Calry. A gale force wind blew towards the church end and we had it’s assistance in the first half.
We started strongly and lead throughout the half but lack of ball going into our full forward line was to prove detrimental in the long run. Barry Judge was most unlucky with an effort he beat the keeper with but was cleared by a despairing dive by a vigilant defender. Kevin Langan had six points scored by half time and we lead by 0-7 v 0-4.
 
The second half was a ding-dong affair with the lead changing on a number of occasions. With 10 minutes remaining we looked like we had taken a decisive lead but Paul Sweeneys thunderbolt came back off the crossbar. A minute later Calry got a lucky goal and held on to win 1-12 v 0-11.

posted 28 Feb 2011, 12:26 by Unknown user   [ updated 7 Mar 2011, 08:40 by Bart Barrins ]
The minor team had their first game of the year when Curry were visitors to Corballa on Sunday morning. This was a ding dong contest with the score changing regularly and both teams in the ascendancy at different times through the match. At half time we trailed 1-3 v 0-7, the goal being scored by James Flynn.
 
We dropped further behind early in the half but them a goal by Jason Earlis and a number of points from Stephen Curley put us into a lead. However Curley suffered a serious injury and this knocked the team for a while. Curry came within one point but a storming finish with points from McDonnell, Earlis and Kilcullen meant we won 2-11 v 1-9.
 
Team: B.Feeney, C.Judge, K.Earlis, A.Kilcullen, E.Kent, R.Barrett, E.Flynn, K.McDonnell(0-3), J.Earlis(1-1), K.Jacob, J.Flynn(1-0), S.Curley(0-5), K.Kilcullen(0-1): Subs: M.Foody,
 
Next Sunday morning the team travel to Grange for a 11am throw in.

Benson Cup Rd 2: Castleconnor 2-6 v Enniscrone 3-7

posted 28 Feb 2011, 12:24 by Unknown user
The senior team had their second outing of the year when we travelled to Quigabar on Saturday evening for the second round of the Benson Cup. We got off to a steady start but midway through the first half we scored a great goal from Brian Lynn. This was followed shortly afterwards by a few quick points from Kevin Langan, and Lynn. Coming up to the half time break Paul Sweeney finished to the corner of the net with a low drive to leave us in a commanding postion of 2-5 v 0-2 lead.
 
However the second half was a totally different story with all effort and bite seemingly left in the dressing rooms. It took us twenty minutes to register our only score in the half a point from play from Brian Curley, which kept us just in front but 2 goals in a minute, the first from a penalty and the second from a bad defensive mixup put our neighbours in command and winning with a score of 3-7 v 2-6.
 
Team: C.Gordon, R.Keane, D.Fox, T.Cawley, D.Carrabine, M.Langan, K.Naughton, P.Kilcullen, Brian Howley, B.Lynn, K.Langan, P.Sweeney, B.Judge, B.Curley, A.Cawley. Subs: F.Barrett, D.Gilmartin, M.Fitzsimons.
 
Next weekend is the start of the senior league division 2 when we have Coolaney/Mullinabreena as visitors to Corballa for a 2:30pm start. Training this week on Tuesday and Thursday at 8pm.

posted 14 Feb 2011, 09:28 by Unknown user

The senior club team had there first outing of the year when they had visitors Drumcliffe/Rosses Point to Corballa. The pitch was in fairly good condition considering the time of year and the amount of rainfall during the week. This was the first round of the Benson cup. The opening exchanges were fairly even and we scored from play from Brian Lynn. Paul Kilcullen also score in the first half but we trailed at half time 0-5 v 0-3. No more than the Irish rugby team both teams were responsible for handling errors at vital times but that was to be expected at the first game of the year. Drumcliffe got off to a great start in the second half when a shot for goal was blocked and deflected past our keeper. We ourselves had a number of goal chances with Paul Sweeney rattling the crossbar midway through the half. A number of lads made their senior club debuts, Darragh Gilmartin, Diarmuid Howley and Shane Feeney. Kevin Langan and Paul Kilcullen put over a number of points to leave us losing on a scoreline of 1-9 v 0-7. Team: C.Gordon, B.Howley, D. Fox, R.Keane, D.Howley, M.Langan, D.Carrabine, P.Kilcullen, Brian Howley, B.Lynn, K.Langan, P.Sweeney, B.Judge, B.Curley, F.Barrett. Subs: M.Foody, A.Naughton, S.Feeney, D. Gilmartin, M.Fitzsimons. There will be training this Tuesday and Thursday for both the senior and junior panels. It is time for all senior players to pay their membership remittance to Treasurer Anthony Reape.
