Great win sees Castlelyons Camogie girls reach Qr Final of Championship

Castlelyons 2-9 : Ballyhea 1-4

This was a great win for the Castlelyons girls Camogie team last Friday night the 15th in Ballyhea as we defeated the home team to progress further in the championship this year.

Megan McNulty played well against Ballyhea.The game started with Ballyhea getting the first score going a point up but after five minutes Castlelyons settled into the game and found their stride with some lovely scores. Megan Mc Nulty, Katie Riordan Marie Daly and Aoibhín O’ Sullivan all got some great individual scores from play. While Melissa O Sullivan got a point from a 45 and Niamh Barry got a goal from a long range free and another point.  These scores saw Castleyons dominate for most of the first half with Ballyhea finishing the half with another point to try get back into the match.

In the second half Ballyhea continued to press hard to get back into the game. Both teams registered a point each with Mary Theresa Murphy getting a lovely well earned point for Castlelyons. We then put the foot down once again with some great play resulting in our forwards winning a free and  a 45 both converted by Melissa O’ Sullivan. Ballyhea then came back into the match with a goal at the fifty minute mark. They followed this with another point leaving the scores at 1-9 to 1-4 with 8 minutes to go.

But Castlelyons did not panic and defended Ballyhea pressure very well before Shannon O Sullivan got on the end of a ball across the square by Theresa O Connor to score a vital well worked goal for Castlelyons. The game ended on a scoreline of 2-9 to 1-4. A great all-round performance the girls which sees them progress to the quarter final stage against Cobh later in the month. Best of luck to them and well done on a great win

Ciara O Brien Memorial Blitz

Niamh Barry Player of the TournamentLast Friday evening we held the Ciara O' Brien Memorial Camogie Blitz n memory of our dear friend Ciara who we sadly lost over five years ago tragically in a car cash. Ciara was an active member of our Camogie Club both as a player and also representing us at county board meetings. She was ambitious, hard working and fun loving as the Blitz reflected this.

We had a fantastic evening in melting weather and with ideal match conditions. Castlelyons were drawn against the Hill in their first game. The first score of the game came from Melissa O'Sullivan to put the Castlelyons girls a goal in front. Watergrasshill responded with a goal. Castlelyons maintained pressure with another two goals from Grainne McCarthy and Louise Crowley, and a point from a free saw the Castlelyons side lead 3-1 to 1-0.

We held the lead in the second half to come out winners on a score line of 5-4 to 2-0.

St. Catherines were the opposition in the second game with both teams very evenly matched. Scores were hard come by but Niamh Barry kept the Castlelyons side in front with 2 points. We won on a score of 0-3 to 0-1 in a tough game.

In the final against Bride Rovers we lead by a point at half time, but mighty second half by the Rovers saw them come out winners on the night. Congrats to them.

A great evening was had by all. Thanks to the O'Brien family and friend and all who supported on the night. Thanks to all the teams who played on the night, as well as the Mothers who helped out with refreshments. Congratulations to Niamh Barry on winning player of the tournament which was kindly sponsored by Fermoy Print and Design.

Niamh was also the chief organiser of one mighty evening.
