Lá na gClub
# CLUBFUNFEST2014

Lá na gClub took place on Sunday 1st June and it started with a mass for all Carrigaline Club members.  It was great to see the club colours on display throughout the congregation and a special blessing of hurleys took place at the end of mass, as if they weren't dangerous enough already!  The action then moved to the main pitch with four pipers leading the street league players on to the field.  All the groups gave a wonderful exhibition of hurling over the next hour.  It was fantastic to watch and the support they received from the sidelines was also very encouraging for the girls.  Later in the afternoon the U14 girls took on the U13 boys and a right royal battle ensued with the boys winning by a point in the end.  This was a spirited performance by the girls with the comeback just falling short.  La na gClub finished with music and entertainment outside the clubhouse and as the weather closed in all agreed a fantastic day was had by all!
Many thanks to all who contributed and gave of their time to make this a very successful day.

U9 Camogie
The U9 girls are back in action as they took on Douglas in Carrigaline on Thursday evening in glorious sunshine. Twenty players turned out for 3 fifteen minute halves!!  After a slow start from both teams the girls competed very well and as the games progressed  they improved which bodes well for the rest of the year. Well done to all.

Munster Champions!

Well Done to the Cork Minor Camogie Team who defeated Tipperary on a scoreline of 6-11 to 7-12 in Lattin-Cullen this afternoon. 
Carrigaline Camogie club was well represented both on the pitch and on the sideline by players Rachel O'Shea and Ellen Twomey, Mentors John Middleton and Graeme McIcer, as well as 'mascots' Lauren & Chloe Middleton and Aoife McIver


Well Done to the Carrigdhoun U16 Camogie team who won the Interdivisional Blitz last Saturday. Carrigdhoun overcame Imokilly and Carberry in the qualifiers before they met Seandún in the final. This was a closely fought contest throughout with only a point between the sides at both half and full time time. Seandún were ahead 2-2 to 2-3 at the short whistle, with Carrigdhoun goals coming courtesy of Aoibhinn Kidney and Caoimhe Coghlan.  Despite Seandún increasing their lead with a goal shortly after the restart, Carrigdhoun managed to edge ahead with points from Geraldine Collins, Kayleigh O Connor, Eimear Mc Andrews and Aoibhinn Kidney. Carrigdhoun were deserving winners in the end on a scoreline of 2-8 to 3-4. Captain Kiera O'Leary (Carrigaline) was presented with the cup, while Eimear McAndrews (Ballygarvan) had her contribution recognised when she was awarded player of the tournament. 

Carrigaline Camogie Club was well 
represented with 5 players on the team; Avril Pratt, Caoimhe Coghlan, Kayleigh O Connor, Kiera O Leary (Capt.) and Róisín Murray. Well done girls!

Carrigaline Camogie Club Gathering
On September 15th Carrigaline Camogie Club held a gathering to celebrate 21 years since its re-formation in 1992. We had an action packed day that started with the annual Philip O Doherty Memorial walk, from the GAA club, to Drake's Pool and back again.


After the walk, we walked Galway take the honours in the All-Ireland Camogie Final. Next up was a Minor challenge game against St. Joseph's Doorabarefield, of Clare. Former club coach, Ger Hoey was a member of St. Joseph's when he returned to his native Clare and his daughter Caoimhe was part of the team on the day.

Half time entertainment was provided by past players, who returned for their own challenge game.

Later in the evening, presentations were made to many past players, committee members and coaches all played a huge part in keeping camogie alive in Carrigaline over the last 21 years.

Many thanks to all who attended the day's events and helped make the Gathering such a great day. Thanks also to the gathering committee, Emily Power, Marie Scully, Orla Bower, Rosarie O Leary, Harry O Sullivan and Gillian Kiely who put a huge effort into organising the day.


Congratulations to All-Ireland Champion Ellen Twomey, who was on the Cork U-1`6 team that defeated Waterford in the final recently.
Ellen paid a visit to our Street Leagues training session last Saturday morning, where she spoke to our younger players and showed off the cup. |Hopefully some of those young girls will follow in her footsteps and bring more All-Ireland success to Carrigaline Camogie Club.

Féile Skills Star Competition 2013
Well Done to Lisa Kiely who won the Cork section of the Féile Skills Star competition. This involved ground striking skills, free taking, long puck, jab lifting, soloing and striking. Lisa came 4th in the All-Ireland Féile Skillstar competition in Rathkeale this weekend. Lisa had a perfect score in her first three rounds , where she displayed the skills of ground striking, jab lifting and striking on the run, jab lift, soloing and striking for goal. She was very unlucky to lose out on the prizes by the narrowest of margins in the final round.

We were delighted to be asked to take part in the inaugural U13 Blitz organised by Mayfield Garda Station and Brian Dillon's Camogie Club. 12 teams took part on the day, and in the qualifying stages we played Sarsfields, St. Vincent's and Bishopstown, winning all three games. This earned them a spot in the semi-final where they overcame St. Finbarr's. They were very unlucky to lose out to a strong Blarney team in the final, but were happy to come away with the Shield. There were some excellent performances from Jessica Fleming who marshalled the goal with great confidence throughout the day,  Megan Ahern and Rachel O Regan defended superbly in the full and half back lines respectively, while Lauren Middleton, Danú NíThuama, Sophie Kelleher and Mollie Barrett all made great scoring contributions during the day. Well done to all of our U-13 girls who put in a fantastic effort on a very hot, sunny day.

Our Intermediate team played Iniscarra (Cork), Myshall (Carlow), St. Vincents (Dublin) Glynn-Barntown (Wexford).
Our U16 team played Na Piarsaigh (Cork) Clara (Kilkenny) Mt. Leinster Rangers (Carlow) and St. Brigids (Armagh). After winning all of their qualifying games they were unlucky to lose out to St. Cillians (Offaly) in the final.






Well done 
to Mairead Maguire and Rachel O Shea who represented Carrigaline on the Cork U18 team who reached the Munster and All Ireland Finals.

Summer Camp 2012


This year's summer camp was a great success with over 50 girls and 6 coaches participating over the 3 days. The girls learned lots of new skills such as freetaking, sideline cuts, soloing picking . All of the girls who took part looked pretty in pink, after donning their exclusively designed O' Neill's summer camp jersey. We were lucky enough to have our own Nicholas Murphy as well as Cork's Orla Cotter come and talk the girls about their experiences of playing at Intercounty level. We were also very fortunate in the club this year to be well represented on various Cork teams, from Primary Development teams up to Intermediate level. On the final day of the camp these Carrigaline and Cork players also visited to show our young players the possibilities that are open to them as well as the wealth of talent we have on our own doorstep. 

Harry and the U-9 team that took part in the Go Games Gala 25/8/2012

Well Done to our U-18 team who beat Millstreet in the U18 League Final. 

Carrigaline racked up a tally of 5 unanswered points during the first half, but Milstreet stole 2 goals against the run of play just before the half time whistle to leave the bare minimum between the teams.

Both sides fought tooth and nail in the second half, but Carrigaline pushed ahead on the scoreboard. As the match neared the final whistle Carrigaline were the stronger unit, with all 13 players giving their all. 

After a fantastic display of Camogie the game ended Carrigaline 3-8 Milstreet 3-2
It was a well deserved victory for this Carrigaline team, as they have been knocking on the door for the past few years.  .

Team: Orla Crowley, Mairead Maguire, Leanne Fitzgerald, Ruan McSweeney, Tara O Connor, Janelle Stanton, Anna O Keeffe, Ellen Twomey, Aoife Mehegan, Toni Scully,  Jodie Meehan, Niamh Malone, Rachel O Shea, Fiona Crowley, Eimear Doyle, Emily Phelan, Yvonne Drake, Lauren Andrews.

Pan Celtic - Carlow - 2012
This year 52 members of Carrigaline Camogie Club travelled to the Pan Celtic Festival, which was hosted in Carlow. We entered teams in both the U-16 and Adult competitions.

Our U-16's started strong with a win against Salthill (Galway) but unfortunately they lost to both Douglas and Toomevara (Tipperary) and so they did not qualify for the finals.

Our Intermediate team won their first two games against Camross and Cumann Baire Setanta (both Carlow0 and were narrowly defeated in their final group game against Mount Leinster Rangers (Dublin). They were very unlucky to lose out by 3points in the semi-final against strong Myshall (Carlow) team.

Despite not bringing home any silverware, the weekend was a great success for both teams and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Carrigaline Camogie Club would like to thank all the volunteers who travelled and helped out over the weekend, all of those who sponsored the event or supported the fundraising efforts and finally thanks to Jenny Duffy and the Coiste Pan Cheilteach who organised the event so well. We look forward to returning to Carlow for Pan Celtic 2013
