BRIAN BORUS CAMOGIE

Our last u12 league game was on Monday, October 29, against Clonoulty. Our backs Nadia Keating, Roisin Murray, Andrea Conway and Jane Hyland defended magnificently throughout the game. Our goalie Lauren O’Brien was very solid. At midfield Linda Murphy and Shannon Brennan working tirelessly supplying ball to out forwards Shona Lang, Caoimhe Ryan, Roisin Condon and Zoey Lynch. On the day we had to give way to a very strong Clonoulty side. We are very proud of the girls and thank them and their mentors Kevin Ryan and Liam Murray for their commitment all year. Team: Lauren O’Brien, Nadia Keating, Roisin Murray, Andrea Conway, Jane Hyland, Linda Murphy, Shannon Brennan, Caoimhe Ryan, Shona Lang, Roisin Condon, Zoey Lynch, Ciara Morrissey, Shannon Morrissey, Allana English, Robyn Carey and Rebecca Burke.

AGM - Camogie AGM was held last Wednesday night in the Ballylooby GAA dressing rooms. A very large crowd was in attendance. Kevin Ryan opened the meeting with a report on the clubs achievements during the past year. The club has large numbers of girls in the u8s right up to u14s age groups. The highlight of the year has been the trip to Croke Park for Cumán to Croker, the u13s winning the county league, the u8s and 12s taking part in county blitz and Go games. Kevin also thanked Brendan and Dereck Coffey of Coffey Dairy services for sponsoring the u14s set of jerseys. He also thanked John Pyne for always having the pitch in perfect condition for us and Ballylooby GAA club for the use of the facilities. The following are the elected officers for 2013 - Chairman: Kevin Ryan, Secretary: Mary Murphy, Treasurer: Anne Marie O’Neill, P.R.O: Maureen Murphy, Registrar: Leslie Burke, Child Welfare Officers: Noreen Kennedy and Majella Caplice, Trainers: u8s - Paul O’Dwyer, Helen Brennan, Majella Caplice, u10s - Kevin Dowling, Breeda Burke, Valerie Moran, u12s - Liam Murray, Nora Morrisey, Ann Flannery, u14s - John Reidy, Mike Hyland, Liam Murray, Leslie Burke, Noreen Kennedy.

Presentation Of Medals - This event took place last Friday night in Ballylooby. Tom Kirwan, Tipperay Minor Panelist presented the girls with their county medals. In Tom’s speech he mentioned how great an achievement this was especially being a team from the South, he also told the girls that it is important to keep practicing and taking part in all games. After the presentation light refreshments were offered, we would like to thank everyone helped out on the night. Thanks to Tom for bringing the All-Ireland minor and Munster cups and standing for photos with the girls.

VEE ROVERS F.C.

The under 14s were away to Ballinroad (Dungarvan) in the National Cup on Saturday. Having conceded two early goals the odds were always stacked against us. A spirited second half performance by an exclusively under 13 Vee Rovers side restored some pride but the physically stronger home side ran out winners. The Juniors were at home to North Tipp premier side Thurles Town in the forth round of the 4th round of the F.A.I. Junior Cup. We fell behind to a goal from the visitors after 14 minutes but Cormac Crowe restored parity after 27 minutes. A second half penalty for Thurles proved to be a winner for the away side, despite Vee Rovers dominating possession for the last 15 minutes. All round this was a good performance and we now turn our attention to the more important business of the league.
