KILMEEN-KILBREE: Kilbree junior hurlers defeated Newcestown 2-14 to 1-16 at a windswept Rossmore on Sunday morning. Kilbree played with the aid of a strong wind in the first half. Some fine scores by Darragh Coakley, Jim Shanahan and Martin O’Donovan gave Kilbree a slim two-point lead at half-time. In an exciting second half, Kilbree upped their game against the wind, and just held out to win. Kilbree’s junior camogie team travelled to Grenagh on Friday night for their first county league fixture, and came home with a 2-12 to 0-7 win. First-half goals scored by Caoimhe Murphy and Mairead Crowley proved crucial. Kilbree led 2-10 to 0-2 at half-time.

The minor hurlers beat O’Donovan Rossa 3-23 to 1-4 in Skibbereen, with Cillian Twohig, Ruairí O’Sullivan and Jason Murray amongst the scorers. Two members of this panel, Olan Murphy and Jason Murray, have been named on the Cork U17 Celtic Challenge hurling team. They will play Galway, Clare and Limerick in the All-Ireland series.

The minor camogie team lost to St Colum’s in Rossmore on Monday night in the county league. The U16 camogie girls lost out to a strong Ballinascarthy team in Rossmore. The U13 footballers were delighted to be invited to the Paddy Hurley tournament in Castlehaven on Easter Monday; the boys defeated Castlehaven and were unlucky to lose to Carbery Rangers in the cup final.

Kilbree Camogie Club will run a used clothing collection fundraiser over the next couple of weeks. Collections will be taken at the club grounds this Thursday, April 11th (6.30pm-7.30pm), Saturday, 13th (11am-1pm) and Thursday, 18th (6.30-7.30pm). Please support this most important fundraiser.
