CLONAKILTY had a very comfortable 1-21 to 0-4 win over Kiskeam at home last Sunday to continue their perfect start to the McCarthy Insurance Group Division 2 football league. Clon got off to a fast start and led by 0-13 to 0-2 at the break. They pushed on in the second period to win at a canter, with Brian White (0-6), Conor Daly (0-6), and Seán McEvoy (1-2) top scoring for the town side. Their next game against Dohenys will be a clash of first versus second, with the game currently fixed for Friday, April 26th.

The Dunmanway side’s winning start in Division 2 is over after losing at home to Valley Rovers. Dohenys started the year with four wins but they couldn’t make it five from five, as they fell to a 1-12 to 1-6 loss. The game was finely poised at half-time with Valley’s leading 0-5 to 0-4 but an Adam Keneally goal six minutes into the second half proved to be the turning point of the game. Dohenys remain top despite the defeat but the win has moved Valleys up to fourth place on six points. Their next match sees them play St Michael’s on Friday, April 26th.

In Division 4, Ilen Rovers were defeated by Boherbue 2-12 to 1-9. Adrigole moved up to second in Division 5 after a 1-16 to 0-6 win over Na Piarsaigh, with Seanie O’Sullivan netting the goal. The Beara men will travel to Millstreet on Friday,
April 26th. One of Adrigole’s Intermediate A group stage op- ponents, Gabriel Rangers, had a very impressive 3-7 to 0-10 win over Mayfield in Division 6. That’s Gabriels’ second win from two games and it leaves them secon behind Aghinagh on points difference. They’ll travel to Kildorrery on Sunday, April 28th in their next fixture. Finally in Division 7, Urhan fell to their second defeat of their campaign as they lost out to table toppers Cullen, 2-11 to 1-4. Urhan’s next fixture will see them travel to face St James’. The all-Carbery Division 7 clash between St James’ and Argideen Rangers was postponed.
