Galbally/Mitchelstown notes

No activity for the adult men’s team. Next week the visitors will be Fethard and District, weather permitting.

There was some scant consolation for the Irish Rugby squad and mentors when Andy Farrell was named as coach of the year after the tournament. When you consider what happened as the result of an ill-considered, badly timed, and lopsided draw, we emerged as the only side to beat the eventual world champions. It was great to see our Springbok club members celebrating their country’s victory.

Under 18.5 rugby league

On Saturday last we had the pleasure of hosting one of the most famous and iconic clubs in the country when we took on Cork Constitution in the 3rd game of the league. This was always going to be a tough fixture given that we were down 8 players for several reasons. While we scoreline went against us we still showed incredible fight and determination scoring 2 similar tries after sustained pressure deep within their 22 both of which were converted. The team would also like to congratulate our teammates from Kildorrery on their U17 hurling County Final win. Our next game is away to Cobh on Saturday at 1300.

Team from: Dan Turley, Jason O’Brien, Darragh Casey, Josh Kearney, Lorcan Murray, Gearoid Desmond, Andrew McEnaney, Jack O’Brien, Jayden Lynch, Louis Gorey, Jack Kelly, Eoghan Kelly, Will Murphy, Stephen Flynn.
