Weekend Match Reports November 17th & 18th

  • November 20, 2018


Our U10 Navy Team brought a strong game to Listowel Saturday and played three fantastic matches against Killarney & our hosts. The three captains Fia, Conor M & Caoimhe each led their team well and all the players have continued to get better and better with every game.
Everyone rucked well and made some lovely passes and good tackles which led to great scores from Fia, Conor, Eddie, Cormac, Luke and a beauty right in the corner by Daniel. Alek and Conor O’S did well in the centre.
Aaron from Killarney and Seán from Listowel donned the Killorglin jersey for two matches and took on the role of Puck Warriors admirably each getting some good scores.
A wonderful day out for all capped off nicely with Ireland’s historic win over the All- Blacks.

Navy Team: Fia O’Gorman, Conor Murphy, Caoimhe Russell, Eddie O’Sullivan, Cormac Sweeney, Daniel Teahan, Alek O’Shea, Luke McGillycuddy, Conor O’Sullivan


The U12’s traveled to Listowel on Saturday and played two hugely entertaining games against Killarney and a mixed team. There were superb tries scored by Holly, Mio, Adam, Aaron, Fia and Noah. The team defended brilliantly with Dylan, Evan, Fia, Mio, Chris, Cian, Rihanna, Alex, Colm and Leanne particularly prominent. Jack, Dan, Zac, Fia, Holly, Cormac, Colm and Alex made some fantastic carries with Evan, Leanne, Rihanna, Chris, Dan, Noah and Cian strong in the rucks as always. Thanks to our hosts, Listowel, for a well organised and welcoming day.


The U14’s took on Abbeyfeale at Ballymalis for their first home game of the season. The first half was very exciting with both sides defending very strongly, Abbeyfeale scored first with the conversion missed, shortly afterwards Killorglin/Iveragh gathered and with some great forward work got the ball up the field to put Adam Casey through for a cracking try, unfortunately the attempted conversion scraped by the post. Half time came and while Killorglin/Iveragh felt they had the upper hand, unfortunately the bug that some experienced during the week reared it’s ugly head and we had to make changes with captain Enda  O’Shea having to come off. Shortly after we lost our 10 Conall and Abbeyfeale countered and scored. We found out why Abbeyfeale are top of the table as they ran in 5 try’s in the second half to win well, but our boys showed great character and learned some good lessons from this game. Killorglin/Iveragh will take those lessons into their game next week against Chorca Dhuibhne who they take on next week at home in Ballymalis.


The U16s played a very strong combined Listowel-Tralee squad who traveled with a squad of 30 players to Ballymalis on Saturday afternoon.  The match was a good and sporting display of rugby played in perfect conditions.  Tralee-Listowel scored two tries in each half to run out winners.  Killorglin played some good rugby and defended well considering the opposition.  In attack they frequently had the visitors under pressure and drew a lot of penalties, but were unable to register a score, crossing the line three times but being held up on each occasion.   Final score Killorglin 0 Listowel-Tralee 24.

With 2 games to go in Munster U16 Conference 2, Killorglin are joint fourth along with Abbeyfeale and Kanturk in the table on 1 win from 4, and play both these teams in the final rounds.

Team: Darragh Mangan, Cathal Daly, Donncha Crowley, Derry O’Sullivan, Fergal O’Shea, James Byrne (C), Joe Cronin Langham, Mike Teahan, Peadar Whelan, Rudy Glinwood, JP Courtney, Dylan McDonough, James Prendiville, Jack O’Brien, Jack O’Leary. Sub: Kevin O’Callaghan.


Our Seniors welcoming Dunmanway RFC to Ballymalis on Sunday for their 5th league game of the season. Conditions were perfect for a great game of rugby, and the teams didn’t disappoint. Killorglin opened the scoring from a well converted penalty from the reliable boot of Luke O’Shea. Not long before halftime and after some sustained pressure, Kyle Byrne touched down Killorglin’s first try of the game. The conversion was narrowly missed, and Killorglin went into half time head 8-0.
The second half brought a special moment for James Falconer, who touched down his first try….EVER! James is new to the game and got his name the scoreboard 20 minutes into the second half. O’Shea stepped up to take a very difficult conversion, just inside the touchline, and nailed it to bring the scoreline to 15-0 Killorglin. The game would finish with Killorglin the 15-0 victors, a great achievement to keep a Dunmanway scoreless and a great team spirit showed by the 19 men on the day.
Killorglin will look to bring their winning ways to Ennis next Sunday.
