Weekend Matech Reports March 30th & 31st 2019

  • April 1, 2019


Our U8’s traveled to Castleisland on Saturday in their final match of the season. Our numbers were small but we mixed up the teams and we had a great game with the hosts. It was great to finish off our matches this season with the sun at our backs. Well done to all the players that played so well today. We have 2 more weeks training before we draw the rugby season to a close.


Our U10’s teams played two games each against a strong Castleisland side. The recent matches have really shown us the progress they have all made since the start of the season. Nice passes leading to tries and rucks were much better. A few of our own played with Castleisland to even up the numbers and did very well. A great morning enjoyed by all.

Team 1: Myles Cahill, Daniel Malone, Liam Byrne, Cillian McGillycuddy, Daniel Coleman, Darragh McKenna, Seán O’Gorman, Daniel Teahan, Oran Sheahan & Adam Conway

Team 2: Pat Costello, Charlie Foley, Connor Murphy, Luke McGillycuddy, Caitlin McKenna, Fia O’Gorman, Eugene Mulligan & Mikey Hynes


Killorglin/Killarney welcomed Abbeyfeale to Ballymalis on Sunday March 31st for the semi final of the West Munster Cup. On a great day for rugby the game couldn’t be tighter with the score standing at 0-0 at half time. Abbeyfeale had looked the most dangerous in that half but were stopped in more than one occasion by full back Gary Randles. Otherwise both teams have it hell with no one breaking the dead lock.

The second half was much the same with both teams making mistakes and conceding penalties. 10 mins into the second half Abbeyfeale attacked from their own half and broke the defensive line, the fullback was up to the task again but with him tied into the ruck the Abbeyfeale scrum half saw that there was no one home and when he picked from the ruck he cleverly chipped over the defensive line, re gathered, wrangled out of a couple of tackles and reached for the line scoring under the posts. Luckily for Killorglin/Killarney the kick was missed. The game stood at 0-5 until 3 mins remained when Jamie O’Leary received a pass wide on the left. He took on and beat the last defender to score in the corner. A difficult kick for Jack Evans and despite a great effort he was unlucky with the ball just going over the posts (but like most kickers he was sure to was over) with no time left Abbeyfeale kicked off. Killorglin played to get the final score but with the ball knocked on after a number of phases the game was over. A great game of rugby with both teams giving their all and the replay will surely be the same. Well done to all
