CAPPAMORE GAA CLUB NOTES
Thursday 19 September:
Cappamore vs Doon
We had a great turnout of young hurlers at U8 and U7 level for another challenge match against Doon. Players are getting to know each other at this stage having played Doon three times this year. Very competitive matches and very little between both teams.
Saturday 21 September:
The U8s were on the road again for the end of year County Blitz which took place early Saturday morning in Staker Wallace GAA. Cappamore played against Newcastlewest, Monagea, Feohanagh/Castlemahon, Knockaderry, Newcastlewest, Feenagh/Kilmeedy.
Good experience playing West Limerick teams having not met them previously.
Junior A football Championship
Saturday 21 September
Newcastlewest 3-11 vs 4-10 Cappamore
Cappamore played Newcastlewest in their last group game last Saturday evening in Ballybrown. Newcastlewest opted to play with the strong wind in the first half, and in difficult conditions the game was all square at half time. Cappamore battled hard in the second half but were down two points with a few minutes to go. We scored 1-1 in the last few minutes to get over the line by two points. Final score 4-10 to 3-11. We now top the group and go straight through to a County Quarter Final in two weeks time.

U13 Hurling Championship
Killacolla Gaels 2-12
Round 3 saw us make the trip to Ballyagran to face the amalgamated side Killacolla Gaels. Without 7 of our older lads through injury and illness we had to call upon some of our younger panel members and they did not disappoint. Cappamore went at the opposition from the get go. We took the lead and held it right up until just before half time when Killacolla got a goal against the run of play. The score of the game came midway through that first half when Mal Keogh went short with the puck out to Michael Berkery who moved it first time to Evan Coleman in midfield and floated the ball to Jake Slattery who took off on a trademark run and fired the ball over the bar from almost an impossible angle. Both Andrew Caher and Chris Smith were denied goals in that first half.
Cappamore came out in the second half full of energy and our defense stood firm with Mal Keogh and Cathal Mulcahy defended the goal bravely to keep Killacolla from raising another green flag. Jake Slattery was causing all sorts of problems for Killacolla. Ben Ryan and Tommy Dillon were working overtime in midfield and allowing us to set up scoring chances. Points from Jake Slattery and Evan Coleman following some good work by Shane O’Connor brought us to within one score of the opposition. Killacolla replied with another goal and the last score of the game was a long range free from Michael Berkery. We pushed hard for goals but it wasn’t to be.This was a fine performance by a team short so many players. The players who took to the field hurled with honesty and courage.They could not have given anymore on the night.
Next up is Killmallock on Monday evening at 6.30.

Our girls were out last Thursday evening 19th September for a challenge match against Doon, which provided a great warm up for the county blitz on Sunday 22nd, held at Ahane GAA pitch. We had two Cappamore teams out for the county blitz, testimony to the great enthusiasm and interest from all these girls this season. Teams were as follows: team 1Jessica Grisewood, Éabha Ní Mháille , Daire Hayes, Lauren Heney , Sally Ryan , Kate Sheehy , Grace Ryan , Kate Ryan (Molly Dillon absent) …… Team 2 : Emily Grisewood , Abbie Mulcahy , Mia O’Toole , Harriet Wright , Anna Ryan , Saoirse Ryan, Aoibheann Gleeson , Sarah Gleeson and Aoibheann O’Dwyer (sub) .
