Under 21 Football
On Saturday afternoon last our Under 21 footballers claimed the club’s 11th County and our first since 2012 when they defeated a fine Gaultier side in the 2017 County Final in what turned out to be an excellent game of football. Played before a large attendance in the Gold Coast, the early stages of the game were evenly contested before a well taken goal just before half time gave us a half time lead of 5 points. The second half of the game was even more fiercely contested and credit to Gaultier they fought right to the full time whistle. There were great scenes of celebrations at the full time whistle and it was most fitting to have John Elsted captain the side to victory on a pitch in the heart of Ballinacourty. Indeed as many if our older members will know the Gold Coast pitch is almost next to the site of the old Elsteds pub which was the hub of the club for many years.
We would like to thank all the players and management team involved with the lads for all the dedication and commitment they have shown over the last 12 months.  They won’t have long to dwell on the victory though as the first round of the 2018 County Championship against Comeragh Gaels takes place in 4 weeks.
TEAM: K. DWANE, C. DWYER, C. McCARTHY, J. DUGGAN, C. McCARTHY, J. ELSTED, D. McGRATH, J. BERESFORD, N. MONTGOMERY, T. LOOBY, D. LOOBY, S. WHELAN BARRETT, S. CLIFFE, S. DALY, E. KIELY.
SUBS: D. MONTGOMERY, M. COLEMAN, M. TWOMEY.

County U21 'A' Football Champions

Congratulations to our U21 footballers and management team on their hard fought and thoroughly deserved 2-10 to 0-11 victory over Gaultier in the 2017 County 'A' Football Final played at the Gold Coast this afternoon. Leading 1-6 to 0-5 at half time the lads dug deep and played some lovely football in the second half to run out winners by five points. This is our 11th county title at this grade and first since 2012.

Sympathy
On behalf of all in the club we would like to send our sympathies to the Hurney family and especially Pakie Hurney, on the death of his mother Sheila Hurney in Moycullen, Galway last weekend. Pakie has been our club treasurer for nearly 20 years now and has managed numerous club teams to County Championship honours, whilst Sheila’s grandsons have all given fantastic service to our club on the playing field where they have won many County Titles in both codes and Sheila always took great pride in their achievements.
We also wish to send our sympathies to the Gorman family and especially Mary Gorman on the death of her father Paddy Coburn who passed away this week. Whilst Mary's husband Bernard has of course been a great servant to the club Mary has given a huge amount to our club for more than 20 years. Mary is always willing to lend a hand with catering for club functions and the treasure trove of photos she has amassed following our teams for two decades or more as one of our most loyal supporters will no doubt prove to be a valuable resource in the years ahead. Paddy’s grandsons have of course won many County Titles with the club from Juvenile up to Senior Level and Paddy loved to watch the lads playing on his visits to Abbeyside.
Once again we send our sympathies to Pakie Hurney and Mary Gorman on their losses.
