All Ireland Colleges Junior "B" Camogie Semi-Final Replay

Castlecomer C.S. 1-8 ; Borrisokane C.C. 2-4.

In a titanic clash which was level on three occasions there was never more than a puck of a ball  in this All Ireland Colleges Junior "B" Camogie Semi-Final Replay played at a pristine Conahy Shamrocks GAA Grounds on Friday. In the end it was Castlecomer Community School who were celebrating after a narrow and nail biting one point win over a gallant Borrisokane C.S. of Tipperary. The Comer management team of Gavin Nolan, Fiona Morrisey and Ciara Holohan were forced to re-shuffle the starting line up with captain Therese Kelly, despite carrying an injury, taking over in goals, Ellen Gunner was switched into attack while versatile Marlise Comerford moved to centre back. On the day all of the Comer "big guns" did the business but the real strength of the side was all so prevalent with the "unsung heroes" also on their "A" game. Megan Brennan came through with flying colours in a little v large clash, Sofia Kerr was always in the thick of things, Shannon Conry back to her steady as she goes best, while up front the trio of Colleen Booth, Sarah Smyth and Sarah Brennan battled for, and won, vital possession which resulted in several scoring frees. Once again Grace Mulhall was in sharp shooting form with a personal tally of 1-8, a feature of which were a number of long range frees so well converted. Midfielder Shannon Feehan was probably the most effective Comer player with a will of the wisp display both in attack and defence. This excellent team will now have their big day out in the All Ireland Final with a second shot at favourites Presentation Wexford.

 Jan 2018

  • Hard luck to our Junior Camogie team who were beaten in the Leinster Final by Presentation Wexford by a single point.  Played on Saturday last in Jenkinstown, our girls played into a stiff wind in the first half, were eleven points down early in the second half and managed to bring that lead back to a point.  Fortune however was not on their side and they must re-group now to face into an All-Ireland semi final in two weeks time.

  • Hard luck to our schools Senior Hurling team who were beaten on Saturday in the Leinster Roinn A quarter final by Kilkenny  C.B.S.  Despite a good run of form on the run into the match, drawing with St Kierans in the first round and beating Birr by 9 points in the next round, our boys never got off the ground in the first half against C.B.S.  They were 11 points behind at half time and despite a valiant come-back effort in the second half, they could never manage to bring the lead back to less than eight points.

South Leinster Cross Country

We had over 30 students attending the South Leinster School Cross Country in New Ross on the 24th of January, this was a great opportunity for pupils to get a taste of competing in Cross Country at a secondary school level. There were some brilliant performances throughout the day: Kate O`Neill, Tommy Coogan, Cathal O`Reilly and Harry Roach narrowly missing out on a place in the Leinster competition.

Huge congratulations to our Minor Girls Team who all put on a stunning performance on the day to secure a place for the Leinster competition. This will be held in Santry on the 21st of February.

The team was made up of Molly O`Dornan, Isabel Delaney, Holly Brennan, Sofia Kerr, Aoibhinn Ruane and Chloe Ryan.
