Fermoy GAA Club
The club held their annual social on Saturday last in the Grand Hotel. A large crowd of committee members, players and supporters attended on which turned out to be a great night. On the night, medals were presented to both the victorious intermediate division 3 and premier 2 minor league winning teams. Large turnouts from both panels attended and were presented with their medals by club president, John Fenton.
Also presented on the night was the Player of the Year awards, which were again kindly sponsored by Cavanagh’s Garage and the Keohane family. Ronan O‘Callaghan received the hurling award, with Jeffrey Daly receiving the football award. There could be no argument with either decision as both players had fantastic years.
Finally, the Clubman of the Year was presented to Paul O’Keeffe. This without a doubt brought the loudest roar of the night as Paul a very popular character amongst the players was rewarded for all his hard work. This award proves the Trojan work put in by Paul organising fixtures, training sessions, jerseys, equipment, etc. does not go unnoticed.
Another Solid Performance From U21s
On Saturday last, our U21s played their 2nd match of the year in the Glenville Invitational Tournament. They came up against a Valley Rovers side that were off the back of a 4 point win against Skibbereen the week previously. The game was played in treacherous conditions, which worsened as the match went on.
Fermoy started off the better of the two sides, charging into an early lead after goals from Martin Brennan and birthday boy Ronan O’Hagan inside 10 minutes. As the half wore on, Valleys slowly grew into the game and just before half time scored 4 unanswered points with the sides going in at half time with Fermoy leading on a score line of 2-05 to 0-06.
The second half began with both sides swapping points before Fermoy began to drag away after a number of scored frees. Valleys did manage to grab a late goal from the penalty spot but Fermoy ran out well deserved winners on a score line of 2-12 to 1-08. Fermoy now face a trip Clann na Gael in the next round on Saturday coming.
The team that lined out was: R Clancy, A Forde, J Pyne, P Clancy, C O’Keeffe, P Murphy, K Dorgan, G O’Callaghan, J Daly, J Ring, P De Roiste, D Chambers, M Condon, R O’Hagan and M Brennan.
Subs: D O’Carroll, B Barry, S Shanahan, T Keane, C Murphy, C O’Carroll and T Hynes.
Well Done Brian
Our very own Brian O’Sullivan was a member of the Cork senior hurling panel that defeated UCC in the Waterford Crystal Trophy on Saturday last. Well done Sull, keep up the good work.
Well done to the Loreto senior football team who won the Munster A Schools on a score line of 3-4 to 1-9 against St Marys, Mallow. Fermoy’s Abbie Scannell was also named Player of the Game.
