Kilcoole GAA Club Notes
The intermediate footballers played Ashford over in the field last Friday. Ashford always give us a hard game and this was no exception. We started well with Kris Farrell scoring a great point. Stephen Coughlan scored some wonderful scores from frees. When Eoin Keddy played a beautiful flighted ball to Danny Kavanagh, who in turn hit the back of the net, things were looking good for us. Ashford however hit back with a goal of their own. An early second half goal from a penalty gave Ashford the lead. From here on in, it was point for
point and in the end both teams had to be content with a draw on a score line of Kilcoole 1-11, Ashford 2-08. Kilcoole scorers were Stephen Coughlan 0-7, Danny Kavanagh 1-03 and Kris Farrell 0-1.
The club would like to wish players Peter McKenna and Ciaran Byrne the very best of luck as they are about to depart Kilcoole shortly. Peter has being one of our most consistent performers over the years and Ciaran was a wonderful juvenile player with the club. Best of luck lads for the future. Canada and Australia’s gain are Kilcoole’s loss. Hope to see you both back playing in the Green and Gold again someday. Thanks lads for your service to the club and best wishes in your new adventures.
The Junior B footballers enjoyed a good win over Kilmac last Thursday over in the field. It was pleasing to see a big panel of players turn up. It was a close enough encounter until Kilcoole got a second half goal. I will leave it up to Dinky or Coco to decide who actually scored it. Barry Mason also pulled off a couple of good saves also. The introduction of Dan Hannigen Rooney in the second half worked well, with Dan scoring 2 good points, which gave us a bit of a cushion and we eventually won out on a score of 1-09 to 1-02. Our other scorers were Stephen Coughlan 0-4, Martin Gregory 0-1, Patrick “Pecker” Woods
0-1 and Liam Dutton0-1.
U12 Hurling: Our under 12 hurlers got off to a good start in the league tonight against a spirited Arklow side. We were lucky that the weather cleared up as so many recent fixtures have had to be postponed. We really appreciate the support the lads received from parents this evening and we can now look forward to our next game against Newtown.
