PEIL FAOI 6: As our season draws to a close we’ll be running off the Jimmy Barry Cup games over the next two Sundays. So, a chairde óga, make sure you are ready to roll in CAHERSLEE next Sunday morning. Just two more exciting sessions left before the Brent geese arrive at the Cockleshell for their winter holidays!
PEIL FAOI 8: (i) We had a great time on Sunday last at the Churchill blitz peile. Our fine skilful footballers took part in the Under 7 and Under 8 divisions of the Siobhán Cotter Tournament. Both teams performed very well against strong opponents from the Churchill, John Mitchel and Ballymac clubs. Thanks to Muintir Chnoc na hEaglaise for a very enjoyable day’s football. (ii) We’ll have our last Thursday evening Bracker Regan League action this Thursday at 5.45pm in CAHERSLEE. The Bracker Regan/Kevin Barry Finals, however, will take place on Sunday October 21st. (iii) Sunday at 11am games will take place as usual.
PEIL FAOI 10: (i) Thanks to the Churchill club mentors and players for their hospitality last Sunday morning. We had a great morning’s football i gcuimhne ar Shiobhán Cotter. (ii) Our final Thursday evening action will take place this week at 6.30pm. (iii) On Sunday morning next, we’ll welcome the boys of the Fr Casey Club, from Abbeyfeale, County Limerick, to The Rock. Fearfaimid fáilte is céad roimh bhuachaillí Luimnigh. We expect to have an entertaining Kerry-Limerick encounter!
PEIL FAOI 15: Our Rock Under 15s participated in the Kerry Under 15 football competition (as holders) in Caherslee last Monday evening last. Well done, boys!
CAID FAOI 16: (i) Beidh traenáil arís againn ag 5pm Dé hAoine sna Cruaghoirt i bPáirc Uí Chonghaile. (ii) We had a fantastic game and a narrow victory over a gallant Churchill side in Barrow last Sunday morning in the Bordcheantar Thrá Lí Football League (Goup 1). We led by 0-10 at half-time, thanks to the resolute defending of Luke Chester and Joey Nagle and to the dynamic Armin Heinrich who supplied ample ammunition for our brilliant naoscaire (sniper), Cian Purcell. The Seasiders, however, put in a storming wind-aided 2nd half and we were grateful for a late Gearóid Killgallon goal (díreach mar a dhéanadh a athair fadó!) to get us over the line le dhá chúilín thábhachtacha. (iii) This weekend we’ll play at home v Na Gaeil at 12pm. Give it your best, lads! Bhur seacht ndícheall! (iii) The ‘zero tolerance’ policy regarding the use of foul and abusive language towards match officials is being monored by officialdom! Our boys are doing well in that regard. Sea, tuigimid go maith gur binn é an béal atá ina thost!
