PEIL FAOI 12: Last week’s County League results ~ AdeS A: 5-10; Kenmare A: 5-10; AdeS B: 5-14; Kenmare B: 4-4; AdeS C: a bye. Tuairisc: We witnessed magnificent performances from our U12 heroes in Kenmare on Sunday evening last. The sheer class of our boys brought smiles of great joy to all supporting Rockies who made the long trip to the banks of the Roughty! An exhibition of commitment, skill and teamwork saw the A team well ahead of a powerful local outfit until two late injury time goals returned the score to parity. It would be unfair to pick out any individuals for special praise as all 13 players ar pháirc na himeartha gave stellar performances and all can eagerly look forward to their forthcoming matches. The B boys maintained their unbeaten record with another comfortable win against Neidín. Excellent teamwork, with outstanding interpassing and superb support play, was the hallmark of a top quality display and, indeed, management and players can be rightly proud of a golden performance.

PEIL FAOI 14: (i) County League results from Wednesday 5th ~ AdeS A: 4-9; Crócaigh A: 3-12. AdeS B: 5-17; Crócaigh B: 2-6. Tuairisc: Our U14 footballers travelled to Killarney to challenge the Dr Croke Club A and B teams in round 2 of the County League. Our B team was in sparkling form and won in great style…5-17 to 2-6. Bua iontach! They remain unbeaten. It was a tale of two halves for the A team! They played some delightful football in the first half and were ahead at halftime…4-5 to 1-6. In the second half the Dr Croke Club team was dominant. However, heroic defending by JoshÓ Loingsigh, Cian Ó Duilleáin and Donncha Fox kept us in contention and it was left to Man-of-the-Match, Armin Heinrich, to brilliantly point a free and earn a draw for The Rock. Thanks to all parents who drove players to ‘Beauty’s Home’ and who gave great vocal support by being ‘the 16th man’!! Beidh traenáil oifigiúil againn i bPáirc Uí Chonghaile gach Domhnach ó 4pm go dtí 5.30pm (ach amháin nuair a bheadh cluiche againn).
