Our u12 girls team wel­comed Clare Cham­pi­ons Doora Bare­field to Bal­ly­mac on Satur­day last for a chal­lenge game.

This proved a very worth­while game for our girls as the Clare side were with­out doubt the best team our girls played this year and play­ing op­po­si­tion of this cal­iber will only im­prove our play­ers in the long term. All our team ac­quit­ted them­selves very well de­spite the wet con­di­tions on the day and can look for­ward with con­fi­dence to the forth­com­ing Tralee League.

Many thanks to the par­ents who do­nated food on the day and to par­ents who as­sisted with the cater­ing your help was greatly ap­pre­ci­ated.


Churchill 1-05; Na Gaeil 0-11. Churchill nar­rowly lost out to Na Gaeil in the Bar­rett Cup Cham­pi­onship Quar­ter Fi­nal in Killeen on Fri­day evening. With the aid of a crack­ing goal from Des McCarthy, Churchill led by three points at half time. How­ever, into a stiff breeze we strug­gled to reg­is­ter scores in the sec­ond half and de­spite en­joy­ing long pe­ri­ods of pos­ses­sion Na Gaeil crept back into the game and held on at the end for vic­tory. This has been a very good cam­paign for the B’s, get­ting to the league fi­nal and los­ing nar­rowly at this stage of the Cham­pi­onship. The team con­sisted mainly of un­der 21’s, with one or two notable ex­cep­tions, and all these play­ers will be look­ing to break into the se­nior ranks in the com­ing years. A spe­cial word of thanks to our man­age­ment team of Liam Harty, Derek Nolan and Joe Rogers who showed great en­thu­si­asm and com­mit­ment to the cause through­out the year.


Churchill 3-19 Mill­town / Castle­maine 5-05

Churchill fin­ished their Cen­tral League cam­paign with a great away win last Mon­day night in Mill­town. The boys got off to a flyer, lead­ing by 5 points to no score af­ter 7 min­utes, with some great pass­ing move­ment on a tight pitch. How­ever, Mill­town / Castle­maine even­tu­ally es­tab­lished them­selves in the match and got 2 quick goals to take a some­what un­de­served lead. Be­tween then and half time, it was nip and tuck, with the play go­ing from end to end. Conor O’Sul­li­van got on the end of a re­bound to get a goal for Churchill and keep us in the game go­ing to­wards half time. Churchill had kicked some great points, but were un­lucky with some other goal chances. Half time: Churchill 1-9 Mill­town / Castle­maine 3-3. Af­ter a good half time team talk, Churchill re­ally re­sponded in the sec­ond half. Mau­rice Leni­han got in for a few goals and Hugh Leni­han, Billy Doyle and Tom Quil­ter kicked some great points, as­sisted by Ryan Hickey mak­ing some great raids up from the backs. Mill­town / Castle­maine never threw in the towel and ac­tu­ally got a few goals of their own to keep the score­line very close. How­ever, due to the tight mark­ing of our backs, they never re­ally were given the space to shoot for points. It was only in the fi­nal quar­ter that Churchill re­ally pulled away with some point scor­ing of the high­est qual­ity. This was a great way to fin­ish what was a suc­cess­ful cam­paign, given the short­age of some key play­ers for a few of the matches. Well done boys. Team: Jack Dwyer, Art O’Sul­li­van, Jay­don Deady, Ryan Hickey, Daithi Mur­phy, Billy Doyle, Hugh Leni­han, Mau­rice Leni­han, Mark Gazi, Aaron Harty, Tom Quil­ter Subs: Josh Fave­don, Don­nacha But­timer, Conor O’Sul­li­van

U12 Cen­tral League Divi­sion 1B.

Churchill 5-15 Mill­town / Castle­maine 3-05


Our B team also had a great win on Mon­day night, com­ing from be­hind to de­feat a strong Mill­town / Castle­maine team. Ev­ery­one played their part in the win, with all subs get­ting some game time. They fin­ished with 2 wins and 1 loss (to a very strong Laune Rangers team) from 3 matches, which was a fan­tas­tic per­for­mance.


On Thurs­day evening last in the Spa pitch, Churchill took on Castle­gre­gory in the North Kerry League Shield Fi­nal. Churchill got off to the per­fect start when Lily Parker struck for goal for Churchill within the first minute of the game. How­ever, this was quickly can­celled out when Castel­gre­gory struck for three goals in suc­ces­sion. Churchill replied with a goal of their own when some good work by Lily Parker found Nell Mo­ri­arty who fin­ished to the net. Some good point scor­ing by both sides left the score at half time; Castle­gre­gory 3-03 Churchill 2-04. It was the sec­ond half which re­ally came to life and was a half which Churchill dom­i­nated. They had a lot of pos­ses­sion but found it very dif­fi­cult to break down a re­silient Castle­gre­gory de­fence and were un­lucky on 3 oc­ca­sions for goals when the ball struck the posts. Churchill re­duced the deficit to a single point but Castle­gre­gory quickly broke out of de­fence to score their fourth goal of the night to leave 4 points be­tween them. It was then that Churchill re­ally ap­plied the pres­sure with some ex­cel­lent work by Lily May O’Gara, Jes­sica McGib­ney and Ali­cia Cronin while in de­fence Grace Hamil­ton and Aoife O’Brien, who scored a great point, con­stantly kept the pres­sure on the Castel­gre­gory de­fence. With only a few min­utes re­main­ing Churchill fi­nally got the goal they de­served when a long range ef­fort from Lily May found it’s way to the net. Churchill added 2 points in quick suc­ces­sion to leave the fi­nal score Chuchill 3-08 Castle­gre­gory 4-03. This was a great per­for­mance from all the girls who never gave up and bat­tled right to the fi­nal whis­tle.
