County League Final v Bishopstown in Bishopstown December 9th 2012
Carrigtwohill 6-10 Bishopstown 3-5

On a good dry day in December it was league final day for or lads we set out to win this league early this year and that we did to finish off what was a great year for this under 14 team winning the Paddy Whelean tournament in Lismore, the County Final and now the league too.


We started off fairly shakey, missing scores that we should be getting but we put that down to lack of games in reacent weeks. Conor Keagan soon put an end to that, when he hit the net just after the 10 min mark but Bishopstown answered back with one in our net. They were well up for this one and we wrere getting nothing easy. Oliver Baverstock put over 2 65s and that setteled us. Daire Crotty stood up to the mark then getting 1-2 from cente forward but then they came at us again getting 2 more goals and a few points. It was hard going and just before half time Daragh McCann banged one in but only leading by 3 points.


We had a talk at half time and we said it was going to be or last time in a dressing room together and that we were going to give this one good go but fellas would have to stand up to the mark and that they did. Gearoide O'Learly now lording it at full back, Bav at center back and with or midfielders now on top we felt we had this game in the bag if our forwards could fire and that they did. Conor O'Mahony captain was realy working hard and leaving off some great ball that we got scores from Gossey hit the net after 15 min Keagan again got another and with Crotty , Bav, S O'Sullivan and Gossey all getting points this was all over as a game and finished off a great year for us. The future is bright in Carrig.




County Final v Eire Óg in Pairc Ui Rinn July 1st 2012
Carrigtwohill 4-9 Eire Óg 1-6

County final day today for our under 14 team, a great achivenment for the lads and the club.

We started well with a point from Conor Keegan. Our half forward line of Jamie Long,

Oliver Baverstock and Sean O'Sullivan working there boots off but we failed to score out of 9 attempets all going wide. Shortly after the 12 min mark Oliver Baverstock hit the back of the

net and that setteled us. Dara Crotty and Brendan Twomey in the middle of the pairc covering

the length and breath of the field with Crotty getting another point on the board after 15 min.

That followed by another goal from Baverstock that realy put us in the driving seat. Eire Óg

came at us then and got 3 unanswered points. Our half back line Conor O'Mahony,

Shane Ryan and Cormac Horgan hurling out of there skins and delivering good ball to

our full forward line we got another point from Keegan and one from the skill full

Liam Gosnell. Just before half time Keegan rattled the Eire Óg net again so we were

well in control up to then.



The second half started Eire Óg got a point followed straight away by a goal the pressue was back on, Ronan Donnelly in between the posts pulling off a great save and grabbing some good ball out of the air. Our full back line Ryan Conroy, Gearoide O'Leary and Conor Harte seeing alot of ball now cleared there lines very well with loads of bottle and heart. We stood up to this challange well like we did all year showing that we could come out of any game on top. More points from Keegan 2, Baverstock and a free from Crotty ment we were nearly there. Shane Ryan hurling unreal at centre back landed a good ball to Gosnell who once again hit the net. Eire Óg got another but with just ten min left Daragh McCann and the pass of the day, Daragh again to Twomey we had 2 more points on the board. It was Carrig's day and no one was going to stop us. That was the way we trained and played all year another. Under 14 county was coming home.


We also used 5 subs Ross McGrath, Philip Dorgan, Kevin Coady and GrahamMuryairty who played a big part getting us to this county final. Tom O'Brien and Killian Carty Blake did not get on but played very well for us during the year and not forgetting our number 1 all year Billy Manning who was on hols.

All the hard work has paid off now and what a bunch of lads they are they gave everything a 100 percent all year.

County Semi Final v Aghada in Carrigaline on Saturday June 16th 2012
Carrigtwohill 5-18 Aghada 3-8

There was a strong wind in Carrigaline for our semi final and we thought it would be a game of two halves.
We started well but could not use the wind to our advantage and had 12 wides before the break. We still went in leading by three points though, 1-6 to 1-3.

We started the second half at a blistering pace with scores from Conor Keegan, Liam Gosnel and Darragh Crotty, which gave us a commanding lead into the strong wind. Our six backs Ryan Conroy, Oliver Baverstock, Conor Harte, Cormac Horgan, Shane Ryan and Conor O Mahony and our goal keeper Billy Manning under severe pressure but they coped very well. We gave a great account of ourselves with our two under 13 lads Brendan Twomey and Liam Gosnel running riot in midfield.

Goals from Conor Keegan, Darragh McCann, Darragh Crotty and Kevin Cody gave Carrig a strong hold of the game and went on to win in commanding victory of 5-18 to 3-8.
With every player on the panel getting game time we are now playing Eire Og in the U14 County Hurling Final.
Venue and time to be decided.



County Quarter Final v Carrigaline in Delanys on Saturday 9th June 2012

Carrigtwohill 8-11 Carrigaline 3-8

Quater final day for or lads on a lovely warm day in Delanys. We started well getting off the mark with a goal from Dara McCann, points from Liam Gosnell, Daire Crotty and another goal from Conor Keegan. We were in control until we lost a player to a sending off offence after 20 min. Carrigaline came at us then scoring 2-2 before half time. We went in at the break still leading but down to 14 men.


We had a chat to the lads and changed the team around to our strenghts, what a second half. Our defence was unreal, Billy Manning pulling off superb saves. Ryan Conroy putting his body on the line Oliver Baverstock now clearing some ball at full back and man of the match Conor Harte was unreal. Sean O'Sullivan now in at center forward running at the Carrigaline defence and we got great scores from that again every puck out Cormac Horgan and Conor O'Mahony were under it hitting hard and clearing ball. We finished strong again with Jamie Long covering some ground at wing forwar, he was unreal. Dara McCann again getting on the score sheet and banging in goals at full forward Daire Crotty was superb.

Job was done, we are now awaiting Blackrock or Aghada ,

A great evening for a hurling game with the grass short and the ground hard the home side got off to a great start going 3 points up after 15 min on a score of 1-3 to 3 points with Blackrock having the wind advantage they took it and lead at the break by 4.


Conor Harte playing super at wing back also Ross McGrath at number 4 hurling well we came into the game with young Breandan Toomey flying at wing forward getting great scores. Inside Conor Keagan going well got 2 great points while Kevin Codey and Oliver Baverstock getting savage goals. We pulled away in the end but the score line did not reflect on the game. All our team got game time. Carrig a.b.u.



Challenge v Douglas in Carrigtwohill on Thursday 17th May 2012

Carrigtwohill 8-17 Douglas 2-3

Our lads were on fire from the word go on. A massive evening for hurlin,g from our number 1 Billy Manning to number 21 we played very well. We hounded in packs, hooked and blocked. We were very hungry. Our forwards getting some fine scores. We were in control after 15 min. Great effort from the lads, with just one more game left before championship or preperation is going well.

Carrig a.b.u.




League v Aghada in Rostellen on Saturday 5th May 2012
Aghada 1-9 Carrigtwohill 8-16

After starting well both or backs and forwards were on top scoring 3-4 in the first 15 min. We went on from there well in control throughout, our backs fighting for every ball and our forwards getting some lovely scores. We had 19 players going down and each player getting plenty of game time.



Lismore Tournament on Saturday 10th March

This was the first game played in the Lismore tournament. The lads started strong and were comfortably ahead at half-time.Killeagh were much stronger in the second half and we were lucky to hold out for a three point win.


The second game was played against the hosts. Lismore completely over-ran us in the first half, as we seemed to be stuck to the ground.we did not score in the first half and were behind by a huge score at the break. The lads put in a great second-half,but had too much to do to get back at Lismore. Final score was 5-7to3-5 to Lismore.


Our opposition for the last game were Fr. oNeills. Carrig played very steady and were six points up at the break. They tagged on a few more points in the second half and won out on the scoreline of 2-7 to 0-1.

Our two victories put us into the final against a strong and fancied Lismore. This was a tight and tough game from the start with both sides giving it everything. Carrig were three points ahead at the break and knew they had a huge challenge ahead in the second half.Scores were exchanged throughout the second half,and with five minutes to go the lads were three points ahead. Then Lismore got a quick goal to draw the match. They added another two points in the final minutes.With a minute left to play Carrig pucked out the ball and the mid-fielders moved it into the forwards. There was good inter-play between the forwards and they finally got their reward with a goal in the final seconds to win by a single point. 4-3to3-5 to Carrig. Well done to all the panel as they never gave up and deserved their victory. The lads would like to thank Lismore for the invitation and the enjoyable day on and off the field.




Challenge v St Michaels' Dublin on Saturday 17th February

Carrig 5-22 St Michael's 1-6

The team have put in a huge effort from the start of the year and it showed today with every player getting game time, we played a inner city team from Dublin who stayed down for the weekend thanks to all parents who put the lads up. Our hurling was very good for only our second game of the year first touch, striking and or work rate was very encourageing. I would like to thank JJ O'Mahoany and the club for the game. Overall we were always in control and a great start to the year. Carrig a. b. u.

League v Aghabullogue in Coachford on Saturday 6th October 2012

Aghabullogue 7-12 Carrigtwohill 8-6

This was our second bus journey down to Coachford this year. The game proved to be just as entertaining and closely fought as the championship with a total of 15 goals scored in all! Unfortunately we were narrowly beaten again on this occasion as lady luck was clearly not on our side. Due to a number of reasons including lack of interest and injury we were without many of our up to the age players. This meant that we travelled with the bear fifteen to this league semi - final. Unlike our last encounter, this time we got off to the best of starts scoring 1-2 without reply. We started with C Keegan in midfield and C O' Mahony in full forward and this was paying dividends. Keegan's aerial dominance was evident while Mahony was making some intelligent movement and passes in the inside line. Aghabullogue began to stamp there mark shortly however and hit a purple patch of their own. We went in at half time all square on a scoreline 4-4 apiece.


As a result of injuries we were forced to make some positional changes at half time. This was no easy task with no substitutions to call upon for back. Oliver Baverstock who was present on the day was eager to make an appearance but as he had a sprained ankle we couldn\'t take the risk of him doing further damage. The roles were reversed at the start of the second half with Aghabullogue dominating. It took us a while to settle after the changes but when we did we started to control matters once more. Darragh McCann was playing a blinder at right half back - attacking the ball with pace and out in front of his man. In midfield Brendan Twomey was giving it everything while Cormac Horgan was breaking down many an attack at centre back. Our strength all year has been getting goals, scoring a further four in the second half after some great team play. If it wasn't for some excellent saves from Tom in goals the game would have been over mid way through the second half. In the end the game could have gone either way as we searched for late goals, hitting the crossbar and the post on two separate occasions.


This brings our season to a close. Many thanks to all involved including parents who travelled to matches and brought their sons down to training. As coaches we think the lads have improved their football skills and tactics throughout the season, specifically in the use of their left and right kicking.


Panel: T O' Brien, R Conroy, C Horgan, K Coady, S O' Sullivan, B Twomey, P Dorgan, C Keegan, D Crotty, G O'Brien, L Gosneal,

League v Kinsale in Kinsale on Wednesday 4th July 2012

Carrigtwohill 6-10 Kinsale 4-10

This match was played with the sun shining but heavy underfoot conditions. The lads put in a good performance and it was a great sign of the character of this team to bounce back from a narrow two point loss to Aghabullogue in the championship a couple of weeks previous.

Sixteen of our panel travelled to this match and we got off to the best possible start when some nice team play put Conor Keegan through to bury the ball to the back of the Kinsale net. Conor has been doing this for us all year off the left and now he\'s beginning to improve his shooting off the right leg! We defended well throughout the first half with Gearoid O' Leary solid at full back and Ryan Conroy attacking the ball as always. Up front we were always a threat and when another one of Conor's shots hit the crossbar, David Grimmes had himself in the right place at the right time to finish to the net. Darragh McCann has been improving with every game this year and he slotted over a beautiful score in the first half from his right foot.


The second half was a similar story to the first with plenty of our lads impressing including Gary O' Brien who worked tirelessly throughout. In the last ten minutes however we seemed to tire a little and Kinsale began to get on top. We were able to with stand their attacks with some great saves from Tom O' Brien and solid defending from Conor O\' Mahony and Kevin Coady.

We have won all our league games to date and this now places us in a semi final spot. This is what the lads at least deserve and have earned after all their efforts to date.

Finally congratulations to the lads and their mentors on winning the u14 hurling county final. This team has huge potential in both hurling and football going forward once they stick together and keep up the efforts.


Panel: T O' Brien, R Conroy, G O' Leary, K Coady, C O' Mahony, O Baverstock, R Donnelly, D Crotty, S O' Sullivan, B O' Leary, C Horgan,
P Dorgan, C Keegan, D Grimmes, D McCann, G O' Brien.




Challenge v Carrigaline in Carrigtwohill on Tuesday 19th June 2012

Carrigtwohill 5-6 Carrigaline 5-10

We had a hastily organised challenge game on a fine Tuesday evening against Carrigaline in Carrig. We started very well, in spite of poor numbers due to holidays and injuries. Our play was very good, and we were leading well coming in to the break. A number of positional changes were made early in the second half, with an eye on the Championship on Thursday against Aghabollogue, and this showed. Our concentration waned towards the end, and Carrigaline recorded a well earned victory.

We are all looking forward to the Championship now.



Challenge v Mayfield in Carrigtwohill on Thursday 10th May 2012

Carrigtwohill 5-8 Mayfield 6-15

This was lively high goal scoring challenge match played against Mayfield in dry but windy conditions at Pairc Seamus de Barra. It was a very beneficial exercise for our lads as we learned a lot from playing against a city team who play in the Central Premier 2 grade. We got off to the best possible start with a cracking goal from David Grimmes. Mayfield then enjoyed a purple patch but the lads overcame that and with some nice passages of play we added a few scores including one off the left boot of Ben O'Leary.

Our defence tightened up in the second half with Oliver Baverstock going into goals and Tom O'Brien moving to centre back. Gearoid O'Leary put in some very brave tackles while Ryan Conroy and Darragh McCann worked as tirelessly as always. Up front Daire Crotty was making some great runs resulting in three goals, two from his left and one from his right leg! Ronan Donnelly really got into the game in the last 10 minutes with some very intelligent movement off the ball in particular.
Overall the lads put in a great effort with plenty of positives to be taken along with areas which we know we can improve on. Finally a special thanks to those who put up the nets for us and Darren Burns who refereed the game.


Panel: Tom O'Brien, Gearoid O'Leary, Kevin Coady, Conor Keegan, Conor O' Mahony, Philip Dorgan, Oliver Baverstock, Sean O'Sullivan, Gary O'Brien, Cormac Horgan, Ben O'Leary, Daire Crotty, David Grimmes, Darragh McCann, Ryan Conroy, Ronan Donnelly.



Feile v Micheál MacCarthaighs in Buttevant on Saturday 31st March 2011
Micheál MacCarthaighs 5-14 Carrigtwohill 5-8

Our Feile game was held in good if windy conditions in Buttevant on Saturday evening. We had 18 players, and all were up for the game. We didn't start well and were two goals down very quickly. We settled down and tacked over a few scores, but the opposition were very clinical and at half time we were behind by 15 points. We had the wind in the second half and the lads took great advantage of this. We ran in a few goals, and our spirits were raised. We rallied well, showed great Carrig strength, and out-scored the opposition by nine points in the second half. We were unlucky in the end that the clock ran out on us.

All the mentors we very proud of the effort and fight shown by the players this evening.



League V Inniscarra in inniscarra on Saturday 3rd March
Inniscarra 3-3 Carrigtwohill 4-6

We travelled to Inniscarra with just the bare fifteen players for this, our third league game. The lads started well and were six points up after five minutes. Conditions were heavy and wet but the game was played at a fast pace with lots of fine touches on both sides. We were a few points up at half time, but knew we would have a tough second half.


Inniscarra started the second half well and were even with us after fifteen minutes. The lads were beginning to tire, but we had no subs to bring on. We made a few positional changes that worked well for us. We rallied again and held on to win by six points. All the lads deserve great praise as they put in a huge effort for the whole game. A final thanks to the lads who played another game earlier in the day.

Team: Tom O'Brien, Daire McCann, Shane Ryan [1-0], Ryan Conroy, Conor O'Mahony [0-1], Oliver Baverstock [0-1], Brendan Twomey, Sean O'Sullivan, Daire Crotty[1-2], Gary O'Brien, Ronan Donnelly, Cormac Horgan, Philip Dorgan[1-1], Conor Keegan[1-1], Ben O'Leary.



League V Cobh on Staurday 18th February
Carrigtwohill 7-10 Cobh 3-4

Our lads started slowly, and were six points behind after a few minutes. Even though they were playing into a strong wind they settled well and led by 6-5 to 2-4 at half time. Once again our subs, Kevin Coady and Ben O'Leary, made a strong impact when they were brought on. After some fine passages of play throughout the game the lads won on a scoreline of 7-10 to 3-4.
Well done to all the panel, and a speedy recovery to the lads who were sick on the day.

Team: Ronan Donnelly, Darragh McCann (0-1) , Gearoid O'leary, Ryan Conroy, BrendanTwomey (0-1) Oliver Baverstock, Conor O'Mahony, Sean O'Sullivan (1-0), Daire Crotty (2-1), Conor Hart (0-1), Liam Gosnell (2-1), Jamie Long (0-1), Gary O'Brien, Conor Keegan (1-3),
