The U 14 Erin’s Own Girls Gaelic football team will travel to Wexford town
in late June to take part in Feile 2015 under the management of John Cahalan
and his mentors, Eugene Dowling, John Moore & Fiona Maher.
This is an exciting challenge for the young girls, most of whom are only
playing Gaelic for 1-2 years. The team are presently doing well in the
Carlow League and train weekly in either the Prince or Ballycomey.
The Gaelic football club has become an important part of close to 100 girls
lives in Castlecomer and surrounding parishes, ranging from U 8 up to Junior
level. They have a nice collection of silverware to boast after a short time
on the football scene, huge recognition for this must go to Andy Korff who
got it off the ground in 2012.
Erin’s Own U15 team ran out winners of a high calibre tournament held by Ballyboden St Enda’s in memory of Cian Durkin, a young playing member who sadly passed away from illness. Comer’s first match pitted them against Mallow from Cork. A great start to this match allowed the comer lads to keep mallow at a steady distance as the went on to win by 8 points. They only had 15 mins to turnaround for the second match versus Toomevara from Tipperary. This was their best game and settled in right from the off and went on to win comfortably in the end by 15 points. Comer had qualified for the final against the hosts who had earlier seen off Oulart the Ballagh from Wexford and Ballygunner from Waterford.
The final proved to be a very tight encounter and defences won the day here as the scoreline would suggest but the difference in the end was Comer’s ability to take their scores from placed balls and play against the hosts inability to do so when under pressure when attempting their shots.
As opposed to naming anyone in particular this was an excellent all round performance by all 19 players who travelled and they are all a huge credit to their club and also only the second Kilkenny team to win this prestigious tournament.
Panel as follows; Nicky Connolly, Billy O’Neill, Dan Coogan, Lee Holden, Christopher Korff, Cathal Holland (Capt), Liam Holland, Conor McMahon, Jack Buggy, Kevin Holland, Declan Buggy, Kevin Brennan, James Brennan, James Buggy, Jamie Maher, Darragh O’Rourke, Killian Hogan, Kevin Smith, Thomas Judge.
