Comhgairdeachas Elaine agus Mná Corcaí

White’s Cross GAA extends congratulations to Elaine Harte and her team-mates on the Cork Senior
Ladies All-Ireland Football Final win in Croke Park. This year Cork had a confident win over Kerry in
the final, as they dictated the game all the way through, to secure their seventh All-Ireland Final win
in eight years. It is a phenomenal achievement and huge credit must go to the dozen or so girls who
have been involved in all of these triumphs over the past eight seasons, and of course their coaching
team led by Eamonn Ryan.

White’s Cross is especially proud of local lass Elaine Harte who has been in goal for all of these
successes. Despite the fact that Elaine is now residing in Tipperary, and working as a teacher in
Kilkenny, she still continues to hold the number one spot in Ryan’s side. Once again White’s Cross
GAA Juvenile Club was in Croke Park on All Ireland Final day to shout on Elaine and her team-mates.
A real highlight of the day for these youngsters was when Elaine spotted their support-banners in
the Cusack Stand and made her way over to them during the lap-of-honour. Elaine’s hands were full
for this customary lap-of-honour, but not with the Brendan Martin Cup which team-mate Valerie
Mulcahy displayed to the boys – instead Elaine brought her seven month old nephew Ruairí for the
grand tour of this hallowed turf! White’s Cross GAA would like to thank all the travelling party for
their impeccable behaviour, and also Martin Flynn who drove the group for the day.

Under-age Matters

As we head into the winter months, and the weekly training sessions across the different age-groups
will move indoors to the Upper Glanmire Sports Hall, we are glad to report that the good weather
throughout September and October allowed each of our under-age teams to play a whole series of
games. In last month’s article we focused on the under 10’s who have continued their busy schedule
of games into October – playing Claughaun (Limerick), Grenagh and Aghada in recent weeks.

Our U7’s played both Aghada and Carriag na bhFear in hurling matches recently also. White’s Cross
were under pressure from the off against Aghada, but Eddie Coughlan and Ruairi Quinlan were
outstanding in defence and the Aghada forwards found it very hard to score and a super goal from
Traolach Dawson put us level at half time. Sean O’Mahony, Cathal Whooley and Jack Mehmet
battled hard at midfield sending some great ball into Kevin Reynolds and Riain Harden who both
had great performances in the forward line. Our U6’s also played Carraig na bhFear on the same
evening as our 7s and 8s in a series of mini-games at White’s Cross. This was a first ‘competitive’
game for many of these young players and they acquitted themselves really well.

Elsewhere our under 14s, who were unfortunately short a number of key players, lost out in their
football league semi-final against Dripsey in an enjoyable game of football at White’s Cross. A
big thank you to all those provided cakes and sandwiches for this home tie – a Dripsey selector
commented after to our juvenile chairperson that coming to White’s Cross GAA Grounds was better
than attending the Station-Mass!

Twenty-four hours later and a number of these lads were out again – this time in the under 13
hurling league final against Whitechurch, in a game played at Carraig na bhFear. This proved an
absolutely cracking game of hurling played before a large crowd, and whilst our lads went in as
complete underdogs against a side that had won the county championship final a couple of weeks
previous, they made our neighbours work hard for this title. All over the field these lads worked
tirelessly – Seamus Quinlan was very solid in goal, while outside him captain Johnny Noonan
marshalled matters from the full back berth. Ronan Quain and Daniel O Hara were immense in the
half-back line, while up front, Cormac O Flynn, Corey Cambridge and Sean Kelly all work their socks
off. At the end of the sixty minutes all present, both the victors and defeated, warmly applauded
both sides on the quality of hurling exhibited.

 

 

Underage

Over the recent few weeks the younger teams within the club have played a number of challenge matches against various clubs namely Grenagh, Carrignavar and Aghada.

On Saturday 6th October the under 6’s and 8’s and 10’s football teams played Grenagh in Grenagh.

U10’s football traveled to Grenagh which proved a very exciting match with the U10’s continuing their impressive form thanks to big performances from Patrick O’Hara and Conor Docherty, and the always impressive Fionn Hickey and Adrian Buckley. White’s Cross worked hard especially Jack O’Callaghan, Sean Twomey, Harry Coughlan and Stephen Whooley who put in a big performance. White’s Cross defence showed some great battling qualities of Olan Skillington, Daniel Kelleher, Harry Buckley and Victor Ugwah.  Conor Boland, Patrick Harrington and Kaelan Skillington came off the field with heads held high!

On Friday evening 12th October 2012 Whites cross pitch was a hive of activity with 2 hurling matches being played simultaneously against a neighbouring club Carrignavar.   The under 6 and the under 8 hurling teams played on the night. Match reports to follow…

On Sunday 14th October 2012 there was again a superb atmosphere at Whites Cross Pitch again with the under 7’s and under 8’s hurling team taking on Aghada.  March reports to follow….

Under 12 Update

Match 10 – Hurling league playoff vs Lisgoold, Monday September 17th

We played Lisgoold in the hurling league playoff, and while our lads gave a good account of themselves we came up short against a determined Lisgoold outfit. We were under pressure from the off, and 2 early goals conceded gave us a mountain to climb. However Cathal Quinlan made some great saves to keep us in the game, and a super goal from Sean Kelly gave us hope at half time. Our lads really upped their performance in the 2nd half. We tacked on good scores from Jordan Bransfield and Jack Stuart, and Cathal O’Flynn finished a great move to add our 2nd goal. Daniel O’Hara was outstanding at midfield and we were much more solid at the back. Our lads can be proud of a good 2nd half, and every player fought hard to the end. However Lisgoold ran out deserving winners, and we have to live to fight another day.
