Silverware for BCS hurlers

On a bitterly cold night in Carrigaline our senior hurling team defeated Carrigaline C.S. to win the Cork Colleges Senior C hurling championship on a scoreline of 3-12 to 1-12. A well balanced BCS team went in at the break five points down but with the aid of the breeze in the s

econd half they finished strongly to take a well deserved win. There were great performances all over the pitch but Cloughduv’s Stephen O’Donoghue and Ballincollig’s Tadhg O’Connell led the line brilliantly with 1-3 and 2-4 respectively.

The triumph was a fitting reward for the effort put in by the teachers, Ciarán O’Sullivan, who captained Ballincollig hurlers to the intermediate county in 2018, Stephen Coughlan and Mark Prendergast, and club-schools coach Johnny Dwyer. They had beaten St Colman’s and De La Salle Macroom to get to the decider. 

While BCS has a small pick, there was a great spread in clubs represented in the starting 15: Ballincollig, Inniscarra, Éire Óg, Cloughduv, Valley Rovers and Gleann na Laoi. A number of those hurlers were involved when the Ballincollig school won a historic Munster U16.5 trophy in 2017, including captain Mark Kelleher who captained that team as well.

BALLINCOLLIG CS (starting 15): Evan Cunningham (Inniscarra); Jack Hurley (Valley Rovers), Josh Cotter (Ballincollig), Ryan O’Neill (Ballincollig); Sean Ahern (Inniscarra), Jack O’Sullivan (do), Seamus Lordan (Éire Óg); Colin O’Leary (Inniscarra), Stephen Lenihan (do); Evan Lucey (Gleann na Laoi), Mark Kelleher (Éire Óg), Dara Dorgan (Ballincollig); Tadhg O’Connell (Ballincollig), Stephen O’Donoghue (Cloughduv), Sean Quinlivan (Inniscarra).

Munster Final here we come!

Our Junior camogie team beat Carrigtwohill today in the semi-final to qualify for the Munster final on Saturday. BCS went in at the break two points up but a tremendous performance in the second half saw them emerge victorious on a scoreline of  10-8 to 3-6. The great work being done in the school by Ms. Stack and Ms. Hooley is certainly paying dividends. The Munster Final takes place this Saturday, 11th January, with the time and venue to be confirmed.
