Fixtures & Results

Our Intermediates played a league game, Wednesday 15th May, at home to Meelin and came out with an excellent victory, winning 4-13 to Meelin’s 1-14. Great performance and great win. They didn’t have long to rest up and were again in action last Sunday 19th May, once again at home, the opposition this time was Valley Rovers. It was a cracking morning for hurling and delivered a game of almost championship intensity. Both teams didn’t hold back and put in fine displays with a feature of the game the dominance of both back lines. Unfortunately the lads just came up short, losing out to the narrowest of margins on a scoreline of 1-12 to the Hill’s 14 pts. A win would have put the Hill top of the league after our 7 games played but the lads are still in the reckoning albeit a lot of moving parts to happen still. It’s a competitive and tight league with all teams capable of taking points off each other.

Juvenile Activity

Our U9 hurlers were in action last Thursday night against Bishopstown in Fouhys. We had 18 players and playing two matches and they put in a great show of skill and determination and also got plenty of scores on the scoreboard. Well done to all involved and thanks to Bishopstown GAA Club for travelling out and playing in great competitive matches.

Congratulations to our U13 clubmate Fionn Fitzgerald, who played in the Primary Games in the Gaelic Grounds last Sunday during the Cork-Limerick clash. A great honour for a great young man.

Thank You

Well done and thank you to the hundreds of people who took part in the Watergrasshill and Glenville National Schools sponsored climb of Corrin today. Watergrasshill GAA was delighted to be part of the event by providing traffic management as well as tea, coffee, cakes and treats in the Community Hall (thanks to the Watergrasshill Community Association for the hall). Particular credit to Mick McCourt and the McCourt, Walsh and Russell families who have already raised thousands of euros for a range of cancer and support organisations in Aileen's memory and last Saturdays Corrin climb was another huge success. We live in a great community and the warmth, caring and sense of unity in our village and community was palpable at this event.

Cork GAA Mile Challenge

Kevin Donovan visited the Hill on Monday night, to complete his mile challenge. He was met and welcomed to the club by our club President Lizzie O Leary. Kevin is running a mile in all 159 GAA pitches in Cork county and tonight was pitch 99. There was no shortage of company on the run as Kevin was joined by kids from our U7, U10, U11 & U14 teams as well as some of the Hill’s finest and fittest older athletes. Well done to Kevin who is raising awareness and much needed funds for Cork Deaf Association and Parkinson’s Ireland, and best of luck to him in the remaining runs around the County. Thanks to all for turning out to support Kevin on a lovely evening in the Hill last Monday.
