We got our senior playing season off to a great start on Saturday night with a win over Ballincollig. The game was played at home under ideal weather conditions on the well lit Pairc Ui Chinneadai. Killeagh led the way with a score from Angela Walsh; Mary O’Connor pointed another from a penalty. Aoife Walsh, Maire Smiddy, Shauna Harnedy were defending well to give strong cover to Jessica Swayne (Playing her first senior match). Noelle O ‘Donovan pointed one and Nora Walsh had a beauty of a point from out on the wing to leave us four points to no score at half time.

Ballincollig came out after half time with renewed vigor and determination, responding with three scores on the board with no reply from us. Angela Walsh struck the back of the net raising our spirit. Three frees on the trot had Ballincollig buzzing again. Mary O’ Connor struck a beauty of a point from the sideline and we were unlucky not to have netted one after hard work from Nora Noelle and Angela. Ballincollig pointed but Gillian got our last score to end the game 1-6 to 0-7 in our favour.
