Club History - 2013

31st August 2013 

Tadhg Mac Carthaigh U14s played Castletownbere in Glengarriff in the semi-final of the county championship in wet conditions. It was an exciting, competitive match with Tadhg Mac Carthaighfirst to notch up a score. Castletownbere retaliated with a goal and it was titfor-tat for the first quarter. Tadhg Mac Carthaigh then began to pull away by four points, but again Castletownbere fought back and the half-time score was 1-6 to 2-2 in Tadhg Mac Carthaigh's favour.

The second half saw Castletownbere emerge a more determined and focused side and the spectators were treated to some superb, skillful displays throughout the team. Castletownbere opened the half with a goal and a point, but Tadhg Mac Carthaigh were not to be outdone and they levelled the scores. Castletownbere began to pull away; they dug deep and went on to win on a final score of 6-8 to 3-12. 

3rd August 2013 Ladies face Rosscarbery in opener

The Tadhg MacCartháigh ladies play their opening game in this year’s junior B county football championship this Friday, August 2nd, at 8.15pm, in Aughaville when they take on Rosscarbery.

The Caheragh U16 girls recently travelled to Rath to take on Ilen Rovers in the county league. Despite a robust opening by the visitors, Ilen Rovers were too strong and ran out convincing winners.

On Saturday, the girls continued their league campaign, this time travelling to Dunmanway. The game was a real humdinger with very little between the sides throughout but in the end TadhgMacCartháigh prevailed, 4-7 to 4-3.

The Tadhg MacCartháigh ladies host a family BBQ on Sunday, August 11th, from 2pm in the Coachman’s Inn. There’s live music, a bouncy castle, sumo wrestling, Jane’s creative corner and lots more, so a great day is guaranteed.

14th September 2013 Junior footballers just one game away from successful defence

Tadgh MacCartháigh’s junior A footballers are back in a second successive South West final, after beating St Oliver Plunkett’s (3-10 to 1-5) in the semi-final, under lights in Dunmanway on Friday night.

A repeat of the 2012 final, which Caheragh won, it was an impressive win for the champions, who meat St Colum’s in the final.

The team management knows that a huge improvement will be needed in the final if they are to retain the title for the first time ever.

No date has yet been confirmed for this attractive game.

Next Sunday, the Carbery senior footballers take on champions Castlehaven in the county SFC semi-final at Páirc Uí Chaoimh with a number of Caheragh players involved with Carbery.

Juvenile section

On Saturday week last, the U13 hurlers lost to a strong St Mary’s in the championship final in Dunmanway. Despite being well beaten, this team has turned in some great displays during the year.

The U16 footballers take on Glengarriff this Friday in Aughaville in a league game, at 6pm, while they have been drawn against Muintir Bháire in the championship.

On Monday evening last, St Patrick’s minor hurlers lost to Ibane Gaels, 3-8 to 0-10, in the B championship final at Rossmore.

Celebrating first West Cork title for U14 girls

On Saturday last, October 6th, the Tadhg MacCarthaigh U14 girls made history by clinching their first ever West Cork championship title after a hard-fought victory over Keelnameela.

A large crowd witnessed an absorbing contest that flowed from end to end. Holding a four-point advantage at the interval, the Tadhg Mac-Carthaigh girls were rattled when Keelnameela scored an early second-half goal to leave the bare minimum between the sides. The Caheragh girls rallied again to extend their lead only for Keelnameela to reel them back in with another goal. In the end, however, the Caheragh girls proved too strong for gallant Keelnameela and were crowned champions on a score of 3-7 to 4-1.

Congratulations to the girls and to their hard-working trainers, Gillian and Rory O’Neill, as well as Aisling O’Flaherty and Robert O’Flaherty.
