Sportsfield News

Representatives of Rockhill/Bruree Sportsfield Development Committee have bee calling to each home in the parish. They are delivering a survey which details some of the plans for the parish sportsfield and seeks your views on those plans. The committee was set up in January 2008 to look at ways of developing the sportsfield. Funding has been secured from Ballyhoura Development Ltd., under the Rural Development Programme, to do a feasibility study and needs assessment and to draw up plans based on the findings of these. It would be appreciated if you would complete the survey so that it can be collected in due course. If there is nobody at home the survey will be left and representatives will endeavour to time collection when someone is home. If you feel that you will not be available, the questionnaire can be returned to any of the following: Noel O’Halloran, Eamon O’Dea, John Harrold, Noel Brosnan, Elaine Horgan, Sean O’Connor, Gerard Murphy, Jamie Lyons, Jimmy Woulfe, Joe Carey, Bernie Sheehan, Rebecca Murphy, Mai McKiernan and Judy Tobin. Your input is very important to the project so we would appreciate if you would fill in the survey as completely as possible.
In due course, when the information on the survey has been collated, a public meeting will be held to display the results and the plans for the sportsfield.


The Rockhill Bruree Defibrillator Group will hold a Golf Classic at Charleville Golf Club on Saturday, July 16th. The entry fee is €90 for a team of three. To enter a team or for any other details contact John at 087-2701771. Your support would be greatly appreciated.

Juvenile GAA
The Under 16 hurlers had a hard fought one point win over Croagh/Kilfinny in Bruree. The outcome was in the balance right to the final whistle but our lads stood up to the test of character. Patrick Carey put in a great display in defence and others to perform well on the night were Aaron Fitzgerald and Darren Kelly.
The Under 16 footballers travelled to Fedamore and secured a good victory over the home side. Best for Bruree on the night were Rory O‘Shughnessy, David Considine and Ronan O’Halloran.
Summer Cul Camp: Thanks to everyone involved in last week’s Cul Camp at Bruree Sportsfield. Almost seventy children attended and were coached in the basic skills of hurling and football. Thanks to all the children who attended and to the coaches and those from the club who helped out during the week. The gear and medals were presented on Friday with Kiearn O’Rourke, Graeme Mulcahy and James Ryan on hand to offer advice and the hand out the medals. They, along with Stephen McDonogh, also spent a long time signing autographs on hurleys, jerseys and arms for delighted fans.

Bruree’s Junior hurlers scored a good victory over Kilmallock at Bruree in Friday night’s championship game. There was little between the sides in the first half but it was Bruree who were doing a little better. The game intensified as time went on and most of the first half scores came  in the last ten minutes of the half. Bruree went in at half time with a four point lead on a 1-7 to 1-3 scoreline. The Bruree goal came from an injury time penalty sent to the net by goalkeeper Daniel Lane. All bar one of Bruree’s first half points came from play with Patrick Deady, Andrew Sexton (2), Mark Noonan (2) and David Hogan all finding the range. David also converted a free. Kilmallock had a good third quarter but points from David Hogan (one from play and two from frees) kept Bruree a safe distance in front. Bruree came into the game more in the final ten minutes and points from play from Andrew Sexton and Mark Noonan and from frees from David Hogan and Patrick Deady saw them with seven points to spare with five minutes to go. A Kilmallock goal was quickly cancelled out when Andrew Sexton and David Hogan combined to find the Kilmallock net. A point from Michael O’Donnell and a goal from Kilmallock completed the scoring to leave the final score Bruree 2-15 Kilmallock 3-7.
The Bruree team was Daniel Lane, William Kelly, Morgan Lyons, Chris sexton, David O’Dea, Paul Fitzgerald, Michael Brouder, John Deady, Patrick Deady, John Lynch, Andrew Sexton, Donal Deady, Mark Noonan, Philip Hogan, David Hogan, David Deady, Michael O’Gorman, Christy Kelly, Darragh O’Connor, Michael O’Donnell and Sean Kelly.
