Match report by Eoin Coyne Eochaill Óg 0-15 Bishopstown 0-9
A place in the under 16 Premier 2 County final was up for grabs on Sunday last, as the Youghal hurlers made their second trip of the week to Bishopstown 4G Astro pitch. Having dispatched of Araglen/Kilworth at the venue on Monday night on a scoreline of 3-17 to 2-10; it was Bishopstown themselves who played hosts for this semi-final contest.
It was the home side who registered the first score of the game in the opening minute, before a brace of pointed frees from Dylan Lyons got Youghal up and running.
Youghal quickly took control of the game in the early stages, and were it not for the difficult conditions, they could have been further in front. Jack Dineen and Cian Galvin dominating the midfield battle.
The chances continued to present themselves for the seasiders with Luke Lenane, Brian Lynch and Jamie Lenane all coming close.
Bishopstown drew level on 10 minutes and that was the closest they got to a Youghal team who, despite the elements, took scores through Jamie Lenane (2), another Lyons free & a long-range placed ball from Oisin Walsh.
Fionn Hill at left half back was strong in possession and launched attack after attack, while Ronan & Senan O’Brien snuffed out any opposition threat across the 45-metre line.
At the short whistle; it read Youghal 0-6 Bishopstown 0-4.
At the turn, the weather worsened and Youghal had the aid of the wind at their backs for the second half.
With the rain now bucketing, possession proved vital and Youghal started the livelier of the two teams. Up front, the pace of James Coyne & Brian Lynch caused problems and Dylan Lyons continued to be accurate with the placed ball.
Points from Luke Lenane & Lynch put them in the ascendancy and forced the opposition to go in search of goals as the clock ticked towards 60 minutes.
As they tried to manoeuvre opportunities, the fullback line proved equal to any chances. Marty Desmond at fullback, ably assisted by Gearoid Geary & Liam Durkin snuffed out the danger at source while Oisin Walsh was always comfortable under the high ball.
Youghal had a goal chance of their own in the last 15 minutes but a fantastic save from the Bishoptown goalkeeper denied Zack Skehan who did the right thing by pulling first time on as the ball moved across the large rectangle.
Youghal, who always looked in control, finished out the game with a monster score from Cian Galvin, and thus booked their place in the County Final on a scoreline of 0-15 to 0-9.
They now await the winners of Mallow and Shandrum with the final set for Saturday 26th of November.

We would like to congratulate our fantastic Junior Camogie squad on their achievements this year and in reaching the County Final. We are all so proud of you!
Thanks again to Mike O'Brien for the comprehensive report.
On Saturday morning 5th November, 24 brave young Camogie players made the short trip from Youghal to Pilmore to face Aghada in the SE Systems Junior B County final. This game was originally scheduled for the previous Monday in Castle Road but as had happened already in the Championship, poor weather conditions caused the game to be refixed. With availability of playing fields being a huge problem across the Country, credit to St. Ita’s for making their field available for the occasion. A combination of the good weather on Saturday morning, along with the hard work by Snoz all week to get the field in pristine condition, the recipe was there for an excellent game of Camogie. And the occasion didn’t disappoint. A huge crowd was in attendance, largely dominated by Youghal support and they were treated to a final that will live long in the memory. Aghada were the victors on the day by 3 points, but the Youghal players can hold their heads high for the courage that was shown.
The journey for both teams to the final couldn’t have been more different. It started with 15 teams organized into 3 groups of 5 teams. Youghal’s group was termed the “group of death”, made up of Inniscarra (2020 finalists), Rockban (2021 finalists), Castelmartyr (recently promoted), along with a resolute Courcey Rovers team. However, Youghal topped the group with 4 wins out of 4. Aghada’s group appeared more routine and comfortably won all their group games. The final group was topped by Bishopstown who were raging favourites at the outset to win out the competition. With an uneven number of groups, Youghal’s reward for their 100% record was an extra quarter final game versus Kilbree, who were dispatched with clinical efficiency. Next up for Youghal was Bishopstown whose draw meant that they avoided a quarter final game. With the odds stacked in Bishopstown’s favour, Youghal pulled out a huge win by the narrowest of margins, having been behind by 8 points mid-way through the second half. In contrast, Aghada also enjoyed a bye straight to the semi-final where they dispatched Inniscarra from the Championship with relative ease.
Coming into the game, Youghal were without Chloe Landers who recently travelled on a yearlong tour to Australia. Also missing was Chloe Delaney who had an unfortunate injury in training.
Back to Saturday and a star-studded Aghada team were favourites. However, Youghal had leaders on all corners of the field, many of whom are still in their teens – indeed a few the squad are still awaiting Junior Cert results! Youghal elected to play with the wind in the first half and it became clear from the outset that Youghal had no interest in reputations. Aghada missed an early free but for the next 15 minutes, the play was largely in Aghada’s half with the Youghal forwards applying huge pressure. The game was only 3 minutes in when Youghal won a sideline on the ‘45. Avril struck it sweetly. This was followed up with hard work from Leah who struck the post. Youghal weren’t giving up the move with Amy, Ciara, Jess and Hannah all putting in blocks, hooks and flicks. A ball broke in a nice position and a well-timed run from Avril (who initiated the move) resulted in a goal from Youghal. This was followed up with 2 more good goal chances from Youghal, but the tight margins agonizingly didn’t work in Youghal’s favour. Aghada dusted themselves down and got two very good points from play. Youghal returned to scoring ways in the 10th minute with an excellent point from Alex with her characteristic unorthodox strike. Amy followed up with a ’45, but there was an immediate response from Aghada with a pointed free to leave 2 points between the sides. Amy converted her second ’45 of the game and as the game approached half time, both teams again traded pointed frees to leave the game 1-04 v 0-4 in Youghal’s favour. The scoreline didn’t reflect Youghal’s dominance. The full forward line of Jess, Hannah and Leah were a constant menace to Aghada’s rear-guard. The work ethic half-forward line of Ciara Aoibhe and Amy was commendable. The dynamic at midfield was interesting with two sets of sisters marking each other, but it was the Cashman sisters of Youghal who largely dominated exchanges. The backline were no slouches either. Jenny played a captain’s role at centre-back and was capably flanked by Lesley and Ruby. The Aghada full forward line were getting no change from Rion Louise or Shauna to the point where they had to deploy players out to midfield to gain any sort of meaningful possession. Finally, Kate in goals looked assured in possession and quick off her line.
On the resumption, Aghada hit their purple patch getting two outstanding points from play within a minute to leave the minimum between the sides. Credit to Aghada for sustaining this pressure for 10 minutes, but Youghal weren’t unnerved and only conceded another point from a free before swaying the game back in their own favour. Having said that, Kate made one of her trademark point blank saves and a lapse in concentration resulted in Aghada missing a routine free. The Youghal management felt that fresh legs were needed, but it was no easy task to pick which players were to be withdrawn. Jess and Leah left the field with their heads held high and were replaced with Chloe and Eabha. Both made an immediate impact, hard work from Jenny resulting in a point from play by Chloe within two minutes of her introduction. The intensity of the game rose to a new level with neither side wanting to concede any ground. Raina came on for Hannah in a tactical switch and again, Hannah can be very pleased with her outing. Raina has been Youghal’s super-sub all year and tigerishly dug into proceeding immediately. Avril received a blow to the head with Aghada inexplicably being awarded the free to the dismay of the large Youghal following. Coming into the 50th minute, the records will show that Amy scored yet another ’45, but in truth it was much more than that. Hard work from Rion, Lesley, Jenny and Avril resulted in a ball breaking to Eabha who won a free. Amy struck the free which was won by the Aghada defence, but Ciara kept up the hard work of her teammates and forced the ’45. Louise was called ashore having tirelessly done her bit for the cause, and it was Edel’s turn to come on in her typical combative style. At this point, Youghal were leading by 2 points and it seemed like they might get over the line, with Kate making yet another excellent save. But credit to Aghada, they were determined, and won a free with only 5 minutes of normal time remaining. This free was ably converted leaving only the minimum was between the sides. However, with only 2 minutes of normal time remaining, disaster struck as Aghada struck a 40-yard free straight to the net to give them a 2-point lead. Youghal weren’t ready to give up the fight and pushed players forward to salvage something from the game. However, it was Aghada who got the next score, another point from play with the game deep in injury time. Youghal sought in vain for the equalizer, but alas it never came. Final score was Aghada 1-9 v Youghal 1-6.
This Youghal team can be very proud of their year and have the look and feel of a group who will finish the job in 2023. If this group of 24 warriors is the future of Youghal Camogie, then the future looks very bright.

Match report (with our sincere thanks) by Eoin Coyne
Eochaill Óg 2-10 Kinsale 1-10
It had been 6 weeks since this Youghal team won the Rebel Óg East Cork Football Championship against Killeagh in Ballinacurra by a single point. That win provided a bye into the Division 1 County Final where a multitude of rounds and divisional fixtures had to be played on the other side of the draw before Youghal found out who their opponents would be.
While 6 weeks is a long time without playing competitive football, the vast majority of this panel were kept busy with winning the fé15 Prem2 Hurling County final and as many as 8 were also members of the victorious minor county champions from the week previous.
Following a series of games in the Mid-Cork division and a tense win against Carbery Rangers in the county semi-final; it was Kinsale who provided the opposition for the Youghal boys on this occasion.
It’s said that winning is a habit and there’s no doubt that these Youghal lads were well versed in victory over the previous couple of months. Kinsale too though, were chasing a double of their own having won the Division 2 County Hurling Championship just last week at the same Bishopstown 4G pitch.
It was Youghal who hit the (artificial) ground running as the ball was thrown in, as Jamie Lenane started and finished a well worked move within the first 20 seconds of play. His shot, following a link up with Dylan Lyons, blazed over the crossbar by a matter of inches – with the goalkeeper rooted to his spot, the ball could have very easily rippled the Kinsale net.
Kinsale quickly equalized but Lenane again linked with Lyons on the 10-minute mark and this time, he raised the green flag for Youghal who had got off to a dream start.
Wind-assisted; Kinsale began to settle and had the Youghal defense stretched on a couple of occasions.
The hard work of midfield duo James Coyne and Jack Dineen helped stem Kinsale’s purple patch and some great runs from deep from Gearoid Geary and Cian Galvin caused Kinsale a few problems of their own.
Dylan Lyons and Jamie Lenane registered just two more points for Youghal before half time as they trailed by 1-6 to 1-3 at half time.
While the wind never won match, it would play a big factor in the outcome of this contest and as Youghal turned to play with the aid of the stiff breeze in the second half, they upped their work-rate and took a firm foothold on this final.
A run from midfield saw Jack Dineen collect 25 yards out from goal, he absorbed a shoulder from the Kinsale number 6, steadied himself and guided the ball into the back of the Kinsale net to level the game.
Eoin Kennedy, Tadgh Reilly, and Finn Coleman looked comfortable in possession and James Coyne carried plenty of ball through the heart of the Kinsale defence to set up sharpshooters; Lyons & Lenane who took some great scores, though at times, were unlucky not to find the target.
Kinsale; to their credit, continued to battle and would not go down without a fight. They too had strong runners from midfield and kept the scoreboard ticking throughout the second half as both teams traded the lead in the run-in towards full time.
Dylan Lyons had a couple of goal chances denied by the Kinsale goalkeeper, while Youghal captain Dylan Hennessy pulled off two fine stops at the other end to ensure that his side could kick on in the last 10 minutes of the game.
And that, they did. With space beginning to open up; it was Lyons and Lenane once more who raised white flags, with Lyons slotting a 45 in the dying minutes to put the Youghal boys ahead by 3.
The Youghal defence of Zack Skehan, Jack Brennan & Diego Tresero cut out the last Kinsale attack just before the referee reached for his whistle to call time on proceedings.
The celebrations began in earnest for the Youghal boys who rounded off a famous Hurling & Football County Championship Double on the first and last Saturday’s in October. Couple that with the success of the minor hurlers and it really has been a month to remember for Eochaill Óg.
Youghal Panel: Dylan Hennessy (Capt.), Cal Cashman, Diego Tresero, Gearoid Geary, Jack Brennan, Cian Galvin, Tadgh Reilly, James Coyne, Jack Dineen (1-0), Paddy Nicholson, Jamie Lenane (1-4), Eoin Kennedy, Finn Coleman, Dylan Lyons (0-6, 0-4f), Zack Skehan.

Youghal 2-14 Charleville 0-17
A collective sense of Déjà vu hit all those who made their way out the Tallow Road on Saturday, 22nd of October last. No need for the aid of Google Maps this time; the journey memorised from the week previous.
The winner of the Rebel Óg Division 1 Minor County Hurling Championship had to be decided this time round, with extra-time and maybe even penalties on the cards if the teams ended in deadlock.
Youghal, who made the hopeful trip to north Cork once more; had the belief that they could finish the job they set out on the previous Saturday.
The venue (Kildorrery) was the same. The opponents (Charleville) were the same. The weather (changeable) was the same-ish. The objective (to come back down the road as county champions) was the same.
Charleville though, were not sent the Youghal memo and they had other plans. The young men from the Limerick border started much brighter and the sharp-shooting of the DJ Collins & Gareth Gleeson in the inside forward line had them 8 points to 2 ahead after 20 minutes. It could have been even more, were it not for the heroics of Bobby Nicholson & Oisin Walsh in the Youghal rear-guard.
The Youghal nerves eventually settled through a James Murray pointed free on the 20th minute and then they got the wind into their sails when Dylan Lyons pulled first time and found the net, after an Oisin Walsh long range free that dropped into the danger zone.
Another free from Murray and a Jayden Casey point pulled the Youghal boys level at the short whistle, 1-5 to 0-8.
At the turn for the second half; it was Youghal who came out of the blocks faster; they had a goal and three points to Charleville’s one point in the first 10 minutes, Jayden Casey finishing superbly to the bottom left-hand corner of the net from 20 yards out seemed to put them in the ascendancy.
Charelville, to their credit, dug in and another 4 unanswered points brought them back into the contest. A Dylan Lyons point with five minutes remaining put Youghal 2 points up and with the likes of Liam Durkin & Fionn Hill getting on top in defence; it seemed as though the seasiders had the finishline in their sights.
An exchange of points by Casey for Youghal and Kristian O’Gorman for Charleville kept 2 between the sides but similar to the previous week, late drama ensued and 2 points for Charleville in the 4th minute of injury time sent the game into extra time.
The first 10 minutes of extra time proved to be a cagey affair and it passed by without a single score being registered; the Youghal half backline of Fionn Hill, Ronan O’Brien and Marty Desmond, along with midfielder Brian Lynch nullified the Charleville attack at the point of origin and with 10 minutes remaining; we headed for a grand-stand finish.
Tired legs and heavy ground made things difficult for both sides with 70 minutes of hurling played; so the game became as much a mental battle as it was a physical one.
It was the Youghal boys though, who kept their heads down the home straight as they outscored their opponents by 4 points to 1; scores from Murray, Casey, a monster free from long range by goalkeeper Walsh was rounded off in the 81st minute of play by Jamie Lenane who split the posts from the right wing.
Charleville had their chances too but that mean Youghal defence kept them out and as Jayden Casey put the ball on his hurley to go on a solo-run in the right-wing back position, the referee called time and Youghal were crowned County Champions, after 140 minutes of hurling.
Youghal panel: Oisin Walsh (0-1f), Noah Hegarty, Bobby Nicholson, Liam Durkin, Fionn Hill, Ronan O’Brien, Marty Desmond, Jayden Casey (1-3), Brian Lynch, Conor Galvin, James Murray (0-6, 0-5f, 0-1 65), Jamie Lenane (0-1), Luke Lenane, Chris Buckley, Dylan Lyons (1-2).

Junior Camogie Championship Semi-Final Youghal 3-6 v Bishopstown 0-14 Report by Mike O'Brien
Final v Aghada Mon 31st Oct at 1pm in Castle Road
Our Junior Camogie team travelled to Ballinacurra last Saturday morning to play a highly fancied Bishopstown team at the penultimate stage of the Junior-B Championship. This game had been originally pencilled in for the previous Sunday but was called off 15 minutes before the scheduled start time due to dangerous weather conditions. When these two teams played the league final earlier in the summer, Bishopstown were the comfortable victors. However, Youghal were determined to reverse this result and did so in dramatic fashion.
Youghal played into a strong breeze in the first half and had to work hard for any rewards. Bishopstown raced into a 3-point lead. However, Amy O'Connell settled the nerves with a well taken free. Bishopstown appeared to have physically stronger players but when they tried to exert that physicality, Youghal weren't in the mood to be bullied. The entire first half was played with ferocious pace and intensity, but by half time, Bishopstown had notched up 0-8, many of which came from what appeared to be soft frees. In contrast, Youghal had 0-3 on the board with well-earned points from Leak Broderick and Chloe O'Connell adding to the earlier tally. Indeed, this 5-point deficit could have been much bigger if it weren't for the heroics of Youghal's custodian, Kate McCarthy.
On the resumption, Youghal introduced Hannah O'Keeffe who made an immediate impact with a well taken point. However, Bishopstown hit a 10-minute purple patch where they hit 4 points, with Youghal's solitary score being another pointed free from Amy O'Connell. At that point, Bishopstown had an 8-point advantage and a neutral might have expected them to finish out the game comfortably, but Youghal's defence, who had been playing well up to that point, found another level and restricted Bishopstown to only 2 more points for the remainder of the game. The strength of Youghal's squad became a huge factor which was highlighted by the contribution made by Eabha Walsh and Raina Landers when they were introduced early in the second half. Youghal showed great resilience and bravery by pushing players forward to salvage the game. This bravery was rewarded when Youghal's hard-working forwards earned a free 40 yards out. Up stepped Amy O'Connell with a sweet strike that found its way to the net. Youghal continued to exercise the strong bench and introduced Aoibhe Daly and Edel O'Connell and the feeling was that the game was beginning to turn in Youghal's favour. Youghal's forwards continued to press the Bishopstown defenders back and won another free. Another delivery from Amy O'Connell yielded another goal and Youghal's momentum was starting to further build. However, there was still a 2-point deficit and it was Bishopstown's turn to be stubborn in defence. Yet another free was earned from the hard work of the forwards and Amy O'Connell gave yet another clinical delivery. However, Bishopstown managed to scoop it away but it only offered a temporary reprieve: good timing, positioning and a well-executed ground strike from Aoibhe Daly rattled the net. This gave the lead to Youghal for the first time in the game. Hannah O'Keeffe worked hard from the Bishopstown puckout and followed up with her second point of the game to give Youghal a cushion of 2 points. At this point Bishopstown threw caution to the wind and tried to salvage something from the game. But the Youghal defence remained in miserly form and limited Bishopstown to only one more point from a free. There was elation from the Youghal camp as the final whistle blew and preparations have already started for the final in Castle Road on Bank Holiday Monday where Aghada will present as formidable opponents. Credit to Bishopstown on their performance in the game and the progress they made in 2022, but it was Youghal's day.
Team: Kate McCarthy, Chloe Landers, Louise Dempsey, Shauna O'Connell, Ruby Kennedy, Jenny Doyle(C), Lesley Cashman, Alex Cashman, Avril Cashman, Chloe O'Connell, Amy O'Connell, Leah Broderick, Ciara Crowley, Rion Walsh, Jess Swayne.

On Tuesday 21st, our Junior Camogie team played in the League Final in Castle Road v Bishopstown. With the date of this game moving a number of times, the final appointed date meant that Youghal were missing a number of regulars. The game was played at a ferocious pace throughout. Bishopstown edged ahead early on with a number of well taken points followed by a nicely worked goal. However, this Youghal team showed excellent character and responded with an opportunistic goal from Chloe O'Connell. A number of points were traded by both sides, but late in the half Bishopstown began to pull away leaving them 6 points ahead at half-time. On the resumption, Bishopstown scored an early point, were awarded (and missed) a penalty and looked like they might pull away. However, Youghal, as they had done throughout the league, didn't give up and scored 3 points without reply to leave a deficit of only 4 points. Youghal continued to battle and began to push players forward in attempt to close the margin. Unfortunately, this left gaps in defence, which Bishopstown exploited with some good scores. Final score, Youghal 1.7, Bishopstown 1-16.
Even though the game didn't go in Youghal's favour, everyone involved can be proud of their work rate and commitment throughout the league campaign.
