DOUGLAS GAA SENIOR
By Pat Harrington
Douglas Reverse Championship Result To Win League Title.
Douglas and Mayfield played in the Minor 2 Hurling league final at Redmonds. The sides met last August when the Northsiders won the tie by 9 points. The Douglas performance was very assured in the first 30 minutes. Douglas were dominant in all sectors of the pitch, each ball contested with great intensity. First to every ball, Douglas hunted in packs, each ball struck with precision each pass placed perfectly. The Northsiders hardly got inside the Douglas 45 metre line for twenty minutes. Niall Heffernan led the forward line well and was ably assisted by Fionnáin OSullivan and Brian Loughlin.If there was any criticism of the Douglas performance in the first it would be that they didnt put more scores on the board. Douglas led at the break 1-8 to 0-2.
The Mayfield made wholesale changes at the interval and these changes created the desired effect with Douglas struggling to keep pace. Two goals brought the Northside club to within two points with eight minutes to go. Douglas did create chances during this period but failed to convert them. A Paul Kelly goal appeared to clinch victory for Douglas but back came Mayfield with a goal to keep them in the game. But it was to be Douglas day, going on to victory on a scoreline of 2-12 to 3-7. Richard Harris, David OConnor and Jeremy McGrath were others to impress. Afterwards the cup was presented by Brian OLoughlin.
Under 16A Premier Grade Football.
Douglas overcame the challenge of Glenville in Carrigtwohill. This was a very young Glenville outfit. In the opening five minutes David Dorney made two vital saves, one of these from a penalty. After these two narrow escapes, Douglas proceeded to give the East Cork lads a lesson as they piled on the scores, leading 4-9 to 0-1 after twenty minutes. Stephen Bermingham was the scorer in chief, notching up three goals and four points in this period. I am sure the forwards will agree that they got quality supply of ball during the first thirty minutes. Douglas mentors introduced a number of substitutes at the interval. Glenville battled valiantly against the odds. Final score 6-15 to 3-8.
Seamus Crowley, Barry Fitzgearld and Ray Keating were others to impress. The County semi final versus the Barrs will be played next weekend see notice board for details.
Douglas overcame the challenge of St. Finbarrs in the semi final of the league. The Douglas boys proved much too strong for the Togher outfit on the day. The team will now play either Passage or Belgooly in the final.
Congratulations to the Douglas Under 12 Team who defeated Blackrock to win the City Hurling League recently while the footballers also defeated Nemo by a point in the football league last Sunday. The Camogie deserve mention for their defeat of Glen Rovers in the Final.
DOUGLAS GAA UNDERAGE
By Donie Harris
Under 12 Football League Semi Final.
Douglas played Nemo in the Under 12 F/L Semi Final last weekend before a large that were not to be disappointed. Fresh from their victory over Blackrock last weekend, Douglas were really up for this game. Douglas started well taking the game to Nemo. It was end top end football where both teams were playing well. Eoin Hickey in goal was having a great game as were Stephen OConnor and Richard Murphy in defence. Half time scores 0-3 to 0-3. It was anybodys game in the second half. Douglas came out and hit over two points without reply. Nemo knew the game was slipping from them and upped their game to level matters. A few switches by Douglas mentors proved vital. One minute left on the referees watch saw Douglas behind by one point. The Ball was kicked into the Nemo square where Colm Lucey was first to the breaking ball. He was fouled in possession and up stepped Jamie Drennan to level the score. Douglas thought it was going to be a draw but the referee played on. From the kick out the ball broke in mid field and first to react was a Douglas player who kicked the ball back into the Nemo square. Again Colm Lucey was on the ball and fouled again and then to take the free was Jamie Drennan to win the match. A real pressure kick from a difficult angle. The pressure was on but to our delight the ball sailed the bar. From the kick out the referee blew the whistle and Douglas won on a score line of 0-7 to 0-6. Mentioned a few players but to be fair all the Douglas players played their part. We now play Carrigaline in the final a date to be announced and a match not to be missed.
Under 13 Football Championship.
Douglas played Bishopstown last weekend in the Under 13 Football championship. A game that Douglas had to win to prolong their season. But it was not to be. Fielding our strongest team to date we were sure that we would Bishopstown a good game. We started well where our backline were playing at their best. Jason Martin OSullivan, Padraigh Quinlan and Cian Meade were not giving anything away. Richard Kingston in goal did nothing wrong and could not be faulted for the goal. Ian Bermingham opened our account by a point. Colin OSullivan added another 2 points and that was the end of our scoring. Bishopstown went on to win the match by 1-5 to 0-3.
Under 15 Hurling League Semi Final.
Douglas played Sars last weekend in the under 15 Hurling Semi Final. A game that was always going to be tough. Sars were already after beating Douglas in the Championship and they were not going to leave this one slip. Playing with great determination and pride Douglas went on to win this match by a single point with a last 65 from Stephen Birmingham. Players to play well were Ronan Griffin, Michael OSullivan, Diarmuid Murphy and Finbarr ODonovan.
Club Personalities. Dermot Keane.
Dermot Keanes involvement in the G.A.A. in Douglas goes back nearly 30 years. He has served as Chairman, Vice Chairman and Treasurer. But it is as under age official he is best remembered. Councillor Keane as he is affectionately known, Dermot was never slow to volunteer to drive a player any distance on behalf of the club and his journeys prior to and after the 1973 football championship success are still remembered.
MUNSTER CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPION
On Sunday last the Munster Cross Country Championships were held in Carrig Na Bfhear with a large entry from all over the province. Ideal weather conditions also played their part in swelling the number of spectators. The full programme catered for all ages from Under 9s to Senior level but it was the Under 15 Race which had particular significance for Douglas.
Damien Dunlea from Douglas is quickly becoming a recognised name in Athletic and Boxing circles and at last Sundays event he captained the Cork and Leevale Team. There were almost 100 runners in the Under 15 race with a strong team from Thurles Crokes being favourites. From the start Damien was in the leading pack and made his way to third after 1500 metres. With 600 metres to go the Douglas athlete made his move to the front, opening up a lead which he kept all the way to the line, recording a memorable and important victory to become Munster Cross Country Champion. Afterwards Damien said, I broke with 600 to go, leaving the field behind me with the driving support of my father David giving me the determination to get to the finish line.
This is Damiens first Munster title, beating Irish team members Jason Fahy from Clare and David Kelly from Thurles along the way. Well done to Damien from all at the Weekly.

DOUGLAS RUGBY CLUB
By Aonán Fitzpatrick.
Our Junior 2 side kicked off last weekends matches against Clonakilty. A very welcome return our seafaring captain Ritchie Collins accompanying the pack. The star of this game was undoubtedly Craig Fehilly who was first to every ruck and maul. The youthful Bernie Doughty providing great support along with the help of Dan Harman (Capt.). Sean OBoyle was again influential at half time with his words of wisdom and encouragement. Leon Rowley made great runs from deep on several occasions with assistance from Jim OLeary. Despite gallant tackling by Cian OBrien and John Cuddigan, Clonakilty ran out winners.
Our Junior 1 against Ballincollig was a great game to watch (if you support Douglas). It was down to business straight away with Douglas winning two early penalties. A scintillating display of rugby from our number eight Noel Swanton providing the first try on twenty minutes. No sooner had Noel caught his breath he was instrumental in Douglas second try just two minutes later. Passing the ball to that wannabe Corkman Enda. Our firefighter Eamonn Kinihan had another powerful day on the wing with magnificent running while punching massive holes in the Ballincollig defence only to be rewarded with a second half try. The Douglas once again sent a clear message to the selectors for the quarter final of the Junior Challenge Cup match this weekend. The slick passing and kicking ability of our scrum half was outstanding throughout the game. Conor Tolan (No. 4) cleaned up in the line out again this week but not without the strength of Robbie Ormond and the wily Terry McCarthy. Just when we thought the Douglas performance couldnt get any better, Willy Lehane drop kicked a stunning three pointer late in the second half. High flyer, Derry McCarthy came on for the injured Neil Pattrerson with fifteen minutes to go. Veteran, John Coughlan was called up with ten minutes to go to replace Eamonn Kinihan. Douglas ran out easy victors 28 points to 8.

COLLEGE CORINTHIANS AFC
It was a highly satisfactory weekend for the Club
on the schoolboy front with all four teams in action recording
good victories. Our Under 12's and Under 16's both progressed in
the National Cup while our two Under 14 sides recorded excellent
After a difficult period a few weeks ago our Under 16's seem to have returned to their best form and they moved through to the fourth round of the National Cup at the weekend with a comfortable 3-1 victory over West Cork side Bunratty. Richard Arnopp, John Kennedy and John Carroll grabbed the vital goals for Corinthians, while goalkeeper Barry O'Shea, Chris Hammond and Peter Moreland turned in impressive performances. Joint managers Fiachra Driscoll and Kevin Smith will now hope that recent improved form in Cup competitions will translate into league points when they return to league action over the next few weeks.
Corinthian Boys maintained their unbeaten record and moved closer to the leaders in the Under 14 Premier Division with a confident 4-0 victory over Mayfield United. It was a good performance by our lads against what looked on paper very difficult opposition. Regular marksman Stephen Moylan was once again on the scoresheet with two fine strikes with Ricky Kenny and Garry Coughlan chipping in with the other two goals. Keith Donlan, Alan Barry and Eoin Cotter deserve special mention for fine performances.
After a slow start to the season our second Under 14 team Douglas Corinthians have really hit top form and last Sunday they turned in their best performance of the season when they defeated league leaders Butterant by three goals to nil. This was their fourth league victory in a row and was made possible by a sparkling hat-trick by centre forward Dermot Collins. If this side managed by Richard Walsh, Brian Scannell and Brian Grant can maintain this form there is little doubt that they will push hard for promotion from the first division. Besides Dermot Collins, Chris Drennan, Richard Walsh and David Kilcommons were the inspiration behind this latest victory.
Corinthian Boys also maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a comfortable 6-0 victory over Cobh Ramblers in the second round of the National Cup. Corinthians started the match brightly and two early goals seem to put them in control however in fairness to Cobh they battled hard for the rest of the first half and made life difficult for Corinthians. However an early goal in the second half finished the game as a contest and Corinthians pulled clear in the closing stages. David Meyler (3), Eoin McCarthy (2) and Jamie Drennan were on the scoresheet for Corinthians and they had top class performers in Richard O'Donovan, Sean Grant and David Bevan.
FAI Senior Cup
Next Sunday afternoon is an important one for the Corinthians Senior Team when they take on Leinster Senior League side, Greystones, in a fourth round FAI Senior Cup Match. Victory would take Corinthians through to the open draw in the FAI Senior Cup putting Corinthians into the hat with all of the League of Ireland Clubs including the likes of Cork City, Shamrock Rovers, Bohemians etc. It won't be easy with Greystones showing their worth wth their victory over UCC in the third round. The game kicks off at 2pm and we're asking all our Club members, both schoolboys and adults to come out and support the team.
Under 7 Street Leagues
Winter Street Leagues for Under 7 age group (1994 & 1995 ) will start next Saturday on the Clubs all weather pitch. The Leagues will take place at the usual training time between 12.15pm and 1.30pm.
With the start of the Winter Street Leagues for our Under 7's on the all weather pitch, our Under 8 training will now switch to the grass pitches, therefore from next Saturday November 17th , all Under 8 players, that is born in 1993, should bring up their football boots rather than their runners.
Irish Under 18 Squad
Congratulations to Brian Kerr and his fabulous Under 18 Squad on their outstanding victory in the recent European qualifier held in Cork. The Irish squad trained in Corinthians Park for the duration of the tournament and they made a big impression on everyone involved with the Club.

DOUGLAS HALL AFC
By previous standards, last weekend was quiet,
with only four club sides in action. The Seniors and MSL Juniors
recorded a win double over Mayfield, while the AUL Juniors and
Under 16's were most unlucky in cup competitions.
The Seniors kept up their good form of late, with a single goal victory in the league over Mayfield Utd. In truth, this was a very disjointed performance from the Seniors, and significantly better will be required next Sunday when they travel to face Garda in the FAI Senior Cup. None the less, they battled hard for the victory last Sunday, with the goal the result of an own goal from a Gavin Roche corner. The unfortunate Mayfield defender headed past his own goalkeeper under severe pressure from Alan Bateman. Defensively, the 'Hall held firm, with Gerry McGreevy recording another clean sheet.
In the MSL Junior League, the 'Hall finally recorded a win for this season. The side had been having dreadful fortunes, with close run matches, and late goals costing them dear. However, last weekend, they turned the tables, with a late winner. The final score against Mayfield Utd. was 2-1, with the 'Hall goals from Martin Davis and Diarmuid O'Malley.
The AUL Juniors travelled to Crescent Athletic in the Munster Junior Cup and were most unfortunate to be on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline. The 'Hall took the lead through Brendan Crown, but were unable to stave off the Crescent comeback. This week, this side have an attractive league fixture, playing U.C.C. in the League in the Mardyke under floodlights on Thursday night.
The Under 16's caught a real tartar in the Barry Cup, drawn away to Cobh Ramblers. They dominated the early stages of the game, scoring twice through Christy O'Shea and Stephen Barry. However, Ramblers fought back to equalise before the interval. The second half was very hard fought, but Ranblers made the vital breakthrough, to advance on a 3-2 scoreline.
FAI Senior Cup
For the second season in succession, Douglas Hall line up in the FAI Senior Cup. Their victory over Tolka Rovers in the Intermediate Cup also guaranteed entry to the Senior competition. The draw for the Blue Riband competition in Irish soccer sees the 'Hall paired with Garda and facing a very difficult away trip to Dublin. The Garda side qualified for the Final of the Intermediate Cup a couple of seasons ago, being defeated by Rockmount. They are sure to be a huge test for the 'Hall.
However, the Douglas side are not without their battling qualities, epitomised by their previous performances in Dublin fixturres. They have recorded a number of positive results in recent years in Dublin, and all of the panel have gained valuable experience of playing in the Dublin atmosphere, unique in Cup competitions. They will need to draw on all of this experience on Sunday to face the challenge posed by Garda. The second round of the Senior Cup includes the National League sides, so there will be no shortage of incentive in next Sunday's first round tie. The very best of luck to the lads in Dublin.

The past two weeks were very successful ones
club with four cups being won as well as the seniors
progressing to the AIB Munster Club Football Final by
beating An Ghaeltacht on Saturday the 10th of
November. Nemo started this game well scoring a point
inside the first 20 seconds. An Ghaeltacht drew level
shortly afterwards before Nemo again took the lead. At
the break Nemo still held a point lead thanks to two
good frees from Colin Corkery as well as a great save
from keeper Don Heaphy. Only two points were scored
inside the first twenty-five minutes of the second
half, both by Nemo, leaving the scores 0-8 to 0-5 in
favor of the Capwell club. The last five minutes
provided some very exciting football as the Kerry
champions looked to retrieve the game. But Nemo kept
their composure and won 0-9 to 0-8. Niall Geary,
Stephen O'Brien, Kevin Cahill, Derek Kavanagh and
Maurice McCarthy all played well.
On Saturday (3rd) Nemo and Bishopstown contested the
final of the Minor Premier City Championship in
Ballinlough. The teams were also due to play in the
league final for the year 2000 and both clubs agreed
that last Saturday's winners would also claim this
trophy as well. After fifteen minutes of play the
teams were level, 0-3 apiece. Nemo dominated the rest
of the half but missed some easy chances and went in
at the break with only a two point lead, 0-5 to 0-3.
Bishopstown reduced the lead to the minimum within a
minute of the restart. Nemo restored their two point
lead shortly afterwards and in the 40th minute they
stretched their lead to five points thanks to goal
from Peter Morgan following some good play by Shane
O'Callaghan. Bishopstown pushed forward looking to get
back into the game but the defence held firm and Nemo
went on to win 1-9 to 0-8. Best for Nemo were man of
the match Brian O'Regan, John Harrington, Peter
Morgan, Brian Twomey and Stephen Heaphy.
On Sunday (4th) morning the junior "B" footballers
played Ballyphehane in the final of the league for the
year 2000. Nemo started this game well with early
points from Enda O'Donovan and Richard O'Brien. At the
interval Nemo led 1-6 to 0-4, the goal scored by
Richard O'Brien. In the second half Ballyphehane began
to come more into the game but thanks to some good
defending as well as a few good saves from goalkeeper
John Quirke Nemo kept the opposition at bay and
eventually won 1-11 to 0-5. Enda O'Donovan, John
Quirke, Richard O'Brien, Eoin Weldon, Michael Lynch
and Stephen Twomey all played well.
On Sunday (4th) evening the Intermediate football team
played Carrigaline in the final of the Tom Creedon Cup
in Carrigaline. Carrigaline made the better start and
were four points up after ten minutes. Nemo quickly
countered and were unlucky not to score a goal. Points
from John Anderson and Stephen Heaphy brought the
teams level at the break, 0-6 to 1-3. Both teams
swapped scores after the interval before a John Coogan
goal gave Nemo a two point lead. Nemo dominated the
next ten minutes and points from Michael Kearney,
Michael Morgan and Stephen Calnan gave them a five
point lead. The South East side regrouped and with
five minutes remaining were awarded a penalty. The
Nemo goalkeeper David Madden saved brilliantly and
Nemo went on to win 1-11 to 1-7. Stephen Calnan, John
Anderson, Paul Brophy, David Madden and Declan Creedon
all served Nemo well.

DOUGLAS CAMOGIE CLUB
Douglas under 12s recently retained their county
title on a glorious Saturday afternoon in Ballinhassig. Douglas
opened the scoring with a point by Moire O Donovan, which was
followed by two well-taken goals from Captain Rachel O Sullivan
and Aileen O Donovan. After the break Eire óg emerged more
determined then ever they came up against the Douglas midfield
pairing of Hilary O Connor and Niamh O Donovan who were in
sparkling form. Try as they might Eire ógs forwards could
not break down a strong Douglas backline which included Ashling
Barret, Ailish Desmond and Cliona Conway in goal who made several
impressive saves at vital times. Douglas moved Emma Heffernan to
full forward after the break and with that 2 goals were in the
back of the net. Try as they might Eire óg could not cope with a
rampant Niamh O Donovan in the half forward line who weighted in
with a goal of her own and a couple of points. Douglas took a
deserved 2nd County title in a row. Everyone on the day gave 110%
including our subs who played a vital part in this season
campaign. The final score was Douglas 6-4 to Eire óg 0-1. The
mentors, players and Club would like to thank all the Parents for
their support and we hope to see you again in the coming season.
We would also like to thank Lifestyle in Douglas Shopping Center
for their sponsorship.

On Sunday the under U-13 Camogie team played Glen Rovers in the final of the Séandun league. This was a trilling match to watch and Douglas emerged worthy winners on a score line of 4-2 to 1-0, bringing the trophy to Douglas for the first time.Led by captain, Sarah O Regan this was a team effort with every girl playing her part.The first score, a point, came from a free taken by ace centre-forward Jenny ODonovan. With mid-fielders Hilary O Connor and Deirdre Murphy on form there was a constant supply of ball to the forwards who all did well, in particular Lavinia OMahony who scored a lovely goal. Left corner forward, Olivia Tobin was definitely the hero of the hour with three spectacular goals. In defence nothing passed Audrey Flanagan and Eilish Desmond gave another fine performance. Niamh O Donovan in goal made a vital save early in the second half, which prevented the Glen from getting back into the game. These groups of girls have trained very hard all year and Douglas Camogie Club is very proud of them.
Douglas has made a clean sweep of 11,12, 13 grades.WELL DONE GIRLS.
