Great win for J1’s

No quarter was given in this game at Muskerry today, but we emerged with the win after a titanic struggle.

Mossie and Emily went head to head in the

LOUDEST SPECTATOR, COMPETION.

I’m not sure who won as I had gone deaf with 20 minutes to go.

Match report on main “RESULTS” section, but some pictures from the ground.

What is Colin looking at, while Gleeson looks as it he has lost the will to live.

Matty has a chat.
Injury kept Ryan out of the game.
What is Pump looking for?
A bit of nervousness among the relations.
Matty’s flag goes up a bit early.
Has he got a friend to phone?
As the Kiwis would say,
“sweet as”.

Community day on Sunday

Paul McGrath writes…


There is a Community Funday on this Sunday 6th Oct in Upper Glanmire community hall from 2.30 to 5.30pm, across from Boot house Bar. ( FLYER ATTACHED)

Old Christians minis & Youths have been asked to organise a skills section for the younger lads attending.

I have all the stuff ready to go so just need some help running things on the day..

I wonder if any U14 players, U16 player or Ladies team players, might be interested in giving me a hand running operations on the day as I am on my Todd as things stand.

I have 3 stations organised so need a few stewards for .

1)      Passing challenge

2)      Lineout challenge

3)      Drop goal challenge

Activities are geared towards 12yr old down so would be great if we had our own +12yr old lads lads representing the club.

Local soccer teams and GAA have areas also reserved so would be great to out colour these lads and promote OCRFC as best as possible !!!!!

Any help much appreciated.

Let the community know what we have to offer !!

Great win for J 1’s in first league game.

A great display saw our J1 surprise Kinsale in the Junior League in Rathcooney today.

Full match report and pictures later.

I can remember Sisky when he was about 10 or 12, making a tackle, throwing his arms wide, to show he released, then going back to turn over the ball. He’s still at it, three turnovers today.



It was good to see some old faces around today.
Willy John Twomey (pic on main page), was there with brother Peter.

He’s back…………………..

A little older, a little greyer, a lot slower, Brian Healy is back on the line.

Also back was newly declared millionaire Kieran Heaphy, aka the “Special One”.
Can you identify our mysterious number 6?
This Ball Boy is taking his job very seriously.

Position Specific Workshop

There will be a position specific skills workshop, delivered by Duncan Williams, Denis Fogarty and Johnny Holland, this coming Sunday September 29th 2019 at 11am in Irish Independent Park, Cork.
