Con Tringle has added new photos to the gallery. These include a fine selection from the under 12 football final against Bandon which were taken by Con himself. These are in a new category. There are also photos from the junior football championship game with Ilen Rovers. We would like to thank Eoghan Daly of the Southern star for these. The under 21 team that played Castlehaven has been added to the U21 category.JUNIOR HURLING
The junior hurlers were away to Diarmuid O Mathunas in the league on Friday evening last. Despite having a fairly strong team on duty Dohenys had to fight all the way to secure the points against Mathunas second string. Some of the puling was over the top at times and it was fortunate that no player picked up an injury. Once again Jerry Mc Carthy was top scorer with 1-7 to his credit with Denis Healy adding 1-1. The team’s next game is away to Oliver Plunkets on Saturday evening at 7.45p.m
The seniors played Kenmare district senior team in a friendly in Dunmanway on Saturday evening. Played on the school pitch which was in fine condition the game was very worthwhile as it was very competitive and keenly fought.Dohenys were short a number of players which gave the opportunity to give some of the fringe players a game. Kilian Crowley, Tadgh O Leary, and Niall Hurley came on in the backs and acquitted themselves well while Paudie Murray showed that he has not lost any of his enthusiasm. Up front Noel Collins, Stephen Collins, Jerry Mc Carthy, David Nyhan, and Declan Dwyer were given the opportunity to show what they can do. Dohenys led throughout winning eventually by 1-13 to 1-8.
The minor footballers were at home to Skibbereen in the non-exam league on Wednesday evening last. For the second week in a row they had victory snatched from them by the last kick of the game. Last week it was Buttevant who kicked a late point to tie the game. On this occasion Skibbereen scored a goal with the last kick of the game to take a share of the points. Maguires had led at halftime by 1-7 to 0-7 with Noggin scoring the goal.However they conceded a very easy goal soon after the break to give the visitors the lead. Points from Jerry Mc Carthy (3) and James Collins and a goal from Denis O’ Mahony established a 4 point lead and Maguires looked to be on their way to vicyory.Such was not to be ,however, as Skibbereen finished strongly to deny Maguires

UNDER 10 FOOTBALL
The u10 footballers maintained their unbeaten record when they defeated Blarney in Dunmanway on Saturday morning last in the league. The final score was 4-4 to 3-4 with Johnny Kelly scoring 2 goals and Owen Murray adding 1-2. All 24 players got a run and these included Jonathan O Sullivan, Padraig Crowley, Tomas White, Jamie Carroll, James O Neill, Kevin Dullea, Donagh Mc Carthy, Owen Lavers, Liam Rice, Sean Daly, Johny Kelly, Dylan O Driscoll, Ray Jennings, Owen Murray, Andrew Doyle, Mark Buckley, Martin Murphy, Daniel Hayes, Michael Kearney, Thomas Daly, Padraig O Mahony, Conor O Donovan, Sean Hudson, Vincent Roche.
A large crowd travelled to Thurles on Sunday last for the senior hurling clash between Cork and Clare. Cork produced a display of hurling right out of the top drawer to win convincingly by 6 points The level of skill displayed by them at speed was breathtaking and they will take some beating if they can reproduce that kind of performance.
SAM MAGUIRE PARK
There were two games played in the Sam Maguire Park in the past week with Newcestown playing Rosscarbery in U12 ‘B’ final on Friday evening and Castlehaven taking on Newcestown in the semi-final of the U21 football championship on Saturday. The later was expected to be a close affair but it turned out to be a bit of an anticlimax as Newcestown dominated from start to finish and the game was as good as over long before the final whistle. In contrast the u12 game was a cracker with the sides finishing level For sheer entertainment, even for neutrals, it would be hard to best it This game will be replayed on Saturday evening next and should be well worth seeing.
