Carbery Monthly Award Winners Nov 2019

NOVEMBER  -  Doheny Ladies  Junior B Football team.

Always the bridesmaid and never the bride. Having lost the county finals of 2016, 2017 and 2018, Dohenys ladies junior B football team faced into 2019 determined to go all the way this time. With Tony White as manager for the fourth year, they had wins over O’Donovan Rossa, Bishopstown, Courcey Rovers and Watergrasshill to qualify for the county final for the fourth year in  a row. The final against Midleton was  a cracking game in which Dohenys had to call on all their experience and courage. They scored the opening point but weren’t to  lead again until injury time. Dohenys trailed by 0-6 to 0-3 at half time  and when Midleton took a two-point lead in the last quarter, 0-8 to 0-6, it looked all over for the Dunmanway girls for the fourth year in a row. Howeve, showing tremendous courage, they fought back and two pointed frees by Catriona Moloney levelled the game. In injury time, young minor,  Máiréad Crowley became the hero when she kicked the winning point. It finished 0-9 to 0-8 and Dohenys were county champions at long last.

 NOVEMBER   -  Castlehaven Ladies Junior C Football team.

After the huge disappointment of losing the county junior C final to neighbours, Skibbereen,   in a replay last season, the recently formed Castlehaven junior team quickly got back into action in 2019 under manager, Denny Cahalane. The West Cork Division 5 league was won and  in the county C championship group stages, the Haven accounted for Tadhg MacCárthaigh, St. Mary’s, St. Peter’s and Mallow to qualify for the county semi-final, where they beat local rivals, St, Colum’s. Opponents in the final in Shanbally were Mallow and this was the day the forwards hit top form, kicking five goals. Four of those were scored by the outstanding Máiréad O’Driscoll. The Haven trailed by 1-4 to 0-1 early on against the wind, but O’Driscoll then kicked a hat-trick of goals as the teams were level at half time, 3-3 to 1-9. Although trailing after 45 minutes, further goals from O’Driscoll and Gráinne O’Sullivan saw the Haven surge to a marvellous 5-7 to 2-13 win. An ever-improving Castlehaven will now progress to junior B in 2020.
