Cordal Club Celebration Night

Cordal GAA Club had a great night of celebration in Ballygarry Hotel last Saturday to honour the senior team on topping the Division 5 table last year and getting promoted to Division 4.

It was also a night to honour the achievements of Seán O’Connell and Philip O’Connor at county level.

Furthermore, awards were given to senior club management: Andy O’Leary, Kevin Walsh and Daniel O’Connor. An additional award was given to Domo Ó Ciardubháin for his contribution to the senior team.

The night also provided an opportunity for many club officers such as Chairman Maurice Costello and Secretary Richard O’Donoghue to praise the club members and players for their dedication to the club and to note all the achievements of 2017.

Maurice Costello also revealed some great news that Divanes Castleisland will be sponsoring a new kit for the senior team.

East Kerry Board Chairman Johnny Brosnan praised the club on the night for its achievements and also honoured two great friends of his from Cordal GAA Club, Tom Wrenn and Jimmy Roche who have sadly passed away recently.

It was a great night for Cordal GAA Club to appreciate the positive achievements of 2017 and to commend the players and supporters for continuing to support the club. The future certainly looks bright for Cordal GAA Club.

Great Start for Cordal / Scart Minors

A six goal blast against Killarney Legion last Saturday paid dividends for the Scart/Cordal minor team and it secured victory by a very wide margin in the East Kerry Division One Round 1game in Cordal.

Goals win Games

After scoring 1-2 in the first ten minutes and aided by a goal from Eddie Horan, the home boys had a good start.

Both teams failed to score for the next ten minutes with Legion then bursting back with six points and with great play from their midfielders.

Cordal/Scart brought Eddie Horan out to midfield and Cathal O’Donoghue switched to full forward and this led to almost immediate returns with two more goals from Eamon Nolan and Seán O’Connell for the home sides minutes before the half time whistle.

The half time score gave Cordal/Scart a promising seven point lead at 3-4 to Legions’s 0-6.

Second Half -Total Control

A quick Conor Kerin’s goal gave Cordal/Scart the ideal start and they continued to dominate with strong play from Seán O’Connell, Shay Walsh and Eddie Horan.

The management made sure to run the bench and each player on the squad got valuable game time.

It was a perfect second half for the Cordal/Scart team and they had an easy home win with 6-13 to Legion’s 0-10 upon the referee’s final whistle.

Well done Cordal/Scart Minors, a great start, keep it up.
