Ballinascarthy U14 camogie girls have a lot to celebrate already this year having won their Féile in style.

In the first round encounter in Inniscarra they kept their opponents Castlelyons, Brian Dillon’s and St. Fanahan’s scoreless, with the help of goalie Maeve Kingston and some great team displays. The semi-final was v Newtownshandrum and again the Ballinascarthy girls outscored the opposition 8-5 to 3-0 so it was on to the final, played in Castle Rd. and against Grenagh, which proved to be a tougher test but the girls stood up to the challenge.

After a good start by Bal, Grenagh came back and took the lead, but without making any changes from the sideline, these girls turned it around themselves and went in a point up at half time. This really showed their exceptional character and effective teamwork. When they came out for the second half, there was only going to be one winner.

Team captain, Denise O’Driscoll accepted the Féile trophy and what a gloriously proud moment for this fantastic team, whose trainers are William McCarthy, Francis O’Driscoll and Aidan Cahalane. In being crowned Cork Féile C champions, the team qualified for the Ulster Féile in June but with the huge distances to travel around Northern Ireland, it was decided not to take part.
