 The U 13 is a new competition run by the County Board fro 2012.Our girls have played two games to date. Our opening game was against Knockavilla in Dundrum  on June 19th.Knockavilla proved to be tough opposition and ran out winners on the night. Our backs gave their all and defended with great tenacity. It took our girls a while to settle and for fifteen minutes of the second half we held Knockavilla to a point. Some of our girls  made their debut in their first championship match. They are all to be commended for all the work they did on the pitch and we are very encouraged by their camogie and spirit. .Our next game was against Brian Borus on last Tuesday week in Monroe. Panel: used.Sarah O'Dwyer, Louise Norris, Amy Norris, Sophie Delaney, Yasmin Quirke, Emma Cronin, Emer Ryan, Áine Fitzgerald, Leah Mc Garry, Roweena Dowling, Clare O'Dwyer, Lucy Whyte, Eve Ryan, Karen Meehan, Roweena Dowling, Erin Mitten,Shauna Fee,Rachael Browne,Jenny Everard,Kristy Crotty Ryan,This was a close competitive match with both sides very evenly matched. Our girls were a point down at half time 0-1 to 0-2. They played with great determination and skill in the second half to win by a well deserved point. Final score 0-3 to 0-2. Practice resumes every Friday at 6pm.. Our U.14s took on Carrick Swans last Friday evening on The Green in Carrick.This was a tough game of camogie with both teams getting stuck in. The early excahges were very even.Having beaten Carrick earlier in the year we  expected a close game.The final score of 4-4 to 1-5 did not reflect the closeness of the match . Our team was Amy Norris,Louise Norris,Aine Fitzgearld,Katie Whyte,Shania Dowling,Deirbhile Fitzgearld,Eimer Ryan,(0-1),Kristy Crotty Ryan, (0-2)Rachael Browne (1-2),Jenny Everard,Rowena Dowling,Clionadh Collins,Janice Lonergan. A special word of praise and thanks to our team managers and mentors who work hard to field teams during the summer months when availability  of players is reduced. Our under 16s get their  championship back on track this week.
Ladies football

Our u12 Girls travelled to golden to take on Cappawhite in the U12 plate final on the 18th of June. For most of the girls it was a first time being in a county final and they were very excited. It was a very close game in the first half with Lizzy Ryan and Amy Norris showing great defensive qualities to keep Cappawhite to only a goal. Up front Sarah O’Connor and Aine Fitzgerald were causing problems for the Cappawhite backs. In the second half the girls started to play more as a team and this showed with some fine scores from our forwards. Emma Cronin and Louise Norris were now on top in midfield and great forward play from Sophie Delaney and Amy Broderick got us in the positions to get crucial scores. The full time whistle was blown and Moyle Rovers were on top in a good game of football by both teams.  Team: K Ryan, C O’Dwyer, A Norris, K Meehan, E Ryan, L Ryan, L McGarry, E Cronin, L Norris, A Broderick, A Fitzgerald, S Delaney, S O’Connor, C O’Dwyer, L Holohan  M Cronin, E Buckley, E Mitten, A Macentaggart, M Looby, S Fee.  Senior,Junior and Minor players training every Monday and Wednesday at 7.30. Training for Gaelic for mothers Tuesdays at 7.30.

The Road to the Feile Moyle Rovers 2012

The road to the Feile  began in the spring

When Karen, Helen and Ratchie took us under their wing.

We trained in the frost,  the hail and the sun

The core training was hard, but also good fun.

With five pieces of fruit to eat every day

And litres  of water, we were well on our way.

The county Feile competition,  Good Friday in Cahir

Winning against  Aherlow, sporting and fair.

Later in the  year we beat old friends Cahir

In the county A final, that made us all square.

We raised some  money to help pay the way

With a run near Monroe,  on a hot summer’s day.

Now it’s onto the Feile for  Tipp’s glory quest

As counties play each other, to see who is best.

The Hazel Hotel was our first call for food

A bumpy  bog road, helps lighten our mood.

The first game we played was against Corrlastown

With a very strong wind, we went four points down.

The team settled down and the scores did flow

Everyone said we put on  a great show.

Three points two goals and a  hat trick

Each goal scored was  a mighty great kick.

To Portlaoise  town for the Feile  parade

The Moyle Rovers banners, were proudly displayed.

 We marched  around town behind the brass  band

Evrena and Derbhile went to   the grandstand.

Back on the bus we headed for our  host home

They  treated us just as one of their own.

Saturday morning up early and bright

Off to Edenderry ,the home team to fight.

Great to see the girls who had come up that day

On the  bus from Clonmel,  that had  lost its way.

A really  tough match, had to be at our best

Ratchie’s  4Cs, were  put to the test.

The skills competition was held that day

We well represented by our own Rosie Mai.

Against Naomh Conaill from auld   Donegal

Moyle Rover’s played super, their best  football.

Back to Kinnegad for some well earned rest

In an all Ireland semi final, have to be at our best.

The journey to Killenard was tiring and  long

Lurgan  of Cavan, and a battle ding dong.

A great penalty save from our Goalie Claire Moore

Left us level at half time and ready for more.

We tried and we tried but the scores did not come

Our legs getting  tired, it was so hard to run.

Down but not out we cried for while

When we saw our supporters, we just had to smile.

Onto Rochfordbridge, a disco and a great treat.

The mood was improving, as we forgot our defeat.

We met many new  friends, who did Feile attend 

We  promised to tag and facebook befriend.

Later that night as our Parents did sing

What would they be like if we had to  win. 

Sunday morning we met at the Hillmar hotel

A long night for some it was easy to tell.

Presentations were made and nice words were said.

Hugs and  goodbyes to the friends we had made.

Portlaoise was the venue where the finals were on

We watched Simmonstown win and then we were gone.

Home to the  halfway to see the big match

Tipp scored a  goal  after Bonnar’s great catch.

Thank you to all who made this great fun

To our club and its officers  who make all things run.

To Sharon who helped if  we needed first aid

To Mark ,Helen and Karen for preparations so great.

Edmond ,Aaron and Ronan who helped with the drills

Ian Liam and Jimmy who showed us the skills.

To Aine and Caroline who focused our mind

An taught us to  to relax,enjoy and unwind.

So here’s to the girls lets mention them all

They deserve our respect for giving their all.

The Cotters and  Dowlings and the Everards were there

The Fitzgearlds and the O’Donnells all   sisters in pair.

Chloe, Cliona,Chelsea  and  Claire

Emma  and Sarah both with red hair.

RJ  Roisin, Rachael, and Rosie Mai

Bronagh, Ceire, and Kristy, their skills did display.

Michelle, Orla and  Amy great football did play

With Aileen and Sarah supporting our  way

Let’s not forget Shannon who was on  holiday.

Our Feile Journey is over but we won’t forget

The training and games and the friends that we met.
