Fe 16 B2 Hurling League vs Courcey Rovers Fri Jun 29th

The Fe 16 hurlers travelled to Ballinspittle for a league game late in June. On a scorching night the ref had to stop the game several times to allow the players get water. The first half was a cracking contest with the sides exchanging scores on a regular basis. There was just a point between them at half time 3-04 for Nemo 2-08 for Courcey’s. In the second half the home teams slicker hurling began to tell. They started to rattle off the points. The Nemo boys tried to keep in touch but went for goals too often when there was easy points to be had. In the end the home team had a comfortable 4-18 to 5-05 win but the Nemo mentors were delighted with the spirit shown by the Nemo boys.

The Fe 16 camogie team entertained Barryroe in the league last in June. On a scorching hot day both teams served up some great camogie. The sides were evenly matched but the visitors were a little sharper in front of goal. And this was to prove the difference between the teams. Final score was 6-07 to 2-07 for Barryroe. But a very good performance by the Nemo girls who continue to improve with every outing.

Fe 16 Camogie League vs Erins Own Weds Jul 4th

The Fe 16 camogie team entertained Erins Own on the 4th of July in the league. Nemo were excellent on the night and they dominated from start to finish.

In the end they had a comfortable and well deserved win.

Fe 16 P1 Football League vs Douglas Mon Jul 9th

For a finish there was very little between the sides. Nemo just about deserved it on a score line of 3-13 to 3-11.

With the sides deadlocked throughout it looked like a draw was on the cards. But a late point for the Nemo girls saw them record a 2-05 to 2-04 victory. In truth a draw would have been a fair result but such is sport.

Fe 16 P1 Football Championship vs Inisscarra Mon Jul 23rd

The Fe 16 boys played their winners round championship game in Rathpeacon late in July. Their opponents were Inisscarra. The prize on offer was a place in the county semi-final. For the losers there is a quarter final tie. Nemo were missing 8 starting players over holidays etc. Despite this they put up a battling display against a well drilled and well organised Inisscarra outfit. Inisscarra were first off the mark with some well worked points. But Nemo struck for a great goal by centre forward Jack O’Brien. This settled them and they began to play some good football. The sides traded goals again and just before half time Inisscarra struck for another major to make it 2-07 to 2-02 at the break. The score didn’t reflect the first half. But Inisscarra hit a purple patch just after the break and they started to pull away. They scored a third goal which put them 11 points to the good. But Nemo never gave up and they outscored their opponents 1-02 to no score in the last 10 mins. But it wasn’t enough. Inisscarra had a deserved 3-14 to 3-08 win. But all in not lost for Nemo – they face Glanmire on Aug the 20th in the quarter final. We wish them well.

Girls Fe 11 Summer Football League vs Macroom Weds Jul 25th

Glanmire started brightly and they were soon 4 points to no score ahead. But Nemo settled post a great goal from centre back David O’Sullivan. The exchanges were close and at half time there was just a point between them. Nemo started the second half really well and soon they were ahead and looking good for the points.

Fe 18 Football Challenge vs Naas Sat Aug 3rd

The minor boys entertained Naas in a football challenge game last Saturday morning. The home team were short a number of regulars and as a consequence the result was never in doubt. Naas were very good and played some lovely football. Nemo used the challenge to give fringe players a run out and in that context the game was very worthwhile. We thank our visitors and wish them all the best in their local league and championship.
