Skibbereen J1's secured their second League win when convincingly beating Clanwilliam RFC 31 - 12 on Sunday last in Tipperary town. Click here for match report.
Our J1's had a poor start to their League ambitions when going down 10-17 to Senan's RFC at home on the 6th Jan. However with a match cancellation on the 13th (Old Christians) the J1's returned to winning ways on the 20th Jan when they saw off O/Christians 10-3 at the Rathcooney venue. This coming Sunday we play East Cork side Cobh Pirates RFC in our first venture this season in the Munster Junior Cup. You will proudly recall we went to the final of this prestigous competition last year against Senior Club side Cork Constitution RFC. We came close to winning on the day but victory still eluded us by a narrow margin - perhaps 2013 will be our year !! Update - MJC game postponed until further notice.
Bad start to the month when we went down 6 - 17 to Crosshaven away. A poor performance again and yet the game was there to be won in the first half which we dominated. A tough physical encounter throughout it was poorly refereed by a man we have been unlucky to have had for three games this season. Crosshaven proved the better team on the day but the game ended on a bad note with some blood being spilt. So serious was the incident that it is now the subject of a citing of a Crosshaven player for his actions by Skibbereen RFC.
The 17th February was a more co-ordinated venture and we managed to overcome a tough Newcastlewest side by a good enough margin 32 - 17 to merit a bonus point and propel ourselves back into the top four on the League table.
This coming Sunday we take on LImerick city side St.Mary's RFC at the home venue. St. Mary's have shown good form in recent times having languished at the lower half of the table for long periods
Update: Another fine performance saw us through against St. Mary's - 16-15 albeit as the result of last minute try and conversion by the Shannon brothers Kieran and David respectively.See match report HERE
Last League match this coming Sunday 3rd March against Waterpark RFC - and this is an away fixture.
Result 9 -15 to Waterpark report HERE
Next round of the MJ Cup is Sunday 31st March against Muskerry RFC KO @ 2.30pm

A great start to December with win against Cobh Pirates 24-13 - and with just one more match against Tralee before Christmas - fingers are crossed.
Our J1's finished the pre-Christmas season in great style with a win over Tralee 18 - 16 on Sunday 9th. That's 4 straight wins on the trot - well done. What's even more important is that we now occupy the second spot in the table, which is a great boost and a nice Christmas present. League leaders Richmond were beaten on Sunday by Kanturk and so this opens the door a just a little bit for the higher ranking teams to now compete for League honours.
Wharfedale RFC - Friday 18th May - 7.00pm - Mill Road.
Now that the season proper has come to a close our thoughts turn to the visit of a 'touring side' all the way from North Yorkshire - to play a local selection - they will be with us on Friday 18th May and be around for the weekend. Club Captain Colm Hurley is presently doing his homework on selecting a panel of players and I am led to believe that competition for places is very keen indeed. So if you want to make the 'cut' you have to impress Colm - no brown envelopes allowed - and canvassing will disqualify.
The 'troops' actually arrive on the night of Thursday and their place of rest is the West Cork Hotel - where they have a meal and a 'get-together' afterwards with Skibbereen RFC players and Committee - the calm before the 'storm'. So players keep the date in mind and go down to the West Cork to give the visitors a 'Cead Míle Fáilte.
Friday evening at 7.00pm is the proposed KO time and afterwards all retire to the Clubhouse for 'soup and sandwiches' and a bit of craic - music for the evening is courtesy of 'Different Strings' so a gala night assured. So all Club members are of course welcome and bring along a friend too. These Yorkshire boys are reputed to be fine singers as well as fine rugby players so gargle the throat muscles early so as to be in peak form later.
Saturday the 19th will see the visitors hiring bicycles and 'motoring' to Glandore - no doubt with a stop or detour along the way - to finally reach their destination at O'Casey's pub Glandore in time for a mid day 'stew' and set the scene for the Heineken 'Irish' Cup Final - a long session anticipated - and the inevitable query about the return bicycle journey to Skibbereen. There is a plan B - isn't there??
Saturday/Sunday 14th-15th April 2012
Well the season has almost come to an end and the underage are stealing the show insofar as silverware is concerned. Our U 15’s came up trumps with another Cup for the sideboard on Sunday last to add to their earlier League Cup a few weeks ago. This time it was the Championship Cup and they faced neighbours Bantry at the PBC venue in Cork and they performed like true professionals and came away convincing winners in the end. Undoubtedly there is much talent at underage level within Club and thanks is due to their coaches who put in so much time and effort bringing their charges to this level.
The weekend began in earnest on Saturday 14th with the U17’s in action against Muskerry in a Plate Semi-Final match at the home venue, and they emerged victorious securing a place in the final – opposition and venue yet to be decided. Once again tremendous talent on display and Skibbereen were very competent and disciplined in the execution of their task. Well done lads, and continued success in the final.
Then came Sunday the 15th and the competition began early for the U15’s with a 12.00 Noon kick-off against Bantry and as stated they came through with flying colours - and against formidable opposition it must be said. The game was very much in contention for most of the match with scores being traded evenly until well into the second half when Skibbereen showed their talent grabbed the lead and held it comfortably until the whistle .
That was the second Skibbereen win thus far and to complete the perfect weekend we looked towards the J1’s in the late evening for a win against Cork Con in the Munster Junior Cup at the Musgrave park venue. To complete the three wins would have been very special indeed and to win this prestigious Cup for the very first time would be a dream come through. At the venue there was a great show of support for Skibbereen and in the lead-up to the final there was plenty of good wishes received from Junior Clubs throughout Branch. Naturally the atmosphere was electric and the tension high before the kick- off and if good wishes could do it for us we were home and dry – the reality of course was that we were competing against an experienced and Senior Club with a limitless supply of talented players available who were seeking to win this trophy for the 18th time – while we were on our maiden voyage. So on the face of it a difficult task ahead to say the least but what we had in abundance was this great desire to bring this trophy back to Skibbereen for the very first time and every player on the panel prepared to give 110%.
Skibbereen players did West Cork proud and more importantly did themselves proud and for those 80 minutes tried the very best they could do and very nearly achieved their goal. The result of 13 – 10 perhaps tells its own story of how close this match was.
Skibbereen got off to a great start and pounded the Con defence in the opening seven minutes but the Con defence held and we ended up with little to show for it – apart from letting them know we meant business. However this too was rather quickly countered when shortly after, a concerted Con attack led by their No 8 burst through the Skibbereen defence and began to spread their attack first to the left and then to the right until a gap appeared in the defence and their outhalf was in for a try – which he then converted. It happened very quickly and Skibbereen were caught off-guard momentarily and in truth ended up playing catch-up for the rest of the game. That said Cork Con never came as close again to scoring another try and in fact Skibbereen were showing more potential and were more dangerous. A penalty from Skibbereen’s David Shannon saw both sides leave for the dressing room but still 7 – 3 down at halftime. Further indiscretions in the second half by Skibbereen led to more penalties that eventually extended the Cork Con lead to 13 – 3 before Skibbereen turned the game on its head with a wonderful try, spearheaded initially by Dave O’Keeffe with a great break and taken on by Sean O’Neill to score to the left of the post – and when Dave Shannon converted the scoreboard now read 13 – 10 to Cork Con at 64 minutes - 49 seconds. At this point with fifteen minutes remaining in the game most people felt Skibbereen were going to do it and finally realise their dream – but sadly this was not to be – and continued to give away too many penalties, depriving themselves of vital possession. It must be said also that if the Cork Con outhalf was a little more accurate with his kicking there would have been more than the three points between the sides in the end. As it transpired Cork Con played a possession game for the last ten minutes and coupled with a few strange refereeing decisions – especially in relation to the spinning of the scrum – Skibbereen had little input to make and try as they did the die was cast and victory went to the City side. Gracious as ever in defeat Skibbereen will now bide their time and take a rest for a few weeks before starting all over again in August in preparation for next season - this time to include the All-Ireland Junior Cup competition - for the first time also.
It is worth observing that Cork Con does not have a Junior team in their Club in that they do not compete in the Munster Junior League, so as a team we would never get to meet them on the field of play except in the context of this competition. That said they are not alone - other Senior Clubs are afforded the same facility and also compete in the Munster Junior Cup – let’s just say it’s been that way for years and is unlikely to change in the near future. Call it politics if you will but to many observers, and this is not sour grapes, a Munster Junior Cup by definition should be competed for by Junior Clubs – and the same observers would further say it should only be open to those Clubs that compete in the Munster Junior League – it makes sense. It would be worth looking at the statistics of this prestigious competition to see how the spread of wins for Junior/Senior Clubs compare.
Below I include photographs of the successful U15's celebrating their great win over Bantry and also the gallant starting fifteen players of the Skibbereen J1 team who were unlucky this time out in their quest for Munster Junior Cup honours against Cork Constitution RFC - but rest assured there will be another time!!!
Thursday 5th April
Our U15 team secured their place in the Cup Final with a comprehensive win over a gallant Clon side on a scoreline of 37 - 7 and now proceed to meet Bantry who overcame Cork Con. That final is also fixed for the 15th April in the PBC grounds near Dennehy's Cross in Cork City with a 12.00 noon KO. Support for both the U15 and the J1 teams would be much appreciated.
Sunday 1st April
Our J1's had a County Cup quarter final away match against Crosshaven today and fought bravely over the eighty minutes with a depleted side but in the end Crosshaven emerged the winners on a scoreline of 17 - 5. Disapointing - yes it was, but at least they will now have a little extra time for the walking wounded to return to full fitness before meeting Cork Con on the 15th April.
Sunday 23rd March
On this day Skibbereen entertain Clonmel RFC at home for a place in the Munster Junior Cup Final - and if succesful would be a first for the club. We send out an early appeal for all the support the town can muster to cheer on the lads and help create a bit of history.
Well the J1 Team did create history and yes the support came in great numbers and the Club send a sincere thank you to everyone who made the effort to attend and cheer on the lads. It was a memorable day for the Club and a proud day for rugby in West Cork. The margin of victory was small mathematically 9 - 6 but boy was there a lot of rugby played on the day. The result was in doubt right up to the end and understandably the gallant Tipperary boys were shattered at their defeat - but like the troopers they are, graciously accepted the result and conceding the fact they met a better team than the team they had convincingly beat a few weeks ago. The final result does not really do justice to our lads who in truth dominated proceedings from the start and should have recorded at least two tries in the first half alone - having been within a hairs breadth of scoring when a few 'selfish' errors crept in to deprive the forwards of well deserved scores. Something to watch out for lads in the final on the 15th against Cork Con. Just remember to keep the head down and drive that maul straight over the try line - no heroics - it makes sense to secure the 5 points first and take our chances with the conversion later. That aside we were well on top in nearly every department and the lineouts worked like clockwork every time - great to see. Augers well for the Final in three weeks and in the meantime keep up the training and work on those little injuries. A special thanks to "Sam" the physio who helped iron out a few problems before during and after the match. Yes history was made on the 23rd March 2012 - to be added to on the 15th April - lad's lets make it happen. Congrats to all concerned. It goes without saying that this historic occasion was celebrated in typical style in the Clubhouse later. Even a couple of 'Sumo Wrestlers' got in on the act. Click for some After-Match Photos
In the meantime there will be small matter of a fixture next weekend 1st. April against Crosshaven RFC in the County Cup - always a testing fixture and this time it's on their turf - just to make it even more testing - plenty of excitement to keep us going. The KO is 2.30 as usual. Support needed again please.
Sunday 11th March
Our J1's and J2's were both away in Cup games against Old Christians on Sunday - the J2's at the earlier time of 12.30pm in the J2 Cup and the J1's at the usual time of 2.30pm for a place in the semi-final of the prestigious Munster Junior Cup.
Sadly our J2’s went down against a much better Old Christians side on the day but again injuries and absences played a big part in the defeat. But the team and the replacements fought bravely and gave a good account of themselves – however the Kelly Cup is still out there and they will fight tooth and nail to re-claim that in the coming weeks.
Not all doom and gloom however as our J1's have reached the semi-final of the Munster Junior Cup having beaten Old Christians 41-17 at the Rathcooney grounds.Six years ago we also made the semi-final stage of the MJC and should have reached the final only to ‘gift’ that honour to our opponents on that fateful day - Cork Con - courtesy of a missed penalty in the dying seconds of the game – some of us still have difficulty coming to terms with that miss. Anyway we are back in contention again and our opponents this time are Clonmel who overcame Thomond on Sunday, and we have them at home. There is still perhaps a bitter aftertaste from our most recent encounter with Clonmel just a month ago in the league but we were under strength and performed poorly on the day – it happens - but I suspect and I know we will be approaching the next encounter in a very different way – and will be absolutely positive from the opening whistle. I know also the lads will relish the battle and will want to ‘right the wrong’ of the 12th February – and based on last Sunday’s performance can well afford to be upbeat about their game having delivered one of their best performances for some time – and knowing that a similar performance on Sunday week is well within their grasp. Some serious training sessions and a full turnout of the troops will be very important over the next two weeks. I include a few photographs from Sunday’s encounter.
Skibbereen U15 triumph in South Munster Final
Last Saturday great crowds travelled to Cork to see our U15's take on Cork Con in the South Munster League Final. The venue was Highfield early in the mornong but circumstances dictated the game would have to be played in Temple Hill or postponed until April. Not to be deterred and following a great build-up to the final, Skibbereen conceded home venue and decided to take them on on their own turf. In the end the right decision and they emerged victorious on a scoreline of 9 - 3. There was great excitement and jubilation after the match as team Captain Eric O'Brien stepped forward to proudly accept the Cup fromma Branch Official. No doubt there will be a more indebt report on the Star next week.
W/End 3/4th March
Our U15 were successful in the South Munster League Final and so were our J2's on Sunday against Cobh away - sadly however our J1's were not so lucky later in the day when they lost out to a rampant Cobh Pirates 10 - 17.
Sunday 26th February
Skibb J1’s secured a quarter-final slot in the Munster Junior Cup on Sunday when they overcame a tough Mallow team on a 13 – 10 scoreline. Played at the home venue it was a very entertaining contest played in the best spirit of the game and it was looking for a long time the result was destined to go Mallow’s way. However one final assault on the Mallow line in the closing minutes proved successful when a Skibbereen maul – involving almost the entire team – pushed their way over the line and allowed player/coach Declan Coppinger get the vital try which Denis McCarthy converted. Certainly a great win in the end and a much needed boost to the confidence levels after a series of poor showings in recent times. Mallow look destined to win out their Division 2 League and make the step into Division 1 Rugby for next season and on Sunday’s showing they will be very much at home. Skibbereen now go on to meet Old Christians on Sunday 11th March, away, for a place in the Semi-Final – and fully realise there is still much work to be done, but nonetheless they are very capable of overcoming Christians.
The photograph below captures the try-scoring moment with Declan Coppinger barely visible at the bottom of the maul but over the line with ball, just as the referee is about to raise his hand to signal the try. Naturally a few Skibbereen players and supporters had their hands in the air too - in anticipation. Understandably the dissapointment is clearly visible on the faces of the Mallow defenders.
Sunday 12th February
Not the most memorable day of Rugby from a Club point of view with both adult teams losing - the J1 to Clonmel 6 - 30 and the J2 to Carrigaline 7 - 13.
However Skibbereen continue to maintain a strong presence in the division as can be seen from the most recent League Table. The third position is pretty secure at this stage and with just one League match remaining against old rivals Cobh our qualification to the All-Ireland Junior Cup is guaranteed for next season. The Cobh match is an away game and will be held on Sunday the 4th March and a 2.30pm KO.
Sunday 29th January
This coming Sunday sees the start of our mission in the Munster Junior Cup of 2012. Always regarded as one of the premier competitions at Junior Level, controversially there is still enough flexibility in the system to allow AIL Clubs the 'right' to play 'qualifying' senior players in this Cup - so it is always going to be a difficult competition for a genuine Junior Club to win. That said we have had some very good runs in this Cup in the past and we clearly have the personnel and the talent to go far - with the help of that little bit of luck. So the first round is against Thurlas on Sunday and the usual KO time of 2.30pm. Support would be welcome and appreciated. Update: Thurlas failed to travel - match conceded.
Sunday 22th January
Our hearts go out to the Skibbereen J1 team at the disappointment of their defeat on Sunday last against Kanturk – the match was theirs for the taking but once again it managed to slip through their fingers. Olan Allen wrote in his report of the Galbally match two weeks ago that Skibbereen “will rue the penalty chances lost that day” and he was right of course. On Sunday last we repeated the mistake eventually losing out by just 2 points 7 - 9. I daresay Olan might repeat the same observations on this occasion – so near yet so far away.
Skibbereen travelled the long journey to North Cork to contest for the second-place spot at the top of the J1 League Table, unquestionably needing the win if only to help restore some level of confidence after a few unfortunate losses against table toppers Richmond and subsequently Galbally – games we know we should have won. Travelling without the services of player/coach Declan Coppinger and centre David O’Keeffe and full-back Denis McCarthy – all out through injury – it was always going to be a big ask but in the opening quarter Skibbereen quickly realised they had no reason to fear Kanturk and began to slowly dominate and dictate terms and indeed rightly so. Many would agree they were deserving of a better return for their input in the opening forty minutes but they were still happy enough to reach the half-way stage leading 7 – 0 after a fine Pete Stoutt try and David Shannon conversion - quietly confident, and again rightly so. They started the second half well and continued the dominance into the opening 10 minutes but having then missed their third relatively easy penalty the rot set in and their game faltered and they basically allowed Kanturk back into the game, compounding matters by conceding too many penalties as the game progressed. And yet, even after some staunch and exhaustive defending and with the clock moving into the last ten minutes, Skibbereen continued to hold a slim one point lead 7 – 6. At this stage the Skibbereen supporters had come to realise that it was now a question of whether they could hold out for the whistle and scrape the much needed win - or could disaster strike yet again. And of course disaster did strike as the clock ticked away and they conceded a late but dubious penalty in a very kickable position which Kanturk took full advantage of. Skibbereen did win a late penalty too but the ref checked his watch and ruled a kick at goal the only option and it was left to David Shannon to try his luck – but it was always a bridge too far – even for an O’Gara. And so another disappointing result where yet again Skibbereen were the dominant force and truly deserving of victory - but to close out games in such circumstances requires skills we haven’t yet mastered ,it seems.
Monday 16th January
Even the poor weather didn't dampen the spirits of Skibbereen yesterday as they romped home against Kilfeacle on a scoreline of 11 - 3. On a surface that was difficult to get a grip on and a ball that was even more difficult. Skibbereen held out against stern opposition to secure the 4 points. Kilfeacle were themselves fighting a relegation battle and fought extremely hard in the second half to try and secure some little success - even a bonus point would help - but Skibbereen held the nerve and perhaps should even have put a few more scores on the board. However they will be happy with the win. Next Sunday Skibbereen are away to Kanturk - a team sharing joint second place - and Skibbereen will have to be on their very best form to take points from this North Cork encounter.
Interestingly, but not confirmed , word has filtered back that some Galbally's team sheets have thrown up a few anomalies, and if recent activity on that front is anything to go by it may yet see a few changes at the top of the League - we wait developments. As to official confirmation of the "re-claiming" of points given to Richmond - the following was received recently :-
Thank you for your letter regarding Clonmel.
It was clarified at last weeks Junior committee meeting that Richmond RFC were not awarded the 3 points as shown on the League Tables.
A misunderstanding on behalf of the competitions Manager as to what sanction was applied led to the points been shown on the Web site.
The Competitions Manager has been instructed to readjust the League Tables accordingly.
I hope this clarifies the matter.
Prior to the game on Sunday there was a pre-match lunch for invited guests to honour the O'Neill Cup winning Team of 40 years ago. The Club President John Field was a member of that team and all his fellow team-mates and guests were invited along to join in the celebrations. A great day was had by all and the celebrations went on long into the night. Four special presentations were also made to founder members John Wolfe; Paddy Hurley, Glandore; John Hosford; and Myles O'Brien with John Wolfe responding appropriately for the recipients, Presentation of a Club Tie and Photograph of the winning team were presented to the O'Neill Cup winning Team of the 1970/71 season.
Sunday 15th January 2012
Our J2's are playing hosts to Tralee in the South Munster League with the KO time of 1.00pm, while the J2's host Kilfeacle at the usual time of 2.30pm in the J1 league.
Earlier there is a pre-match Lunch in the Clubhouse for invited guests, and presentations will be made by Club President John Field to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the O'Neill Cup winning team of 1971, and also a few special presentations to some founding members of the current Club.
Sunday 8th January 2012
This was the second trip to Limerick for our J1 team in a month – the first against Richmond on the 11th December ended in a 4 point defeat – and then last Sunday 8th January against Galbally and sadly another defeat this time by 5 points. All present would agree that both were very winnable match’s on the day but on each occasion there were problems converting acknowledged match dominance into points on the board. As usual on Sunday last, like any other day, the lads played their hearts out over the 80 minutes and were feeling quietly confident facing into the second half with just the 5 points down and having a good wind advantage also. However the scores did not come despite good attacking sequences as well as disappointment in not converting penalty opportunities. The final score was 8 – 3. This latest defeat effectively dashes hopes of a league success this year – short of a few miraculous results - but there are a few Cups coming up shortly so there is still plenty to fight for. Next Sunday we entertain Kilfeacle at home – which will hopefully see us back into winning ways.
St. Stephen's Day Tag Event
At the outset the Officers and Committee of Skibbereen RFC would like to take this opportunity to wish all our members and supporters a happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year. From the Minis right through to the Adult section the continued success of the Club depends very much on the voluntary efforts of so many, and this little acknowledgement is to let you know that your contribution is warmly appreciated - most especially by all the players in all the various sections. Thanks again, and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
N.B. On St. Stephen's day the Club are hosting a Tag Rugby Festival and all proceeds on the day will be donated to local charities. Tag is a non contact form of rugby and anybody interested in taking part should be at the Clubhouse at 2.30pm. Afterwards there will be music and craic in the Clubhouse.

Sunday 11th December
Crunch time in Limerick it certainly was - and Richmond came away with the points after what was a hectic battle, not alone from Richmond but the elements also - it was cold wet and windy with even a few hailshowers thrown in. Our lads battled well but in the end could not close the gap of 9-13 even though there were plenty of opportunities - right up to the 80th minute - but it was not to be. We were the better team on the day but we made a few mistakes also - at critical times - and we left it after us. Richmond were thrilled to have held out for the win - and they knew it.
Clonakilty J2's failed to show at the home venue and so Skibbereeen J2's go fprward to the next stage.
Sunday 4th December
Our J1's recorded their best result so far in the League with a comprehensive win 42 - 0 over Clanwilliam on Sunday last, and in doing so also gained a valuable bonus point. Sadly our J2's were not as successful and they will be kicking themselves having lost out to Carrigaline in extra time. Leading by a single point on full time and happy to hold out for the whistle, we gave away a penalty in extra time and Carrigaline didn't miss the opportunity and ran out winners 15 - 13. However the can be back in the driving seat this weekend if they can secure a home win against Clonakilty.
Minis sections U7/8/9/10/11/12's train every Saturday morning from 10.00 - 11.30am
Please note the following training days and times for the the U13/14/15's
U13's (born 1999), U14's (born 1998) and U15's (born 1997) train every Monday night from 7pm till 8.30pm at the Skibbereen RFC clubhouse pitch on the Bypass. From October they will also train on Wednesday nights from 7 till 8pm. All welcome. For information ring John on 0860651014.
Membership Subscriptions 2011/2012
Its come to that time of year again when subscriptions are due so hopefully all concerned will be kind enough to pay their ‘dues’ as quickly as possible. There is no mystery as to what one has to pay as the categories are pretty straight forward. (See under Membership) However an important addition to the categories is the Family Membership and will be helpful to families who may have a few kids interested in playing and of course Mum and Dad will automatically be full members also and have the same entitlements as every other member. I’m thinking here of the mad scramble every year for Heineken Cup, Autumn Internationals as well as Six Nation Rugby tickets which can be as rare as ‘hen’s teeth’ and are only available to fully paid up members – so there are advantages of membership.
If you are planning to hold an event - 21st; Engagement; Retirement; Christmas; New Year etc. why not give the Rugby Club an opportunity to host it - you might be pleasantly surprised. Not too many weeks left to Christmas - do you have your party booked yet? Dowload, complete and return the Booking Form and be first to secure this much sought after venue for your festive celebrations.
