The Fe 14 boys took part in Division 1 of the Feile Peil last weekend. They started their group campaign on Friday night in Killorglin with a hard fought victory over Galway champions St James. At half time they led by 5 points 2-03 to 0-05. More goals in the 2nd half proved decisive as they won on a final score of 4-03 to 0-08. Next up was the home side Laune Rangers. Nemo were dominant in the 1st half and led 2-06 to 1-01 at half time. Laune did rally in the second half but in the end Nemo won 3-10 to 2-03. They then travelled back to their host club Austin Stacks in Tralee for a well-earned rest. Saturday morning saw them face their hosts in their final group game. Stacks were excellent on the Saturday morning and defeated Nemo 2-07 to 1-05. But Nemo had done enough to top their group. Of itself this was a great achievement for the boys.

They then travelled to Fossa near Killarney for a quarter final with academy team New York. This was a rip roaring contest which had everything. New York started brightly and were soon 1-02 to 0-00 ahead. But Nemo stormed back into the game. A lovely point by Aaron Delaney was followed by a super goal by Robert Dillon. Soon there was just a point between the teams 1-05 to 1-04 approaching half time. Nemo had a free that struck the upright and so went in at the break a point down. The second half belonged to Nemo they dominated throughout but just couldn’t convert their possession into scores. With a minute remaining they were one point ahead 1-07 to 1-06. Their defense had been immense during the second period. But right at the whistle from a line ball, New York conjured up am equalizing point to send the game into extra time. In extra time the New York boys fitness told as they exertions of the second half of normal time told on Nemo. In the end New York won 4-10 to 1-08. But the Nemo boys can be very proud of their efforts. New York went on to lose the semifinal to Castleknock by a single point. Castleknock won the division 1 trophy. So it is some consolation to Nemo that the boys were not far off the top teams. Definitely a glass half full occasion. Many thanks to our hosts Austin Stacks who simply could not have done any more for us. They were wonderful hosts.

Fe 11 Hurling League vs Sliabh Rua Mon July 4th

The Fe 11 boys completed their hurling league campaign this week with two very narrow defeats to Sliabh Rua. In truth there was nothing between the sides and both Nemo Dubh and Nemo Glas can deem themselves unlucky not to win. Both teams played very well and the skill level on view was of a very high standard. The Fe 11 boys can take a well-deserved break now for the Summer having completed all their league games in both hurling and football.
