On Monday last, the Carbery U14 hurlers lined out for the inter-divisional hurling blitz in CIT, playing in the B section which contained six teams. A win over Carrigdhoun in their opening game was followed by a win for Seandun B over the same opposition. This meant a deciding game versus the city boys, which Carbery duly won, to emerge as group winners.

With Imokilly B emerging from a group which included Duhallow and Muskerry, the final of the B competition saw Carbery open up a half-time lead of 0-10 to 0-3, after playing with a strong breeze. With the West Cork defence well in control throughout, this lead was never threatened, with a final score-line of 0-15 to 0-6 displaying a fine scoring return from a forty minute game.

A notable feature of the tournament was the fact that all 21 Carbery players made a significant contribution in each of the three games, before team captain, John O'Sullivan of Ahan Gales, finally lifted the tournament trophy, which was a worthy reward for all concerned. Meanwhile, Avondhu won the A tournament after victories over both Seandun and Imokilly

On Tuesday, over forty U13 hurlers from Carbery clubs assembled in Bandon, under the emerging players initiative, for a session with GPO Noel Crowley and GDA Kevin O'Donovan and no doubt these players will reassemble in 2012 in an attempt to retain the crown won by their older counterparts.

Meanwhile, divisional sessions continue throughout the week, with the Cabery Beara U14, U15 and U16 footballers training at Rossmore on Wednesday and the U13 emerging footballers meeting in three different groups at Skibbereen on Thursday.
