The Seniors' current run of good form continued last weekend in the Semi-Final of the Pop Keller Cup. They were too strong for Ballincollig, particularly in the last quarter and were decisive 4-1 winners. The 'Hall fell behind early on, but fought back and deservedly equalised through a John Healy penalty. The early stages of the second half were very even, but the 'Hall's fitness proved all important in the last quarter. Here, goals from James O'Leary, John Healy and Derrick Bowen were enough to see Douglas through to the final against Carrigaline. This match is fixed for Thursday night, June 1st., with the venue to be confirmed.
The Under 11's were also in sparkling form in the Marina Cup against Lakewood Athletic. They ran out 7-1 winners with a terrific performance. The goals were scored by Eoin O'Leary (2), Ian Bermingham (penalty), Alec Rose, Adam Doyle, Ronan Tolman and Kevin Murphy. This win reflects the good football being played by this side, clearly well recovered from their Cup Semi Final defeat.
The only fixture to hand is the Pop Keller Cup Final on Thursday night - let's hope it will be fourth time lucky in the final of this cup.

Douglas Hall 2 V. Carrigaline 6
This was a very poor performance from our girls this week. The only two good things to come out of this match were the outstanding goals. First a terrific individual goal from Jennifer Walshe. Second Eileen Collins spectacular goal from the halfway line. So its back to the drawing board for next week. The girls to try hardest for Douglas were, Chiara Murray, Eileen Collins, goalkeeper Gillian Boyd, Ciara Twomey and Jennifer Walshe.


Douglas Hall 8 V. Midleton 1
Another excellent team performance from the Douglas Girls again this week. With Captain "Fantastic" Jennifer Walshe adds another 4 goals to her tally. Other goals coming from Naomi O'Leary (2), Kim Murray (1), and Riona Hegarty (1). Girl of the match has to go to Jennifer Walshe, who could do no wrong. Also an outstanding performance from Laura Healy, who dominated the defence. Others to play well, were Donna O'Leary, Caroline Hawks, Aoife Hynes, Naomi O'Leary, Jessica Hayes and super -sub Clodagh Ryan.


U 12 C; Douglas and Bandon met in the SouthEast Hurling last Monday. For the Douglas lads it is their first year in competition. Douglas were in control from the start - their half back line and mid field gave the forwards a plentiful supply of the ball. The Bandon goalkeeper was in great form and denied the Douglas forwards of certain goals. The Douglas forward division did get through for two goals and led 2 - 1 to 0 - 0 at the break. The second half was all one way traffic as Douglas went on to record victory. Ian Turner, Brendan Cashman, Cian Alcock and Jason Murray played well.
U 13 A: Douglas and Midleton were fixed to play in the 13A Grade Hurling League. Midleton failed to fulfil the fixture. As a result Douglas were awarded the points. This team has now 100% record after series of the game.
U 14 A Douglas and Glen Rovers met in the A League. The Douglas team started in whirlwind fashion scored 3 - 2 without a reply. The scorers were Brian O'Connor (2), Barry Fitzgerald (1). The Glen took over after this and ran out comfortable winners. Finbar O 'Donovan played very well for Douglas.
U 12 Douglas and Glen Rovers met in the first round of the U 12 Hurling League. The halfback line and mid-field took command from the start and gave the Douglas forwards a plentiful supply of the ball. The Glen netminder made a number of vital saves to deny the Douglas forward section of certain some goals. Goals scored by Brian Collins and Patrick Carroll eventually broke the deadlock. Douglas led 3 -4 to 0 - 0 at the interval. Wind assisted, the Northsiders attacked after the break but some fine defence play by Oisin McGrath, Patrick Carroll and Ian Bermingham kept the Glen scores to the minimum. Two late goals by Dayne O'Leary sealed a comprehensive victory for Douglas. Others to impress were Daniel Olden, Jonathan O'Connell and Terry O'Connell.
U14 SE Douglas U 14 hurlers recorded a well-deserved victory over Shamrocks in the SouthEast Hurling League. Daniel Olden, James Higgins and Eoghan Heffernan played well on the night.

Friday night June 2nd promises to be a night to remember for the players and mentors of College Corinthians' Under Eleven First Division side, Douglas Corinthians. On the night in question they travel to Casement Park to take on Everton in the final of the Under Eleven First Division League, with hopes high that they will create a little bit of history.
It has been a fairy tale season for the Corinthians' lads, initially entered in the league to gain some valuable experience, they have turned in some excellent performances throughout the season, losing only one match and finishing top of their Conor O' Reilly was outstasection, thereby qualifying for the Semi Final of the U11 1st Division league. Nufarm provided the opposition in the Semi Final and following an exciting contest it was Corinthians who emerged victorious on a 4 - 3 score line. Reaching such a final in normal circumstances would represent a fine achievement for any side, but what makes this achievement so unique is that the entire Corinthians side will be under age again next year.
They face a difficult task against a physically stronger Everton side, but the management trio of John Turner, Danny Drennan and Martin Higgins will be hoping that the team will be on top form on the night. They warmed up for the final with a comfortable 4 - 1 victory over Avondale Utd in the Marina Cup last Saturday night, with goals by Jamie Drennan (3) and Eoin McCarthy. Conor O' Reilly was outstanding in midfield and he received fine support from Ian Turner, Colin Hammond and David O' Sullivan.

The Club held its annual fourth class schools blitz last Tuesday night, with St. Anthonys Ballinlough, St. Columbas Douglas, Holy Cross Mahon and Scoil Chríost Rí taking part. The games provided some fine entertainment, with St. Anthonys and St. Columbas qualifying for the final. The final itself was a cracker, with St. Anthonys racing into a 2 - 0 lead, via an own goal and a fine individual effort by Conor Rigney. Douglas however fought back strongly after the break and reduced the arrears midway through the second half when Jamie Drennan was on target. Hard as they tried however they just could not force an equaliser.
Colin O'Brien from Cork City came along on the night to present the winning trophy to the St. Anthonys Captain, Brian Wise.
Special thanks to the Schools involved and particularly the teachers, without whom the competition would not be possible.


Under 16 (1999)
Having reached the play-off stage of the 1999 league, the Under 16 team were drawn to play Valley Rovers. In a very exciting game Douglas came out on top on a scoreline of 1-3 to 0-3 to go through to the quarter final of the competition. Emma Downey in goal was in great form while Treasa Buckley Fiona McSweeney and Anne-Marie Downey played well in defence. Eilish Murphy in mid-field had a great game while up front Ciara Kennefick got the gaol after a great team effort with Michelle O'Donovan re-directing a Fiona O'Donovan free into Louise O'Regan who's shot was half-stopped only to be finished off by Ciara.
In the quarter-final we played Kilbrittan and in hard fought game we were narrowly beaten. We got off to a good start when a long range effort by Fiona O'Donovan found the net but Kilbrittan fought back and went ahead. Douglas again rallied with a Louise O'Regan free went all the way to the net. Emma Downey in gaol was once again playing a blinder and Laura Walsh and Natasha Flanagan working hard in defence. However Kilbrittan finished the stronger and Douglas had no response on the night. The girls should be proud of their efforts in this highly competitive competition. Our thanks to all our supporters who travelled in numbers to give the team a great lift.
Under 15 (1999)
This is a Seandun run competition and helps in the preparation of teams for the next Under 16 season. This is being played as a blitz competition with Douglas playing Glen Rovers and Mayfield in a round-robin format on Tuesday 25th in one section with a similar set-up taking place in the Barrs. in our first game we had a good win over Mayfield who had also been beaten by the Glen girls. So the game between Douglas and the Glen would determine the winners of the section. Playing with great heart and determination the Douglas girls recorded a fine victory. An so we qualified for the city final to be played in the City Division grounds in Ballinlough.
Douglas faced the Barrs in the final and from the start we applied the pressure and were rewarded with a Ciara Kenneffick goal. A number of points were exchanged but the goal separated the sides in the end. This was a great result for Douglas and all involved are to be congratulated. There were many fine performances over the two nights. Young Deirdre Murphy played in goal. Laura and Andrea Walsh, Natasha Flannagan, Eilish Murphy, Catriona and Ashling Vaughan were in the defence, Orla Curtin, Elaine O'Connell in mid-field and up front Helen O'Mahony, Fiona O'Donovan, Louise O'Regan, Ciara Kennifick, Michelle O'Donovan, Teresa Buckley and sub. Kate Barry all played their parts in a memorable night. Orla Cutin was the worthy captain and led by example. Well done girls.
Douglas Vs Passage
This was our first game of the season, in the under -11, Seandun. The girls were full of excitement and ready to go on Sunday 21May. Kick off time was 10.30a.m. and the sun shining. Trainers and mentors were just as excited as the players.
The girls played a great team game with goals scored by: Aileen O'Donovan, Zoe Dunlea, Rachel O'Sullivan, Aine Corkery, Hilary O'Connell & Lynda McCarthy. With a special mention for Julia White.
