MOURNEABBEY played Inch Rovers in the Senior League Final in Fermoy on Sunday 12th May. This was a very entertaining and competitive contest but Inch's experience proved too much for the Mourneabbey side.
Mourneabbey started well with the aid of a strong breeze and a point a piece from Roberta Harrington, Emma Forde and Brid O'Sullivan within the first ten minutes put Mourneabbey in the lead. Inch fought back and started to get some scores on the board.
As halftime approached, Inch managed to get a goal and the score at half time was Inch Rovers 1-4 to 0-06 Mourneabbey. There were some competitive exchanges during the second half and despite their best efforts, Mourneabbey conceded 1-3. Mourneabbey refused to lose sight of the game and fought back with great resolve to get within 4 points of the Inch team.
A fine point from substitute, Kathryn Coakley, and goal from Doireann O'Sullivan reduced the deficit. However, Inch Rovers finished out winners at the final whistle.
The final score was 2-11 to 1-10. Mourneabbey Scorers: Doireann O'Sullivan 1-5, Emma Forde 0-1, Roberta Harrington 0-1, Brid O'Sullivan 0-1, Niamh O'Sullivan 0-1 and Kathryn Coakley 0-1.

Mourneabbey Community Council
A busy meeting of the community council toke place in the community council room last Monday night.
Recent work in the community centre was outlined by Chairperson Liam Madden.
The new doors under the stage and the new emergency door in the community centre were complemented. The need for new chairs in the complex was also discussed and it was agreed the next quiz to be held in September all funds raised would go towards that.
The proposed rubbish collection did not go ahead this year as the council would not agree for us to bring in the rubbish ourselves. Agreement was made that we will look into another parish clean-up perhaps next year.
Efforts would be made throughout the year to perhaps to identify the worse black spots for rubbish and put up signs. Liam said we were also taking security measures in the community complex and these were nearly completed.
The election for a new rep for the town land of Knockbrack is to be delayed until next September and one more town land would be picked for same.
The schools sports was also discussed, this is to take place in June. A meeting is to be called shortly on the planning for that. The Community Council was also approached by a number of people about a possible tops of the parish or drama-type play taking place.
It was agreed once the sports was over we would met a couple of interested people with the possibility of doing something in the autumn. Full minutes of the meeting are available on the website.
The community council would also like to congratulate all the children from Burnfort and Analeentha school who made their confirmation in Analeentha last Tuesday and the children of Analeentha who received their communion last Saturday.
Well done also to Fergal Cronin who was elected to the Mallow Town Council at the Fine Gael Co-option election. We wish him well for the future.
