Coolmeen had a fantastic victory over near neighbours Kildysart in the Junior B, Div 7 league game played on March 16th . Score : Coolmeen 2 – 12 Kildysart 0 - 07. 

Kildysart led by 3 points to 1 early in the game, with Aidan Corry getting our score. Cathal Brooks made a brilliant save at this stage and with Declan Casey dominating at centre back we took control of the game. Our midfield partnership of Donal Houlihan and Joe Corry lorded midfield and set up plenty chances for the forwards.

Points from Padraig Corry, Donal Houlihan (2), Gary Meaney, Aidan Corry (2) and Joe Corry gave us half-time lead of Coolmeen 8 points – Kildysart 5 points.

Kildysart started the second half strongly but sound defensive play by Martin Lucas and David Hehir kept them at bay. Points from Enda Haugh and Kieran Neenan extended our lead. A brilliant opportunistic goal from ace poacher Kieran Neenan was the highlight of the game. A further goal from Aidan Corry plus points from Padraig and Enda Corry confirmed the victory.

Others to impress were Aidan Hanrahan, Barry Vaughan and Alan Corry. Substitutes Simon Murphy, Patrick Hehir, Stevie Murphy, Anthony King and Brendan Kennedy did well when introduced.
