James French – Ireland U20 Squad


Congratulations and best wishes to James French UCC and Munster Academy on his inclusion on the 23 man match day squad for the opening U20 Six Nations Championships in Brive against France on Friday night.

He won Ireland U19 caps against France last year on a short tour there and he no doubt plans to add to his tally this weekend.

Hockey: Senior Girls Munster Cup heartbreak


It was heartbreak for our senior girls’ team on Friday 26th in the opening round replay against Mt Mercy girls. Tight defences dominated a tense game with so little space that only one penalty corner was conceded. Bandon had the advantage of that and it took a fine save to deny an opening goal. Even extra time failed to break the stalemate.

The resulting five shuttles were also tied 2-2 until the final round when Mt Mercy scored the vital goal. The girls played with wonderful skill and spirit.

Rugby: JCT Reach first Semi Final

JCT Reach first Semi Final

History was made on the UL 4G synthetic pitch on Wednesday where Louis Archer calmly slotted the stoppage time penalty to clinch a 17-15 win over two time cup winners Casteltroy College. Bandon started slowly against the breeze and missed a penalty after 20 minutes.

Good combinations by forwards and backs put Kyle Buttimer away for a fine try converted by Archer before half time. A penalty by Castletroy scrum half Jack Oliver before half time left the score at 7-3. Castletroy started the stronger against the breeze in the second half and a break from deep led to an unconverted try. Bandon retook the initiative applying pressure and freshly introduced Chris Walton scored after repeated forward drives, with Archer adding the points to retake a 14-8 lead. Castletroy were not to be denied and relentless pressure resulted in a converted try under the posts to retake the lead 15 -14. Bandon upped their game forcing several penalties in the Castletroy half but couldn’t break down the desperate last line of defence.

Cue the final penalty and wild celebrations. Our semi final opponents will be CBC.

Dogs for the disabled presentation

We had a heartwarming afternoon when we presented €580 for ‘Dogs for the Disabled’ to Isla and Ceri Jeffers and George the dog.

Student Council had held a casual day in aid of this extremely worthwhile charity and also Co-action, Clonakilty.

Rugby: Junior Cup BGS 3-12 St. Munchins

Our junior team put in a good performance against cup favourites St. Munchins yesterday.

Conceding an early try they played with spirit and good organisation into the wind to force a penalty which out half Louis Archer put over confidently to leave the half time score at 5-3.

With the breeze the Bandon boys put a lot of pressure on St. Munchins but failed to breach a stout defence. Late in the game the visitors made a break up the pitch and after sustained pressure scored a converted try to secure the win 12-3.

The BGS lads played with confidence and can look forward to a quarter final match having got a bye in the play-off draw.

Rugby Senior Cup: BGS 7-5 St. Munchins

Our young SCT earned their place in the Munster Schools Cup quarter finals with a narrow 7-5 victory over St. Munchin’s College at Bandon RFC on 18th January.

Having seen an earlier penalty kick by Jack Crowley come off the post, Bandon struck before half time with a slick back move off a lineout when Rowen Palmer put Victor Lovell away for a super try under the posts, converted by Crowley.

Stout defending on the line before half time and a missed penalty by St. Munchins left the half time score 7-0.

Backed by a strong breeze an early second half try by St. Munchins was not converted.

The inexperienced young Bandon side played with true grit, passion and skill into the wind. Defending heroically at either end of the half without yielding even a penalty let to ever more desperate St. Munchins forward drives petered out with a great tackle from Bruce Mathews forcing the opposing winger to lose the ball into touch.
