CORK HURLING TEAM AT GOLEEN – The Cork U15 hurling development squad will be at the Goleen Community Sports Center on Sunday next July 27th to train and play a match. Present will be the cream of the best young up and coming hurlers from right around the county who will one day go on to represent the rebel county at minor and senior level. This is a great honour for Mizen Rovers club and the realization of a long standing invitation to our good friend Ger Cunningham to bring a Cork squad to Goleen someday. This great Cork hurling legend is head coach to this squad and as part of the day has offered to do a coaching session with other aspiring young hurlers from the area. The Games Development Administrators for the region have recognized the importance of this hurling bonanza for the promotion of hurling in the west of the county and therefore have also decided to hold one of their Monster Hurling Blitzes at Goleen to coincide with the visit of the County team. All in all Sunday will be a festival of hurling on the Mizen and everyone is invited to come along and savour the action which begins at 10am and continues till 2.30pm with main game at 12.30pm.If you wish wear your Rebel colours to bring a real Rebel county flavour to the proceedings.
CUL CAMP 2014 – As we said last week the Field is a busy place these days. No sooner will the Rebel hurlers have left the Complex than an invasion of young sports people will take place. On Monday morning close on 100 kids from all over Ireland and the world along with some of the top hurling and football players/coaches in the county will begin a week of activities that is Cúl Camp 2014.This has been one of the most popular summer camps in the region over many years with places for the week now closed. Again come along for a look if your about. Thanks to Timmy and Maura for putting the preparations in place and to Tommy and his gang for having the venue looking well for all these events.
MINOR FOOTBALL –The Minor football team has been busy over the last number of weeks preparing for their first round Championship date with St. James. This game is fixed for Rath on Monday evening next 28th with a throw in time of 7.30pm.Once more we ask you to come along and show your support for these young footballers to help them progress to the next round.
U14 Football – If you read the newsletter on Thursday then take note that theres an U14 football league game V Muintir Bhaire this evening up at the Field.A great way to pass an hour on a summers evening is to come along and watch this talented bunch strut their stuff on the green pasture.
FLAG DAY 2014–All the aforementioned activities impact on the Club funds and so we say a big THANK YOU to all those good people who gave so generously to our collectors on the Clubs recent flag day.

ROUTE 2 CROOK –Yes, we’re heading towards that time of year again when one of the biggest events on the Club’s calendar takes place. Final preparations for the 2014 running of ‘The Route’ are nearly complete with the event taking place on SUNDAY 17th AUGUST. Start time will be 3pm for the main field of runners and 2pm for walkers and split the distance and the time for the U16’s.Yeah your dead right that’s the same day as ‘The Rebels’ play their hurling semi-final so we might try and tweak the time a little forward to make sure we have every participant over the finish line before the sliothar is thrown in. What nicer place to watch Cork qualify for the Final !!!
