Coachford Greenway

Further recognition for the Coachford Greenway multi-purpose amenity at Inniscarra Lake in County Cork.

The National Coarse Fishing Federation representing Ireland’s coarse and predator anglers, and Inniscarra Lake Tourism Development Ltd are proud to announce that Coachford Greenway in County Cork has been awarded National Waymarked Trails status from Sport Ireland.  This achievement wholly supports our objectives to develop fisheries with facilities that can also be used by other outdoor recreational users whilst supporting the environment and our bio-diversity.

 

In 2016 the NCFFI consulted Sport Ireland for their recommendations on the facility and working with Inniscarra Lake Tourism Development Ltd have implemented the works required to achieve this status. The venue is already an internationally recognised world class angling facility and now has its place on the map as a linear trail. Already used heavily by the local community the Greenway is situated in the beautiful Lee Valley enhances the offering of the local area to the visiting outdoor enthusiast.

 

The 2.8km Linear Park is a purpose built off-road trail developed to provide a safe recreational facility for walkers, cyclists and anglers. The walkway has been graded as Easy provides for a 1hr 30-minute leisurely walk or 30 min cycle ride. En route visitors can enjoy beautiful flora and fauna; animals and birdlife that live on or near the water to include Heron’s, Kingfishers, Geese and the occasional sea eagle.  At the trailhead there is free parking for over 20 cars with vehicular access to the walkway itself limited.  Anglers can access the trail by signing for a key at O’Callaghan’s Bar in Coachford. There is a 15kph speed limit and plenty of lay-by areas to keep the route safe for walkers and cyclists. The venue also presents perfect viewing opportunities for rowing activities on the lake being situated directly opposite the Rowing Ireland Headquarters.

 

The trail is clearly signposted and just 2km from all the facilities of Coachford village. This along with easy access to a number of towns and villages in the Lee Valley provides a further boost for domestic and even overseas tourism in the area.

 

Tommy Lawton speaking on behalf of the National Coarse Fishing Federation of Ireland and Inniscarra Lake Tourism Development Ltd says: –

 

This recognition awards the efforts of those members of the NCFFI executive, the directors of Inniscarra Lake Tourism development and our partners and is very proudly received by all involved. The key to it’s success is the local community working with sponsors and partners to promote the venue with support from the landowners ESB. Funding awarded from Cork County Council, Rob Allen Engineering, National Coarse Fishing Federation of Ireland and Inniscarra Lake Tourism Development Ltd via the REDZ scheme enabled us to enhance the Greenway with the addition of signage, way markers and most recently with seating. The Coachford Greenway is a direct source of benefit to the local economy which will now be enhanced with additional promotion available from http://www.irishtrails.ie. To extend the Greenway to commence in Coachford Village and continue around the lake would make for an attractive addition for the future.  Inniscarra Lake Tourism Development Limited who are responsible for the day to day management of the facility are a voluntary organisation and welcome donations from users to help with the upkeep.

Coachford AFC

March 21st

U17s National Cup

The Coachford U17 soccer team will host Willow Park from Athlone next Sunday at 2pm at the Glebe in Coachford in the quarter final clash of the FAI National Challenge Cup. This game was supposed to be played on March 4th but had to be postponed due to the snow storm that weekend. Willow Park will be favourites to go away with the win but  home advantage and recent form may see Coachford upset the odds. Home support is vital if the local lads have any chance of advancing to the semi final. “We are appealing to everyone to come out and support Coachford in this vital game for the boys. They have worked really hard to get to this stage of the competition and it would mean an awful lot for them to win.”  Said Paddy Martin team coach.

March 15th

A big thank you to Mr Tony O’Connell of “CONTAINMENT SERVICE PROVIDERS” for their generous sponsorship of a full set of kit for our schoolboys club.Sponsorship at this level is always hard to come by and the club is greatly appreciative when it does come by. Without this level of corporate sponsorship the club would not survive.
Pictured below from the club are Joe Ronan and Ross Mulligan along with Tony O’Connell who presented the kit to the lads.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

March 11th

Another weekend of frustration for Coachford AFC as yet again the weather impacted on 2 of the clubs games being forced to be postponed. The Premier team and the Under 16s away games were called off however the pitch in the Glebe was able to accommodate today’s U17 clash. The boys won easily but it came at a price with Luke Casey being carried off with a very serious leg injury which will put him in doubt for the U17 FAI National Cup quarter Final.

Super Sunday  –Postponed

Coachford Soccer club gears up for one of the biggest weekends of its recent history when two of their teams play Cup quarter finals this Sunday in Coachford. Dubbed locally as ‘Soccer Super Sunday’ the Coachford AFC Premier adult team will be first to play on Sunday March 4th when they line out against Mayfield side, Village United at 10.45am. This is a big game for the lads as hopes for winning the league fade, this cup competition becomes very important if they hope to pick up any silverware this season. The lads qualified for the quarter final after defeating Pearse Celtic on penalties 14-13 in the previous round. The  Coachford U17s will line out at 2pm against Athlone side, Willow Park in the quarter final of the FAI National U17 Cup. The Youth team have captured the imagination of the community with their stunning performances and work rate throughout the competition so far. The boys have already won the Cork league and are now anxious to secure a semi-final place and ultimately the double this season. “We are very lucky to have these two big games at home and we are asking that our supporter come out to cheer on both teams. Home advantage is a great boost to any side but it will only benefit the lads if the supporters come and support them and cheer them on in both games. There is no admission charge and we are encouraging families to come along and enjoy both games.” Said club Chairman, Peter O’Riordan.

Coachford AFC continue to defy all the odds and maintain their presence in the top tier of the Cork AUL league. The adult team have played 7 games so far this season and are in third place on the table. The next few games will be vital for the lads and the ever encroaching GAA season could have a negative effect on their ability to put their best team out for every game.

The under 17s have their league won and are now preparing for the last 16 game against Oranmore in the FAI Under 17s Challenge Cup.

The Under 16s are halfway through their season and are well placed to finish in the top two or even finish as champions.

Congratulations to the Aghabullogue  GAA Table Quiz team who came second in the County Scór Final last week. The team was, Tomás Healy, Aodán Healy, Paul Ring and Tom Long.

Aghabullogue Table Quiz Team March 2018

March 11th

Another weekend of no games for Aghabullogue GAA.

The season is having a very slow start with the Intermediate footballers playing only 2 league games and the hurlers still to play a competitive match. Championship is looming and the lack of preparation could prove to be a negative factor in April as both teams play their opening games in this years campaigns. The U21 footballer’s 2nd round game was also cancelled and this re fixture will now also add to the headache for the club as fixtures will begin to back up and crowd the already hectic lead in to Championship month of April.The lack of adequate pitches is a huge issue and this weekend brought that home with Macroom, Kanturk and more importantly Coachford pitches being declared unplayable. This is not a good place to be for a club that has two intermediate teams to prepare for championship. The provision for a sand based playing pitch must be seriously looked at by the GAA club.  This pitch has been closed for almost 5 months with only one game for players over 12  (Intermediate Football v Newmarket) being played there in that time.

Aghabullogue 0.08 V Canovee 3.07 Match Report 
Carrigadrohid  at 1.30pm

Aghabullogue start this years Championship campaign on Saturday when they play Canovve in the B grade of this competition.

Every team is guaranteed 2 games in this years Championship. The boys will face stiff opposition in this local derby. Canovee will be anxious to start their quest for honours with a win against a club that they always consider shouldn’t even be playing football. The winners of the clash will go forward to the quarter final while the losers will play the losers of Aghinagh and Iveleary.

Aghabullogue defeated Macroom in last years first round game, lost to Ballinora and Éire Óg in round 2 . The B grade should suit Aghabullogue better but they will certainly find Canovee a really hard opening encounter.

Cork County Division 2 Football League

Coachford at 2.30pm
Match report

A new year and a new season in GAA kicks off.

Aghabullogue GAA enjoyed an up and down closed season. The Astro Turf development has hit a few delays mainly due to the weather but the club are hopeful that it will be completed by the end of February.

Committee room disagreements broke out over what trainer should be appointed to manage the footballers and hurlers fitness and preparedness for the season ahead. Thankfully both sides eventually saw sense and the players have begun preparing for what will no doubt be a really tough year.

The Footballers showed promise in 2017 and ended the year with a terrific league win  which has promoted them to the very competitive County Division 2 League. Their Championship ended  at the quarter final stage after losing to Rockchapel by 2 goals in a replay. The footballers had left an 9 point lead slip (admittedly against a strong wind) in the first game against Rockchapel and hopefully will have learned a lot from last years defeat.

The Footballers are scheduled to start their 2018 league campaign on Sunday February 4th when they take on Newmarket in Coachford at 2.30pm but this fixture looks extremely doubtful. If the pitch had to be closed to U14s in December it is highly unlikely that it would be playable for adults after two more months of rain but here’s hoping!

https://www.independent.ie/regionals/corkman/sport/gaa/rockchapel-delight-36153985.html

The hurlers had an excellent start to 2017 defeating St. Finbarr’s second team in the first round in May. They then went down to 2016 All Ireland Junior Champions, Mayfield in August and suffered their  second championship defeat when they lost by just a point to Na Piarsaigh.

College in Munster Camogie Final

The very best of luck to Coachford College Senior Camogie team when they play Presentation Thurles in the Munster Senior A Camogie final on Saturday, 13th January at 1pm in Charleville GAA grounds.

It’s the Tipperary College’s third time in a row that they have reached the ‘A’Munster Final. The have lost the last two and lets hope it’s third time Unlucky for the Tipp side again in 2018.

Make no mistake this is going to be a tough battle for Coachford and the girls will have to be at their very best to pull off a victory in this, the Harty Cup of Camogie. A lot of the girls would have been involved in last years Junior title win and they will be determined to win again on Saturday.

Listen to the Presentation College’s coach, Barry Ryan speaking on TippFm about the game on 38 minutes into this clip.
