Senior Footballers
Well done to the senior footballers who had a good win over Monaleen in the quarter final of the Munster championship on Sunday last in the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick on a final score of 2-11 to 0-7. They are now into the semi final against the Waterford champions to be played on the weekend of the 13th of November in a Cork venue.
After the excitement and celebrations of winning the county final, it was good to get back on the road again. Monaleen started well and managed to create a few goal chances, but good defending by the Ross lads and excellent goal keeping from Paul Shanhan prevented them from registering a goal. Ross settled well and by half time they were leading on a score of 1-8 to 0-3, with the impressive Alan Jennings getting the goal. Ross started the second half as they finished the first and in their first attack, John Hayes was fouled when in on goal and from the resulting penalty John Hayes finished to the net to register the second goal of the game. This score gave the Ross lads a cushion that they held until the final whistle, winning out by 10 points in the end.
Team: Paul Shanahan, Micheal Kelly, Brian Shanahan, Robert Hegarty, Robbie Kiely, Thomas O’Rourke, Jerry O’Riordan, Kevin McMahon, James Fitzpatrick, Alan Jennings, Chris O’Donovan, Micheal Mennis, John O’Rourke, Seamus Hayes, John Hayes. Subs: Anthony Roche, Kieran Fitzpatrick, Stephen Murray, Padraig Hodnett, Sean O’Neill, Mark Ronan.
Scorers: John Hayes (1-3), Alan Jennings (1-0), John O’Rourke, Chris O’Donovan (0-2 each), Seamus Hayes, Micheal Kelly, Jerry O’Riordan and Brian Shanahan (0-1 each).

Under 12 footballers
Hard luck to the under 12 (B) footballers were in action on Thursday night last, October 27th against Bandon in the semi final of the plate. In a very entertaining game with some excellent football being played by both sides, Bandon led at half time by four points. The young Rangers showed great heart with a never say die attitude and never let Bandon to far out of sight; in a high scoring game for this time of year, scores were coming fast and furious with some excellent points being scored by both teams. In the end Bandon ran out winners on a score line of 2-12 to 1-13.
Panel: Cian Barry, Evan Fitz, Robbie Wilson, Ciaran McCarthy, Colm Cuinnea, Paul Murphy, Bosco de Prado, Colm Hayes, Ronan Hayes, Ben Linehan Alan Luuk, Brian Collins Olan Murphy, Fionn Lawlor, James O’Keffee.
Then on Monday night, October 31st, the under 12 (A) team were in action in the final of their plate against a Drimoleague side. Once again this was a very entertaining game of football, the Ross boys started well and only for some good saves by the Drimoleague goalkeeper they could have found themselves ahead by the break. A stronger Drimoleague outfit eventually broke the Rangers resistance and led at half time by three points. The second half was evenly balanced with both teams going at it from the start and with scores hard to come by, the difference in the end was Drimoleague's two goals. The final score was Drimoleague 2-7 to Carbery Rangers 0-8.
Panel: Darragh Twomey, Eamonn Hodnett, Col Cuinnea, Ryan Hayes, Paul Murphy, Cormac Cuinnea, Conor Twomey, Colm Hayes, Annraoi Creedon, Bosco de Pardo, Andrew Kevane, Ronan, Hayes, Ben Linehan, Ciaran McCarthy, Robbie Wilson, Evan Fitz, Olan Murphy, Alan Luuk, Fionn Lawlor, Cian Barry.
Overall though no trophies were won the young lads can be very proud of their season with some great displays and never say die attitude, well done to all involved.
