Our U10’s begin their summer blitz at home on July 4th. We are in group two with Fethard A and B and Clonmel Og .There are six groups altogether and each group will be assigned a co-ordinator to ensure that games are being played and that the format of the programme is being adhered to by all clubs. Each team will host a mini blitz as its hoped that this will maximise the playing time and involvement of all the players.
All teams will then be invited to take part in a County under 10 blitz to be held in Dr. Morris Park, Thurles on September 22nd.
Taken in Semple on Bank Holiday Monday.
Clerihan Junior Hurlers created a little bit of history in damp and wet Goatenbridge last Wednesday night. By beating Ballylooby/Castlegrace in the South Junior Hurling Championship the club recorded their first win at this grade in almost 50 years. Clerihan began the game brightly with early scores from Andrew Ryan and Stephen O Dwyer settling the team down. The game entered a scrappy period after the early exchanges with both teams struggling with the very difficult underfoot conditions. Clerihan re-exerted their control before half time and a fine goal by wing forward Andrew Ryan left Clerihan 1-8 to 0-3 in front at half time.
Ballylooby began the second half in determined fashion and slowly began to reduce the deficit. Clerihan steadied with John Hurley, Stephen Ryan and Andrew Ryan re-gaining control around the middle of the field began to pull away. A fine Bernard O Shea goal mid way through the second half put Clerihan in an unassailable position and a further goal late on by Andrew Ryan and a couple of superb points by both Leo Curtan and Benny Sullivan put the icing on the cake of a fine team performance. Final Score Clerihan 3-13 Ballylooby/Castlegrace 0-8. Team: Eoin Barrett Tomas Barrett Shane Suullivan Eamon Barret(capt) Eoin O Dwyer Jason O’Dwyer Stephen Ryan Dan Walsh John Hurley Brian Keane Leo Curtan Andrew Ryan Stephen O’Dwyer Bernard O’Shea Adrian Lawrence Subs: Micheal O’Rourke Keith Flannery Benny Sullivan Paul Mc Grath. Well done to Kieran Colm & Tommy.

South U12B Football Final Replay
Clerihan met Kilsheelan in the long awaited replay of the U12 South Football championship Final. After a cracker of a game in Clogheen a few weeks ago when the sides could not be separated after extra time, expectations were high that there would be a similar game this time out. However the day belonged to the Kilsheelan lads who finished the game strongest and ran out four point winners. All credit to the Clerihan lads who matched their opponents throughout the game. The lead changed hands on a number of occasions and Clerihan were in the game up to the final whistle. Congratulations to Kilsheelan on winning and those connected to the team. Well done to Clerihan and thanks for entertaining those who followed them with a great brand of football. Well done and thanks to all connected to the team. Thanks to everyone associated with the team.
Everyone in Clerihan GAA Club is proud of your achievement. Roll on the hurling championship.

Clerihan Ladies Football
Clerihan under 12 girls played Clonmel Commercials last Thursday evening in a home game which saw Commercials give a spirited performance in the first half and were two points up at the half time whistle. The second half was a different ball game altogether after scoring an opening goal Commercials were to see their lead drift away from them when Clerihan upped their game with a fantastic performance in midfield from Kate Corcoran and Emma Hennessy and full backs Lisa Walsh, Mia Cooney, and Fiona McGrath who were impenetrable and a super performance from Orla O”Donnell in goal. Centre backs Catriona Rice scored one goal and two points and gave an outstanding performance, Mairead Browne and Romy Mc Carthy were superb. The forwards line out as follows Hannah Phelan scored one goal , Chloe Lawerence, Chelsea O Mahony, Ashling Morrissey, Ashling Gillman and Danielle Foley and super subs Kayleigh Flannery who scored two points and Caoimhe Mulcahy who scored a goal and Megan O Donnell. Clerihan put in an outstanding effort to come back in the second half to win the game and well done to the Commercials girls for an excellent game. Well done to Edmund and John who prepared the girls for the game.
