Clerihan Gaa Notes

Well done to the under 10s and 8s girls football teams who recently played a Munster blitz in Rathkeale, Co. Limerick. There were some great individual performances from the girls on both teams. The girls played teams from Cork, Kerry and Limerick and had some great wins. Thanks to all the coaches and parents who travelled on the day. The future is looking bright for Clerihan Ladies football Club.

Our under 8 boys enjoyed a great day of football at Fethard on Saturday where our skill was tested against Commercials, St. Pats and hosts Fethard who organised a great afternoon for the boys where the Danagher Cup was up for grabs and all the boys were presented with winners medals, a big thanks to Fethard for the organising the day.

 

Our under 12 hurler’s had a super win on Sunday against Mullinahone to become South County winners and the boys displayed a tremendous amount of skill, the first half was very demanding as the heavens opened but Clerihan held their composure, with the wind at their backs they managed to score 4 points to Mullinahone’s 3 and started the second half playing into the wind but they kept the pressure on their opponents with 3 successive wides and eventually  hitting the jackpot with a fantastic goal from Shane Buckley , Mullinahone tried to pick up the pace of the game but the brilliant Clerihan backs prevented them from scoring that badly needed goal, 2 points put Mullinahone back in the game and a free to Clerihan put them 3 points ahead with minutes to go , the final whistle was music to their ears as Clerihan become South County winners for the second time ,well done to all the boys involved and Jerry, John and Liam who put in all the hard work to achieve success. Final score Clerihan 1-5 to Mullinahone 0-5.
