Clonmel Og’s new dressing room building was officially dedicated to the late great Jim Cleary at the weekend.
A plaque was unveiled by County Board Chairman Sean Nugent followed by a senior football challenge between Clonmel Og and Rathgormack (Waterford) for the inaugural Jim Cleary Cup.
Thankfully the Ogs emerged victorious on this occasion! Well done to the organising committee for arranging such a fantastic occasion.
Clonmel Og U12A hurlers recorded a great victory over Moyle Rovers on Monday 5 in the South End Games Semi Final out in Monroe.
We led 5 points to 2 at half time and edged our opponents out by a point at the final whistle. Score 1.8 to 2.4. We face Ballingarry in the final.
The U12s also had a great day of hurling in Semple Stadium Thurles against very good opposition. We had games against Passage (Waterford), Abbeydorney (Kerry) and Newcastlewest (Limerick)
Team on the day: Jack Houlihan, Jack Dillon, Paul Hughes, Rhys O Regan, Cathal McGuigan, Jack Moore, Jamie Doyle, Thomas Hickey, Seanie Fitzpatrick, Conor Anderson, Luke Cashman, Gordon Rossiter Adam Lonergan, Dean Pyke, Ben Smith, Eamonn Healy.
The U14 hurlers played out a high scoring draw against Ballylooby on Thursday 8. We had what should have been a match winning lead built up, but the Bally boys came back strong and it took a last minute goal for the Ogs to snatch the draw. We are away to St. Pats on Thursday 15th.
The U12 girls play Clerihan in Ned Hall Park on Thursday at 19.00, best of luck to all.
Defeat for our junior hurlers in the South Quarter Final vs. Skeheen in Goatenbridge. Skeheen started very brightly and soon raced into a 1.5 to 0.1 lead. However we got up to the pace of the game and played reasonably well thereafter. We drew level by the half time whistle and the sides went in 0.8 to 1.5. The second half was a different affair with little scoring in the opening 18 mins and a lot of wides for both sides. However, Skeheen were starting to work a bit of space for themselves and scored the vital goal with about 12 minutes to go. They followed this up with a brace of points to go six up. We pointed twice in the last few minutes but Skeheen scored the last point of the game to record a five point victory. Final score 0.14 to 2.13. Injuries to key players hampered our efforts but well done to all involved
TNumbers drawn on Monday 5th Lotto draw: 01,05,15,24. There was no jackpot winner but well done to John Bowe (seller Sidney Gregory) who matched 3 and scooped €200 for his trouble! Huge thanks to all our draw supporters.
