Clonmel Og summer camp concluded in blazing sunshine on Friday night and what a brilliant week it was.
We would like to thank all of the children who attended and all of our coaches, photographers, helpers, chefs, and sponsors. Everybody went home happy and we’re already looking forward to 2014. There are hundreds of photos up on the Facebook page so get tagging. Johnny Downey has a limited supply of surplus kits available for purchase by those who could not attend the camp so contact your coach if interested.
Kudos to the Junior hurlers who won their third and final group game in the South Championship on Friday night against Ballylooby in Goatenbridge. It was tight enough in the first half and the teams went to the break at six points a piece. Ballylooby went ahead briefly at the start of the second half but our boys began to turn the screw and in a purple patch crowned with a Colin O’Mahony goal, saw out the game on a score of 1.16 to 0.10.
A good performance and much improved on our last outing. We have finished second in our group and will now face one of Swan, Fethard, Newcastle, or Skeheen in the quarter final. There is another round of games in the other side and it is currently wide open. Well done all involved! Team: Dean Horton, Aaron Arrigan, Graham Quinn, Aidan Fox, Eric Smith, Darragh Kearney, Marc Ahearne, Karl Kearney, Shane Kearney, Matthew Norris, Eoin Fallon, Dwaine Burns, Colin O’ Mahony, Dean Kelleher, Paul Deady, Cian Hogan, Conor Arrigan
Our 14B hurlers lost to Fethard in their opening South Championship game on Thursday. Despite having only one player up to the age, our fellows acquitted themselves very well and can look forward to the rest of the championship
Well done to our U10 & U14 girls who enjoyed a great day on Saturday in a blitz out in Monroe. These girls are improving on a week by week basis and the results are starting to reflect their hard work. Well done to the players and coaches for their commitment.
Our U12 hurlers make a welcome return to the A grade in their championship opener against Cahir on Tuesday 9th. These boys were playing Division 3 in 2012 so this is a huge step up, and due recognition of their ability and potential.
At the time of writing we have no senior football fixture although the speculation is we may be out against Commercials on Friday night. Training continues and keep an eye on the Facebook page for fixture updates
