Sparks flew in Clerihan on Friday evening when our under 16’s took on Cahir in a battle to the very end. Both teams put in an excellent performance, with Clerihan only able to muster the bare panel of fifteen so there was no room for error. Blood, sweat and tears were shed and in the end it was to be Cahir’s night with the final score 12 points to 10. Well done again to the Clerihan lads and keep up the good work . The first game of the championship is Monday 9th against Mullinahone .

Our under 10 girls begin their summer blitz at home on July 4. 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 22.

Our under 12 girls lost out in the D Plate semi final to Galtee Rovers last Wednesday night. Clerihan were missing some key players due to injury and this impacted on the game but well done to all the girls involved.
