Club Notes – 25 October 2018

Shoe City SFL
The last game of the league is with Blayney and will be played on Friday night 26th October under lights in Blayney at 8pm.


The team have qualified for the league semi-final on Sunday the 4th of November against either St. Tiarnach’s or Tyholland at home at 11am.

Cumann na mBunscoil
Well done to the boys of Scoil Mhuire who defeated Loughmourne in their School’s Finals last Saturday. After a titanic battle where the game ebbed and flowed, the boys put in a tremendous last ten minutes to secure victory. Well done to Danica and the players.

New Pitch and Track
Work has been progressing favourably on our new development over the past few weeks. The new full size Prunty Pitch has now been laid, the seeds have been sown and a nice green sward has appeared, which was the subject of much favourable comment from patrons at the Intermediate final on Sunday. The 1km walking track, which will be fully lit, is currently being laid around the outer perimeter of both the new pitch and the existing pitch and should be ready by the end of the month. This of course means that we now move on to the next phase which is the erection of perimeter fencing, balls stops, goal posts and dug outs. To help fund this we will be looking for another year’s contribution from our Clontibret Our Future members and your promoter will be calling with you soon in the coming weeks. Try to be as generous again this year as you have been in the past as much great work has been done and we now want to see it completed.

Intermediate and Minor Finals
It was a busy day at O’Neill Park on Sunday with the MFC and IFC finals bringing the largest crowd of the year. Well done and many thanks to all who contributed to preparing the grounds in the days leading up to the match, especially the volunteers on Saturday, and to the many helpers and stewards who organised and managed the big crowd on the day. This involved getting people in, parked and out efficiently and safely, selling programmes, managing the shop and tea/coffee outlets, providing refreshments for stewards and officials, managing the score board, public address and overall crowd management. A lot of different jobs, but somebody must do them and that’s where volunteerism comes in. A special mention for Eleanor Carville Sullivan whose stunning rendition of Amhran na bhFiann was much appreciated by the large attendance.

Scór na bPáistí
