Club Notes – 16 August 2018

Shoe City Senior League
It’s back to the domestic scene this weekend with the resumption of the Senior League and we have Magheracloone as visitors on Sunday at 1pm.

Platinum Tanks Reserves Clontibret 1-10 Scotstown 2-16
Despite a good first half which saw us go in against the wind just three down at half time we failed to put our stamp on the game in the second half as Scotstown dominated the exchanges. This brings down the curtain on reserve football for the year and just to say, well done, to the players, who put in the effort, along with Padraig and JP who guided them along the way.

The Shield Final will now take place on Friday night 17th August at 7pm in Cremartin. Please show your support for these young players in their final game of the season.

All Ireland Semi Final
While disappointment was our lot in Croke Park on Sunday we must be mindful of the wonderful effort put in by the whole team and management during the whole season and the many great days they gave us up and down the country from Omagh to Dungarvan and from Croke Park to Galway since last January. It was a glorious odyssey, with our four representatives, Vinny Corey, Dessie Mone, Conor McManus and Conor Boyle, more often than not the mainstay of the team and we are rightly very proud of them. Well done boys you are a credit to your families, your club and your county. With that phase of the year now over, it’s now back to domestic stuff with senior league against Magheracloone this Sunday and the senior championship due to begin next weekend, when we face Latton. Or as Kavanagh put it; “A local row. God’s make their own importance”.

Gaelic Sunday 1918
Not many in the more than 17,000 attendance in Clones last Sunday might realise that a century ago attendance at or participation in such an event could land you in trouble with the police. In the aftermath of the 1916 Rising and in an attempt to quell opposition to the extension of conscription to the British army to Ireland the British authorities issued a proclamation requiring permits to be obtained for the holding of Gaelic games.

The GAA decided to designate August 4th as GAA Sunday when all clubs would participate in matches in opposition to this new law and Clontibret O’Neills staged a challenge match between their Senior and Junior teams. This was most likely played in McNally’s Meadow in Moys where Clontibret had won their first Toal Cup in January 1917 wearing their green and white hooped jerseys and while we have no record of the participants it would likely have included many of that team such as Patrick Hughes, Tom Connor, John McAdam, Patrick McArdle, Owen Leonard, Francis Carragher, Peter Woods, John McKearney, Richard Brennan, Harry Macklin, Sonny Sherry, Edward Smyth, Mickey ‘Fly’ Hughes, Eddie Duffy, John Loughran, Pat Hughes, Owen Leonard, Packie Forde, James Henry Fitzimmons, John McKenna, Robert Winters, Frank Leonard, Charles McAlevy. It is good to remember those who made the path that we now follow.
