The U11s had a very busy weekend. On Saturday the boys competed very well in the Mick Farrell competition in Monaghan Harps reaching the final. On Monday evening the  two U11 teams are played Killiveen in the Liam Stirrat Summer League Finals. A great occasion and where all players displayed their skills for the large support in attendance.

U13

They were mixed fortunes for our U13 teams in their respective championship semi-finals played last weekend. The Div 2 U13 team had a great victory over Monaghan Harps in Emyvale. Unfortunately our Div 6 team came up short after showing great courage and a battling display against Carrickmacross on Sunday morning. Well done to this group of players who have improved immensely throughout the year. All roads now lead to Monaghan Harps this Saturday at 11am where our U13’s play Scotstown in the Division 1 final. Please come out and support the boys.

Senior Camogie

Congratulations to the local senior team who caused quite an upset on Sunday last when they comprehensively defeated Castleblayney on a score-line of 4-13 to 2-6. In so doing, not only did they collect their 15th title but also made it another 3-in-a-row.

This was a remarkable achievement considering they had faced a lot of adversity all year as a result of a very whittled down panel following last year’s heady success. However, what Clontibret may have lacked in numbers, they certainly compensated for in terms of hunger, determination, fitness and skill and out-classed a very fancied Castleblayney side in every area of the pitch. The likes of young Ellanna Fitzpatrick, Katie Carragher, Ria McCann, Chloe Markey, Emma Treanor and Emer McGlone really surpassed themselves and showed enormous character on the ‘big occasion’.

Panel: Ellanna Fitzpatrick, Katie Carragher, Chloe Markey, Niamh Kieran, Orlaith Boyle (Capt), Rίoghnach Duffy, Michelle Morgan, Emma Treanor, Aisling McElvaney, Ria McCann, Chloe McGuigan, Marie Greenan (Player of the Match), Emer McGlone, Jennifer Duffy, Nicola Morgan, Sorcha McDonald and Mary Duffy.  

On Saturday morning nine of the senior panel head to Kilmacud Crokes to participate in their famous ‘7’s tournament’, for the first time ever. We wish them well. Absent from this group will be Ellanna Fitzpatrick who will join her friends from the Ulster Elite Camp, in DCU, for the U-16 inter-provincials. Best wishes Ellanna!  

Then on Sunday a group of 30 players, parents and coaches will head to Croke Park for the All-Ireland Camogie finals. These promise to be thrilling clashes, especially Kilkenny and Galway in the senior final.

Finally, congratulations to O Neill Shamrocks who made it a historic double when they won the Intermediate Championship on Friday evening

Greenfield Senior Football Championship

We proceeded to the next round of the SFC following a tense finish in Blayney on Saturday night last, which resulted in the first ever senior championship game being decided on penalties. In the next round to be played on the weekend of 15th September we will face one of the other first round winners which will be Scotstown, Truagh or Ballybay/Inniskeen who play this weekend. There was a big turnout at O’Neill Park on Sunday evening for the championship double header and well done to all who had the grounds in such fine fettle for the occasion and to all who helped out on the day. There is another SFC double header on Saturday when Ballybay meet Inniskeen at 4pm followed by the clash of Doohamlet and Castleblayney at 5.30pm. Usual help required to steward this event from 2.30pm.
