Our nominee this year was Kieran Lavelle a former club secretary, club treasurer and current club safety officer as well as being a very hands-on member of the Development committee. Kieran has given and continues to give great service to the club in so many different aspects and is a very worthy recipient of the honour bestowed on him.

Club Notes – 13 December 2018

New Walking Track
The walking track is almost ready for use with the juvenile players and their parents getting a sneak preview on Monday night last. Over 100 children and adults got the first run around it and it was a great sight to see the lights lit and people buzzing in all directions. It will be open to the public from 3pm on Sunday and hopefully will be a great asset to our club and community. Great thanks is due to the many people who worked hard to bring it to fruition from planning, to grants, to fundraising and the diligent work of local contractors, Noel and Benny Craven along with the many volunteers who helped along the way. We would like to acknowledge the assistance of Monaghan Local Action Group (LAG), Monaghan Integrated Development, Monaghan County Council, the Minister and Department of Rural and Community Development and The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe investing in rural areas, with funding for this project.

So if you want to see the finished product and where your money has gone come along on Sunday from 3pm or any day thereafter from 6am to 10.30pm. In accordance with GAA policy dogs are not permitted on the grounds or walkway. Walkway users should use the designated walkway gate to enter and exit. This is the new entrance close to the emergency gates to the main pitch (close to the shop).

Upcoming Events
A few dated for your calendar over Christmas. On Friday 28th December we have the now annual Clontibret Gold Rush, a 3km and 5km walk/ run at 2pm with registration from 1pm. This year’s route will incorporate the new track, so if you want to get the turkey and trifle run off this is your chance.

On Sunday December 30th we have two presentation events. First up at 6pm in the Community Centre is the Juvenile Presentation evening followed later on at the clubrooms by the senior presentation for Player of the Year awards and presentation of medals to the championship winning Under 17 team.

Club Notes – 6 December 2018

New Pitch and Track
With the mild weather the grass on the new Prunty pitch continues to grow. The walkway is nearing completion but will not be available for use until it is fully commissioned. 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 are currently looking for another year’s contribution from our Clontibret Our Future members and if your promoter hasn’t already called with you they will be doing so soon. 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. Promoters are asked to make contact with all their clients before the week is out as a big push is needed to finish up well before Christmas

Commiserations to the boys who narrowly lost out on completing the Under 17 double with a two point defeat to Truagh in Emyvale on Sunday, a team they had easily accounted for in the championship final. Well done however on a great year along with their management team of Kieran Brennan, Conor Fadian and Kevin Dunlop

Triple All Star
Congratulations to Conor McManus on being presented with his third GAA/GPA All Star award at the Convention Centre in Dublin on Friday night, a great personal honour, not only for Conor and his family but also for our club and our county. How much it means to club members was amply demonstrated by the huge turnout on Sunday evening last to welcome Conor back to the club with his award, with dozens of children swarming around him. Speaking on behalf of the club executive Kieran Lavelle gave a whole hearted welcome to Conor and reminded him that the huge turnout was a testament to his standing among club members and the community at large while his former teacher and coach Sean Mulligan spoke of Conor’s early interest in and proficiency at the game. There followed an enjoyable evening of autographs, photographs and reminiscences.

Juveniles
Our U17s beat Tyholland on Sunday in league semi-final. We play Truagh in the league final this Sunday 11th at 11.30am. No venue yet. Please keep an eye out on the venue and come out to give the boys your support in the final game of the season.
It was great to see the many parents and juveniles who turned out to welcome Mansy with his All-Star award to the club on Sunday evening. There was a great buzz around and there were certainly some future All-Stars in attendance.

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 the nice green is getting better looking every day. 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 soon. 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.

A comprehensive win in Blayney on Friday night last brought down the curtain on the 2018 season in some style.
