With Conor B straining to get back in from injury we wish them well in the semi final with Fermanagh..

U7
Blitz this Saturday. Details to be confirmed by Martin.

U6
Training will continue this week in the Community Centre on Friday evening the 20th from 6-7pm.

Pitches Closed
As pitches recover slowly and the prospect of better weather looms we can hopefully look forward to a gradual return to normal service soon. Again many thanks to all who cooperated fully during the closure for what was unprecedented conditions.

New Pitch and Track Development
It is hoped that Prunty Pitches will begin work next month on laying our new pitch and that will be followed by the laying of the walking track. This work would not be proceeding were it not for the vital funds raised through our Clontibret our Future Development Fund and anyone who has yet to contribute for Year 3 (2017/18) should do so immediately. The difficulties experienced with pitches over the past few weeks reinforces the need for this development as the pressure on pitches from football, hurling, camogie and ladies football across all grades is taking its toll on our existing facilities

Hurling
The senior hurlers lost their opening SHL game with Inniskeen on Thursday last in Cloghan and this week have an away game in Carrick . On Thursday 26th April the DHL kicks off with a trip to Monaghan Harps.

Club Notes – 12 April 2018

We play Scotstown away on Saturday at 4pm (please note change of time), followed by a visit from Truagh on Wednesday April 18th at 7.30pm.

Senior League
Clontibret 2-12, Monaghan Harps 0-10. A good all round performance reinforced by early goals from Conor McManus and MP O’Dowd gained us the points in Gavan Duffy Park on Sunday. No senior action this weekend but Sunday week we have Latton as visitors to O’Neill Park.

Minor League
The minors, short a few players, lost in Doohamlet last week by 5 points. Next up is at home to an Eire Og combination on 24th April.

Pitches Closed
Due to the poor weather conditions during the week we were forced to close all our pitches for both games and training. This obviously caused inconvenience to all but many thanks to those who honoured the directive to the full and stayed off the pitches. Recovery will not be immediate but with the cooperation of all our units we will work our way through it without causing further pitch damage. We are also grateful to a number of clubs including Emyvale and Magheracloone who agreed to reverse fixtures to facilitate us.

Hurling
The first game in the SHL was postponed last week due to the unavailability of a playable pitch. This week’s game with Inniskeen will be played on Thursday with an away game in Carrick the following week

Camogie Notes – 12 April 2018

Club registration took place recently and there was a very good attendance. The parents were addressed by Paula Greenan (Joint Child Safeguarding Officer) who reminded parents, managers and players of the importance of respect; the importance of being observant and mindful of others; of Garda vetting procedures and Child Safeguarding training.

Unfortunately, due to the appalling weather conditions recently the playing pitches are closed until the end of this week. This meant postponement of all our first-round camogie fixtures – Senior, U-16 and U-14. The Armagh Board will re-fix these and notify us.

Here’s hoping the weather does improve dramatically as Croke Park have schedule the Go for Glory Minor match between Wicklow and Donegal, for Clontibret, this Sunday at 2.00pm. This will be a match well worth seeing. It would be a nice gesture perhaps to provide tea and sandwiches for both teams after the match, so if anyone was available to help they can contact the PRO!

An important development meeting will take place in the Glencarn Hotel on Thursday evening at 7.00, facilitated by Paul O Donovan (Croke Park) and Niall Jackman (Ulster) to further explore development initiatives for camogie in the county from underage to senior. Last months meeting was very productive – thank you to the strong cohort of Clontibret representatives who attended – and hopefully we will get the same people and others to attend on Thursday.

One of the initiatives discussed at the last meeting was a Foundation Level coaching course for parents and senior (over-18) players, which would enable them coach the U-10s or U-8s – the most important members of our club. This Course would also incorporate a Child Safeguarding course on the Friday night. Traditionally these courses cost in the region of €40 pp and clubs subsidise their attendees. However, Ulster Executive, as a goodwill gesture to Monaghan, are going to fund the course entirely! It is hoped to hold it towards the end of April /beginning of May and I would urge as many as possible to avail of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Anyone interested can contact our Cathaoirleach, Mary.

The Camogie Association’s National Congress took place last weekend in Kilkenny and for us Clontibret folk, the highlight was the elevation of Kathleen Woods, Derrynoose Club, to the position of President. What an honour for her club, county and province! We wish Kathleen well in her 3-year term of office.

For anyone who may not be aware, beautiful, little Baby Megan Magennis arrived into the world on Tuesday morning last. Congratulations Denise and Shane.

And if I may be so bold as to give a ‘personal plug’ for a very worthwhile event coming up shortly: Seamus McMahon once again is hosting what promises to be another terrific, Gala Concert and CD launch on Monday April 23 in the Four Seasons Hotel at 8.30. Among the performers will be Marty Mone, Mick Flavin, The Forever Young Band, Brendan McCaughey, Patsy O Hagan, Seamus McElwaine and Donal McCague etc etc. Seamus’ last concert, in 2015, raised over €22,000 all of which went towards purchasing a gene sequencing machine for Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda – a vital piece of equipment for the early detection of cancers or genetic disposition to certain cancers. This time round Crocus and The Cancer Bus are the main beneficiaries. So, there is no doubting the worthiness of the cause. Tickets are €15 each and are available from ‘family members’(!) or Braeside Stores.

Finally, deepest sympathy is extended to Eilish, Damien, Conor and the extended Evans family, on the death of Patsy last week. One of life’s true gentlemen – may he rest in peace.

Camogie Club AGM 2018

Donna Moen and Shauna Finnegan were congratulated on their marriages, Joanne and Aisling were congratulated on their engagements and Shauna McElvaney – McKenna, and her husband Enda, were congratulated on the birth of beautiful little Aoibheann Rose.
