Its back to SFL action this weekend with the next game at home to Latton on Saturday 7th October at 5pm. This will leave two remaining league games at home to Magheracloone and away to Ballybay.

Minor Final
The minors had a difficult outing on Sunday in the Div Three championship final in Scotstown when a very focused and well drilled Doohamlet side had a facile victory. Doohamlet got off to a dream start setting a blistering pace from the throw in but our lads made a good comeback with fine individual goals from Conor Doyle and Jack Gormley. That momentum was not maintained in the second half however and despite their best effort the game was over as a contest long before the final whistle. Well done to Doohamlet who raised their game when it counted. Well done also to our players and mentors Kieran Brennan, Stephen McGuigan and Rodney Gorman for their work during the year.

Juvenile
U12

In the Division 6 final against Truagh on Saturday the boys were unfortunate to go down narrowly following a hard fought contest. Well done to the players and their mentors Padraig McGuigan, Niall Brennan and Kieran Greenan for their efforts during the season as the group has many fine players who will no doubt bring honours to the club in years to come.

Sympathy is extended to the Carey family on the death of their father and grandfather Seamus. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam

Credit Unions SFL Clontibret 2-13 Killanny 0-7
Another successful outing in the SFL on Saturday, on a first visit to Killanny where a Conor McManus goal just before half time effectively ended the contest. No SFL action this weekend with the next game scheduled at home v Latton on Saturday 7th October.

Minor Final
The minors take centre stage this weekend with the Div Three championship final in Scotstown at 2pm as a curtain raiser to the Junior Championship final on Sunday. Best wishes to the boys and their mentors Kieran Brennan, Stephen McGuigan and Rodney Gorman as they take on fellow parishioners, Doohamlet.

Juvenile
U16 Championship Final Clontibret 4-4 Killanny 6-13

The Under 16 team suffered disappointment at the hands of a very strong Killanny outfit in the Division Three championship final in Blackhill on Saturday. Despite being outplayed for much of the match the boys showed great character in battling to the end with three final quarter goals as a reward for their efforts. Well done to Killanny who had many fine players on view but it is interesting to note that the programme listed them as having as many subs as players in a thirteen aside competition.

U12
In the Division 6 final we play Truagh on Saturday 30th September in Clones at 11am. Please come along to support the boys in the final game of the year.

Following on from the disappointment of the championship it was good to get back to winning ways on Sunday last at Rooskey where a rejiged and sharper team proved too much for the Harps. This weekend it’s a visit to Donaghmoyne on Saturday for a 5.30pm throw in.

Senior Camogie Championship Final 2017

Senior Camogie championship final
Clontibret 2-11
Castleblayney 1-4

No written tribute to former camogie President Mary Lynch (Carrickmacross) in this year’s final match programme, could have honoured her as much the enthralling contest that unfolded in Inniskeen on Sunday last, when holders Castleblayney took on arch rivals Clontibret. As a player and coach Mary advocated a ‘no holds barred’ approach to the game and this contest would certainly have satisfied her, as it did the many supporters who turned up to watch the game.
Castleblayney set out their stall inside 3 minutes with a well-taken point by Niamh Brennan. However, Clontibret’s Marie Greenan negated this and then went on to put her side ahead in the 11th minute with 2 points – one from dead ball, the other from play. Clontibret though looked to be in real trouble when, 5 minutes later, Brennan struck low and into the corner of the net giving her team a 2-point lead. To their credit Clontibret remained composed and even at this stage looked the more threatening side – though they were also guilty of wasting opportunities up front. Their composure however was rewarded when Chloe McGuigan scored a lovely point from play and Marie Greenan added another point which, in the 24th minute, brought parity to proceedings. For the remainder of the first half play swung from end-to-end and both goalkeepers Aideen Green (Clontibret) and Roisín McKenna (Castleblayney) executed some terrific saves to the delight and relief of all concerned.

Half time score:
Clontibret 0-4
Castleblayney 1-1

From the resumption of play, the intensity of the exchanges between both teams escalated. Amber Lam opened the scoring for Castleblayney but Marie Greenan restored equality with a well-taken free. Niamh Brennan got the slimmest of opportunities from her marker and added a sweet point from play to push Castleblayney ahead again. However, their lead was short-lived as almost immediately Jennifer Duffy, possibly the youngest exponent of the game on the day, added to Clontibret’s tally, leaving the sides level again. With the game now entering the final quarter it was make or break time and both sets of management reshuffled their packs with the hope of breaking the stalemate for once and for all. Clontibret’s Marie Greenan within 20m of a net, is the stuff the can cause goalkeepers to have restless nights! Her redeployment on the edge of the square produced instant results – following a well worked passage of play from the Clontibret defence, Michelle Morgan laid off a low ball to Greenan. There was only ever going to be one outcome. Buoyed by this score Clontibret found a new impetus and brought the game to an even higher level. Young Duffy, now prowling shamelessly with the ‘big guns’ at mid-field, added another point and almost before the referee (Mairtín McGann, Armagh) had time to restart the play properly, Greenan, with deadly accuracy, rifled the net again. Castleblayney to their credit, refused to roll over, but attempts by Amber Lam to drive 2 frees low and hard, were severely rebuffed by a Clontibret defence who were now on fire. From the clearance Muireann Atkinson gained possession and sent the ball homeward to add another point to Clontibret’s tally. Castleblayney challenged relentlessly but with Clontibret’s Nicola Morgan, Aisling McElvaney and Hannah McSkeane in exceptional form, the battle for Castleblayney was uphill. Upfront Michelle Morgan showed star quality, and pace, time and time again, and late in the game was even joined by daughter Sioneen in a rare mother-daughter duo. Niamh Brennan continued to ply Castleblayney’s cause by adding her 3rd point from play. She was well supported by Orlagh Maguire and Sheena McKenna, but it was a day when Castleblayney must surely have wondered where their leaders were as Clontibret romped to the finish line aided 2 further points from Muireann Atkinson and Marie Greenan.

Final Score:
Clontibret 2-11
Castleblayney 1-4

Clontibret: Aideen Green, Joanne McSkane, Niamh Kieran, Donna Moen, Nicola Morgan, Sorcha McDonald, Ríoghnach Duffy, Aisling McElvaney, Hannah McSkeane, Éimear McKenna, Marie Greenan, Chloe McGuigan, Michelle Morgan, Aisling Greenan (Capt), Jennifer Duffy, Sioneen Morgan, Sinéad Mohan, Muireann Atkinson, Orlaith Boyle, Ailbhe Boyle.
