GAA news

Clondrohid under-16 team played their near neighbour and great rivals Aghinagh in the semi-final of the championship in Cill na Martra Tuesday evening. Weather conditions were poor but both teams played some great passages of football.

Clondrohid were slow to get up to the tempo of the game as Aghinagh made a bright start and led by one - 02 to two points after 20 minutes but then our boys started to get more into the game scoring some nice points and at half time the score was Clondrohid five points Aghinagh 1-03. After some tough words were spoken at half time Clondrohid started to play with more purpose and aggression and kicked some great points and with some great defending led by two points with a few minutes left in the game.

Aghinagh threw everything into attack, in search of a winning goal but our boys stood up to all the Aghinagh attacks and as the final whistle blew Clondrohid had won on a scoreline of 13 points to 2-05. We are now looking forward to the final against Ahane Gaels venue and date to be confirmed. The players should be very proud of the effort they put in to this game as Aghinagh battled to the final whistle. Thanks to the parents for bringing the boys to the matches and to training and to our supporters and now we start to prepare for the final.

CLONDROHID UNDER-12S played Oliver Plunkett's in a most absorbing game of football in Clondrohid. What a game of football both teams put on for the supporters. Clondrohid started the stronger and scored a point followed by a pair of goals. Plunkett's started to come more into the game as the half went on and Clondrohid depended on some strong defending and good goalkeeping to protect their lead at half time. Clondrohid two goals four points to Plunkett's three points.

The second half was more of the same with our lads pushing hard and scored another goal and two points, but then Plunkett's moved around some of their players which started to pay dividends and they started to pick up the scores to the tune of only being a goal behind in the final couple of minutes. Clondrohid four goals six points to Plunkett's three goals six points, but again the boys showed a massive amount of belief and heart to go straight down the field and rattle the back of the net with the final play of the game to win this cracking game of football five goals six points to Oliver Plunkett's three goals six points.

A massive thanks to all the parents who as always showed great support to our boys. Also, a big thanks to all who brought treats for both teams and served tea and coffee for all parents. Final thanks to Oliver Plunkett's for a great game of football.

Cups visit the schools of the parish

Great excitement at the three local schools last Thursday, September 19, as the all-Ireland and munster under-20 Cup as well as the all-Ireland minor cup were on show.
