Our sympathy is extended to Michelle Fusciardi-Wallace and family on the death of Michelle’s uncle.

Unfortunately, we didn’t have any winners in the third and final Model County Development Draw, but we appreciate the support of all those who purchased a ticket from the club.


The Under 14 footballers play away against Taghmon on Thursday, July 7, at 7.30 p.m.  


Our adult hurlers play the Rapparees in the ACL on Friday evening in Bellefield. They also play Blackwater in the championship in Blackwater on Sunday evening.

Last Tuesday we played Rathgerogue-Cushinstown in the Under-12 championship in Ballinaboola, but we didn’t get the points.  It was kind of a gentlemanly game, with sportsmanship from both teams.

Kian was a rock at full-back, while the two Darraghs, Leon and Killian hurled like giants of the game. Ryan covered every blade of grass on the pitch, and was exhausted after the game.

Little bother Barry, in goal, stopped piledrivers from the opposition, while Rory and Jody were brilliant. The selectors will have to convene a meeting to decide the captain of the next match, as they were all candidates.

Our next match is on Tuesday, July 5, at 7.30 p.m., football with Our Lady’s Island/St. Fintan’s, with Ballymore as the venue. Our best wishes to Nicky and Danial who have been ill last week.

Clonard Under-10s had 15 players for their home game versus Kilmore. The blues played two games, a ten-a-side and a five-a-side, with both going very well. Players were rotated between the games and in their positions with the aim of ensuring each player had to opportunity to develop and demonstrate their skills.

The Clonard players provided their usual commitment with a block by Darragh and a catch by Luke examples of their efforts. Special mention to Logan who was making his Under-10 hurling debut. A sincere thanks to all the Under-10 players and parents for their efforts and support at the game.

The team has really started to develop. Hurling and/or football training is on Tuesday from 6.30-7.40 p.m. We need all players at training to keep progressing in developing the skills of the games.

Our next game is hurling away to Glynn-Barntown on Sunday morning, July 10. The blues will play a football game versus Rosslare on Friday, July 15.

Dear parents/guardians, Clonard G.A.A. summer camp is filling up fast, with 89 places booked so far. We have the last fitting of tops between 6 and 7.30 p.m. pm Sunday in the pitch (I will be down on the pitch beside my car).

The camp is just €35 and will run from August 2 to 5 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. Everyone will receive a Clonard G.A.A. half zip, shorts and socks. A small deposit of €15 is needed to book a place, and the balance can be paid off over the next few weeks.

Any questions, please contact me (Mary) on 087-9967925. To guarantee kits in time for the camp, the order is going in Monday morning. The kit order takes four weeks.

Congratulations to Karen Malone on winning €250 in last week's Split the Pot. The seller was Keith Casey, Culleton’s Bar, Whitemill.

A big thank you to all who supported us last week, and thank you to all our sellers. Next week’s envelopes are on sale now, and your continued support would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.


The lotto jackpot of €3,200 wasn’t won last week. The winning numbers were 16, 21, 28 and 31, and there were no match threes. Our next lotto draw will be on July 12, when the jackpot will be €3,500.

Our Intermediate hurling team play in the final of the Kinsella Cup this Tuesday versus Horeswood in Taghmon at 8 p.m., and our final hurling league game is on next Sunday versus Rathnure in Taghmon at 7 p.m.

Finally, we had no winners in the final Co. G.A.A. development  draw last week. Once again we would like to thank all those who bought tickets to support our club for 2016.


A very understrength Senior team travelled to the Blackstairs on Tuesday of last week and went under to a heavy defeat to Rathnure in their ACHL Division 1 clash on a scoreline of 4-14 to 0-9. That makes it three defeats out of our four league games to date.

Our Junior ‘A’ team made it four wins from four games in the ACHL Division 4 when defeating Rosslare in Páirc Charman on Sunday on a scoreline of 2-12 to 0-8. Our scores came from Con O Donnagáin 1-6, Anthony Walsh 1-1, Dean Walsh 0-2, Jack Murphy, Ben O’Brien and Fran Cleary 0-1 each. That win should guarantee qualification for the league final now.

Our Junior ‘B’ team had a very good win in the ACHL Division 7 last Tuesday when they defeated town rivals Clonard in Coolcotts on a scoreline of 3-15 to 3-10.

Our Junior ‘B’ team is in league action tonight (Tuesday) when they travel to Bellefield to take on the Rapparees in ACHL Division 7 at 8 p.m. If we win this game, we are in with a chance of making the league final.

Our Senior team play the Shelmaliers in their final ACHL Division 1 game in Páirc Charman on Friday at 8 p.m. We cannot qualify for the play-off stages of the league at this stage, but this game could be ideal preparation for our next championship game versus Oulart, which could take place the following weekend.

Our Junior ‘A’ team is due to play Gusserane in their final ACHL Division 4 fixture when we host them in Páirc Charman on Sunday with a 7 p.m. start.


Our Under-14 team returned to competitive action for the first time since their All-Ireland Féile victory when we travelled to Rathnure to take on the home side on Thursday. Conditions were very difficult and we received a stern test before eventually winning by 4-6 to 1-7, with our goals coming from Richie Lawlor (two), Emmet Gahan and Oliver McMahon.

Our Under-12 team has been busy in the championship lately, drawing with a fancied Glynn-Barntown on a scoreline of 5-8 each, before losing to the Shelmaliers last week.

Our Under-16 team was due to play Bann Gaels in Páirc Charman on Monday in the fourth round of the Juvenile championship. Full details will be in next week's notes.

Our Minor team return to championship action on Saturday when we host Shelmaliers in Páirc Charman with an 11 a.m. start.

The final Model County Development Draw took place last week but unfortunately we didn't have any winner this time around. Many thanks once again to all those who purchased their tickets through the club and supported us for the draw.

Unfortunately, the Billy Byrne-selected Minor hurlers just fell short in the Leinster final as Dublin defeated them by 2-12 to 0-12. The club had a strong representation, who showed great potential. Eoin Molloy, Jack Cullen, Gary Molloy, Jack Cushe and Tiarnán Doyle were all part of the panel.

Well done to the Senior hurlers who comprehensively defeated a Wicklow Under-21 selection last week. That was in preparation for tomorrow's (Wednesday) league clash with Oulart-The Ballagh. Throw-in is at 5.45 p.m.

Our Senior camogie team was unfortunately defeated by Oulart-The Ballagh in the championship on Monday in Killurin. The girls will rally now for their final group game against St. Martin’s on July 11.

Hard luck to our Junior ‘B’ camogie team which lost the league final on Tuesday to Marshalstown by 3-10 to 2-6. The girls trailed by 2-6 to 0-3 at half-time thanks to two pointed frees from Cora Doyle and a point from Debbie Fitzharris.

They really attacked the second-half, and with two goals from placed balls from the on target Cora (one penalty, one 21-yard free) and a further three points also from Cora, the gap was closed significantly. The opposition upped it a gear, however, and pulled away to take the victory.

Commiserations also to our Under-16 camogie team which was beaten by St. Martin’s in Killurin on Wednesday but battled to the final whistle.

Well done to the Under-8 camogie team which played St. Mary's (Rosslare) on Saturday morning in Tagoat, fielding two teams who both played brilliantly.

Hard luck to the Glynn-Barntown contingent of Emma  Sweeney, Cora Doyle and Aisling Halligan, and selector Ger Sweeney and the Wexford Under-16 camogie team which travelled to Dublin on Sunday to take on Galway in the first round of the All-Ireland series but were unfortunately overcome by 6-13 to 3-12.

Well done also to Emma Walsh and Aoife Sheil and the Wexford Senior camogie team which defeated Waterford in the All-Ireland championship on Saturday in Walsh Park by 3-12 to 1-11.

Hard luck to Clodagh Jackman, Patrice O'Gorman and Emma Kiely and the Wexford Intermediate camogie team which travelled to Antrim to take on their camogie team on also on Saturday in the All-Ireland championship but were beaten by 4-16 to 2-11.

Well done to our Under-16 footballers who resumed their championship with a good win over St. Martin’s on Monday in Killurin by 3-4 to 1-7.

Both our Under-12 teams defeated two Buffers Alley teams at home on Tuesday.

Our Under-10s played host to three teams from St. Vincent’s who travelled down on Saturday for friendly hurling and football matches where the high standards were enjoyed by the spectators. Thanks to our visitors, to all the mentors for their continued hard work, and to the parents who provided refreshments.

Our Under-14 hurlers had a comfortable win over Monageer on Thursday - well done boys.
