On Friday evening last our adult hurlers played St Anne’s in the last round of the group and lost by a small margin of 2 points after putting in a great performance – hard luck guys . The Clonard u10s were back in action on Friday night in a hurling fixture vs Taghmon/Camross played in Coolcotts. With twenty-one blues in attendance two games were played against the opposition. Clonard óg played well in both their games. In one game it was an eight versus eight match up with good Clonard play in all three thirds of the game with some excellent team play evident in the final third – including a fine goal by John Dwyer in the forwards. In the other game it was a ten versus ten match up with strong performances by the little blues. While players rotated their positions in this game Shannon, James and Conor ran the midfield with Cormac, Orlaith and Mikey strong in defence, Ella Jenna and Cormac eile did the running up front, while Troy played in a number of positions showing some nice clean strikes. Congratulations to Jonathon playing his first game for the club. Also a welcome back to Crann who was back in action after his holidays – Clonard uber alles. The 10s are back in action in training on Tuesday and in a football blitz on Friday evening next in Rosslare. Clonard 8s played in the Bill Cullen blitz hosted by Naomh Eanna on Saturday. Clonard fielding two teams in the blitz played against our generous hosts Naomh Eanna as well as Oylegate, Buffers Alley and Oulart. The Clonard team fielded on Pitch 1 and 2 were competitive against all the teams bar our hosts who were strong opposition. The Clonard team who played on pitch 3 and 4 – many of whom are still just starting out on their journey with Clonard and their journey playing hurling – gave it everything putting in some fine performances. It was a day to be enjoyed by all players. While there is no doubt we played some good teams, strongholds of hurling in the county, the little blues showed that with consistent effort and practise in training they can compete. The blitz was a great experience for the players and club and one that gives all the coaches, players and parents an opportunity to learn from to continue in their development. Clonard Abu.
