Clonard 10s played Kilmore for the third time this season – the second time in football  in Coolcotts on Friday night. Like all encounters with Kilmore this was a good test for the blues. On the night Clonard brought a strong panel lining out an eleven a-side team with players rotated in and out. While it was a rocky start for Clonard óg, they settled and gave a very good account of themselves, with the match swinging in the blues favour towards the end. With only one game played on the night, players not fielded took part in a competitive training match to ensure their continued development. A sincere thanks to all the players for their efforts – those starting out with us and the veterans of U10 – and to the parents for their support. The 10s have a hurling blitz upcoming as well as potentially a game the week after. Clonard Abú.


Clonard U8s played town rivals St Josephs on Saturday morning in Coolcotts. Clonard had a strong panel for the game and fielded two teams against the Bishopswater outfit. With this game coming a week after a competitive match against fellow town rivals St Mary’s, Clonard blues were quick to find their rhythm in the game. This was a good run run out for the little blues with the skill level and commitment in evidence. While players and coaches have much work to do in their development this was a good day for the blues. On Saturday next 24th September our little blues U-8’s will head to Naomh Eanna for their annual football blitz. We have entered an A and B team of 11 aside. Let’s make it a big family day out bring the deck chairs/ blankets and a picnic.
