LEITRIM SENIOR HURLING FINAL
Cluainín Iomáint 1-11 Carrick 0-12
Cluainín claimed their first Leitrim Senior Hurling title in 53 years when they narrowly defeated Carrick at Carrick-on-Shannon on Saturday.
The only goal of the game, which went the way of the eventual champions, came in the ninth minute from Niall McLoughlin. Cluainín were dominant in the first half however, Carrick rallied well in the second half and actually led by 0-12 to 1-8 with 14 minutes remaining, thanks to a score from Clement Cunniffe.
Cluainín finished strongly, though, with a free from CaptainÓgary Hickey drawing them level in the 57th minute, before points from Man of the Match Michael Poniard and Mícheál Dolan sealed a famous win for the Manorhamilton outfit.
Great scenes of celebrationÓgreeted the final whistle and it was poignant that Gary Hickey lifted the cup alongside the last man to captain Manorhamilton to a Hurling Championship victory in 1959, namely Eugene Gilroy.
We take this opportunity to congratulate Cluainín and wish them the very best of luck as they host the Sligo champions Calry St Josephs this Bank Holiday Monday at 2.30 in Páirc Seán in the semi final of the AIB Connacht Club Junior Hurling Championship.

Stephen Dorrigan U13 Hurling Tournament
The Stephen Dorrigan Under 13 Hurling Tournament took place last Saturday with Carrick, Ballinamore, Gortletteragh and Cluainin Iomaint Hurling Clubs all participating and displayed great hurling skills. St. Mary’s Hurling Club won the tournament and they were captained by the very skillful Lee McManus who will be a hurler to watch in the future. All hurlers from the four clubs received medals for their participation in the tournament.
Under 16 Championship
Cluainin Iomaint played Ballinamore last Thursday in Drumkeerin. In perfect conditions for hurling both teams fought hard in the first half with Cluainin missing some vital scores from frees. Ballinamore grew with confidence as the game progressed and were 1.03 to 0.01 ahead by half time. In the second half it was one-way-traffic as Ballinamore dominated in the main positions with Kevin Mullen fielding some spectacular catches with great support from Aaron McLoughlin, Niall McGovern, Aaron Hoare, James Hamill and Darren Maxwell. Best for Manor were Peter Poniard, Andrew Loughlin, Stephen Loughlin and the hard working Mathew Kerrigan. A special thanks to the Drumkeerin GAA club for the use of their pitch which was ideal for hurling and is a credit to their club.
