Cloone GAA Club Notes 06/11/2017

HISTORY CORNER – The answers to last week’s quiz were, the game was against Glencar Manor, played in Bee Park and the referee was the late J.P.Newton (R.I.P.). Better not mention who the umpire was. Now the history corner turns to the underage section of the club. On 27 of April 1971, the following group of young men donned the blue and gold to represent their parish and their club in the first round of that year’s competition. The team lined out as follows, John Dillon, Brian Mulvey, John Gormley, Shane Creegan, Martin Mulvey, Sean McGovern, Hughie McGovern, Gerry Mulvey, Colm Moran, Paudge McCrann, Tadgh McHugh, Sean Doherty, Mick Harte, Padraigh Conway, Peter o Donnell. The team was defeated on a scoreline of 3 12 to 1 03. What was the competition and who were the high profile opposition?

CONNACHT CHAMPIONSHIP – We would like to extend our compliments to Leitrim County Senior Champions Mohill GAA Senior football team on their excellent performance in the Connacht Championship against Castlebar Mitchells in Castlebar on Saturday last. With the odds stacked against them, the team performed very well and were worthy County representatives.

COME DINE WITH ME – Our Annual fundraiser ‘Come Dine With Me’ takes place on Saturday night December 2nd. There are still vacancies for hosts, and if anyone would like to act as a host please give your name to club Secretary Martin McCaffrey as soon as possible.

COUNTY PANEL – Our prolific goal scorer Darren Carberry has been called into the County panel by County team manager Brendan Guckian. We wish Darren the best of luck and we look forward to him donning the green and gold in the season ahead.
