Cloone GAA Club Notes 12/03/2018

SWAN BAR DIV 4 LEAGUE – The 2018 div 4 league started on Saturday evening last, when we played Ballinaglera in the Park. If ever a game in capsuled everything that is good about the GAA this game certainly did. Firstly we are indebted to Ballinaglera for agreeing to play the game at a later time, to facilitate players working and we would like to thank them for travelling to Cloone for the game that was a home game for them. This is the type of co-operation we have come accustomed to from this very sporting Club. The game itself was played in very sporting manner with Ballinaglera winning on a scoreline of 3 14 to 2 03. Irrespective of the scoreline it was great to see the two clubs being in a position to field a second team and well done to all involved. Ballinaglera players and mentors also joined us for some after match refreshment upstairs in the club rooms. Another encouraging aspect of the game was the number of our young players who are eligible to play adult football this year, and all acquitted themselves very well. Of course, there were some not so young who were making a comeback which was great to see. Cloone team A Canning, J Veesey, R McCaffrey, G McKeon, R Maguire, D Keegan, J Creegan, M Bohan, D Kelly, M Tiernan, A Kelly T Doherty, R Mulvey, A Nichols A Beirne, Sub used A Mulvey. The club would like to extend a sincere word of gratitude to the ladies who looked after the catering on the evening, namely Angela Keegan, Mary Doherty, and Anne Maguire. This weekend we play Aughavas and no doubt another cracker in store. All players are asked to be available.

QUIZ TEAM – On Saturday evening the club participated in the final of the Leitrim Scór Sinsir quiz, held in Drumshanbo. The team put in a great performance and lined out as follows, Ashling McCabe, Tara McCabe, James McCabe Enda Tiernan. On Friday evening we hosted Scór na Mbunscol in the Community Centre which was a great success with the hall packed to the rafters. A great night’s entertainment was provided which is a credit to all the schools who participated and to the Committee of Coiste Scór Liatroma for all the work they put into running this event.
