CLAUGHAUN GAA CLUB NOTES
The club would like to congratulate the intermediate football panel and management for their County Final win over Gerald Griffin’s last Sunday week 27th. September which saw us return to senior football after a 10 year absence. The lads were the quicker to start and raced into a 0-06 to 0-02 lead at the first water break. It was to be a low scoring second quarter with Gerald Griffin’s grabbing the only score which saw us take a 0-06 to 0-03 lead into the half time interval. Playing against the wind in the second half, the lads were fantastic in every aspect of their play. They defended extremely well but more importantly kept the scoreboard moving at every opportunity. The final whistle came with the scoreline reading 0-10 to 0-07 in our favour to the delight of every Claughaun person lucky enough to be in attendance, and also all those watching from home. The outpour of emotion on the field was incredible as Sam Mullins collected the cup, and a decade of ambition was finally satisfied. Commiserations to Gerald Griffin’s who had a fantastic year and just fell short on the day. Their sportsmanship and grace in defeat did their club and jersey proud and we wish them the best in the years to come. Team: Ronan Power, Darren Kenihan, Craig Carew, Alan Kiely, Padraic O’Reilly (0-01), Cian Graham, Mark O’Halloran, Cian Byrnes (0-02), Kevin Howard (0-01), Jamie McGarry, Ciaran Moran, Alex Kiely, Eoin Murphy (0-01), Gary Bateman (0-05), Sam Mullins Subs: Tony McCarthy, Gearoid Brennan, Rob Healy, Gary O’Connor, Tadhg Bennett, Shane Mullally, Michael Togher Clancy, Matthew Graham, Cian Galligan, Chima Ohanya, Jack McGarry, Jack Culligan, Peter Garland, Aodhan Frain.
Current restrictions have led to the postponement of our County Semi Final vs Croagh/Kilfinny. The team continue to prepare and await a fixture update.
Club Limerick Draw:
With many clubs facing a substantial loss in income due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Club Limerick Draw has become much more important as a means of coping with the increasing costs of running a club both on and off the field. We would ask that all those with an interest in Claughaun consider subscribing to the draw.
The club lotto remains postponed until further notice. We look forward to the time when we can resume the weekly draw as normal.
