Clonakilty took on Bantry in the county premier 2 minor football championship final on Monday, October 5th in Castlehaven. Unfortunately, the game was played in very poor weather conditions, with a cross-field wind and constant rain making life difficult for players and spectators alike. A close contest was anticipated, with the preview in the day's “Evening Echo” predicting a draw as a likely result. Despite the poor weather there was a fine crowd present as the teams took the field. Clon played into the goal at the main entrance in the first half. Bantry opened brightly and had two points on the board within as many minutes. They also missed a goal opportunity before Clon got on the scorebaord. When their first score came it was a cracking goal by David Lowney after a tremendous solo run from the middle of the field before shooting low to the right hand side of the goal from around thirteen metres out, giving the despairing Bantry 'keeper no chance. Four minutes later the same player added a great point from play. Within a minute a rampant Clon had added another point from play by Sean Mc Evoy. In the twelfth minute Ross Mannix, who was outstanding all through, scored a point from play. Lowney added a similar score and then struck for a brilliant goal, placing the ball low beneath the 'keeper after taking a great pass from Mannix. The game was effectively over as a contest at this stage as Clon were in complete control. Bantry finally added to their tally with two points in quick successiuon in the 25th and 26th minutes but Clon finished the half strongly with points from Mc Evoy and Lowney. Bantry did add a point from a free just before the break and at the short whistle it was 2-07 to 0-05 to Clon and their large band of supporters were on good terms with themselves.
The second half started with a fine point from play by McEvoy and Bantry responded with a point from a free in the 2nd minute. Ross Mannix then pointed from a free and Bantry repied with a point from play. With Bantry failing to breach the teak tough Clo defence it was 2-09 to 0-07 after forty minutes and Bantry desperately needed a goal to haul themselves back into the contest. Try as they might, they failed to make the breakthrough and three further points from Sean O'Donoghue, Mannix and Lowney had Clon in complete control. The icing on the cake for Clon's supporters came with seven minutes remaining. Strong play by the impressive Mark White saw him race thriough the Bantry defence before delivering to O'Donogue, whose first effort was blocked but who gleefuly stroked home the rebound from close range. Sub. Chris Collins pointed from play and the scoring was completed with a late pointed free from Bantry. The final score was 3-13 to 0-08. Though the result was a foregone conclusion long before the end there were great scenes of joy when the capable and impartial referee blew the final whistle. Clon supporters raced onto the field to acclaim their heroes and the cup was presented to Clon's outstanding captain, Tiarnan O Connell by Jim Forbes, Chariman of Coiste na nOg Central. For Clon, this was a second win in this championship in the space of two years, following on the thrilling win over Inniscarra in the 2013 final. While man-of-the-match David Lowney was rightly praised for his outstanding performance, this was very much a team effort. In fact it was one of the finest all round performances given by a Clon team in many a day. Ryan Doonan was outstanding in goak, as he had been all year. The full back line of Conor Scally, Zack Harrington and Paul Daly were soundness personified, with Harrington especially impresive by keeping Bantry's much vaunted captain, Arthur Coakley, in check all through. The half back line of Liam O Connor, Tiarnan O'Connell and Liam O'Donovan were outstanding over the entire hour. O'Connell kept Bantry's top player, Tim Foley, under control and this was hugely significant. At mid-field Clon were totally dominant. David Lowney gained possession at will and regularly ran through the heart of the Bantry defence while Mark White had his best game of the year, using his height and strength to great effect. Joe Hughes, Darragh O Mahony and Thomas Hayes all did well and covered back to great effect when the Clon midfielders went forward. Ross Mannix, Sean Mc Evoy and Sean O'Donoghue totally dominated their immediate opponents and tormented the Bantry defence all night. Clon were fortunate to have real strength in depth and were able to call on Chris Collins, Alex Moore, Declan O'Sullivan, Barry Downey and David Walsh to come in and play important roles. Others on the panel were;Ryan Miller, Cathal O'Regan, Ferdia Mc Carthy, Oisin Walsh, Maurice Shanley, Olan O'O'Donovan and Shane Collins, all of whom played a part in the campaign. The team manager was Brendan Walsh who deserves immense credit for his training and handling of this group of players. His fellow selectors also deserve praise. They were, Des Mc Auley, Noel O'Callaghan, Larry O'Sullivan, Pa Minihan and Ger Mc Carthy. Team sponsors were Clonakilty Blackpudding Company.
