U21 C Football v Glengarriff

The U21C team had a very good win on Sunday 19th March in Skibbereen against Glengarrif. Clon faced a strong wind in the opening half and got off to a slow start to trail 1-02 to 0-01 early. A goal by Darragh McCullagh brought Clon back into the game and trailed only 1-05 to 1-02 at half time with the strong breeze at our advantage for the second half. At the start of the second half Clon conceded a second soft goal and Clon still trailed by 5 points entering the last quarter. In a strong finish we scored the last six score to get a narrow and encouraging win 1-10 to 2-06.

U21 Football Championship V O'Donovan Rossa

The U21A Football team got their Championship campaign underway on Saturday 18th March in Rosscarbery v O'Donovan Rossa.  Clon came into the game as strong favourites against a youthful opposition. O'Donovan Rossa deployed a very defensive system in the early stages which Clon struggle to break down. Clon gradually dominated the first half to comfortably lead 0-07 to 0--2 at half time. Clon began the second half as they finished the first and a flicked goal from Paul O'Regan increased the lead 1-07 to 0-04. From here until the end of the game O'Donovan Rossa grew into the game and scored two goals to narrow the gap to 1-10 to 2-04. Clon were under pressure but held out to score a deserved win 1-12 to 2-06 and advance to play Ahane Gaels in the quarter final.

Health & Wellbeing Night in Ahamilla

A very successful Health & Wellbeing night was held in Ahamilla last night and was attended by a large number of club members and players.

Informative presentations were given by AIB on Internet Banking and their long standing association with the GAA. Noel O'Callgahan of the County Board outlined his role and the various challenges facing GAA clubs including gambling, alcohol and drug addictions. Paddy Duggan was next to speak and gave an insight into the work being done country wide and brought back very positive message from the recent GAA roadshow held in Nemo Rangers.

The final speaker was Conor Cusack. A much recognised figure he gave a very positive message about facing his own issues and how help in at hand for anyone that requires it and also outlining the very real and multiple issues that the GAA must come to terms with and ensure their members are adequately looked after.
