The Senior team were narrowly defeated by Valley Rovers on Sunday last 1-10 to 2-06. The team played well in the opening half and led 2-03 to 0-06 at half time despite playing against a strong wind. Clon maintained their lead entering the last 5 minutes but conceded 1-01 and were unable to take a number of chances in the closing minutes to earn a draw or a deserved win. There is no league game scheduled for next weekend
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.

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.

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.

The Seniors moved into second place in the Division 1 table after they ground out a hard fought victory against St Finbarrs on Sunday last. After playing with the wind in the opening half they looked likely to only have a slender half time lead before they were boosted by a goal on the stroke of half time from Mark O'Sullivan. A penalty was then converted in the opening stages by Geroid Barry and Clon comfortably saw out a 2-06 to 0-05 win thanks to excellent defending.

It was a disappointing weekend on the playing pitch with the two competitive games played resulting in narrow defeats. First into action was an experimental U21 Football team who overcame a Kilbrittian side in a useful challenge game played on Saturday evening.Further challenge games are scheduled before their opening West Cork championship game against O'Donovan Rossa. The Senior team faced a tough challenge in their Division 1 game with an away game against reigning league champions Nemo Rangers. Despite having to name an understrength side due to a number of injuries and illness Clon put in a very encouraging performance. The sides were level entering the final 10 minutes before Nemo pulled away with the final three scores to win 1-12 to 1-09. The Intermediate side played Grenagh on Sunday afternoon in Ahamilla. They also put in a very competitive performance against a physically bigger side. The concession of the only 2 goals of the game proved to be the difference as Grenagh won 2-09 to 0-09.
