Clonakilty minor footballers captured a first ever Premier 2 county title for the club on Monday, September 30th by virtue of a thrilling win over a gallant Inniscarra side in a game that had everything in the way of thrills, spills, drama and excitement. On a damp night and slippery surface both teams combined to produce a memorable final, worthy of the occasion and a game that will long linger in the memory of those lucky enough to have been present. Clon were slight favourites for the game but the absence of their outstanding defender, Sean White, was a major loss and those close to the team knew that Inniscarra would prove difficult opponents. Clon lost the toss and had to play against the strong breeze, away from the dressing room goal. However, it was a rampant Clon side that opened the brighter. Within a minute, the otstanding Jack O Mahony, who was to prove inspirational over the hour, scored a point from a close in free. In the third minuite Jack Cowhig, who had an excellent game, floated over a free from a really difficult angle out on the right. Clon supporters were in fine voice and things got better in the fourth minute when lively corner forward, Sean Mc Evoy evaded a succession of tackles as he cut in from the right and parted to the ever-dangerous David Lowney who planted the ball in the net. Within a minute, Eoin Ryan, who was to prove a real thorn in the side of the Inniscarra defence, knocked over a fine point from twenty five metres out. It looked as if it would turn into a rout at that stage as Clon were dominant in every facet of play. Eventually, after getting a grip around the middle of the field, Inniscarra started to attack more and a point from play in the tenth minute saw them opening their account. Sean Mc Evoy responed with a similar score for Clon a minute later. After a period of pressure, but no scores, Clon added a point by Jack O Mahony from play. This was followed by two points, free and play, from Inniscarra as they grew more and more into the game. Jack Cowhig scored a fine point from play in the twenty fifth minute and Inniscarra responded immediately with a similar score. A minute later, after further sustained pressure, Inniscarra breached the over-worked Clon defence and a penalty was conceeded, It was expertly converted with a bullett of a shot and it was very much "game on". Urged on by their large and noisy support, Inniscarra came more and more into the game and only excellent defending kept them at bay. The Clon half-back line of Mark White, Josh Henry and Tiarnan O Connell did well under pressure while the full back line were outstanding, well marshalled by Cian O Donovan, ably assisted by Darragh Mc Cullagh and Eoin Deasy. Jack O Mahony pointed from a free taken from a very tight angle on the left wing and followed with a fine point from play just before the very efficient referee, who had an excellent game, blew for half-time. At the end of a fiercely competitive and very enjoyable half it was 1-08 to 1-04 in favour of Clon. There was a great buzz in the stadium as the supporters knew that they were witnessing a really entertaining battle, fought in great spirit and with no rancour whatever. Clon had a dream start to the second half when the ever-dangerous David Lowney, a contender for man-of-the-match, raced through and kicked over a delightful point off his left leg into the city goal. Instead of deflating the Inniscarra boys the score seemed to spur them on to even greater effort. They proceeded to dominate the next ten minutes of play and turned a five point deficit into a three point lead with some devastating play that had the Clon side reeling. A point from a free in the second minute was followed by a goal a minute later when one of their forwards powered past the entire Clon defence before parting to a colleague who just beat Clon goalie, Niall Mc Carthy, to the touch. The stadium erupted as even the neutrals became engrossed in the drama that was now unfolding. Though the weather became most uncomfortable, with heavy rain falling and the surface becoming slippery, both teams threw themselves into the battle with great aplomb. Every ball was contested as if the outcome of the game depended on it. The physically stronger Inniscarra boys revelled in the conditions. They ran at the hard pressed Clon defence at every opportunity and a point from play in the seventh minute had them ahead for the first time. When they added similar scores in the eight and tenth minutes they were three points to the good and looked all over the winners as a shell-shocked Clon side seemed helpless to turn the tide back. Inniscarra were dominating possession and retaining it very well. Clon were thrown a life line when Jack Cowhig scored a fine point from play and Jack O Mahony added another a minute later. The Clon mentors made a master stroke at this stage by introducing young Ross Mannix and he proved to be an inspirational substitute. He tapped over a lovely point from the left wing and after a period when both sides missed chances it was the inspirational Jack O Mahony who gave Clon the lead with a wonderful point from play. The momentum appeared to be with Clon now and Jack Cowhig added a similar score in the twenty first minute. Clon then had to withstand some fierce pressure and their goal led a charmed existence. Inniscarra missed one glorious goal chance from a few metres out when the first time effort of one of the players was kicked wide when it seemed easier to score. Another high ball into the goal was just batted out by Niall Mc Carthy from under the crossbar and the ever vigilant Cian O Donovan completed the clearance. Clon certainly enjoyed the rub of the green in those desperate minutes as an incredibly brave Inniscarra side threw everything at them. Eventually, the siege was temporarily lifted with five minutes left on the clock as a long ball out of defence found Jack Cowhig and as he raced for goal he was fouled. He converted the free himself to make the margin three points. Inniscarra were not done for yet. Displaying extraordinary energy and determination in the conditions, they laid siege to the Clon goal. Clon defenders had to concede frees and two points from those close-in frees in the fifty seventh and fifty ninth minutes left the minimum between the sides. In between, Clon had another lucky escape as a terrific shot from one of the Inniscarra forwards struck the crossbar and rebounded to safety. Clon hearts were in their mouths and it was certainly not a place for the faint-hearted. Supporters of both teams, as well as neutrals who had come to watch the second game, were now equally engrossed in the drama and there was an unbelieveable atmosphere in the ground as the final dramatic minutes were played out by two wonderful teams, each striving for a first county title in the grade. Nobody would have complained if the game finished level. It very nearly did. With the clock showing thirty minutes gone Inniscarra mounted a desperate attack and one of their players bore down on goal. With the levelling point at his mercy, he opted to go for a goal, apparently in the mistaken belief that his side were two points down. Three Clon defenders converged on him at the edge of the small square and he was held up well. As he fell to the ground there were shouts for a penalty but they were rightly waived away by the excellently positioned referee. The ball was cleared and after a delay over a contested line ball, the final whistle was sounded. The scoreboard stood at 1-15 to 2-11 in favour of Clon. The referee's final whistle sparked off wild scenes of delight among Clon players and supporters. After many heartbreaks in Pairc Ui Rinn, Clon had broken their hoodoo there, and a first county minor football title had been won. The win was a reward for a great effort made all year. It was a also a reward for the determination shown by the players in overcoming adversity. They had been forced to play the semi-final with a depleted team and, though under strength again for the final, in less than satisfactory circumstances, they had shown marvellous commitment and determination to triumph. Amid wild scenes of delight the cup was presented to a very worthy captain, Jack O Mahony and Clon's delight was added to when Jack Cowhig was named man-of-the-match. He deserved the honour but there were many of his team mates in contention also. It was a team effort from start ot finsh. Over the course of a very impressive campaign twenty two players saw action. Each and every member of the panel can look back with satisfaction at what was achieved. The team mentors, John Leahy, Eoin O Mahony, Eoin Ryan and Podge Tanner can feel proud of the part they played in masterminding a famous win. The defeated Inniscarra side were shattered at the final whistle but they too can look back with pride at the part they played in making this a memorable county final, worthy of the occasion. The Clon team was; Niall Mc Carthy, Eoin Deasy, Cian O Donovan, Darragh Mc Cullagh, Tiarnan O Connell, Josh Henry, Mark White, Paul O Regan, Cian Crowley, John Paul Maughan, David Lowney, Eoin Ryan, Sean Mc Evoy, Jack Cowhig and Jack O Mahony (Capt) Ross Mannix came on for John Paul Maughan. Others who were on the panel were; Ciaran Crowley, Eoin O Neill, Peter O Regan, Zack Harrington, Sean O Donoghue and Liam O Donovan. Unavailable for the final were Sean White and Joe White. Both had played important parts during the campaign.

Clonakilty under 21 footballers took on Valley Rovers in the county final in Pairc Ui Rinn on Sunday, August 25th. On a fine afternoon and in near perfect conditions there was a very large crowd present and a great atmosphere prevailed. Unfortunately, both teams showed signs of nervousness, and poor shooting was the order of the day as scores were at a premium throughout. The Innishannon side were especially guilty in that regard but much of this was due to excellent Clon defending. Clon opened brightly and after a few attacks had been repelled it was Jack Cowhig who got the first score of the game after two minutes when he kicked over a fine point from a tight angle into the scoreboard end. A further seven minutes elapsed before the next score, a point from play to Valley Rovers. They quickly followed up with a similar score a minute later.. Clon had missed numerous chances in the meantime and for the next eight minutes play swung one way and then the other before an excellent point from a free, way out on the left sideline, was converted by Barry O Mahony.. There was no score again until the 26th minute when the Innishannon side pointed from play to leave the score at three points to two in favour of Valley Rovers. That was how it remained until half-time. Both teams were glad to hear the half time whistle as it was clear that neither of them had done themselves justice in a nervous and scrappy first half. The fresh breeze would favour Valley Rovers in the second half but that seemed to make little difference as Clon opened brightly and the dangerous Johnny Leahy scored an excellent point in the fourth minute from the right wing, the ball just making it over the bar off the goalie's fingertips. The same player scored the next point, again from play, in the eight minute. Three minutes later Leahy went on a brilliant run through the Rovers defence and and as he bore down on goal he was fouled just outside the square. He converted the free himself. Eventually, after many bad misses, the Innishannon side opened their account for the second half with a point from play in the sixteenth minute. Jack Cowhig responed with a point from play two minutes later and Clon appeared to be in control of the game when Ian Falvey rose high to tap the ball to the net in the eighteenth minute. The large Clon crowd were in fine voice now as they sensed victory. It was not until the 23rd minute that Valley Rovers finally got back on the scoresheet, with a point from play. They quickly added another similar score to leave a goal between the sides. With less than five minutes remaining Clon still appeared to be in control but an extraordinary sequence of events followed. A desperate attack by the Valley Rovers side saw one of their players shoot at goal from around twenty mnetres out. The ball cannnoned off a Clon defender and rebounded out the field to great cheers from relieved Clon supporters. Incredibly, the referee blew his whistle. Not even the most optimistic Valley Rovers supporters could have envisaged the decision he was about to give. To the consternation of everyone in the ground, including the clearly confused Valley Rovers players, he awarded a penalty apparently deeming that the Clon defender had been guilty of a foot-block. Despite protestations from the shocked Clon defenders, the absurd decision stood. Though Aidan Collins got his hand to the ball, it rebounded kindly to the penalty-taker and he knocked it into the empty net. The sides were level now and all of the momentum was with Valley Rovers. Within minutes, while Clon players were still protesting at the penalty decision, another attack saw the ball break loose and it was tapped into the Clon net for the clinching goal. Shortly after, the final whistle blew and, though it was a travesty of justice, Valley Rovers were winners on a score of 2-06 to 1-06. Clon players were understandably distraught. Losing a county final is always disappointing, but is part and parcel of the sport when the opposition play better. On this occasion there could be no doubt as to why Clon lost. It had little to do with Valley Rovers being the better team! Their players and supporters honestly admitted after the match that that the penalty should not not have been awarded. Clon had been deprived of a title that they richly deserved. The circumstances of the dramatic loss were as bizarre as they were unacceptable. Neutrals were as shocked at what had unfolded as were the Clon players, mentors and supporters. The defeat will long rankle with the Clonakilty club. Clonakilty have a long and proud tradition in Cork GAA. They have long since come to accept defeats as part and parcel of sport. Being defeated when the opposition is better than you is one thing. It is something that has to be accepoted. Defeat in the circumstances that unfolded in this match is entirely another. Hopefully, there will be many successful days for this group of players. They deserve better than they got on Sunday, August 25th 2013. Team; Aidan Collins, Colm Sheehy, Joe White, Cian O Donovan, Martin Scally, Sean White, Gearoid Barry, Thomas Clancy (c), Stephen Sheehy, Graham Murray, Barry O Mahony, Jack O Mahony, John Leahy, Jack Cowhig and Ian Falvey, Subs used; J.P Maughan for Stephen Sheehy, Scott Sheehan for Martin Scally. Other panel members were; Niall Mc Carthy, Alan O Sullivan, Cian Crowley, Josh Henry, Eoin Ryan and Jack Barrett. Team Coach was Sean Cowhig.

Clonakilty under 21 footballers took on reigning county champions and hot favourites, Nemo Rangers in the county semi-final in Bandon on Wednesday evening, July 10th in glorious sunshine and on a perfect pitch. This was a first-ever championship meeting of the clubs in this grade. The city side entered the game as the warmest of favourites, with no less than 13 of the previous year's county winning team on duty. Clon had to line out without full-back, Joe White due to injury. Martin Scally came in to a rearranged defence and did very well. A large crowd, mostly supporting Clon, was present as referee, Padraig O Leary set the game in motion. With the sun to their backs, Clon played into the town goal. There was scarcely a puff of wind. In the hectic opening exchanges both sides missed chances and it was the Nemo men who finally scored the opening point, from play,after four minutes. Clon replied with a similar score a minute later when the strong running Ian Falvey kicked over from thirty metres, out on the right. Nemo scored a point from play and followed up with one from a free in the next five minutes as Clon struggled to stay in contention. In the middle of the half Thomas Clancy kicked over a “45” and John Leahy followed with a point from play. Nemo missed numerous chances after this and though they did point a “45” and followed with a point from play, they failed to press home their advantage. Two glorious goal chances were missed, to the relief of Clon players and supporters. Just before the break, the hard working Jack O Mahony pointed a close-in free to leave the minimum between the sides as they players retired for a well deserved break, with the temperatures still well above 20 degrees. Before the break Clon had replaced the out of sorts Barry O Mahony with the determined and hard trying J.P. Maughan. He added a bit of vital strength to an attack that had had failed to function in the opening period. Despite being badly outplayed, Clon were only a point behind, five to four. It was a transformed Clon side that took the field for the second half. Thomas Clancy dominated possession around the middle and fielded some magnificent balls. There was more urgency in the Clon attack, where Jack O Mahony was especially impressive and John Leahy was a constant threat when in possession. The Clon defence was outstanding, with Sean White and Cian O Donovan especially prominent. They got tremendous help from Colm Sheehy, Scott Shehan, Martin Scally and Gearoid Barry. All six worked well as a unit and put the much vaunted Nemo attack under such pressure that the city side went twenty minutes without scoring at one stage during the second half. Behind this amgnificent defence, Aidan Collins was soundness personified. His lengthy kick-outs were a big benefit to the team. Clon levelled soon after the break with a fine point from play by Falvey. Nemo missed numerous chances to regain the lead, some of their shooting being truly abysmal. After a particularly poor effort their heads appeared to drop and Clon took control. Thomas Clancy, easily man of the match, won a great ball and parted to Leahy who scored from play to give his side the lead for the first time after 41 minutes. Within a minute Clon struck a again when Barry O Mahony, re-introduced for Stephen Sheehy, kicked a fine point from a thirty five metre free, well out on the left and directly into the blinding evening sun. When the city side missed a number of scoring chances in the next few minutes Clon supporters started to sense that, against all the odds, it might be their night. Nemo eventually got their first score of the half to narrow the gap to the minmum, at 0-07 to 0-06. Leahy then scored a great point from play with eight minutes remaining and the excitement and tension had the large crowd on their toes. Clon held on grimly until four minutes from time. A short kick-out was won by a Clon defender who was harshly penalised and the close-in free was converted to give the Nemo men a lifelione. They won the next kick-out and set up a swift attack that ended with a newly introduced sub, barely on the field, finshing to the net from close range. It looked like Clon's gallant effort was to come up short. However, the players had other ideas. They attacked determinedly and eventually got the break that their persistence and courage deserved. Johnny Leahy won possession out on the left wing and raced towards goal. He was brought to ground on the edge of the square. Nemo defenders surrounded the referee, some claiming that Leahy had charged with the ball and others claiming that any infringement occured just outside the large square. Their protests came to nothing. The decision to award a penalty stood and the ice cool Gearoid Barry stepped forward to finish to the net with a bullet of a shot, low along the ground and into the bottom left hand corner as he looked at the goal. The roar that greeted the goal could have been heard all over Bandon town. The game was now in injury time and the referee allowed it continue for three further agonising minutes. Clon succeeded in playing a possesion game, somehow managing to keep their hands on the ball at all times. The Nemo players became frustrated. Suddenly, a long ball from a surrounded Clon player found a colleague in splendid isolation on the right wing. Clon were able to lauch a counter attack and the impressive J.P. Maughan raced towards goal and calmly kicked over the bar to extend Clon's lead to two points. The final whistle blew on the kick-out and delirious Clon supporters swarmed onto the field to accalaim their heroes. It was a few minutes before order could be restored as Clon players and supporters celebrated a famous win. The players were cheered and clapped off the field by their large band of delighted supporters. Clon were able to start thinking about a county final date with Valley Rovers. While Thomas Clancy was the outstanding player on the field, the Clon defence deserve most of the credit for this win. Clon also used their bench to very good effect on this occasion, with J.P. Maughan and Josh Henry both being introduced to play major roles. Graham Murray was excellent all through, while Ian Falvey, Jack Cowhig and Stephen Sheehy can all feel proud at playing a role in a historic win. The management team are deserving of the highest praise for leading this team to a rare county final. The commitment was summed up by Sean Cowhig's efforts in returning from a family holiday abroad to be present to guide his team. Clon team; Aidan Collins, Colm Sheehy, Martin Scally, Cian O Donovan, Scott Sheehan, Sean White, Gearoid Barry, Thomas Clancy (c), Stephen Sheehy, Jack O Mahony, Barry O Mahony, Graham Murray, Ian Falvey, Jack Cowhig and Johnny Leahy. Subs used; J.P. Maughan for Barry O Mahony, Barry O Mahony for Stephen Sheehy and Josh Henry for Jack Cowhig

Clonakilty under 21 footballers took on Beara in the county championship quarter-final on Monday, June 24th in Bantry. It was a dull and slightly damp evening and the pitch was rather heavy and slippery but conditions were generally quite good. Clon had not played since the West Cork final almost two months earlier and the team's preparations had been interrupted by players being involved in other grades and competitions, with a number also involved in exams up to very recently. Clon also had to line out without full-back, Joe White, away on holiday. In the opening exchanges Clon lacked the fluency and dash that had been a hallmark of their performances in the West Cork champuionship. Their shooting was way off target and they ran up a total of 12 wides in the first half alone. Beara opened the scoring with a good point from play in the second minute. After some poor efforts, Clon finally got on the board courtesy of a fine Thomas Clancy point from play after seven minutes. Beara quickly responded with two points from play in the eight and ninth minutes. Clon were under presure now and the physically stronger Beara boys were dominating play, especially around the middle. All of the breaking ball was being picked up by the eager Beara lads and Clon were struggling to stay in touch. In the eleventh minute Barry O Mahony kicked a mighty point from a fifty metre free. Beara responded immediately with a point from play and added another from a free after seventeen minutes. It was five to two in favour of Beara now and Clon needed to do something to stay in contention. To their credit, they did just that, hitting four unanswered points in the next five minutes, Jack O Mahony, Barry O Mahony, Jack Cowhig and Scott Sheehan, all from play, kicked great points to push Clon ahead. However, Beara responded with a point of their own from play in the twenty ninth minute, followed by a pointed free as the game moved into added time. Beara led by seven points to six at the short whistle, with Clon players and supporters alike not exactly happy at many controversial refereeing decisions in the opening half. Clon returned a more determined team for the second half but needlessly turned over possession in the first sequence of play and then conceded a free which was knocked over the bar to extend Beara's lead. Clon responded immediately with a fine point from play by Jack Cowhig. Within a minute, Clon had the ball in the net when Jack O Mahony was at the end of a great movement to finish from close range. Jonathan Leahy added a point from play and it was all Clon now. They failed to take advantage of good possession however and after some bad misses by a variety of Clon players it was Beara who got the next four scores. A pointed free after ten minutes was followed by a point from play two minutes later. Another pointed free in the fourteenth minute was followed by a point from play a minute later and Beara looked the more likely winners at this stage. A great solo run by the impressive Sean White saw him take the ball deep into the Beara half before passing to Ian Falvey who kicked over from a tight angle on the left. The score inspired Clon and, in the very next attack, a ball, probably intended as an effort at a point, fell short and was punched to the net by the alert Johnny Leahy. Within a minute, Clon had opened up the Beara defence again and in a bizarre sequence of play Clon missed three glorious chances at scoring a goal. In the middle of all the confusion a Clon forward was grounded in the small square as he was about to finish to the net. A penalty was awarded and Gearoid Barry was entrusted with the kick. His fine effort shaved the crossbar as it flew over for a point. Clon were four points to the good but the Beara men took inspiration from the miss and took over for the remaining ten minutes or so. A pointed free in the twenty third minute was followed by a point from play two minutes later. The Clon goal led a charmed existence in the remaining minutes as Beara threw everything at Clon in a desperate attempt to salvage the game. A point from play as the game moved into added time left the minimun between the sides. There were still four nail-biting mintes of added time to endure for the many Clon supporters, who far out numbered their Beara counterparts. Clon tried to hold possession and were eventually penalised for over-holding in the third minute of added time. The rersultant free, from out on the right-hand sideline, was delayed while an injured player was being attended to. After at least a minute, the free was finaly taken. To the cheers of the large Clon following it sailed right and wide. The referee called for the ball before the kick-out could be taken. At the end of a game of swaying fortunes Clon were the winners by a single point, 2-10 to 0-15. They now advance to meet the wiiners of the Nemo Rangers v Pobaill Ui Chaoimh game in the semi-final. Fermoy play Valley Rovers in the other semi-final. Clon can feel happy that they advanced despite playing well below their best Team; Aidan Collins, Colm Sheehy, Martin Scally, Cian O Donovan,Scott Sheehan, Sean White, Gearoid Barry, Thomas Clancy, Stephen Sheehy, Graham Murray, Barry O Mahony, Jack O Mahony, Ian Falvey, Jack Cowhig and Johnny Leahy. Unusually, no subs were used. Also on the panel were; Niall Mc Carthy, Alan O Sullivan, Cian Crowley, Eoin Ryan, JP Maughan, Josh Henry and Jack Barrett.
