Clonakilty Senior Ladies travelled to Eire Og on Sunday March 30th to take on the locals in the Senior League. Clon played against the breeze in the first half and got off to a great start with a goal from Ciara Ryan. However as the half wore on Clon found themselves under increasing pressure from a lively Eire Og outfit. At half time Eire Og led 2-07 to 1-01. Clon battled well in the second half and took some fine scores from Carol Ann O’Donovan, Sinead O’Neill and a good goal from Jenny Quinn narrowed the gap but they were unable to get close enough. Final score: Eire Og 2-12 Clon 2-06. This was a decent performance considering that Clon had 16 players 3 of whom were carrying injuries. Special mention also to Martina O’Brien, Aileen McCarthy, Aine O’Leary and Maura O’Brien in a brave team performance. Panel: Team: Martina O’Brien, Aoife O’Neill, Carol Ann O’Donovan (Capt) (0-02, 0-01 free), Rebecca McAree, Niamh Deasy, Sinead O’Neill (0-01), Susie Forristal, Claire O’Leary, Beulah McManus (0-01), Aileen McCrathy, Aine O’Leary, Ciara Ryan (1-00), Maura O’Brien, Jenny Quinn (1-02, 0-1 free), Ellen Hayes, Louise Collins.
Clon Senior Ladies continued their league campaign when they entertained reigning county champions St Val’s in Ahamilla on Saturday 22ndMarch. Clon played with the strong wind in the first half and more than held their own against a very useful Val’s outfit. Again Martina O’Brien showed her class in goal while the backs as a unit were outstanding, epitomised by captain Carol Ann O’Donovan and Jenny Quinn who caused a lot of problems for the St Val’s defence when moved to the forward line in the second half. A fine goal taken with aplomb by Anna O’Hea and a nice point by young Ciara Ryan left the half time score... Val’s 1-06 Clon 1-03. Clon were under pressure for a lot of the second half but never left the heads drop. This was an encouraging performance by Clon and bodes well for the future. Final Score: St Val’s 1-15 Clon 1-04. Panel: Martina O’Brien, Aoife O’Neill, Jenny Quinn (0-01), Rebecca McAree, Niamh Deasy, Sinead O’Neill, Susie Forristal, Claire O’Leary, Lydia Kenny (0-01), Louise Collins, Juanita Brennan (0-01, free), Rosemary Dullea, Maura O’Brien, Anna O’Hea (1-00), Caroline Dullea, Aileen McCarthy, Ciara Ryan (0-01), Carol Ann O’Donovan, Aine O’Leary, Ellen Hayes.
Clonakilty Senior Ladies travelled to Mourneabbey on Friday March 14th to take on the locals in the first league game of the season. Clon played with the aid of a strong breeze in the first half and despite a lack of serious pre season training put in a fine performance on the night. Some fine free taking by Juanita Brennan and a cracking goal from Jenny Quinn had Clon 2 points ahead coming up to half time. But a Mourneabbey goal just before the break had Clon trailing 1-06 to 1-05 at the short whistle. Special mention to the 6 Clon backs who formed a very tight unit especially in the first half and of course Cork goalkeeper Martina O’Brien who pulled off some fine saves throughout the match. Clon battled very well in the second half thanks to the hard working Beulah McManus and Aine O’Leary. Points from Beulah McManus, Maura O’Brien and Grace McManus meant Clon trailed by only 5 points 2-11 to 1-09 with 9 minutes remaining. But they tired late on and with no substitutes to bring on, eventually lost on a scoreline of 2-16 to 1-09. Team: Martina O’Brien, Aoife O’Neill, Carol Ann O’Donovan, Rebecca McAree, Niamh Deasy, Sinead O’Neill, Susie Forristal, Claire O’Leary, Beulah McManus (0-01), Louise Collins, Aine O’Leary, Juanita Brennan (0-04) 0-02 frees, Maura O’Brien (0-01), Jenny Quinn (1-02), Grace McManus (0-01).

Clon found the net three times in the first 10 minutes courtesy of Jamie O’Regan, Lydia Kenny and Niamh O’Donovan.
