In the first match Callum Tyrell and Mathew Jordan stood out in defence while John McGinn caped a good performance with a fine point. In the second match, where Clontarf were always on top, Mark Winters and Jonathan Orange played very well, and Conor Dennis was the most improved player.
Red group took on Vincents away in the 3-team league. In three well contested matches, Clontarf achieved one win and two losses - ending up behind 49-46 overall. Danial O'Sullivan and Luke Hempenstall played well throughout and each scored one outstanding point. However the Clontarf defence did not mark up and were often second to the ball. In the second match, Cian O'Brien while Alex Cooke and Eoin Donnolly worked tirelessly in midfield. Playing against a strong breese, the team were behind by 5 at half time. However they scored a goal and four unanswered points in the second half to get the win. Kevin McElhinney got most of the scores. In the third match, Conn Breathnacht and Sam Kelly played very well, and Timmy Sweeney was man of the match.
