Under 12 Hurling:
U12 hurlers put in another great performance in Div 1, going down 4-2,2-1 to southside kingpins Kilmacud Crokes. Kevin Mangan was man of the match and Bill Perryman was brilliant in goal.
Under 11:
A huge well done to all three U11 hurling teams who recorded great home wins against O'Dwyers and Vincents on Saturday at a very windy St. Pauls.
Noel's team got the day off to a great start by recording a fine 18 4 win against O'Dwyers. The game was delicately poised at half time but Clontarf really made the elements count in the second half. This was a great tem effort but special mention must go to Gavin Jackson, Sean Kelly and Darragh Ring for leading by example throughout.
Donal's team had a super 13 4 victory against St. Vincents. This was a fabously committed display from all with Liam Howley, Sean O'Flaherty and Sean Mc Keown outstanding.
The A team recorded a 17 11 win against the Marino outfit also. The quality of hurling on display in very testing conditions was superb. A great team performance but special mention for Harry Opperman who gave an outstanding display of defensive hurling along with our other defensive stalwarts Jack Higgins, Diarmuid Brodie and Eoin MacNamee.
Under 10's:
Cluain Tarbh 7  Whitehall Colmcille 23
Our A team were well beaten by a skilled Whitehall team, while our B team lost out by a much closer margin.  We are still behind some of the stronger clubs in confidence and skill but are making great strides in catching up.  We need to work on the confidence and also, to organise some friendly matches, to give the lads some much needed game time.
