A team had a good league win V St. Brigids
Under 14 Football:
Result. Clontarf 11-17 Whitehall 2-5
This was an outstanding performance by Clontarf in their first competitive match after the summer break. It was clear that the team has benefited hugely from their Feile experience, Frankie Byrne's training sessions and the School of Excellence in August. Everyone one of the panel of 25 made a contribution to the win with the high level of performance sustained upto the last minute of the game. Goals were contributed by Sean McCullough, Oisin Mulligan, Evan Finnegan, Ross McCullough, Bernard Sweeney, Daniel Russell and Kevin Mullins with a string of excellent points by Thomas Craddock, Mark White and James Doyle. The team can take great heart from this result which will hopefully launch the push for promotion to Division 1 next year.

Under 11 Hurling:
Well done to the lads on 2 fine league wins V Cuala. Star performances on this ocassion from every player.
Under 10 Hurling:
U10s paid a visit to Scoil Ui Chonaill but unfortunately, did not manage to come home with any success. Our A team played well but Scoil had the edge and put more scores over the bar to win by 16 points to 4. Our B team stayed closer, but were beaten by some excellent goalkeeping and a strong surge in the second half by Scoil. The score line of 9 to 5 was inflated by some dubious skill points, but Scoil would still have run out victors.
Under 9 Hurling:
A tough start to the league for the under-nines against Naomh Barrog. clontarf Red team bravely battled against a physically strong Barrog A team. Best score from our lads was a clever batdown goal from Gavin Murray.
The Blues were cruising at half-time through scrores from Eoin Gahan (a fine effort f rom a a sideline cut) and from Stephen Evans and Luke O'Malley (2), but were pipped at the post by a good fightback by the home side,.
The greens lost by a one-point margin in a fiercely contested game. Great work from new boys Mark Winters and Jordan Broy (who also scored) and from Eoin donnolly. Great poacher goals from Conor ryan.
Much work to be done, but great progress being made, with thanks for John Troy for running the rule over the lads.
Under 8 Hurling:
A historic day for these boys, making their debut in CCC1 competition. Clontarf fielded 30 players in several games against Whitehall and the overall result was a draw. Well done to all involved.

U10’s. We started back after the summer break with a call for Mums to take up a challenge from their daughters for a 'Friendly'. While the numbers actually togging out was low, the enthusiasm was high and the Referee had to intervene on more than one occasion to remind the adults that this was Ladies football. Some fathers and even a couple of sons, became honorary Mums for the game. So many girls turned up that we had to have a mini blitz with the Mums playing three groups of girls. The final was an 'all in' event with 27 girls playing against a dozen parents. The girls won (eventually) and great fun was had by all. Particular praise to Bernie, Denise, Nora and Anne. Thankfully Dr Jim was not needed (other than as goalie for the Mums' team).
The County Board has set the U10 Girls fixtures from now until the October holiday weekend and these will be on the website shortly.
