Corn na Tuaithe Final
Clogh/Moneenroe 2-4 Kilmanagh 0-1
Clogh/Moneenroe captured the 2016 Country Cup with a well-deserved victory over a strong Kilmanagh side, which was played under lights in Danesfort on Tuesday evening. The final was due to have been last week but was postponed due to bad weather however the conditions weren’t much better on Tuesday as both teams were met with wind and rain as they did their warm up.
Both teams started well and played some good football considering the conditions, scores though were very hard to come by and it wasn’t until the 14th minute that the first flag was raised which was a Clogh/Moneenroe goal from the boot of Dara Brennan. The goal really settled his side down and they started getting on top all over the field. Clogh/Moneenroe scored a further goal and point through Jonah Kelly to go in at the break 2-1 to 0-0 to the good. Clogh/Moneenroe were well worth their half time lead and had they had a little bit more luck on their side could have been further ahead.
Clogh/Moneenroe started the second half in the same fashion as they finished the first and although scores were hard to come by, they were on top throughout. Some great goal keeping from Charlie Cleere in the Kilmanagh goals kept Clogh/Moneenroe at bay but two points from Jonah Kelly and a long-range effort from Shane Buggy kept the scoreboard ticking over in Clogh/Moneenroe’s favour. Kilmanagh to their credit kept fighting to the end and finally got on the scoresheet when Eoin Egan pointed. Kilmanagh did have two goal chances late on but Luke Flanagan was on hand on both occasions to clear the danger. There were scenes of great joy at the end as joint captains Harry Roche and Luke Flanagan became the first two players to lifted the Country Cup for Clogh/Moneenroe. It was a great team performance from Clogh/Moneenroe who overcame the disappointment of the League final and never let their heads down. This team along with managers Mr. Lonergan and Mr. Butler put in a huge effort all through the year and finished the season with fifteen wins and just the one loss from their sixteen outings. The history makers were Luke Flanagan, Jack O’Neill, John Brennan, Shay Dunne, Malachy Flaherty, Shane Buggy, Francie Ward, Harry Roche, Adam Buggy, Daniel Farrell, Jake Denigan, Dominic Bolster, Chris Phelan, Dara Brennan, Jonah Kelly, Muireann Ryan, Darragh Dunne, Katelyn Farnan, Harry Lawlor, Conor Farnan, Liam Walsh, Eli Bolster, Rebecca Mealy, James O’Neill, Katelyn Kelly, Katie Brennan and Caoimhe Mooney.
Schools Football: League Final
Clogh/Moneenroe 0-5 Bennettsbridge 1-4
Clogh/Moneenroe fell at the final hurdle in their bid to win the 2016 League when they were narrowly beaten by a physical Bennettsbridge team. Clogh/Moneenroe started well and were 0-4 to 0-0 up after just 8 minutes with 3 point from Jonah Kelly and one from Adam Buggy had things looking good.
Bennettsbridge finally got on the scoresheet on 13 minutes from a free. They were level on 22 minutes when they scored the only goal of the game. Jonah Kelly restored the lead on 23 min with another fine point. Remarkably this was to be the last score of the game for Clogh/Moneenroe. Bennettsbridge level matters before half time to leave the scores 0-5 to 1-2 at the break.
Scores were hard to come by in the 2nd period with both defences on top. It wasn’t to be however for Clogh/Moneenroe and two late pointed frees from Bennettsbridge in the 23rd and 24th minute of the 2nd half were the difference. Clogh/Moneenroe had plenty of chances in the second half to secure victory but it wasn’t to be. Every one of the players should hold their heads high as they are a credit not only to their families but the Clogh/Moneenroe community in general. Well done also to Mr. Lonergan and Mr. Butler. Team Luke Flanagan, Jack O’Neill, John Brennan, Shay Dunne, Malachy Flaherty, Shane Buggy, Francie Ward, Harry Roche, Adam Buggy, Jake Denigan, Dominic Bolster, Chris Phelan, Dara Brennan, Jonah Kelly, Miran Ryan, Darragh Dunne, Katelyn Farnan, Harry Lawlor, Conor Farnan, Liam Walsh, Eli Bolster, Rebecca Mealy, James O’Neill, Katelyn Kelly, Katie Brennan and Caoimhe Mooney.
It is not all doom and gloom as Clogh/Moneenroe still have the country cup final to look forward to
North Kilkenny Final on Saturday 21st November at 2pm in The Prince Ground Castlecomer. They only went and won it!! Unbelievable match, very hard fought against a very tough Conahy team.
