New York 7’s
14 members of our intermediate camogie panel, along with management and supporters, will board a plane bound for the Big Apple on Friday morning. Thanks to Trisha Hogan, Liberty Gaels New York have extended the MacDonaghs an invitation to their 7-a-side tournament which will be held in Gaelic Park on Saturday. We wish both girls and management a safe trip and every success as they face northern opponents Ruairí Óg Cushendall and hosts Liberty Gaels.
Jersey Launch and U13 Presentation
Sunday evening saw a packed Club House in Cloughjordan as our new jerseys were revealed and the U13 girls revceived with their league medals. After a warm welcome from our Chairperson, Anne-Marie O’Meara, U13 manager Liam O’Kelly addressed those present by reminiscing on the year’s success and commending each of the girls individually, before Laura Shinners presented the silverware. An enjoyable evening was topped off with a draw where club members Lisa Cahill and Claudia Deane each won a new jersey, followed by a cupán tae agus ceaparaí. Thanks to all who attended.
Community Games Handball
Our latest All-Ireland champion is Lucy Gould who won the Community Games U13 one wall All-Ireland finals held in UL at the weekend. Lucy beat Orlaith Shanahan from Limerick in the quarter-final, Shona Kennedy from Roscommon in the semi-final and held her nerve to overcome Ellie O’Malley from Mayo in the final.
