||IFC Quarter Final: Ballinabranna 0-9 Clonmore 0-6
Clonmore's Championship hopes ended today after a wholehearted display came up just short.
Substitute Dylan Doyle scored a great point on 53 minutes to leave the minimum between the teams - 0-7 to 0-6 - and while Clonmore had chances to equalise, B'branna finished the stronger to win by 3.
Clonmore played some great football at times and our young players gained valuable Championship experience this year which should stand to them in 2021.
||IFC: Kildavin/Clonegal 2-12 Clonmore 0-3
Having already qualified for the Quarter Finals, our Intermediates struggled to lift themselves for this game which only served to decide placings in the Group.
This result means we play Ballinabranna in the Quarter Final at 1.30pm on Sunday next, 27 September, in Netwatch Cullen Park.
Tickets will be available to buy on-line at gaa.tickets.ie
||Junior 'C' Championship: Eire of 2-6 Clonmore 5-18
The Juniors put up another big score away to Eire Óg in the Championship tonight to record a rare enough win against the aristocrats of Carlow footbal in their home ground.
With ten different scorers, this team is shaping up well and have now qualified for the Quarter Finals at least.
The winners of our game away to Palatine next Wednesday will top the Group and go straight through to the Semi-Finals. Pal drew 0-8 apiece with L''bridge tonight.
||Minor Championship Division Two Final: Clonmore 2-14 Asca 3-3.
Clonmore Minors reversed a 7-5 to 0-10 defeat to Asca in August to win this Final with a brilliant spirited display.
While Oisín Doyle, Adam Deay, Adam Smith, Aaron Kelly and Ciaran Mooney were the stand-out players, this victory was based on a huge effort by all 16 players who played on the night, especially the six backs who defended magnificently against much bigger & stronger opponents
Congratulations to all players and Mentors concerned..
||IFC Clonmore 0-11 Fighting Cocks 0-10
The Intermediates had to battle all the way to eek out a narrow win in what has become our annual dogfight with the Fighting Cocks.
Having played against the wind in the first half, we found ourselves losing by 0-7 to 0-4 at HT. The lads raised their game in the 2nd half but still needed a point from Robert Bulmer at least 10 mins into injury time to win the game.
Next up: Kildavin/ Clonegal on Sunday, 20 September, at 3.30pm in Bro Leo Park, Tullow.
||Junior C Championship: Clonmore 5-17 Leighlinbridge 0-5
The Juniors led from pillar to post in this lively Championship encounter in Woodside on Wednesday evening.
Clonmore look to have a lively young squad but sterner tests lie ahead – starting with Eire Óg in Páirc Uí Briain on Wednesday next at 7.30pm.
