GO RAIBH MAITH AGAIBH!

Many thanks and well done to Dermot and his team at the BBQ who literally cooked thousands of burgers and bacon butties over the Féile weekend; to Goretta, Noleen, Shane, Sarah and team who served thousands of cups of tea/coffee/sandwiches/cold drinks/ice pops etc, to Attracta and team who sold a thousand ice creams; our stewards/volunteers who ‘controlled’ thousands of people/cars/buses, etc; those who made thousands of sandwiches; our volunteers on pitch and security duties; bar staff; those who kept replenishing stocks wherever needed; PJ and his team of All Ireland raffle ticket sellers; Shane and Damien our Pitch coordinators and their helpers/runners; and then there was Paudie and Anita in the ‘Control Centre’ Paudie kept it all running smoothly and Anita relayed the results to Féile HQ. There were lots of people who supplied equipment for the weekend and the run-up - walkie-talkies, the retro scoreboard for the top pitch, tractors, diggers, man power, ‘elbow grease’ etc, etc. Our own U14 players who gave us a lot to cheer about - and their families - those who hosted the boys and girls from Laune Rangers and New York Ladies, provided transport and/or cooking skills, stewarding, pre and post clean up - you were all absolutely amazing! If we’ve omitted someone we apologise in advance and do let us know - it’s hard to get our brains into normal gear again. 
A big thank you to National Féile Committee for giving us the opportunity of demonstrating to the whole country just what a great club/community we are! Clonduff hosted Div 1 quarter finals on Saturday afternoon and Div 5 and 9 Semi Finals and Finals on Sunday - we had teams from New York, Scotland Kerry, Derry, Leitrim, Kildare, Meath, Sligo, Longford, Cork, Fermanagh, Louth, Laois, Dublin, Waterford and of course Down playing in Clonduff Park over the weekend. Everybody was well fed and watered and hopefully, having won or lost they have taken away great memories of Féile 2018 in Clonduff Park!

This image from Clonduff Park on Féile Sunday sums up the Spirit of Féile - a young lad from Graiguecullen GAA (Laois) helps an injured player from Ballinderry (Derry) off the field just after Ballinderry had defeated his team in the Div 5 semi final

 

Our Féile Visitors !

The New York Girls arrived in Carrickdale Hotel (Wednesday); The Laune Rangers Boys left Killorglin Thursday afternoon and stayed overnight in Dublin before making their way to Co Down on Friday. 
Both visiting teams went directly to their two first games in St Mary's Burren - Clonduff teams also played two games in Burren on Friday evening. Hosts and visitors had the privilege of playing each other in Clonduff Park on Saturday morning. All f
our teams returned from Burren to Clonduff Club on Friday evening for light supper and to 'Meet and Greet' their host families. 
The weather was reminiscent of New York weather at this time of the year! By all accounts they had a thoroughly enjoyable experience! Laune Rangers reached the semi finals of the Div 1 Shield whilst the New York girls reached the Div 2 Cup Final

 

Clonduff Boys and Girls are Ready for Féile 2018

 

Both teams are sporting the new sponsored playing jerseys (Girls - Gilmores Garage; Boys - Enviroform) and other great gear - National Féile is not in our calendar every year! The boys reached Div 1 Shield Final where they were defeated by Claregalway which had been founded by Clonduff and Down Great - Patsy O'Hagan (Bittersweet!) The girls were controversially beaten in the quarter finals by a single point when what looked like a perfectly good goal was disallowed.

 

GREAT PERFORMANCE FROM ST PATRICK’S GIRLS BUT NO JOY

Maybe it was nerves but the girls in the school’s first ever Football Final could not get to grips with the physically bigger and more experienced Carrick (Burren) girls in the first half. They went in trailing 0-6 to 0-1 at half time. They came out a different team in the blistering sun in Burren on Wednesday morning (27th June) and held the Home side scoreless with some fantastic heroics at the back particularly goalkeeper Niamh McGivern. However it just wasn’t to be their day and Burren took the honours on a score of 0-6 to 0-5. Well done all and to your school and club mentors.

PEARCE BRANAGAN RIP


It was with deep sadness and a sense of shock and devastation that, just as we completed the day's work in 'The Big Clean-up' for Féile Peile 2018 on Saturday 23rd June, the  awful news broke of the sudden and very untimely death of young Pearce Branagan one of our Senior Hurlers who was also a Juvenile Hurling Coach and Referee. Pearce aged just 23 passed away after suffering a cardiac seizure on Saturday evening at the home of his girlfriend Ellen McCrilly. He had just begun his teaching career in St Malachy's PS Kilcoo. He was born with a heart defet but didn't want that to define who he was. In May he ran a leg of the Belfast Marathon Relay for The Heartbeat Trust. He was laid to rest in St John's Cemetery following Requiem Mass on Thursday 28th June.

In 2007 Pearce was one of ten Clonduff dual players who won B titles in Down Féile Peile and Féile na nGael. The Hurlers went to the All Ireland series in Kilkenny and the Footballers went to the Ulster series in Cavan the previous week where they annexed the Ulster title in their grade. Just a few weeks before his passing Pearce played on the Clonduff Down Feis 7s winning team along with his brother Lorcan who is a senior dual player in Clonduff Club

Pearce is the second son of Tony and Terri (8 Ballycashone Road), younger brother of Padraig and older brother of Lorcan and Caitlin. To them, his girlfriend Ellen McCrilly (Moy), a wide family circle and his team mates and his pupils in St Malachy's we tender our deepest sympathy. May his gentle soul rest in peace. Mary Queen of the Gael Pray for him and his family. Ár dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

 

THE BIG CLEAN-UP - What a response and what a result!!

Many thanks to the army of volunteers - men, women and children who arrived with tractors, diggers, strimmers, hedgecutters, mowers, power washers, etc or just their rubber gloves - to carry out the major cleanup operation on Clonduff Club premises Friday evening and all day Saturday in preparation for Féile Peile na nÓg 2018! It was a great community effort and there was wonderful camaraderie among the many volunteers. The constant supply of tea/coffee/juice/water went down a treat on such a warm day as did the sandwiches and ice cream!

Even the Chairman got stuck in!
