Clonduff Minor Footballers into All County A Final for first time since 1995. They beat Kilcoo in Warrenpoint on Tuesday night on scoreline of 3-14 to 0-15 to set up Final on 1st October v Burren who beat Liatroim.


It was one of the wettest afternoons of the year but they put on a storming performance in the first half and led 2-5 to 0-3 at half time. Then it was literally backs-to-the-wall stuff in the second half - Ballygalet were storming the Clonduff half but the backs were strong - it was 19 mins before The Yellas scored in the second half by which time Ballygalget had closed the gap to 3 points. They finished strongly, scoring the last two points to leave final score 2-8 to 0-9.
U10 Players from both clubs formed a Guard of Honour when the teams were emerging from the dressing rooms; U12s from both clubs played an exhibition game at half time. Clonduff's Vivienne Mulcahy, the reigning Scór Sinsir County Champion had got proceedings underway with Amhrán na bhFiann.

Team: Kitty Fegan, Orla Morgan, Jenna Boden, Nicola O'Hagan, Orlagh Caldwell, Fionnuala Carr, Clare McGilligan, Cassie Fitzpatrick, Paula Gribben, Sara Louise Carr, Clara Cowan, Karen Haughey, Megan O'Reilly, Katie McGilligan, Orla Gribben; Subs used: Beth Fitzpatrick; Lizzie Wilson,; Other panellists who help get the team to this stage: Hannah McAteer, Joanne Killen Niohmi Murray, Martina Rooney, Molly Brown, Roisin Mulholland, Shannon O'Hagan, Petrina Lively, Cara Boden, Ally Magee; Management Team: Damien Farnon, John Crossey



Many congratulations to our former Ladies Gaelic player Clodagh Nugent (above right) who set a personal best time representing Ireland in the International Triathlon Union series in the 25-29 age group in Rotterdam on Sunday 17th September 2017. She only took up Triathlon two years ago and this was her first International Event - she enjoyed every minute of it and completed all three stages with a big smile on her face! Well done Clodagh!

Clodagh played Ladies Gaelic Football for Clonduff from U12 right up to senior level and won a County Senior Championship with Clonduff in 2008.
For the past four years Clodagh and Fiancé Michael Graham (Hilltown) have been residing in Moscow where she is teaching PE in the International School. Michael is in primary school, teaching the equivalent of P5.



Well done to Colin Shields (Clonduff) who defeated Sean McNally (Rostrevor, but plays out of Clonduff) in a tie breaker to take the Down One Wall Intermediate title for 2017.



Clonduff 1-11 Ballela 0-14 - THEY NEED TO DO IT ALL AGAIN!
This was a fabulous game of hurling to watch IF YOU WERE A NEUTRAL otherwise bad for the heart!
The first half was fast moving and skilful with Clonduff going in at half time leading 1-7 to 0-8 - the goal coming off the stick of Lorcan Branagan. 
The Heavens opened at half time and continued for most of the rest of the game making for mistakes and poor finishing. Clonduff were playing into the driving rain at this stage. They were awarded a penalty which resulted in a point after the keeper got his stick to it. With two minutes remaining Clonduff were a point ahead - Ballela pointed a free to level up. Clonduff made one more foray up the field but after it broke down a free out was awarded and then the final whistle blew.
Replay likely to be in two weeks' time.
Team and scorers: Niall Quinn, Sean Downey, Danny Nugent (joint capt), Declan Rooney, Darragh Downey, John Murphy, Shay Murnin (0-1), Shane Murray (joint capt) (0-1), Jamie Lynch, Christopher Young (0-3), Fionnbharr Murphy, Patrick Branagan, Lorcan Branagan (1-0), Rian Branagan (0-6), Christopher Hynes; Sus used: Mark Downey; Other subs: Jamie Lowry, Pearce Branagan, Shay McPolin, Gerard Coughlin, Martin Rooney, Christopher Lynch, Rhys Ward, Paul Bloomfield, Liam McParlan



Many congratulations to Down Captain and Clonduff mainstay defender who voted (by the readers) as Irish News GAA All Star left corner back 2017 following Down's exploits in the Ulster Championship, reaching the final. Darren was presented with his award at a Gala Dinner in Armagh City Hotel on Thursday 7th September. He was joined by fellow Down players Kilcoo's Darragh O'Hanlon (LHB) and Glasdrumman's Connaire Harrison (full forward).
Darren is only the second Clonduff man to win an Irish News All Star Award - Ross Carr, who was in the audience for Darren's award, received the RHF spot in 1998




On Sunday 20th August 2017 Clonduff All Ireland winning Ballad Group entertained at half time in the MFC game and then at the Fanzone area in front of Croke Park as the Mayo and Kerry Supporters were arriving - what great ambassadors this group has been for Scór, for Clonduff, Down, Ulster and their families. They got to see the best game of the year! Well done Paul, Agnes, Caroline, Colleen and Martina!
