KILMACUD SEVENS 2010

On Saturday 18th September 2010 Clonduff returned to Kilmacud to defend their All Ireland Sevens title – unfortunately it didn’t work out! However, history was made in their first game when they encountered Claregalway, a football club originally founded by former Clonduff great, Patsy O’Hagan. The two teams are pictured above following their game. The Claregalway team was managed by Patsy’s son, Brendan (2nd from left back row). The Clonduff players were (standing) John Fegan, Conor óg O’Hagan, John McPolin, Shane Ward, Kieran Trainor; (kneeling) Finbarr McConville, Paul McPolin, Gary McDonald, Paul McConville and Shane McGreevy.
Clonduff were in the unique position of fielding a second team in the All Ireland Sevens due to the late withdrawal of another team. They grabbed the opportunity with both hands and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The second team panel was: Gary Haughian, Rory Grant, Mark McPolin, Arthur McConville, Patrick McGreevy, Bernard Branagan, Henry Brown, Tony McGreevy and Cathal Maginn.
