Clontibret 1-09 Kilco 0-11 By JOHN GRAHAM Clontibret overcame all the odds to book their place in the quarter-final of the Ulster Club Senior Football Championship when they struck for an injury time goal to snatch a late dramatic victory over Down champions Kilcoo in Pairc Esler, Newry, on Sunday afternoon last. They overcame in particular the handicap of having to play three quarters of the game with 14 players after Paul McGuigan was sent off in the 13th minute of the first half but they compensated for that numerical disadvantage with an ...

Ulster Camogie Junior Club Championship Final Clontibret     1-12 Laragh      2-04 By MARETTA SHERRY On a Sunday to remember for Clontibret, their camogs defeated Laragh of Cavan to retain the Ulster Junior Club Championship title in Moy last Sunday. Both clubs had reached this final on merit: Clontibret disposing of Kilcoo and Carrickmore quite comfortably, with Laragh knocking out Glenullion (Derry) and last year’s beaten finalists, Antrim’s Loughgiel. A blustery gale made conditions difficult but it was Clontibret’s physical power and skill that came to the fore, as they who ...

Clontibret stole the headlines on the double last week as the Ulster Club championships moved up a gear for Monaghan’s representatives. by COLM SHALVEY Last Sunday will live long in the memory of Clontibret fans, after two of their senior teams won Ulster Club Championship games. The dust had barely settled on Clontibret’s Monaghan Senior Football Championship win, but they took another major step forward when they once again stunned a fancied team and the bookies. Clontibret had been outsiders in the county final against Scotstown and it was a similar story in the ...

SCOTSTOWN CHAMPIONS

Scotstown 2-16 Clontibret 0-07 BY JOHN GRAHAM SCOTSTOWN may have waited 20 years to regain the senior football championship title but few would have thought that they would have such an easy passage to the title as they enjoyed in Clones on Sunday last against a Clontibret team that just simply failed to function on the day. Scotstown in this year’s championship campaign had beaten the last four championship title winners so they were well poised to strike for victory. The Scotstown line out in the official programme was but a shadow of how the ...

SCOTSTOWN VETERAN MCKENNA HAS HOPES FOR ULSTER

“There was a lot of lads still hurting from losing out in 2011. I think that hurt was still very raw and they didn’t want to lose another county final.” So stated Scotstown true blue Niall McKenna this week as he reflected on his club’s stunning SFC final victory (2-16 to 0-7) last Sunday over Clontibret. McKenna was captain of the Scotstown team that similarily worked the oracle in 1993. Conventional wisdom at that time had it (after also beating the O’Neills) that the Mick Duffy Cup would winter in McKenna’s home ...

CLONTIBRET COLLECT NEEDED POINTS

BY COLM SHALVEY Clontibret 1-09 Doohamlet 1-02 CLONTIBRET returned to winning ways in the Drumlin Group of Credit Unions Senior Football League when they proved too strong for parish rivals Doohamlet at home last Sunday. Clontibret went in on the back of three straight defeats, while Doohamlet were in confident form after beating Ballybay the previous Wednesday, but that mattered little as the hosts ran out comfortable winners. Clontibret, who brought John Paul and Dessie Mone back in but were without the suspended Fergal Mone, could afford to kick ten wides and still have seven ...

CASTLEBLAYNEY CLINCH IT AS HOMESTERS CLONTIBRET FALL TO LATE STRIKES BY MALONE AND MCELROY

Clontibret 012 Castleblayney 0-14 BY COLM SHALVEY CASTLEBLAYNEY got their first points of this year’s SFL with a hard-earned win away to Clontibret last Sunday. The teams were level five times in an entertaining first half and they were never separated by more than four points, but Blayney’s greater need for league points told in their favour. Blayney, who were again well short of full-strength, had good performances from Martin McElroy, Ciarán Hanratty, Dermot Malone and Mark Treanor, while Clontibret, who were still without Dessie Mone and Paul McGuigan, were over-reliant on Conor McManus, who ...

M’CLOONE 2-15 CLONTIBRET 0-19 BY JOHN GRAHAM MAGHERACLOONE are still in with the chance of taking some silverware for the year after they staged a late smash and grab act in O’Neill Park, Clontibret on Sunday last to heap further disappointment on Clontibret when they denied them a place in the final of the senior football league. Clontibret had already suffered the huge disappointment of losing the final of the senior football championship but for long periods on Sunday last they looked as if they would get some measure of compensation for that ...
