ALL SPORT - Sport dominated the parish over the past week with everybody’s mind focussed on Sunday’s All Ireland senior hurling final. This was in evidence with so many premises being adorned in the black and amber colours. The tension will have to continue for a further three weeks as a result of the match ending in a draw which now necessitates a replay on Sunday 30th September.
FAMILY FUN DAY - The family fun day in Clogh saw the crowds come out in brilliant sunshine to witness and participate in the wid range of activities. Saturday saw the under 10 hurling blitz in the Cloneen club and also saw a big turnout to see off the nearly 100 cyclists on their annual charity run to Croke Park.The street was packed with well wishers and cyclists as they enjoyed breakfast in Ryan’s pub as well as traditional dancing and set dancing. Cloneen Hurling Club hosted a hard fought Junior Championship game between Erins Own and St. Martins which was won by the former. As is normal at this time of year, there was the usual wealth of activity on the handball scene with a number of local players chasing national honours. Railyard ladies regained the counyy title with a good win over The Village in Ballycomey.
