Double Success for Clanna Gael Minor Boys

2021 has been a fantastic year for Clans Minor Boys winning both their Minor Football and Hurling championships over the past few weeks. While boys, girls, mens and ladies teams across many age groups had strong performances this year, the standout has been the double success of the Minor boys.

On Sunday 14th November, the Minors lined out against Parnells in the Minor D football championship final. Having delivered a stunning two-point win against Na Fianna in a nail-biting extra time semi-final, Clans hosted Parnells at home and the boys did not disappoint. They delivered a comprehensive six-point win to clinch the Championship title.

Following on from this success, Clanns Minors saw off a strong St Vincent’s team in the hurling championship semi-final some weeks ago to face Kevin’s at Sean Moore Park for a thrilling Minor D Hurling Championship Final on Sunday 21st. On what was a glorious Sunday morning, the boys led well at half time but saw off a resurgence by Kevin’s to clinch the title by two points. While reaching a final two years ago, Clanns Minors have not succeeded in winning a hurling championship in many years and Sunday was a proud day for the players, coaches and the club.

U13 Girls Achieve Success in First Campaign

Having missed the whole U12 Go Games season due to the pandemic, the U13 girls went straight into their first proper campaign competing in both the League and Cup this year. The squad is large enough to field three teams across three divisions, so it was a busy year for both players and coaches. A very successful summer saw the girls win the Division 1 and Division 9 League titles which was a super achievement given the quality of opposition they met along the way.

The Cup competition ran throughout the Autumn and threw up some fantastic games, ‘late come-backs’ and narrow wins and narrow losses! The Division 1 team topped their table with an unbeaten run but fell to Kilmacud Crokes by a point in a nail-biting semi-final. The Division 4 team reached the Shield Final and beat Ballyboden by a point with a late goal in a very entertaining and tight game. Meanwhile, on the same day having reached the Division 8 Cup Final unbeaten our girls lost out to Castleknock in another very tight game.

What a year for the U13 girls! There was the lockdown, fitness challenges, match drama, wins, losses, tears and jubilation: but most of all there was lots of fun along the way and every player ends the year with at least one medal and a lot of good memories.
