Training times change this week until the summer break. Monday training at 18:30 to 19:30 on Pitch 21 next to Sybil Hill Friday training at 18:30 to 19:30 on Pitch 30 next to Rose Garden.

New Jerseys

As you will know we have three fabulous new sets of Clontarf jerseys for each of our squads kindly sponsored by Sherry Fitzgerald - anyone that saw them last Sunday will agree that they look great on the boys. When the weather is good we will arrange for a team photo before one of the matches that we can then provide to everyone.

Each of these sets are numbered team jerseys that will be provided on each match day for the boys - as we need to have these washed after each match we would ask parents if they could co operate and please assist us by taking a set of jerseys to wash - a mentor will arrange for this after every match - we will keep a record of this so that all parents have the opportunity to help out.

Thanks for your help on this.

Dear Parent,

We are organising a day trip to Tullamore to watch Dublin’s clash with Galway in the All Ireland Hurling Championship.

The trip will also take in a Hurling match against Birr GAA – martialled by the great Johnny Pilkington.

We will be travelling by a hired bus leaving on the morning of Sunday 28th May and returning to Dublin that evening.
Your son will need to

  1. Pay for a juvenile ticket and bus hire
  2. Have a packed lunch – no fizzy drinks
  3. A small amount of pocket money
  4. His hurling gear - make sure his name is on it
  5. We would ideally like to accommodate as many parents possible on the trip

Accordingly, can you please respond to the Teamer invite that has been circulated so that we can plan for numbers etc.

Sincerely,

Seán

Match Reports

Clontarf Bulls 3-1. Naomh Barrog 3-1.

The Bulls produced a display full of character and resolve to share the honours with a talented N.Barrog side at St. Anne's Park last Saturday morning. Their sense of determination was exemplified by Jamie O'K who was superb throughout the match in defence supported by Patrick F, Oisin D and Charlie M in midfield who was instrumental in turning ball over and gaining possession time and time again. The Bulls were rewarded early in the first half with a magnificent point from an acute angle by James G who nearly sent a point over from just inside his own half-way line a few minutes later. The midfield linked well with Patrick M, Arthur K and Sukphreet S up front who all played well throughout the match with great commitment. Patrick M and Cian O'M both had excellent games in goal clearing their lines without difficulty. This was a very competitive match with little between the sides. Determination, commitment and team work - it was all there from the Bulls. Jamie O'K was awarded MOTM for a great all round performance.

Naomh Barróg 2 Clontarf Panthers 4.7

The Panthers certainly showed their claws against NB this saturday. From the 1st whistle they set the pace that was to continue throughout the match. Two mins into the match, a sideline kick in from Philip, was promptly put into the net by Cillian B. Our mid line of Leo and Phillip didn't let up in feeding the forwards. Thanks to our solid defence line and their sheer determination NB had still to score at half time against 3 goals and 2 points for Clontarf. Karl in goals should of brought a book with him as only after the 14th min did he get his 1st touch of the sliothar. Seanan R saw more play in goals during the second half as NB tried to save face and managed to get 2 lucky goals. NB's fustration was showing as Donal Og was on the receiving end of of some brutish play but justice was served as he managed to put 2 into the back of the net. Some lovely high catches from Cillian and Leo. A well deserved victory for the Panthers at full time. Man of the match to Cilllian and Donal Og who both took on injures and fought for every ball.

Naomh Barróg 2.6 v Clontarf Lions 3.7 CT WIN

The last time these teams met CT were bossed off the pitch. However on a beautiful day some wonderful spirit from a fired up Lions team delivered a win. Tarf started into the sun and gave NB two soft points. We were still struggling to get scores and NB made the most of their early dominance with a goal and another point. CT then started the grind back earning two points from frees which were well taken by Tom Higgins. Sam Joyce also helped greatly in goal with some wonderful long puc outs to relieve the pressure. Our midfield started to assert themselves with Harry Duigan leading the way. At half time the boys were six points behind. The boys were asked to be even more committed and to use their ground hurling skills to avoid rucks developing. Defence was locked down with Finn Doran showing great skills to gather a fast ball under pressure and pass it long to a team mate in the wing. From this solid foundation, the boys started to express themselves and take goals and points with precision. A lovely example was Conal Murphy's point from a tight angle in play having bossed his man to win the ball in the first place. NB did not know what hit them and only secured one point in the whole of the second half. All in all a great game.

Mentors and Coaching

Coaching is done on a volunteer basis and the mentors do so as a way to contribute to the community of Clontarf and surrounding areas.

  • All coaches are parents of players and are members of the club.
  • Please be respectful of the coaching staff during our training sessions and match fixtures. 
  • Please arrive on time.  This makes our job a lot easier and in turn a more enjoyable experience for the kids.
  • We openly encourage parents to get involved, support and encourage all of the kids regardless of ability.
  • We would however ask that you and your child listen to and follow instructions given by the mentors.

If you are interested in Coaching? 

We need more help for the 2016 season. So if you are bored standing on the side line or if you feel that you can make a positive contribution please volunteer to get involved. It is a great way to spend time with your child and be part of the community.
We can do with all the help we can get and don’t worry it only looks like hardwork!


House Keeping

Upcoming weekend fixtures are typically send out by Teamer Alerts and posted to this web page on the Tuesday/Wednesday prior to our matches. But please check the website on Friday evenings in case there are any late changes / cancellations.  

It is important that we arrive on time to both home and away fixtures, so the players can warm up and hit the ground running when throw in comes.
