Rathcline Club Notes 5th June 2017

Division 2

For all that attended the local derby game against Killashee in Division 2 on Friday night last, they missed what was and most probably the highest scoring game played or will be played in Clonbonny for a long long time. When referee Michael O’Brien blew the final whistle, the final whistle read Rathcline 4-11 Killashee 4-11. As you can imagine from this this scoreline that this game was nonstop from start to finish and after seeing 30 scores in the hour it was value for money.


Monday night last 29th May the 50/50 took place in the Yacht Bar. The winning pool amounted to €380 and the winner was Paddy Donlon, Derryshanogue. The club would like to congratulate Paddy on his win, thank him for his support and we would like to thank everyone else for their continued support.

Tickets are on sale locally at €2 each and your support will be greatly appreciated. Alternatively, you can by the pink ticket for the year for just €100 and have 2 free weeks

U-10 Blitz

Our U-10 team had a two-team blitz in Clonbonny with Killashee last week and it proved to be a great occasion with all players on both sides getting playing time and it was a fascinating sight with so many youngsters enjoying themselves.

This Wednesday our U-10 panel will play another blitz, this time in Killashee where Grattan Gaels, Ballymore Shamrocks, Southern Gaels and Shannon Gaels at 7.00pm.

Our U-12 panel will travel to Carrick on Shannon for their first game in the Longford Leitrim Cross Border League where they will play St. Mary’s- Kiltoghert at 7.30pm


The entire club would like to wish all our players the very best for the Leaving and Junior Certificate that starts this Wednesday.
