St. Clare’s were 6 up at half time but Scoil Mhuire closed the gap to just one point at the start of the second half. St. Clare’s dug deep and took complete control of the game which seen the Strokestown side go 20 minutes without a score. St. Clare’s 9-9 Scoil Mhuire 2-11.

Under 14 Ladies GAA
Well done to our U14 girls Gaelic team who won 3 out of their 4 group games, beating Ballinamore, Mohill and Drumkeerin. They were very unlucky not to qualify for the next round having lost just one game. A special mention for the two TYs who were on the sideline to help and support the girls.

Under 17 Girls Soccer
Well done to the U17 girls soccer team who have reached the Connaught semi final. They had a convincing win against Foxford, beating them 7-5 and will play Louisburgh on Monday 10th December in the hopes of reaching the Final. Well done to all involved.

First Year Futsal
Well done to the first year girls who progressed to the Connaught Futsal Finals in Sligo IT. Unfortunately competition proved too strong for them on the day. Thank you to Mairéad Clancy and Leah Fox for all the hard work they have put in with the girls since September.

Boys GAA


St Clare’s 5-9, Roscommon CC 0-4
The juvenile boys had a great win over Roscommon CC last Thursday at home in Boggaun. St Clare’s really dominated proceedings across the 60 minutes although Roscommon mainly through their half backs endeavours did cause problems.
The score line did not reflect the game as the Roscommon side accumulated 8 wides across the game. Best for St Clare’s was Sean Sheridan on kick outs, Barry McNulty, in midfield, Tom Hughes at number 3 and Tarach O Snodaigh showed great energy up front. The captain Dylan Gilligan also gave a real leader’s display in midfield. That concludes the group stages with 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss.
The juniors await their third fixture vs Coola. The seniors await their championship opposition with a preliminary round to be played.
