The young under 8 Clann’s attended a blitz in Greencastle on Saturday 18th April and had a great day out participating in four games.
The Club would like to thank everyone who helped and took great pride in representing the club. Pictured below.
UNDER 14 BOYS
The boys got back to winning ways on Saturday 18th April at Omagh st Enda`s
4:11 to 2:3. In goal Luke Conwell demonstrated great accuracy with kick outs.
Connor McElhinney, Ciaran Kerlin and Shane Biggs controlled the defense, while
Ronan McAleer and David Conway linked well in midfield. Nial O'Doherty and Matthew Houston led the forward line
and chipped in with good scores.
The minor boys played two games last week and had mixed fortunes wining one and losing one.
On Tuesday 14th April they were away to Omagh St Enda's and after a very tough encounter came away with the narrowest of victories, (5:5) (2:11).
On Friday 17th April they took on Cappagh but this time were on the wrong end of an one point game.
Despite dominating for long periods and scoring 12 points the lads traveled home on the wrong end of a (6:4) to (3:12) score
line. They play their final league game of the season on Tuesday 21st April against table toppers Tri leac c. Naoimh Mhic Artain
with the playoff position in the balance. We wish them well and will report on the game will follow next week.
The senior men continued their league campaign at home to Tattyreagh St Patrick's on Sunday 19th April and
continued their wining start to the season; although it took a free kick from Stephen O’Neil with the final kick of the game to give the Clann’s a narrow 1:10 to 1:09
The reserves after a comfortable victory against Drumquin last time out knew the game with Tattyreagh was going to be very different story.
Following a very entertaining game the Reserve team also maintained their one hundred percent record 2:14 to 1:15
with Paddy Conwell leading the way with a 7 point return and goals from Conor Harkin and Emmet Blee making the difference.
Senior ladies have their first league game on Friday 24th at 6.45pm in Strabane against Strabane.

Clann Na Ngael started their league campaign on Sunday 12th April with victory away at Drumquin Wolf Tones.
With a full squad to choose from it looked like it was going to be a comfortable away day as they raced into a nine point to one lead,
with points from Paul Gormley, Damien Ball, Stephen O Neil and goals from Kevin Farrell and Terence McGaughey, However Drumquin rallied and scored six points without reply has they dominated the rest of half. Clann Na Ngael struggled to win second ball and gave away to many free kicks and were punished.
The half time whistle gave the team a chance to regroup, and that they did.
Two quick free kicks from Damien Ball put three points between the teams as Drumquin lost discipline and picking up two yellow cards.
The first black card of the season resulted in Paul Gormley having to leave the field, soon after which Drumquin scored three quick points to bring the sides level.
As the game entered the last ten minutes Stephen O Neil linked up well with a young Tony Devine and the rest of the forward line.
Scores from Stephen O Neill, Damien Ball and Aaron Devine restored a three point lead; however the Drumquin men demonstrated great fighting spirit scoring two more points to make it a one point game going into added on time.
Manager Niall Barney Conway was very relieved to hear the final whistle as his team held on to record a 2:8 to 0:13 victory.
Clann Na Ngael Reserve still feeling sore from their Championship final defeat last season and could not wait for the season to start.
They came into this game in a very determined mood and came away with a comfortable victory. 5:10 to 1:5.
Catching the eye on the day were Joe Kerlin (2:0), Patrick Conwell (0:4), Brendan Conway (0:4) and Marc Henry (1:2).
On Monday 6th April the Clann Na nGael minor ladies continued their undefeated start to the season as they overcame a very ambitious Aghaloo team.
Under the captaincy of Shannon O'Neill the Clann girls came out in full force and with only a few minutes gone they secured the first goal with a great finish from Niamh Doherty who would finish the game scoring 2:1.
Aghaloo were not shy in responding as they harried to get a few great points on the board.
The Clann defence was extremely tight keeping Aghaloo goalless in the first half with Joanna McShane and Edel Houston breaking down many of Aghaloo attacks.
Proceeding into the second half Aghaloo were quickest out of the blocks scoring two goals and numerous points without a response from the home team as the home side seemed to lose focus
There was soon only one point between the teams, however it wasn't long before the Clan girls turned things around with Shannon O'Neill and Carmel Conway winning kick outs resulting in Cora Devin and Hannah Sheerin scores
When the final whistle was blown Clann Na nGael held a comfortable lead of 3-10 2-3
Played in perfect conditions at Dunamanagh on Tuesday evening 7th April), Clan Na nGael minor boys resumed their league campaign against Drumragh.
Following the concession of an early goal, the clans settled into the game with some excellent point taking from Tony Devine, Conor Kerlin and Danny Conwell to level the scores with less than 10 minutes on the clock.
By this stage Niall Kerlin and Shane Canning were locked in on 2 tantalising one-on-one duals with their opposite numbers - with Niall and Shane giving an exhibition of tenacious defensive play. Serious commitment was there for all to see from all departments of the home side but Drumragh demonstrated why they are well-fancied for honours this season with a very strong attacking 2nd quarter. Half Time scoreline: Clan n nGael 0:04. Drumragh: 3:08.
The second half started with a couple of early points from Drumragh which was followed by a period of incessant pressure from the Clans. Tony Devine opened his account for the second half with a trademark lung bursting run followed by a classy finish.
Some excellent link play from Kelan Conway and Daniel Houston was rewarded with scores apiece - Daniel's point in particular, from the narrowest of angles, oozed class.
Drumragh then hit a purple patch with fast inter-play and strong running - in truth many Grade 1 teams would have struggled to deal with.
To their credit, the home side maintained focus and were rewarded with late goals from Tony Devine and Conor Devine.
Special mention must go to young Conor Devine who was always an outlet for the defence and his exceptional ball play into the forward unit caused Drumragh all sorts of problems over the hour.
Full time score: Clan Na nGael 2:08 Drumragh 7:10
Continues for Primary school Children P4 to P7 on Monday 13th April from 7:30pm to 8:30pm.
Last week’s Lotto letters were E O R and Z. There were no Jackpot or match three winners.

you for the days,
Those endless days, those sacred days you gave me,
I'm thinking of the days,
I won't forget a single day believe me."
The above lyrics, taken from a song originally sung by the Kinks, seem
entirely apt to summarise the feelings of everyone concerned with the
club after the recent announcement of Brian Dooher's retirement from
County football. His county career began with an Ulster Minor medal in
1993 before he went on to make his mark in the Senior ranks winning 3
All-Irelands (two as captain), 5 Ulster Championships, 2 National
Leagues, 3 All Stars, 2 Railway Cups, 1 International Rules Series and 1
Sigerson Cup. His decision brings to an end the County career of arguably
the most effective and influential player the County has ever produced.
We thank him for all the joy and pride he has bestowed upon us and we
look forward to seeing him in the club jersey for years to come.
