The Billy Hogan Memorial Shield
What a beautiful day we had yesterday Sunday 12/10/14 as we hosted Ballylooby and Newcastle in our U/12 Hurling Blitz for The Billy Hogan Memorial Shield. The first game saw our two guests facing each other and after a well contested game Ballylooby emerged winners. We then faced Newcastle and after a tight opening Jack Connolly scored a rapid hat- trick to put us in a commanding position. The destination of The Shield was to be decided in the final game between ourselves and Ballylooby and going on the previous two games it looked like it was going to be a close encounter but from the start our lads put in a huge effort and goals from Jack Connolly, Fabian Kerton and Adam Lonergan put us on the road to victory. This was a great team performance and it was great to see a bit of success as we come to the end of this season. This team has come a long way from when we started and a lot of credit must go to Pajoe Kerton, Ciarán Barrett and Tommy Murphy for the hard work they put in coaching. I don't usually single out players for special mention but even his team mates would agree that Jack Moore was outstanding and he was closely followed by captain Fabian Kerton.
PANEL- Seanie Hawkins, Keenan Kerton, Fabian Kerton, Julian Kerton, Keane Farrell, Jack Moore, Dean Tobin- Lowe, Adam Lonergan, Jack Connolly, Thomas Shanahan, Ciarán Ryan, Anthony- John Sweeney,Oisín Grace.
This day could not have happened without the considerable efforts of a lot of club members. Firstly Fiona Gregory, Sharon Conron and Gina Burns who done a marvellous job on the catering as they always do. Catherine Murphy, Catherine O' Meara and Elaine Downey who helped co- ordinate affairs, Jack Downey and Cian O' Sullivan who help out in officiating , Mark Dillon for his help in setting up the pitch
and the parents who attended yesterday supporting the team and for their help in supplying the refreshments we really appreciate your efforts and Ali Yousif who could not be there yesterday but still helped out with the preparations . A huge thanks to Ballylooby and Newcastle for their part in a very enjoyable day for everybody.
Under 12 Hurling
The curtain came down on our season with defeat against Ballylooby in the Quarter Final of The South Tipperary Shield. There are no excuses we were beaten by the better side on the day and we wish them the best of luck in the semi- final. We were without Jack Moore injured and Adam Lonergan sick which did not help and we wish them a speedy recovery.
It has been a pleasure working with this squad their commitment to the club and the enjoyment they gave us was outstanding. A lot of these boys and girls never played organised football or hurling before and their progress has been tremendous and they deserve great credit for that. A big thanks to all the squad and we look forward to working with them all again in 2015,

MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS WEEK
We want to say a BIG THANK YOU to all who made this U6 & U8 blitz such a success. Almost 150 boys and girls took part and enjoyed themselves in glorious sunshine over Ned Hall Park. South Tipperary Action Network promoted this blitz to highlight the important link between physical activity and mental health and we were very happy to lend our support.
A huge amount of work went on behind the scenes beforehand and on the day itself, and we couldn't have made it happen without the help of the following: Tommy, Ciaran, Ross, Jimmy, Pakie, Brian, Ivan, Tom, Mark, Noel, John, Frank, Jason, Donna, Katie, Sharon, Fiona, Ali, Gina, Elaine, & Johnny. Well done all.
Thanks to all the parents who provided food and a special thank you to the Moyle Rovers club for coming in with such great numbers and contributing to a wonderful day.
After the victory over St Marys at Ned Hall Park by 4-7 to 1-5, the Clonmel Og/Clerihan combo hurling team had another win against Ballingarry [away] in the O Dwyer cup by 4-11 to 1-7.
We travelled to Carrick on Suir to take part in a Hurling blitz organised by the Carrick Swan club. We were in a group with Clonea- Power, St Mollerens and Carrick Swan. Our first game against Clonea- Power was a very tight affair where we played very well but we failed to take a few chances and we lost by 1 point. In our second outing we faced St Mollerens but as the saying goes we didn't turn up and were well beaten . Our third game against Carrick Swan finally saw us victorious and the highlight of this game was a superb goal by Julian Kerton. Another great experience for the boys and an enjoyable days hurling. We would like to thank Carrick Swan for the invitation and also a big thanks to the parents who travelled and supported us again we really appreciate it and credit to the panel of players for their efforts.
We finished runners up in the shield of the John Cummins U10 football tournament. Our 18 strong squad were a credit to their parents, club and themselves, lead abley by none other than their captain and talisman, Dylan Murphy, who racked up an impressive 4-15 on the day. Well done boys
Another great outing had by our U6 footballers on Sunday 21st September in Mullinahone. We played games against the hosts, Fethard, & Rockwell and ate like kings at the after blitz refreshments. Big thank you to Mullinahone for the invite and to Terry Mahony for taking the pictures.

UNDER 14 HURLING
Disappointment for our U/14 Hurlers who were defeated by Moyne - Templetouhy in last Saturday's County Final. It was a game where big scores were going to be decisive and hard as we tried we could not get that vital goal whilst our opponents managed two. We never stopped pressing forward but in the end we had to succumb to very deserving winners and congratulations to Moyne- Templetouhy on their victory. Our lads can be very proud of their achievements in 2014, two South titles and a County title, and the enjoyment they have given us has been tremendous. They are a credit to themselves , Their families, their coaches and to our club and well done all on a great year.
Tuesday evening 23/9/2014 sees us travel to Ballyporeen to face Moyle Rovers in the quarter final of the South Senior Football Championship. This is a tough task for our lads against one of the aristocrats of Tipperary football but all we can demand is that we give it everything that we have and see where that takes us. Best of luck to the lads.

Congratulations to Dean Kelleher on his adult debut in football when he lined out for Tipperary juniors yesterday against a strong Cork side in Cahir. Unfortunately possession was scarce and the play took place in the Tipperary half for most of the game.
u21 Clonmel Og / Clerihan team were defeated by Swan tonite in Semi Final at New Inn played in Shocking conditions.
A big thank you to all our players who made a huge effort to be there for game traveling back from Dublin,Cork, Galway,Limerick and Waterford.
Its was close to cruel making both teams play in the awful conditions. The GAA and South Board do great work to promote and give players a platform to play our games but tonights game which both teams were forced to play, in unplayable conditions did nothing to promote GAA.
Great credit goes to our lads who fought back in the second half to get within a point of Swan after being 11pts down at half time. Swan showed good composure in the final 10 mins and held on for the victory by
4-3 to 3-1, the loss of our Captain Darragh Kearney to illness before game was a big loss but lads who took to the field gave it there all and can be proud of there efforts,
Well done to Swan who prob deserved the win on the night and best of luck to them in final.
Thanks to all members of u21 Valley Rovers panel
and mentors and best of luck for the u21 Hurling and Minor grades.
(Thank you to Noel Walsh for this report)

Dylan Murphy shouldered some very heavy tackles in the midfield area and lead by example.

‘Hon the Óg.
Despite the absence of a few regulars, the Clonmel Og / Clerihan combination U21B Football team recorded a great win in their third round South Championship game vs. Mullinahone today in Clonmel. Conditions were very poor, but playing with the aid of the wind, we started brightly and had 1.02 scored within the first three minutes after a well worked Conor Arrigan goal. Our boys proceeded to dominate the rest of the first half with scores from Dean Kelleher, Stevie O' Connell, & Mikey Lynch to lead 1.07 to 0.01 at the break.
The second half started with three quick attacks - one of which was converted by Eddie Power to extend our lead to 8 points. This proved to be our last score of the game as a determined rear guard action was required to keep Mullinahone at arm's length in the face of a gale force wind. Mullinahone had reduced the deficit to 3 points by the final whistle but never looked like getting the goal they needed thanks to some magnificent defending. All the boys played well and we now look forward to a semifinal vs Carrick Swans next weekend. Well done all concerned, and we wish them well in the semi final
Team: Shane Murphy, Brian Bates, Declan Bennett, Andrew O' Donnell, Dean Horton, Aaron Arrigan, Dan Walsh, Darragh Kearney (c), Marc Ahearne, Shane Fehilly, Stevie O' Connell, Eddie Power, Conor Arrigan, Dean Kelleher, Michael Lynch
We send our best wishes to Darragh Kearney who lines out for the Tipperary footballers in the Munster U21 Quarter Final vs. Waterford on Wed night (13th) in Semple Stadium. Throw in is at 19.30.
This is Darragh's second year on the team and in recent years he has developed into a fine footballer; a crucial member of our senior football team. Best of luck Darragh!

Juvenile girls training for U14, U12, & U10s resumes on Saturday at 12.00. All are welcome!
Tough day at the office yesterday for the combined Clonmel Og & Clerihan U21 footballers in our second round match vs. Killenaule. We started the game poorly,and apart from a 10 minute purple patch either side of half time, things got progressively worse. Handling errors and missed chances saw our opponents race into a nine point lead but good points from Stevie O' Connell and Darragh Kearney kept us in touch. A missed goal chance right on the half time whistle proved very costly and we went in 0.02 to 1.06 down at the break. A bright start to the second half cut the deficit to five points and we were playing reasonably well. Killenaule came back strongly and kept the scoreboard ticking over whilst we were struggling in too many areas of the pitch. Three late goals for our opponents put a gloss on their tally. Final score 0.05 to 4.13.
It's fair to say that Killenaule were much better on the day, but the final score did not reflect the balance of play. However, the players need to take stock and consider their own efforts over the hour. Attendances at training from the U21s are not what they should be and need to be improved if we are do well in this competition. Our best players over the hour were Stevie O' Connell, Aaron Arrigan, & Darragh Kearney who was playing his third game in a 24 hour period. Team: Shane Murphy, Mark Duggan, Aaron Arrigan, Paddy Power, Dean Horton, Declan Bennett, Shane Fehilly, Darragh Kearney (c), Leo Curtain, Eddie Power, Stevie O' Connell, Dan Walsh, Conor Arrigan, Dean Kelleher, Mikey Lynch, Brian Bates, Mike Walsh
We will most likely be out against Mullinahone next weekend with the winner progressing to the knock out stages so it is vital that the panel mind themselves and prepare as well as they possibly can for the game. C'mon the Og!
Our senior footballers play their first match of 2013 this morning at 11.30 in a challenge vs. Rathgormack (Co. Waterford). Training has been going well and it should be an interesting run out.
We play Killenaule in the second round of the U21B football championship this Saturday at 14.30 in Monroe. The team will train at 19.30 on Friday and it's important that all players are in attendance.
