Review of the Decade – 2010-19

 

We held the County Comórtas Peile na Gaeltacht finals twice (2011 & 2017) while also hosting the National finals in 2011; winning the Senior National title in 2011. In 2012 we won Co. Board Gaeltacht club of the year.  In 2017 our seniors won the County CPnaG and progressed to the finals in Tourmakeady.

 

Our reserves have a great track record in championship winning the Intermediate B in 2010, 2016 & 2019. They also won the Senior B championship in 2012. They also have league titles to their name – winning Div2 in 2012 and again in 2014. In 2014 our seniors won the Intermediate Final & reached Ulster Semi final; in that same year Cloughaneely won County Board Intermediate club of the year and Gaeltacht club of the year awards. In 2017 Cloughaneely were promoted to Div 1 and have managed to retain that status for 2020.

 

In 2011 our ladies won the Donegal Ladies JFC; but lost to Iniskeen in the Ulster Semi. In 2013 they were also crowned Donegal Gaeltacht Intermediate champions.

 

We are delighted to have our underage teams showing so well recently. Our minors won both league and championship county finals in 2016. In that same year the U-14’s claimed the Div2 League title. In 2017 our U-16’s were Div3 League and Championship winners. 2019 has been a particularly successful year; our U-13’s reached the county final; our U-14’s won Div1 B championship and our U-16’s were Div 2A winners!

 

We upgraded our facilities in the early 2012 to include a top of the range gym in our clubhouse which continues to be improved in recent years. In May 2019 redevelopment of our pitch and training area began with a new sand based pitch being put down – PCC was our home pitch for 2019.

 

We were proud to have many players over the past 10 years represent the club at the various stages of county level. Most recent is Jason McGee who has played at county level from minor right up to senior level. At minor he won both Ulster League and championship titles; a team which Michael Mulhern was also a part of. McGee also made history for the club by bringing the clubs first ever county senior Ulster medal home in 2019! Our ladies also represented at county level with Róisin Curran captaining the Donegal team that won Ulster U-18 M.F.C in 2013; she was also part of 2015 U-21 team who won the All-Ireland B Final alongside Evelyn McGinley!

The Club Year  – 2019

 

Tháinig scamaill dhorcha os cionn an fhóchumann i mí Eanáir na bliana seo nuair a bhris an scéala go bhfuair imreoir sinsir de chuid Chloich Cheann Fhaola (agus iarchaptean) John Harley bás i dteannta iar-imreoir de chuid an fhóchumann Daniel Scott, Shaun Harkin & Míchael Roarty. Bhí Daniel ina ball dhílis de gach foireann a raibh baint aige leo ag gach leibheál ó faoi aois go sinsear. Bhí nádúr an cheannaire go smior ann John Harley agus bhí meas air agus grá dó ar an pháirc imeartha agus taobh amuigh den pháirc imeartha. Radharc tochtmhar a bhí ann ag amharc ar baill agus imreoirí ag tacú lena chéile agus leis na teaghlaigh agus iad aontaithe le chéile. Ar dheis lámh Dé go raibh a n-anamacha.

 

Our senior team. managed by Michael Lynch, topped their group in the Intermediate Championship; winning two games and drawing one. They defeated Naomh Colmcille in the quarter finals and Aodh Ruadh in the Semi final before being narrowly defeated by St. Nauls in the final. Cloughaneely retained their Division 1 status for 2020 which was a great achievement; they won 6 and lost 12 of their games. The Reserves, managed by Adrian Houston, played and lost 1 game (v Red Hughs) in the Intermediate B group stages; due to Naomh Últan and Naomh Bríd not fielding for Cloughaneely’s remaining 2 games this meant they progressed to the quarter finals. They defeated Naomh Columba in the quarter final; St Nauls in the semi final & they faced Red Hughs again in the Final and walked away as Intermediate B County Champions! The U-21’s run in the B championship ended in their 1st game against a strong Termon side. The Ladies started the league in early March. They reached the Junior Gaeltacht final but lost to Naomh Columba. The championship campaign was short lived, losing to Downings. Aoife Doohan repesented the club in the u15 county team.

 

The minors reached the Division 2 Championship County Final but lost out, by 14 points to 10, to Four Masters. The Under-16s won the Division 2 Championship defeating Naomh Columba on a scoreline of 3-12 to 3-09 with Blake McGarvey scoring 3-8. Well done to Blake who was part of the Donegal U-16 Panel and Shane Cannon, Oran Craig & Ethan Friel who were on the U-15 Development Squad. Cloughanneely also won the u-14B county championship defeating Ardara 4-11 to 3-11 in the final. They defeated Glenfin in the quarter-final and beat Carndonagh in the semi final. They also secured wins over Termon and St. Eunans in the league and are steadily closing the gap on other rivals! The u-13s won the Northern Board final but were beaten by Four Masters in the County final. The u-12s played in Division 1 while it was a very busy year with games & blitzes throughout the northwest and further afield. The teams showed great commitment and heart all year!

 

2019 Roll of Honour:

Seniors: retained Div 1 status and reached Intermediate County Final

Reserves: Intermediate B Championship winners.

U-16 County Div 2A Winners

U-14 County Div 1B Winners

U-13: Div1Northern Board Winners
