We ask all parents and juvenile players to note that our Annual Summer Camp will commence on Monday 29th June and continue until Friday 3rd July. This of course depends on the Corona Virus and our efforts to defeat its progress.

GAA – The Early Years – Cloneen Footballers

In 1906 Cloneen were represented at the Co. Convention in Thurles by Frank Meagher and Jim Noonan. Cloneen defeated Cahir by 1-5 to 0-6 in the first round of the Co. Senior Football Championship. In the second round in Mullinahone on October 29 a Slievardagh player refused to leave the field when the referee ordered him off and the match was awarded to Cloneen. The Cloneen team was: Jack Tobin (captain), Tom, Pat and Jack Cormack, William Hickey, Pat Carew, Frank Walsh, Tom & Bill Clancy, Jack Phelan, Dick Morrissey, Tom Pollard, John Gleeson, Pat Scanlon, Tom O’Donnell and Jack and Mick Roche. The C.J. Kickham band from Drangan played a choice selection of tunes during the match. The 1906 Co. Semi Final was played in The Commons on Sunday April 28 when after a close game the reigning Co. champions Grangemockler defeated Cloneen by 2 points. The game was refereed by Mr. M.Brennan DC. Jack Phelan played for Tipperary Senior Footballers defeated by Kerry in the Munster Semi Final of 1906. In 1907 Cloneen defeated Clonmel Emmets to qualify for a Co. semi final against Grangemockler on Sunday March 29 1908 in Mullinahone. After another great battle Grngemockler were victorious and went on to defeat Cashel in the Co. Senior Football Final of 1907 to complete a Five in a Row of Co. Tipperary Senior Football Championships. But things would change in 1908.
