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.

Bereavement
We extend sympathy to John Fitzgerald Tubber Cloneen and formerly Magoury Drangan
and his family Jane, John Paul, Christine, Conor and Mary on the recent death of his wife Christine who passed away last week following a short illness.
John won a Co. Minor A Football Championship in 1971 and played for several years despite suffering some serious injuries and won a South Tipperary Junior Football League in 1972 and a South Tipperary Intermediate League in 1977 and also served as Chairman of St. Patricks GAA club for 3 years. John Paul played for St. Patricks some years ago while Conor was a very effective and dependable goalkeeper for our under 14 hurlers this year and will still be under 14 in 2020.
May the soul of Christine rest in Peace.
