AIB Ulster Club Senior Football Championship Semi-Final
Naomh Cónaill 0-12 Clontibret 0-9 16/11/19
Clontibret exited the Ulster Club SFC when Naomh Cónaill won their semi-final clash in Omagh last Saturday. The Glenties side led by 0-7 to 0-3 after a strong first-half performance which left Clontibret playing catch-up from early on. The Monaghan champions did manage a couple of brief rallies during the second half, but with Conor McManus kicking six of their nine points, they didn’t have the firepower to reel in Naomh Cónaill, who had 0-6 from Eoghan McGettigan and 0-3 from Ciarán Thompson. The Donegal club will face Kilcoo in the final.
