A narrow defeat in Drumhowan on Saturday evening in the Platinum Tanks Reserve final in a game that could have been won. Well done to the players and management for their efforts during the year as the competition has certainly brought on some young players who will be making their senior championship debut in the not-too-distant future.
In the senior hurling championship, there’s an away game with Carrick on 9 August followed by a home game with the Harps on 16 August.
Sympathy is extended to a number of families with associations with the club who have suffered bereavements lately – to the McCooey family on the death of Jim; the Boyle family on the death of Eddie, the Rooney family on the death of Brian and the McKenna family on the death of Brian.

The late Fiona Gormley
All deaths are traumatic for the families involved but the death of Fiona Gormley has left her family, her club, and her community bereft at the loss of a fine young woman in the prime of life. Fiona was a lifelong supporter of all Clontibret teams at all age groups who never left anyone in any doubt about where her allegiances lay. She will be missed on the terraces and around the club but most especially she will be missed by her devoted family. Sincere condolences to Seamus, Lianne, Sophie, James and Aaron, her parents Phelim and Philomena, her brothers and sisters Colm, (our esteemed vice chairman and county board delegate), Martin, Kevin, Bernie, Marion and their families along with the wider family circle. May her gentle soul rest in peace.
