w/b 11 July

129 children attended the Kellogg's GAA Cúl Camp and Nursery Camp at Dunavil, thanks to the coaches and the Club co-ordinators for their efforts; it all went off very well.


In Senior Camogie An Riocht defeated Castlewellan 3-22 to 1-6 to win the league. Well done to everyone associated with this triumph. Team: J Sloan, Clara Killen, L Rodgers, A O’Reilly, N Cunningham, N Kelly, P Mathews, O McAlinden, N Fearon, A Fearon, M Trainor, C Fearon, L Clarke, Carrie Killen, T Rooney. Subs: T Bowater, C Whyte, CL Spiers, A McDowell, T Donnan, S Rodgers.


The Junior Camogs won well in Kilclief, 6-16 to 1-2. Team: Andrea O’Neill, Caitlin Quinn, Caoimhe McAlinden, Charlene Whyte, Sarah Rodgers, Caoimhe Leigh Spiers, Aine O’Reilly, Patrice Matthews, Sophie Bowater, Lauren Clarke, Tiarna Donnan, Aoife McDowell, Ciarrai Connor. Subs: Tara Bowater, Clare Fearon, Emma Cousins, Eve Doran. The Juniors are top of the table with two games left, away to Aghaderg and home to Kilcoo who are second.


The Minor Camogs are unbeaten and top of the league with one game remaining, away to Clonduff who are in second place.


The U16 Camogs scored a big win over Dromara, fair play to the visitors who travelled even though they were struggling for a team and well done to the home management who agreed to play reduced numbers so the game could go ahead.

Team: Rachel Cunningham, Eve Doran, Cerys Clarke, Amy Clarke, Clare Fearon, Mollie Ireland, Shannagh Campbell, Caoimhe Donnan, Darcy Spiers, Rachel Clarke, Caitlin Small, Nanette Campbell. The U16 Camogs are two points off top spot with five league fixtures remaining away to Mayobridge, Ballycran and Atticall and home to Castlewellan and Drumaness so their fate remains very much in their own hands.


The Senior Footballers scored a 2-21 to 2-6 win over Glenn at Dunavil. The teams were locked at two points apiece when Jack McCartan palmed a ball onto the bar and the rebound fell kindly to him and he kicked to the open net. When Mattie Bagnall tagged on a point the visitors looked commanding with a four-point advantage but the home side kept their composure and kicked 1-4, the goal a great team score finished from close range by Paul Allen. With ten minutes of the half remaining Glenn had reduced the deficit to a point but An Riocht were into their stride now and shot seven points before the break and four on the restart to go twelve clear. Ronan McAlinden finished off some good play from Conor Clarke and Rory Cunningham with a forty-fifth minute goal leaving Jack McCartan’s response some ten minutes later of mere consolation value. Team: S Doran, L Rodgers, C Doyle 0-1, C McVeigh, A Sloan, P Allen 1-0, J Cunningham 0-3, J Colgan 0-1, R McAlinden 1-2 (2f), S Clarke 0-1, D Doyle 0-1, D Morgan 0-3, N McArdle 0-6 (3f), R Cunningham 0-2, P Gartland. Subs: C Clarke 0-1, C Cole, K Colgan, A White, R Clarke


The Reserve Footballers lost in Castlewellan 4-19 to 1-10.


In U18 Football An Riocht didn’t field to Drumgath, numbers are tight here and there were just too many missing due to work, holidays and injuries. The Minor Football League redraw fixtures have An Riocht at home to Annaclone on 30th July and to Bosco on 15th August and away to Tullylish on 1st August and to Clann Na Banna on 8th August.


The U16 Footballers won in Tullylish on Friday 1-13 to 0-10. They are joint top with Rostrevor with four games to go including away to the Reds and home to Bosco and Saval twice.


Go-Kart Making @ Dunavil was the main activity of the first week of the summer scheme.
