The St Francis Credit Union Clare Community Games U14 Girls Gaelic Football competitions were held on Sat May 19th in glorious sunshine in Gurteen. It was coordinated by Sean Lenihan with his team of referees. In the semi finals Doora/Barefield met Clarecastle/Ballyea and Lisdoonvarna/Doolin/Kilfenora/Kilshanny met Quin/Clooney. Doora/Barefield & Quin/Clooney progressed to the final while Lisdoonvarna/Doolin/Kilfenora/Kilshanny and Clarecastle/Ballyea met in the 3rd & 4th place playoff. After two very competitive matches Quin/Clooney emerged victorious taking the gold by beating Doora/Barefield by just 1pt on a score 0-09 to 1-05. They now go forward to represent Clare in the Munster finals in U.L. In July. In the play off both teams scored highly but Clarecastle/Ballyea edged ahead to take the bronze on a score of 7-10 to 6-03. The medals were presented by the fantastic referees Martin Nolan & Frank Culliton.
