Clonoe Vs Errigal Ciaran – 2013 Tyrone GAA ACL Division 1

In a return to the Tyrone ACL following last weekend’s county action, I was back in Clonoe for the Division 1 tie between the Rahilly’s and Errigal Ciaran.

Following a disappointing home performance from Clonoe a fortnight ago against Ardboe, in which they lost, Damien Cassidy made a few changes in the team and it made all the difference. Despite a good start from Errigal Ciaran and scores coming from Thomas Canavan to put them 0-04 to 0-02 up, Clonoe took control of the game and attacked with intent with a lot of good work coming from Declan McClure, PJ Lavery, Ryan O’Neill, Paul Coney and Danny Mc Nulty in full forward. Their hard work paid off and went in at HT 1-06 to 0-04 up following a fisted goal from O’Neill.

Clonoe extended their lead to 7 points in the second half with scores from McNulty who scored all his 45’s from the ground. Errigal battled back late on into the game with some good play from Peter Harte, Ciaran McGinley and the Tierney brothers but the absence of Enda Mc Ginley, who came off before half time with an injury, proved to be too much as Clonoe dominated around midfield and they held out for an important 2 league points.

Full time score; Clonoe 1-11 Errigal Ciaran 0-10.
