Clonoe O’Rahillys displayed true character and tenacity as they overcame pre game favourites Truagh Gaels and the elements to lift The Creggan Kickhams Ulster Under 21 title this afternoon.
Playing with the aid of the wind in the opening half the Tyrone champions reached the break just two in front as they led 0-4 to 0-2 at the short whistle. Against a side as good as Truagh few felt that a two point lead would be sufficient to keep the Monaghan champions at bay.
However Clonoe began the second period strongly and a deflected Danny Mc Nulty goal eight minutes into the second half gave them additional belief and a decent lead. Strong defensive work restricted the Monaghan side to just two points in the opening fifteen minutes of the second half. Indeed so good was Clonoe’s second half showing that Truagh failed to score again until the second minute of additional time by which time the title was well and truly secured. Daryl Magee completed a perfect day for the winners picking up the man of the match award.
Final score Clonoe 1-10, Truagh Gaels 1-4. More details to follow.
