Travellers quit soccer due to racist abuse

FOUR travellers, who had been playing soccer for Sporting Ennistymon, have left the sport following numerous incidences of racist abuse. Figures in the club have voiced their upset at the abuse meted out to the young men, which had become increasingly frequent since the beginning of the current season. Secretary of the Clare District Soccer League, Michael Lydon, refused to comment on the issue on Wednesday. Twenty-four-year-old Michael Sherlock had played for the club, along with his brothers, Edward and Patrick, and their cousin, Martin Mongan. He said that, in recent months, opponents had increasingly sought to insult their background.“We go out and play and you have fellas saying into your ear, ‘Go away, you knacker’. When we react, the referee doesn’t do anything to the other party.” Earlier this year he was sent off in a match played at Lees Road after reacting to a person who referred to him as a “knacker”, while the player who dispensed the offensive …

Magnificent Miltown are champions for 14th time

St Joseph’s Miltown 0-14 Ennistymon 0-8 ST Joseph’s Miltown are county football champions for the 14th time, following a superb second half display in the 2018 county final in Cusack Park. Miltown won their last senior championship in 2015 and tied down Jack Daly for 2018 when they outscored Ennistymon 0-8 to 0-4 in the second half, having led by two points at the interval. The big difference between the sides was Miltown’s ability to score from play. Six of their players combined to kick their 0-10 tally from play. In contrast only Joe Dowling, who fought manfully and Joey Rouine raised white flags from play for Ennistymon, who showed great heart throughout. Following a frenetic first half, Miltown led 0-6 to 0-4 at half-time. Ennistymon’s kick out strategy caused problems for Miltown in the opening quarter and that helped them into a 0-3 to 0-1 lead by the 11th minute. Joe Dowling kicked three of Ennistymon’s first half points …

Heartbreak for Ennistymon CBS

St. Declan’s Kilmacthomas 2-7 Ennistymon CBS 1-8 There was heartbreak for Ennistymon CBS in the Munster colleges Corn Shean Ui Mhurchu senior C football final at Mick Neville Park in Rathkeale on this Saturday afternoon. Ahead by six points at half time, things looked food for the North Clare outfit but they went twenty minutes of the second half without a s core and this proved very costly. Paul allen goaled for the Waterford side four minutes into the second half and this goal rocked the Clare side and clearly gave the winners great confidence. St.Declan’s had drawn level by the mid point of the half and then hit the front when full forward John Power goaled. Ennistymon fought back with three unanswered points in as many minutes to cut the winners lead to the minimum but despite their best efforts they were unable to get a levelling point and with the game in ‘injury time’ St.Declans landed the insurance …
