Camogie board sanctions new managements

THE October meeting of the Clare Camogie Board ratified the appointment of a number of inter-county managements for 2010.
The outgoing U-18 management team, led by Fintan McNamara, informed the board that they would not be seeking re-election, having spent a number of years in charge at this level.
Francie Mahon from Éire Óg was unanimously appointed as the new team boss and he will be joined by John Carmody, Niamh McInerney, Brendan Mulcaire, Jim Loughnane and Carina Roseingrave as selectors. This group acted as U-16 mentors last year.
Frances Browne will manage the U-16 team and selectors will be appointed in the coming weeks. Joe O’Gorman will manage the U-14 team and he will have Ken Morrissey and Pat Tuohy as selectors.
County officials hope to have Gerry O’Grady as the U-15 team manager. There will be a meeting of the Munster Development Squads Committee next Wednesday, when there will be a discussion on the U-15 inter-county development squads.
This week’s meeting confirmed that, following a hearing, the game between Feakle and Whitegate in the U-18C championship will be re-fixed and Feakle have been advised that they cannot include any members of the Bodyke club in their line-up for this tie.
The Munster club semi-final in which the Clare champions, Kilmaley, will play their Cork counterparts will take place on Saturday, October 24 at a Cork venue.
The Clare junior champions will also be in action on the same afternoon when they play either Tipperary or Cork.
The county meeting extended congratulations to the players and management of the Clare U-21 hurling and the Clare ladies intermediate football teams on their recent All-Ireland successes. The meeting also congratulated Chloe Morey and Darach Honan on being chosen for their individual awards.
Sympathy was extended to the Madden family and the Scariff club on the death of Olive Madden, a long standing member and a former secretary of the Scariff club. The meeting also passed a vote of sympathy to the family of the late Pa O’Brien, Ennis.
