The Clann na nGael under-12 team continued their winning ways in the Championship on Monday evening last with a hard fought victory over St. Dominic’s. The lads had to come from behind to record a well deserved win. Clann were all set for their winner takes all clash with Strokestown on Sunday. Clann were slow out of the blocks but made an excellent recovery and were unlucky to be bet by the bare minimum. The lads gave a great account of themselves in the last under-12 championship and some of the players are to be prominent players in the club in the future. The second team have reached the county final by virtue of the their win over Padraig Pearses on Tuesday evening last.
