Tansey Cup
Clann na nGael 1-10 Shannon Gaels 0-9
The Clann na nGael Junior A team overcame a fourteen man Shannon Gaels team on a damp Saturday in Johnstown. Both sides tore into to each other from the first whistle and Clann were on top at the break by 0-5 to 0-4. It was tit for tat for the majority of the second period, however a goal from Graham Petit put a bit more daylight between the sides. Clann had to withstand a late Shannon Gaels onslaught to hold for a deserved victory.
Team and scorers: Ronan O’Reilly, Keith Kildea, Daniel Harney, Ray Fallon, Darragh Egan, John Harney, Seanie Walsh, Dara Shine, Emmet Rock, Graham Petit 1-1, Alan Dunne 0-5, Phelim Lenehan, Fergal Shine, Colin Nicholson, Emmet Kenny 0-2. Subs: Ronan Gavin 0-2 Ronan Killian.

U16 League
Clann na nGael 0-9 St. Croans 2-11
The Clann na nGael under 16 team team traveled to Ballintubber to take on St. Croans on Sunday morning last. A good showing in the first half had Clann trailing their hosts 0-6 to 0-5 at half time. Clann went ahead early in the second half, but St. Croans rattled the Clann net twice in as many minutes to take control of the game. Clann tried in vain to gain parity as St. Croans held on as deserving winners. The Clann team and mentors were unhappy when they arrived at the venue they had to wait for over an hour for the throw in, as there was another game being played.
Team: Shane Scally, Martin Costello, Paddy Harney, Arran O’Reilly, Jack Connaughton, Shane Petit, Martin Flannery, Cillian Bannon, Malcom O’Hanlon, Shane Lacey, David Connaughton, Jamie Fahy, Eoin Forde, Rian Mc Namara, Arran Shine. Sub: Mark Shine
