Congratulations to Robyn Joyce from Clontarf SC on her selection for the Irish U15 team travelling to the UK at the end of this month. Well done Robyn!
Clontarf U15 Boys team took part in the Irish U15 Cup this weekend, a strong performance on Saturday with wins against Drogheda and North Dublin gained them a place in the semi final against Corrib. This was a hard fought match with Corrib winning 12-5. Clontarf boys then had a third place playoff with St. Vincent’s. Saint Vincent’s started off strong getting a 2 goal lead going into the second quarter. Clontarf responded and levelled the score to 2-2, the match then went to 3-3, leading to an exciting fourth quarter, Clontarf took a 2 goal lead, St. Vincent’s came within 1 goal with two minutes left and Clontarf quickly responded again getting back the two goal lead. Eventually the score finished 6-4, with a great display of Waterpolo for both Leinster Clubs. The boys final was contested between Corrib and Clonard with the final score as 4-4 and Clonard winning on penalties. The girls final was between Tribes and St. Vincent’s, with St Vincent’s winning by 1 goal. Donegal Diamonds won against North Dublin in the Girls third place play off, Well done to all teams over the weekend, a great tournament. Thanks from Clontarf, we will be back next year.
