Tralee CBS 4-13 Clonakilty CC 1-8

A dominant second half display by Tralee CBS saw them book their place in the last four of the TUS Corn Uí Mhuirí U19 A championship dispatching Clonakilty Community College in clinical fashion at Lewis Road on Saturday afternoon 15th January. The defending champions who led from gun to tape fired in three second half goals to put the contest beyond doubt having to endure a sticky patch in the opening half in which the west Cork outfit hit five points without a reply to cut an early seven-point lead back to just two by the 26th minute. The Tralee side galloped into an early run away lead helped by an 11th minute Donnacha Sayers goal.
The Crotta Club was represented on the Tralee CBS Team by Donnacha Sayers

Great win by Causeway CS on Saturday 15th January in Ballinora, Co Cork in the quarter final of the Munster Senior hurling Colleges competition. After a slow start our lads really turned on the style in the final quarter.

Causeway were 11 points down at the first water break, however 1-4 in the second quarter reduced the gap to 6 pts at half time. To leave the score Causeway 1-4 Bishopstown 1-10. The third quarter was a tight affair and both teams traded some excellent scores. The score at the final water break was Causeway 1-9 Bishopstown 1-15.

The final quarter was to be a game changer. Causeway outscored their opponents 3-7 to 3 points to run out winners by 7 points and book their place in the Munster semi-final in a few weeks’ time.

Massive congratulations to all the players who never gave up and showed great composure throughout and pulled off a great win coming back from 11 points down to win by 7 points. The Crotta Hurling Club was represented by Rory Mahony (0-02) at Center Forward
Causeway CS 4-16 Bishopstown 1-18

There was no rest for the ladies as they played Clooney Quinn Co. Clare, in the Munster Junior Club Semi Final 2021 on Saturday 15th January at the John Mitchels GAA Grounds and after magnificent display Clanmaurice bounce back to reach another final on the final score line of
Clanmaurice 4-12 Clooney Quin (Clare) 1-8
Clanmaurice does not believe in following scripts. The narrative was that six days after the pain of losing the 2020 All-Ireland Junior Club Final to Raharney by three points, they would not be able to raise their game against a young and fresh Clooney Quin side. Well, nobody told the Clanmaurice girls that and from the outset they dominated this contest and there was never a moment when anything other than a Clanmaurice victory was going to be the outcome at the John Mitchels GAA Grounds on Saturday last.
While their semi-final win over Athleague with only fourteen players in December made national headlines, their incredible spirit and will to win against the odds, goes slightly under the radar locally, the question has to be asked, is there any men’s team in the county that could contest three All-Ireland Finals in a row (five if you count replays) and after beating Clooney Quin on Saturday, they will now try for five in row Munster Junior titles on Sunday next in Mallow against An Rinn from Waterford with 18 players at most! Congrats to the Clanmaurice team and their backroom team, especially the Crotta players Player of the Game: Aoife Behan  (Wing Back) and Jackie Hogan Full forward (1-7, 3fs) We wish the players and the management the best of luck.  Please come out and show your support for this great bunch of ladies
