It was with great sadness and deep regret that we learned of the passing of Agnes Hatton on Saturday last, after a long illness borne with great dignity and fortitude. Agnes was a past Principle of Baylin National School where she fostered a deep love of Gaelic games and for many generations of Caulry players it was their first and enduring introduction to the games. Agnes was a great supporter of the Caulry club and all things cultural. Her husband, George is a stalwart member and past player of the club. Her two sons, David and Kenneth also played with distinction, and in addition, joined with their sister, Freda, in representing us for many years at Scor. The large turn out at Agnes’s funeral and guard of honour, bore fitting testimony to the high esteem in which she was held. In addition, flags were flown at half mast on the club grounds and a minutes silence observed at all matches during the week. We extend our deepest sympathy to George, David, Kenneth, Freda and the extended family on their great loss.

U16 League
Caulry 4-18
Maryland/Tang 4-10
Caulry clinched the Division 1 League title by virtue of a hard fought victory in their final league match against a dogged Maryland/Tang outfit. At home on a warm and balmy Tuesday evening last, the rather large attendance witnessed another entertaining encounter with some long range exceptional point taking from both sides the order of the day. Despite being at opposite ends of the table, any thoughts that the combination side would hand the hosts an easy two points were very quickly dispelled within seconds of the throw in, when the visitors goaled. Caulry regained their composure with well worked points from Matthew Nally and Darren Browne. Our first goal arrived around the ten minute mark, and inevitably it was Nally who finished after good build up play. We added four more points, before Maryland/Tang flicked home a second goal. We added another goal and a series of excellent points as a result of some patent and flowing moves to lead 2-10 to 2-4 at the break.
The start of the second period was a reverse of the first. This time Neil Clinton raced through for a fine individual to put us firmly in the driving. Despite this cushion, the Maryland/Tang boys remained determined and defiant, adding scores to keep within touching distance. It was not until another late Matthew Nally special that the Caulry boys could relax somewhat and celebrate a successful league campaign.
This was another fine all round performance by all Caulry players on duty. Darren Browne, was the stand out player in defence, in addition to kicking four invaluable points. Once again, Colin Murphy, Neil Clinton and Sean Fox controlled the game for large parts, in addition to providing the necessary leadership. Paddy McHugh and Liam Doyle were another great source of possession, while Thomas Dunning possess the necessary tools in his armoury to unlock the tightest of defences and feed a score hungry, Adam Donoghue and Matthew Nally.
Well done to the panel and their management team of Gerry Donoghue, Matt Hamilton, Brian Carolan, Hugh Clavin and TJ Dunning.

Minor Championship Round 1
Caulry 3-21
Mullingar Shamrocks 2-4
Caulry made the journey to Springfield Park on Wednesday last for their first game of this year’s Minor Championship.
Our lads raced out of the tracks as Sean Woods rattled the back of the Mullingar net inside the opening 60 seconds. Liam Malynn kicked Caulry’s first point of the game on the 2nd minute. Colin Murphy worked hard in the middle of the field as points from Malynn and Woods kept the scoreboard ticking over. Some fine scores from Conor McCormack and Cialan Dollard allowed Caulry to build up a commanding lead early in the half. The Shamrocks’ boys got off the mark on the quarter-hour mark with a well-taken goal. However, our defence held strong with Darren Hynds and Eoin Shortall having impressive displays. Some good play from Sean and Neil Clinton allowed Dollard and Murphy to tap over fine points. Ultimately, our lads dominated proceedings in the first half as further scores from McCormack and Bradbury Hughes left Mullingar Shamrocks trailing 1-12 to 1-0 at the halftime whistle.
The second half followed in the same vein with our lads on top. An early point from Sean Clinton stretched Caulry’s lead. The Mullingar boys drew two back with two pointed frees. Charlie Parker defended well as Clinton and McCormack added to the scoring tally. Mullingar Shamrocks kicked the next score of the game to narrow the deficit. However, some good combined teamwork from our lads enabled Dollard to send the ball to the back of the opposition’s net on the 39th minute. Caulry kicked an unanswered 0-3, with Malynn, McCormack and Bradbury Hughes on target. A well-taken goal from Bradbury Hughes allowed our lads to push on. Substitutes Adam Mullins and Emmet Nally worked well when introduced as Lee Guinan Malone, Clinton and Dollard slotted over some nice scores. A late penalty for Shamrocks meant Caulry ran out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 3-21 to 2-4.

A good kickout from Michael Carroll was worked up the field and tapped over the bar by Eric Fallon on the 7th minute. Tubberclaire responded with a well-taken point from play. However, some good defending from James Pettit and Pat Buckley enabled Hugh Allen to stretch Caulry’s lead. Gary Flanagan kicked the next two scores of the game to leave nine points the margin by the quarter-hour mark. A superb intercept from Eoin Donohoe and some good combined teamwork from Stephen Woods and Ben Moran allowed Mark Fitzpatrick to rattle the back of the opposition’s net on the 17th minute. The Tubberclaire men worked hard and converted two frees to narrow the deficit. However, a late point from Keith McMenamin meant Caulry lead 3-6 to 0-3 at the interval.
On the resumption, Stephen Brookes added to the scoring tally with two quick points. A good pass from Hugh Allen found Fallon who slotted the ball over the bar.
