Dear friends, A new season has started in the Inishowen Football
League. This year again we have two teams entered, Clonmany Youths
and Clonmany Shamrocks.
The Youths, we are happy to say, are improving and are expected
to do quite well, while the Shamrocks are still a force to be reckoned
The club now has acquired insurance for players. All concerned
consider insurance very important and see this as a great step forward.
The Inishowen Football League hope to get affiliated to the League
of Ireland and this should open up many advantages to players.
The club hopes to run a competition for the youngsters this year
again as the one last year was a great success.
Once again we would like to thank everyone who helped us out over
the years and hope we can have your continued support.
Finally, we would like to say that anyone interested in joining
the club will be very welcome.
Yours in Sport,
