Two Clare teenagers have put pen to paper on new deals with U17 League of Ireland sides.

Caoilfionn Madden has signed for Galway WFC and will line out with their U17 side. She had previously been a key player on underage teams for Tulla Utd and also at Gaynor Cup level for her county.

In a statement paying tribute to her move, Tulla Utd said Caoilfhionn’s departure brought “pride and lots of sadness”. She featured on club teams at U14 and U16 level last season. “She has been with Tulla Utd AFC since she started playing four years ago. We have seen her develop into an outstanding player over the years. We will miss not only her ability on the field but her wonderful attitude off it”.

Amy Madden will also be competing in the U17 League of Ireland. The Newmarket-on-Fergus native has transferred from Ballingarry AFC to Treaty Utd. A second year student at St Patricks Comprehensive in Shannon, Amy is also a noted camogie player with the Blues, her mother Elaine McMahon was the first woman to captain Newmarket-on-Fergus to senior championship glory in 2001.

Amy also represented Clare at Gaynor Cup level and featured in the U15 Munster Schools competition.

Newly appointed Treaty Utd U17 manger, Craig Hurley welcomed Amy’s addition as an “excellent singing”. He succeeded Ennis woman Irene Hehir as manager last month.
