Jubilation and plenty of beeping was to be heard across Clare in the past week with the first pieces of silverware handed out in the ladies football underage championships.
Fergus Rovers were crowned U14A champions after beating Kilrush Shamrocks, in what was a tight affair the winners only began to pull away in the final ten minutes.
West Clare Gaels overcame the challenge of St Josephs Doora/Barefield in the U14A Shield while Burren Gaels had a goal to spare over Newmarket-on-Fergus in the U14A Plate.
St Josephs Miltown advanced to the U14B Cup final defeating Cúil Gaels by two points while Wolfe Tones proved too strong for Doonbeg in the U14C Shield final.
The Parish had bragging rights in the U16A final as they beat Fergus Rovers while St Josephs Miltown took the U16B Cup at the expense of Burren Gaels, the U16B Shield was claimed by Kilrush as they defeated West Clare Gaels.
Newmarket-on-Fergus beat rivals Clarecastle to scoop the U16C title with Cooraclare besting Cúil Gaels to take the U16C Shield and Kilmihil had too much for Clooney/Quin in the U16D Cup.
