Big Weekend Of Success For Offaly Teams thumbnailNaomh Ciaran celebrate after winning the Leinster club Intermediate Ladies Football title on Sunday.

IT is the business time of the year for many Offaly GAA teams and the weekend just gone proved a very successful one both on the home front and in Leinster circles.

Rhode opened their Leinster club senior football championship with a stunning 5-22 to 0-4 win over Gusserane of Wexford on Sunday with Niall McNamee top scoring with 1-8 for Paschal Keelaghan's men. They now have a home quarter final to Meath's Simonstown Gaels on Sunday week.

Meanwhile, Naomh Ciaran claimed the Leinster club Intermediate Ladies football title also on Sunday when they beat Dublin's Clanna Gael Fontenoy in Kinnegad on a scoreline of 2-15 to 3-5. Roisin Egan picked up the player of the match while substitute Roisin Ennis netted the two goals. They now play Parnells of London in the All Ireland series this weekend.

Shinrone Camogie also qualified for the Leinster club Intermediate Camogie final when they beat Kilmacud Crokes 4-7 to 0-11 in Shinrone on Sunday. Kerry McLeish found the net three times as the Offaly champions booked a final date against Myshall of Carlow on Sunday week in Parnell Park.

On the home front, there was joy for Clonbullogue and Ferbane who won the Junior 'C' and 'A' titles respectively with Ferbane's Ronan McGuire firing to the net in injury time to snatch a win for them over Kilclonfert by a point.

Clara won the Minor 'B' football championship while Ferbane/Belmont and St Broughan's played out another draw in the Minor 'A' football final replay, this time with extra time thrown in for good measure.
