An tSraith Uladh (un tryh ulloo) (The Ulster League)
After a scenic journey to the foothills of the Mournes, the Cilles continued their recent good form with a 5-15 to 0-12 win over a young Cluain Daimh side (Clonduff) last Saturday evening (26th April).
NCC hurled impressively with several of the goals born of excellent, unselfish approach teamwork and exquisite finishing.
In a good team showing Peter Corr, Chris Cross, Seamus OHagan, Paul Maguire, Joe Mór, Rory O'Neill, Jack Ryan and Ruairí Hagan caught the eye.
Team: Andrew Byrne, Eric Kirwin, John Connolly, Pete Corr, Ryan Mór, Niall O'Neill, Seán Kelly, Séamus Hagan (2-7, 0-4 frees), Chris Cross, Colm Connolly, Paul Maguire (0-2), Joe Mór (0-2), Rory O'Neill (0-2),
Brian Rua (1-0), Jack Ryan (1-1). Darren Murphy for Rua (39th), Ruairí Hagan (1-1) for Collie (49th), James McCann (51st) for aon duine eile.
The win leaves us top of the Division 2 table going into the break for the county teams c'ships. Our next game is against Down's Liatroim Fontenoys in Clochóg on Sat May 24 at 4pm.
The Fontenoys are one of the fancied sides to lift the title and it will be a good test of this Colum Cille side. Keep an eye on the club twitter, facebook and www.naomhcolumcille.com

An tSraith Faoi 16 (un tryh fwee shea yeg) U16 League
The deep sleep continued with the u16s. Without a full compliment, the league game with Dungannon was conceded and a puck about match went ahead being the sides.
Only time will tell if this nadir will result in an upturn in effort towards the c'ship or a continuation of the ennui. U16 squad contact number is 07922 277515

Cycling advice 15 from 'The Master':
16 weeks in ; if you've been following this programme or something similar then by this stage you've lots of hard miles done and are now ready for the last big training challenge before you tackle the NCC 100.
The challenge this weekis to do 80 miles by cycling right round the lough. Not only will this help prepare you physically but it will also prepare you mentally ;
and as any good coach will tell you "having the mind right is at least as important as having the body right."
It is best if you can do this cycle with someone else or in a small group of similar ability. But if you have to do it on your own - do it. The basic route starting from NCC is :
NCC - Portadown - Lurgan - Aghagallon - Aghalee - Crumlin - Antrim - Randalstown - Toome - Ballyronan - Ballinderry - Ardboe - NCC.
Clockwise or anti-clockwise ? it doesn't matter. Taking short stops around 20 miles and 60 miles with a longer stop at 40 miles should break the journey up nicely. Enjoy it!
