2023 End of Year Review – Division 3B

As preparations are well underway for next season, we take a look back at how the Division 3B teams fared in 2023.

An Port Mor

An Port Mor enjoyed a great 2023 campaign, which ended with some silverware and a championship run.

Gary McCrilly’s side captured the Division 3B league title, finishing just one-point clear of their nearest challengers Clann Eireann IIs.

They recorded a brilliant win over Collegeland in the championship to reach the last eight, where they lost to Clonmore.

Clady

Clady came so close to climbing out of the bottom division, but a last round draw with Thomas Davis saw them miss out.

They ended up finishing in third place in the league table, just one-point behind Clann Eireann IIs.

Clady reached the playoff round of the Junior Championship but lost out heavily to eventual finalists Ballyhegan.

Clann Eireann II

What a season 2023 turned out to be. Clann Eireann IIs went on an amazing journey that no doubt exceeded their wildest expectations.

They finished second in the Division 3B league table, earning promotion to the top tier of Junior football.

But come championship time they embarked on an incredible run, winning all five of their games to claim the Sean Quinn Cup.

Killeavy II

Killeavy IIs won five of their 12 league games and finished in the bottom of the Division 3B league table.

But their form picked up just in time for the championship and they went all the way to the quarter-finals.

They were unlucky to lose out to eventual winners Clann Eireann IIs, who nudged past them by the minimum of margins.

Mullabrack

It wasn’t a great season for the Mullabrack club, who continue to grow and improve year on year.

They finished at the bottom of the Division 3B league table but did score three victories throughout the campaign.

Mullabrack lost all three of their championship group games to Dorsey, Ballyhegan and Thomas Davis.

Redmond O’Hanlon’s

Redmond O’Hanlon’s picked up three victories and two draws in their league campaign to finish second from bottom.

That final points tally saw them rest on eight points by the time the Division 3B league had wrapped up.

They finished bottom of their championship group with three defeats on the trot to Lissummon, Collegeland and Clady.

Thomas Davis

The Corrinshego men finished right in the middle of the Division 3B league table after a decent campaign.

They put in a solid shift in the championship as well, topping their group with wins over Ballyhegan and Mullabrack and a draw with Dorsey.

Thomas Davis went all the way to the final four, losing out to Clann Eireann IIs by just four-points.
