Preview 4/10/20 A tough task awaits An Port Mór’s seniors as they travel North to face promotion chasers Wolfe Tones. This is the North Armagh men’s first season in ACL 2B and on current form their stay will be a short lived one. Having beaten Clonmore last day out, Wolfe Tones sit joint top of the division having won five of their six games. An Port Mór on the other hand have won just one of their six games, having also drawn one. Their form may be a little better than their results suggest. In their three most recent games, all have been decided decisively in the final quarter. Last day out against Keady it was goals that done the damage. An Port Mór will be hoping to tighten things up at
An Port Mór 0-14 Keady 3-11 An Port Mór’s seniors faced an old nemesis on Sunday afternoon as Keady were the visitors to O’Neill Park. A perfect day for football with the sun splitting the trees, and only a slight breeze, both sides were looking for a win that would take them away from the bottom end of the table. Keady enjoyed the lion’s share of possession in the first quarter but were unable to register the scores their play deserved. As the water break approached Port Mór came more into the game and an Oisin Campbell point on 15 minutes gave Port Mór an unlikely one-point advantage. The second quarter was an impressive period for Port Mór with Ryan Gorman coming to the fore, kicking a co
An Port Mór's Under 7's travelled to Granemore for their first outing of the season. Many of the children in amber and black were having their first day out in a Port Mór jersey. Thanks to Granemore for a sporting encounter and to the parents and coaches for facilitating the game.
Two clubs at the lower end of division 2B face off on Sunday afternoon at O'Neill Park. Just one point separates the teams in this rearranged fixture. These teams played in the 2018 Junior Final with Keady coming out on top, Port Mór finished runners up in the league and both sides were promoted. Indeed Port Mór have numerous links with Keady with two previous managers originating from the South Armagh town. Former Armagh and Keady player Vinny Loughran managed An Port Mór in 2007 and led Port Mór to promotion. Back in 2001, another Keady man Don Commiskey led Port Mór to an Intermediate final against Tír Na ÓG, unfortunately the North Armagh men came out on top. Back to Sunday and it's Kead
An Port Mór 0-9 Clonmore 1-10 A wet and blustery O’Neill Park, An Port Mór was the setting Port Mór faced Clonmore in what was ‘The Friendly Derby.’ Port Mór’s starting line up was minus four starters from their championship outing against Tullysaran but Gary Traynor was back in the starting line-up. The visitors adapted to the horrendous conditions better and built an early three point lead. That lead could have been more as the visitors shooting was poor. Port Mór’s attacks were sporadic and although opportunities were created the home side looked rusty, not having played in four weeks. Port Mór’s opening score came from the boot of Ryan Goran who fired over a forty-five, minutes later ve
The 'Friendly' Derby Just a few miles lie between An Port Mór and Clonmore and the closeness in distance is matched by closeness in rivalry and friendship. No one can forget the 2005 Armagh Junior final when a late Clonmore goal denied An Port Mór championship success. The friendship may be best shown by the fact that the Chairmen of the clubs are cousins; Tony Casey and Gerard Cunningham. In fact Gerard's wife Breda is Chairwoman of the Naomh Mhuire An Port Mór Camogie Club. Former St Jarlaths's Blackwatertown Primary School head master John Donaghy would have taught and indeed coached some of the older Port Mór players, with his son Brendan playing a prominent role in the Clomore team.
