A season with two cups and a three near misses means it was an excellent campaign, but it could have been a truly historic one.

The Castle Avenue side produced a thrilling comeback win to beat North County and capture the Senior Cup, while they retained their T20 crown, proving very adept at the game's shortest format.

They lost out to Merrion though in the league race, while a John Anderson inspired Merrion pipped them in a thrilling Irish Senior Cup encounter.

They were one hit away from beating Waringstown in the All-Ireland T20 final, but Bill Coghlan's heroics were ultimately in vain.

It was Coghlan who topped the batting averages hitting two of the club's three senior hundreds on his way to 796 runs at 41.89, also scoring six 50's.

Overseas professional Obus Pienaar scored the other hundred as he made 644 runs at 49.54, as he passed the 50 mark five times as well.

Former Irish international Andrew Poynter made 398 runs at 33.17 - three 50's -, while Declan Gallagher hit 379 runs at just over 21.

Sameer Dutt topped the bowling charts claiming 35 wickets at 16.74, just ahead of Shariful Islam who took 34 wickets at a fraction less.

Also passing the 20 mark were Obus Pienaar (29), Conor Kelly (27) and David Delany (25).

A formidable bowling unit, while skipper Joe Morrissey played a vital role in keeping things tight - he had the best economy rate, although only took 13 wickets.

There's no doubt Clontarf will be there or thereabouts once again in 2019, and if a team can finish above them they won't be too far away from major honours.
