Naomh Conaill Notes 14th September 2010

The seniors and reserves had victories at home to St Eunans in the league last Sunday. The seniors won 2-8 to 0-12 and this victory guarantees they stay in Div 1 for next year and the reserves won 2-8 to 1-9. The seniors next game is the Co Final against Killybegs on Sunday 3rd October. The reserves are home to Ardara this Saturday in the league at 4.30pm. The 3rds are also at home this Saturday and they play Glenfin at 6pm.

The Club, in conjunction with the Glenties Harvest Fair Festival Committee staged a very successful and competitive tournament on Saturday 11th September. A feast of football was served up by the A and B players from Ardara, Dungloe, Killybegs and Naomh Conaill. The ‘A’ competition was an epic battle with three teams Dungloe, Killybegs and Naomh Conaill finishing all square on points at the finish. Instead of deciding the winner on scoring difference a draw was made that resulted in Killybegs defeating Dungloe in a play-off game. The stage was then set for a Killybegs V Naomh Conaill final and this was won convincingly by a well drilled Killybegs side. Well done Daffy!.

The ‘B’ tournament was won comfortably by the home side Naomh Conaill, winning all their games and ending a very successful year for this group of players.

Well done to all the children and their mentors and a big thank you as always to the ladies who once again looked after the catering and to our referee’s Ronan, Damien and Hughie.

The club now have a wide range of merchandise on sale in Mc Glincheys.

The new club website is now up and running and you can access the site it by logging on to naomhconaill.ie.

Alternative routes will be via Alter and Mullantyboyle.

Monday 13th of Sept. ’10
No traffic through the town from 8am until 9pm. A one-way system will be in operation during this time.

Traffic approaching town from Ardara direction will be diverted at Connaghans Hardware Store via Mullantyboyle.

We would ask all locals to assist us by using this one way system the same as a large roundabout and NOT to attempt to go against the flow of traffic.

We would also ask all businesses to avoid having deliveries made on the 13th, as the plan is to keep HGV traffic to a minimum on the Fair day. Please advise all HGV users to avoid Glenties on the 13th of Sept.

While we appreciate that this is an inconvenience for locals, your cooperation with the flow of traffic will greatly assist us in keeping the main street free of traffic for the Fair day and thank you for your cooperation.
