Well done to the senior team who have reached the Co semi final beating Ardara in extra time 1-13 to 1-11 after both teams served up another riveting championship encounter in Letterkenny last Sunday evening. The two teams deserve great credit for the sporting way they played the game over the 2 days. They now meet Kilcar in the semi final this Sunday at 3pm in Donegal Town.

Our U10 team performed very well in the annual Desi Hill Memorial U10 tournament hosted by the St. Teresa’s Club in Belfast last Saturday. They won their group in convincing fashion overcoming Cushendall Ruairi Ogs (Antrim), Eoghan Rua’s (Tyrone) and Gort na Mona (Antrim). In the quarter-final they were pitted against old adversaries, Carryduff from Down and emerged victorious after a tough encounter with a two point winning margin. In the semi-final they had a more comfortable win over Coleraine from Derry. The final was an all Donegal affair between ourselves and St Eunans and in a very competitive game it was the Letterkenny lads who shaded it at the final whistle by the narrowest of margins. A big thank you to the U10 coaches and the parents of the children for transporting the children to Belfast, as these inter county, club tournaments are very benificial to the youngsters ongoing development. We also wish to sincerely thank Niall Gallagher who kindly sponsored a meal for the U10s on their journey home.
Well done to Ethan O’Donnell who was the Club winner of the U12 Skills Competition.
