Club Notes – Naomh Adhamhnáin – 01.08.11
Congratulations to Rory and Kevin and to Jim McGuiness and his backroom team on steering Donegal to an All-Ireland SFC semi-final meeting with the winner of the Tyrone v Dublin clash this weekend.
It looks like the Senior Championship will go ahead this weekend with the lads meeting neighbours Glenswilly in the quarter final on Sunday in Ballybofey with throw-in time to be confirmed.
The Reserves will probably have their 1st round play-off with Dungloe this weekend as well, possibly as a curtain raiser to the Senior quarter final.
The Juniors will learn this week if they have been awarded their 1st round play-off match against Downings by the CCC after the Downings team failed to show up for the match in Termon last week.
The U-14 Boys got their Championship campaign off to a good start with a comprehensive win over Burt in the first round.
The U-14 Div. 2 team lost their Shield semi-final to a strong Buncrana team.
There are no underage football fixtures during the first week of August.
This Saturday, we will host the 1st Rd. Championship play-off double header between Ardara and Cloughaneely with throw-in times to be confirmed. All available stewards are asked to be at the Park an hour before the Reserve game throw-in.
The U16 Hurlers had no game last Thursday when Strabane conceded. They now play Carndonagh at home this Thursday in the League. The U12 hurlers had a fine win over Carndonagh last week and they are away to Strabane this Thursday. Well done to Gareth Mc Gill and Prionsais O Lionnain who represented the club on the County U16 hurling team in Belfast last week recording good wins over Down and Armagh.
The U12 Camogie blitz was held in Donegal town last friday with the girls defeating Burt and losing out to Donegal Town and Carndonagh. Camogie fixtures for August include 12th for U10’s in Burt, the 13th for the U14s Ulster Blitz, the 19th for the U12s in Ballybofey and finally the 26th for the U12s in Burt. The camogie referee course for adults & young whistlers has been postponed. If you wish to attend the course please contact Gavin Craig.
