Club Notes – Naomh Adhamhnáin – 13.02.12
Thanks to everyone that helped out on Sunday as we hosted the NFL Div. 1 game between Donegal and Laois. Unfortunately the result didn’t go Donegal’s way on Sunday. Well done to Vincent McGlynn and his team that had every aspect covered in their preparations, the Park looked great for the 12th of February.
The Senior Hurlers continued their good run in the Ulster League at the weekend when they travelled to Blacklion and came away with a good victory over Wolfe Tones on a score of 1-11 to 1-05. Congratulations to Colm Breathnach on his recent Lory Meagher All-Star Award.
Comhghairdeas le na hiomaitheoirí go léir as an chlub a ghlac páirt i mbabhta leath cheannais na contae de scór sinsir i nGleann t-Súilí oíche Shatharn. The balled group gave an excellent performance and qualified for the county final along with the instrumental group and in solo singing, Seán Feeney gave an excellent rendition of “The Maid of Culmore” to also book his place in the final. The club also took part in Tráth na gCesit but Brian McGeehin, Seán Dunne and Hugo Dorrian unfortunately missed out on a qualifying place. The county final is scheduled to take place in Gleann t-Súilí on Saturday 25th February at 7.30pm. Ádh mór ar na hiomaitheoirí uilig as Namoh Adhamhnáin a bhéas ag glacadh páirt sna comórtais Bailéad Ghrúpa, Ceol Uirlise agus Amhránaíocht Aonair i gcraobh cheannais na contae de scór sinsir. A great night is assured at the final so why not go along and support our competitors.
