Gaeil Fhánada 1:09 v An Clochan Liath 1:11 in Pairc Uí Siail in Portsalon last Saturday evening.
A goal for Dungloe in the first minute put our boys under pressure from the start followed by Adrian Sweeney scoring a long range free.
Mark Sparky Friel got Gaeil Fhánada’s first point of the game in 2nd minute. Seami ‘Nanny’ Friel was unlucky hitting the crossbar followed by fine points from Ryan McGonigle and Jimmy Coyle. Johnny ‘Nanny’ Friel scored Fanad’s only goal of the game from a great pass from his wee brother Seami. Seami scored another point from a long range free, levelling the game on 20th minute. Fergal ‘Sharkey’ Friel was harshly shown the first black card 25 minutes into the game. Three more black cards were given in the second half, Dungloe’s Shaun Sharkey and Adrian Hanlon and Fanad’s Oisin Shiels. After both sides kicking few wides Seami & Mark ‘Nanny’ and Seimi ‘Coshia’ Friel scored fine points but Dungloe kept ahead to narrowly win the game.

The race begins at a pillar near the main road exit to Páirc Ui Shiadhail. The runners turn left at the exit and proceed in the direction of Portsalon Cross Roads. At the crossroads the route turns up what is known locally as ‘Carr’s Brae’ and continues on that road. The route takes a right turn into Corry at Andrew Gibbons house and continues through the town land of Corry downhill through the ‘back burn’. At the junction below Sweeney’s the runners take a right turn in the direction of Portsalon along the Corry Bog road, straight through the crossroads, turning right into the GAA grounds. The 5k finish line is located directly outside the clubhouse gates. For anyone interested in running the route the kilometre, start and finish marks are discreetly marked on the road in green paint.
