Our seniors produced a superb fight back to defeat Gweedore in the All County League on Sunday in a wet and windy Connolly Park.
Early in the second half we trailed by 4 points but 2 Brendan Mc Laughlin (F) goals turned the game and we held out for a comfortable 2-9 to 0-11 win over a Gweedore side which featured 3 current Donegal members and a host of county minor players.
The win lifts us to 5th place in the league on 15 points with just 3 games left to play.
Our reserves were beaten 3-7 to 0-5 by a more experienced and physically stronger Gweedore outfit
Best wishes to our Under 16s who take on Red Hughs in Connolly Park on Tuesday evening. Throw in at 6-00. All support welcome.
In the curtain raiser to the Gweedore games on Sunday, our under 10 and 12s took on the Castletown club from Co Meath.

We would like to extend our appreciation to the Castletown mentors and players for making the long journey and especially to Michael Doherty (Owen) who helped organise the trip.
