TAG SEVENS COMETITON
The annual tag sevens competition ran on New Year’s Eve with huge success. Over 45 Men and woman took part in the event which seen Joe McBride and Ciara Hegarty’s team run out eventual winners over Maurice Harkins fiercely competitive side in the final. The games were played in great spirit and friendly banter. We look forward to seeing even more faces at next year’s event. We also would like to give a special thanks to Seamus Hegarty on organising the event and anyone who helped out on the day.
The club would like to congratulate senior player Malachy McDermott who made his inter county debut for Donegal against Derry in the Dr. McKenna cup last Sunday in Owenbeg. We wish Malachy the best of luck in the coming weeks and hope he can make an impact on the county stage.
