Hard luck to the Donegal Senior footballers in their defeat to Cork in Croke Park on Sunday in the Division 1 semi-final clash against Cork.
Mixed emotions for the Donegal Hurlers in their draw against Tyrone on Saturday. The team has to do it all over again in a replay in order to avoid relegation. There was solid displays from Jamsie Donnelly, Del Laverty and Lee Henderson. Best of luck in the replay at the weekend.
Senior Team Football Result:
A weakened Sean Mac Cumhaill’s team travelled to St. Mary’s in Convoy to take on Termon on Saturday evening. With both clubs unbeaten in their first two outings this was sure to be a thrilling game.

On Thursday they made the short trip to the crossroads to take on Red Hugh’s in the fifth round game. Mac Cumhaills ended up comfortable winners and maintain a 100% record in the league; this game was played in a sporting nature against a very young Red Hughs team.

U-14 Hurling Result:
Our u14’s had two league games in the past week with home games against Ballyshannon and Dungloe.

The hurlers then continued where they left off on Tuesday evening with another outstanding victory against favourites Dungloe on Thursday night in St. Columba’s. The lads came out winners on a scoreline of Sean Mac Cumhaill’s 7-10 Dungloe 0.04. They have a break now until their next game on Thursday which is an away trip to Setanta.
