The club coaching week will take place next week from Tuesday 2nd August - Friday 5th August. We are glad to run this camp in conjunction with Tradalaí Eisc Uí Hannagain Teoranta who have come on board and will sponsor a t-shirt for each child that attends the camp. This support is greatly appreciated and helps us to keep improving our camps for the children in the area.See the Bord na nÓg section of the website for full details.
The Minors will play Ardara in the banks this friday evening with a throw-in time of 7.30. The minors can still qualify for the league final depending on the result of this game.
Due to Donegal playing in Croke Park on Saturday, Under 10 training will take place this Friday evening in the banks at 6.30 instead of Saturday morning.
The U-16 girls will have their second outing in the league next week when they take on Cloich Cheann Fhaola in the banks. The girls had a good victory against Gaoth Dobhair a few weeks ago and so will be hoping to carry that good form into the league. The game throws in at 7pm.
The final two games in their section will be against Naomh Conaill and Naomh Micheal (times and dates yet to be decided).
The ladies lost out by a single goal in Dungloe tonight (27/07/2011). As the scoreline shows our odessey in the championship came to an end tonight in Rosses park, Dungloe. While Glenties proved to be that wee bit stronger than us, we never gave up the chase and could have sneaked a victory at the end.The young girls showed great pride in the jersey and went down pushing for a win, we can only think if we had five minutes more. While the championship is over we must change tack now and push on in the league for a play off position. Two games left to play and leading our section its on the cards to be in the playoffs. Be proud of yourselves tonight Ladies, fighting spirit untill the end.

Naomh Muire just came up short in what was a rip roaring end to end game. It finished all square after normal time with Naomh Muire equalising in the final minutes to send the game into extra time. This young side battled hard all throughout the game and had they taken a few more of their chances the result may have been different. In the end only a goal seperated the teams so well done to the players and management for a great effort. Most of this team will still be U-21 next year and so they will only build from this and be stronger next year.
Aodh Ruadh won last night's (25/07/2011) Divisional final in Dungloe. The Ballyshannon side played the better football on the night and dominated key areas while our lads just simply didnt get the breaks when they were needed. Aodh Ruadh scored their first goal against the run of play and whereas Naomh Muire matched them in open play at times......we hit the post, had a penalty claim turned down and missed several easy scores within ten minutes......all of which were needed against a strong Aodh Ruadh side.
Naomh Muire rallied back near the end of the first half and into the second half but the crucial couple of goals required just could not be found. Sometimes you have to say hats off to an opposition in full flow and watching Aodh Ruadh play the ball out of defence was top drawer stuff. Overall a combination of this together with it simply not being our lads night meant that the result was never in doubt with 15 mins to go.
This may have another chapter however. Naomh Mhuire are still in the County Semi-final against Northern Champions McCumhaills. When the young lads lick their wounds and get back to training this week...they will now realise that they came within a minute of beating this fine Aodh Ruadh side last week....and that along with recent performances against Kilcar and Ardara will stand to them. The players,management, club and its supporters will be ready for this semi-final clash wherever or whenever it is on.
No luck lads.....you've done us proud up to now and its not over yet.
Thanks to Bríd Sweeney all the action was captured and is now available in the Gallery.
