Ulster Intermediate Championship Quarter Final- Celtic Park Derry- Sunday November 3rd.
Foreglen O'Brien's (Doire) v Naomh Muire (Dún na nGall).
It is with great pride and honour that Danny O'Donnell and the lads will represent both club and county in this Ulster Championship Intermediate Championship match in the famous Celtic Park Derry.
Foreglen O'Brien's were founded in 1888 making them one of the first GAA clubs in Ireland and playing this 125 year old club means that we are playing a club steeped in History. By comparison Naomh Muire - founded in 1980 are one of Donegal's youngest clubs although we too are proud of our history and growth.
This will be a great day in Derry and as the team are prepared for this Ulster clash - we now start the off field efforts to get the crowds out to Celtic Park for the big match. One thing that many are talking about since the win in Letterkenny was the huge Naomh Muire support and we also know that the team felt that as well throughout the game. This will be a tough match against a strong Foreglen side but with a strong support and the lads taking recent form into the match.....anything is possible on the day.
Updates re transport, directions etc will be posted in the run up to the trip to Derry.
NAOMH MUIRE ABÚ
The seniors and reserves are back in league action this weekend (Saturday 5th) with a trip away to Termon. The reserves throw in at 4pm and the seniors are on at 5:30pm.
The updated league run-in is shown below....
The division 2 league is now coming to a interesting conclusion with all teams having 3 or less games to play. Bundoran and Glenfin have the advantage of all home games for the run in whereas Buncrana and Cloich Cheann Fhaola will be on the road for their final games. League leaders, Glenswilly have three tough games, one at home and two away; one of which includes a trip to the Banks. Second placed Termon will entertain Naomh Muire at the Burn road as well as facing a trip to Glenswilly in what may be a league decider. Third place Dungloe face the bottom two sides at home as well as a trip south to Bundoran.
Following our own league game tomorrow in Bundoran we have the top and bottom side in the league, both at home, as well as a trip to second placed Termon. Mac Cumhaills play bottom of the table Buncrana at home as well as completing the return leg of the derby in Glenfin.
As we have seen throughout the league there is nothing easy and as we close in on the end of the league all teams will be out to take maximum points from there remaining games which should make for an interesting run in to this year's league.
Below is the current table (14/09/13) following tonight's two league games. This will be updated following tomorrow's game in Bundoran.
Following the success in getting into the Intermediate Final last week,the lads travel to Bundoran tomorrow for a very important league match against Bundoran. Two important league points will be the reward for victory and would place the lads another notch up the table.
There are a few injuries but this can also create opportunities for really good fringe players to come in and perform their way into the side. With the panel stronger than earlier in the year and playing well of late Naomh Muire should be confident of going and taking the points against what will be tough but not impossible to beat opposition. On their day the Lads have shown they are a match and beyond for any side in the league and a big performance tomorrow will have us coming back from South Donegal with points.
The reserves are on at 1.30pm hoping to continue good league form and to continue the development of up and coming players in the reserve set up which has been impressive.
Beidh an foireann sinsearach ag imirt in éadan Aodh Ruadh, Béal Átha Seanaidh an Domhnach (08/09/13) seo i mBéalach Féich. Ádh mór ar an fhoireann bainistíocht agus na gasúraí uilig.
Intermediate Championship Semi Final
Naomh Muire v Aodh Ruadh @ 3:00
The other semi final between Naomh Naille and Naomh Columba is being played in Fintra this evening.
The Banks hosts the important Div 2 league match between the Rosses neighbours this Sunday. Dungloe who are sitting in a strong promotion play-off position will come to the Banks with more experience and physical strength and with a forward still remembered as one of the County greats in Adrian Sweeney alongside current County squad member Adrian Hanlon. They will be a tough side to beat and a win will push them closer to a Division 1 spot.
Naomh Muire however will be in no mood to come out second best in what will be a big crowd match on a pitch that is in top condition. Our boys have upped their game in the past month and they will very much look forward to this game with the pressure totally on Dungloe. A good performance by our lads is the aim and with Dungloe strong favourites to take both points and go and win promotion. Naomh Muire will take recent form into the match and see where it takes them.
All the talk and build-up at the end of it all results in two league points just like any other match so the hype shouldn't really come into it.
Reserve match is a 12.30pm throw in with the Senior game at 2pm. Good luck to players and Management....just give it everything you have, no one can ask for more than that.
The Intermediate championship semi final between Naomh Muire and Aodh Ruadh has been fixed for 3pm on Sunday 8th September in MacCumhaill park.
Buncrana v Naomh Muire - Div 2 league on Sunday in Buncrana.
Throw in of matches have been changed to 12.30pm reserves match and 2pm Seniors.
This is to allow for players and supporters to watch the Live TV Mayo v Tyrone match.
Naomh Muire v Glenfin - Following the success in the Intermediate Championship on Sunday last- it's back to the all-important league duty on Sunday with a home game against Glenfin led by current All-Star Frank McGlynn.
The recent turnaround in the Championship which showed both character and attitude when needed along with an injection of pace with Minors coming into the side....has been nothing short of impressive. It would be a great boost to take that recent form into the league which is very probable especially at home where they have been able to turn the screw on many sides over the years. Two points in what is going to be a tough league end would be a great reward for the recent efforts on the road. You just get the feeling that there is a spring back in the squad and a return to early season form which saw them fear no team in this league. This is a great time to be hitting form and whereas Glenfin are always a tough side - the reverse fixture in Glenfin saw leave Naomh Muire leave in a game they should have got a point at least. With every game both in league and Championship of high importance from now until October- Sunday is both a great test and opportunity. Home advantage, good recent form continuing, a burst of young lads full of energy, a strong home support as always could all be pointing to a Naomh Muire victory on Sunday and we wish the entire team and management all the very best.
Reserve match at 1.30pm - Seniors at 3pm - spread the word and get the big numbers of support out.
