The tired legs of 8 weeks football on the trot finally got the better of them. Nevertheless we are immensely proud of their efforts this year in bringing the Dr. Maguire back to O’Donnell Park once again. Thanks to Maxi and all the players for giving us a brilliant year.Well done to Dowdsy and the Reserves on Saturday, they showed great composure in the final replay to bring the trophy to O’Donnell Park after a 6 year gap. After a couple of near misses during his first spell in charge, it was a great reward for manager Paul O’Dowd, Noel and all the players. Not to be outdone, the U13 girls turned in a great display against Moville in their county final on Saturday at the splendid Coláiste Ailigh pitch to run out winners by 6-04 to 2-07. The girls led by 9 at half-time and maintained that advantage at the final whistle. Every time the Moville girls got a score in the 2nd half, the girls marched up the field and answered with a score of their own.The Minor boys are back in championship action this Sunday (23rd) when they meet Gaoth Dobhair in the Northern Championship Final in Glenswilly at 12:30pm.
