Tir Chonaill's masters and juvenile teams were in sparkling form when Round 1 of the Donegal CC championships, hosted by Finn Valley , took place in glorious sunshine last Sunday.
The womens Masters 50 team led by Marie Rooney and supported by Margaret Sweeney and Jackie Harvey were crowned champions ahead of Omagh Harriers.
Not to be outdone, the Mens 50 team led by Richard McCarthy with scoring support from Donal Haughey, Ollie Thomas and John Cannon, were crowned champions ahead of Letterkenny AC. The Mens 35 team led by Paul Ward, finished just outside the team medals in 4th position. Congrats and well done to all
