Intermediate Championship Quarter Final Replay*

CLG BnaG 2-10 Naomh Brid 2-7

The Seniors took another step towards promotion with a big two points

over Naomh Brid on Saturday. They didn’t get off to an ideal start

however when shortly after Cathal Mc Gettigan opened the scoring with

a free but the Ballintra men nipped in for a goal after 3 minutes

despite some last ditch blocks from Paddy Peoples and Gary Merritt.

There were few scores in the opening quarter but it was Naomh Brid who

got the next point before Pauric Curley got one for Na Galloglaigh

after 17. Curley was involved again a minute later when he won a

breaking ball off Luke Barrett to set Christopher Barrett away on a

one on one with the keeper and he coolly finished to the bottom

corner. Joey Cullen almost added a second goal a minute after that but

his effort was well saved for a 45. From the resultant 45 McGettigan

took it short to Gavin Grier who put it over the bar to put the blues

2 points up. This was certainly a purple patch for the lads as after

22 Gary Merritt scored a sublime score off his left foot and after 23

Kyle Black scored a lovely point from distance. Na Galloglaigh never

really pushed on from this despite their dominance and it was the

Ballintra men who got the last score of the half to leave it 1-5 to

1-2 at the break. The boys had been wasteful of possession throughout

the half and just hadn’t quite got firing on all cylinders yet. Naomh

Brid got the opening point of the half but this was quickly responded

to by points from Kyle and Chippie before another Brid point on 43.

McGettigan put another point between the sides before scoring a goal

for himself after 45. Substitute Adam Serrinha, who done very well

after replacing Jonny Logue, blocked a clearance before chipping the

ball to McGettigan who didn’t have to break stride before finishing to

the corner. Naomh Brid pointed just before Darragh Black got his name

on the scoresheet but the margin was reduced to just 4 points after 51

minutes when Ballintra ghosted in for a goal. This made for a more

nervy finale then it needed to be as Na Galloglaigh had been on top in

almost all areas of the field. Serrinha found himself through to

almost put 7 between the sides again before his heels were clipped and

a Naomh Brid defender received a black card. Luke Barrett scored the

free to put 5 between the sides. Naomh Brid scored 2 late points but

the 2 points that matter go to Na Galloglaigh who are now 5 points

clear of Burt in second, although they have 2 games in hand. The boys

should have won this game today more comfortably and were well on top

in defence, possession, and chances created, but just lacked that

clinical edge they have shown all year that they are capable of.

Nevertheless a win is a win and thats all that will matter from the

last 2 games of the season either. Next fixture for the boys is away

to Letterkenny Gaels on Sunday 18th October. Team: Sean Gallagher,

Gary Merritt (0-1), Sean Black, Kieran Sheridan, Gavin Grier (0-1),

Enda McHugh, Darragh Black (0-1), Joey Cullen, Luke Barrett (0-1),

Kyle Black (0-2), Pauric Curley (0-1), Jonny Logue, Paddy Peoples,

Cathal McGettigan (1-2) Christopher Barrett (1-1). Subs: Adam Serrinha

for Logue (37m), Tj Evesson, Paul Grier, Kane Barrett, Patrick Ferry


CLG BnaG 2-10 Naomh Brid 3-11

The Reserves hopes of a Division 3 Reserve league title took a big

blow on Saturday when they went down by 4 points to Naomh Brid. They

got off to a great start when Dylan Hegarty found the net after 2

minutes and were well on top in the opening exchanges but didn’t

reflect that on the scoreboard. Naomh Brid scored a goal in the last

minute of normal time in the half to leave just 2 between them at the

half, 1-5 to 1-3. Na Galloglaigh got off to another good start in the

second half when Kieran Gorman got himself a goal after 33 minutes,

but there was an instant reply from Naomh Brid as they went up the

field to score a goal themselves. Again the boys had been playing well

but were guilty of not taking chances. Naomh Brid went ahead after 38

and left Na Galloglaigh with a lot to do when they got their third

goal after 42. With the boys 4 points down and battling hard against a

resilient Ballintra outfit Dean Burgess made himself a great goal in

injury time chance but his effort unfortunately went narrowly wide.

The boys didn’t do themselves justice on the day against a harder

working Naomh Brid side and will be relying on other results to go

their way if they are to win the title. Team: Gavin McFadden, Barry

McNulty, Cormac Friel, Ryan Ferry (0-1), Paul Grier (0-1), Dean

Burgess, Kieran Gorman (1-1), Anthony Fisher (0-1), Caolan Mc Gettigan

(0-3), Paul Fisher (0-2), Luke Trearty, Dylan Hegarty (1-1), Patrick

Ferry. Subs: Emmet Conaghan for McNulty (5m), Caolan Bolton and Ciaran

McHugh for Trearty and Hegarty (HT), Paddy Mc Carron and Martin Doyle

for Conaghan and R. Ferry (40m), Conall McFadden

Senior Men The senior lads left heartbroken after losing out to Naomh

Ultan in the Junior A final replay in Mc Cumhaill Park On Saturday

evening. The Naomh Ultan lads started on the front foot and took the

game to out lads from the first whistle. They were 1-2 to no score up

after only 11 minutes of the first half. The Reds struggled to get

into the game and missed a few chances to get on the score sheet. The

Dunkineely men added another point to go 1-3 to no score ahead. It was

in injury time that the Reds got a life line. A free from Damien

dropped short and fumbled by the full back. Pauric Mc Menamin was

first to react and punched the ball into the net. That was to be the

last action of the first half. Half time score was Red Hughs 1-0 Naomh

Ultan 1-3

The second half was only 4 minutes old when disaster struck once more,

a high ball into the box was not dealt with and ended up falling

kindly to a Dunkineely forward and he finished it to the net to go 2-3

to 1-0 in front again. The Dunkineely men were reduced to 14 men in

the 8th minute of the second half for a second yellow card offence.

The Reds then upped the ante and pushed forward. A point from Damien

Brown and another from Dylan Irwin started the revival. A well taken

goal then from Calvin Bradley narrowed the gap to a single point as

the Reds started to boss the game. With ten minutes to go the game

became stop start with injuries on both sides. This broke the momentum

that the Reds had going. The Naomh Ultan lads scored another point to

open the gap to 2 points. But the Reds kept plugging away Damien

scored a long range point to bring it back to a one point game on the

stroke of 30 minutes played. With 4 minutes injury time to play it was

frantic stuff. Three minutes into injury Johnny Carlin scored the best

point of the game knocking over a long range point from the outside of

his left foot to tie the game up. Naomh Ultan had one last attack and

earned themselves a 45 that was struck over by there centre half back.

The Dunkineely lads one the kick out and held the ball until the

referee sounded the final whistle to break the hearts of the Red Hughs

lads. The Final Score was Red Hughs 2-5 Naomh Ultan 2-6.

Aodh Ruadh bounced back from IFC elimination it ideal fashion with a

resounding 5-19 to 3-5 league win over Urris. A comprehensive win and

an impressive performance from Aodh Ruadh. In defence Niall Harley

shone from the start, with Calum ‘Cookie’ O’Halloran also making good

use of the ball. Nathan Boyle continued his good form from the IFC

semi-final here with an acrobatic, all-action display of fetching,

kicking and prompting. Diarmaid McInerney was on fire and was good

value for his hat trick haul. Seamus Kane, Sticky Ward and David

McGurrin made life a pure misery for the Urris defence, finishing with

2-7 between them and creating about the half as much again for others.

We have a full match report and pictures from the game up

Packie McGrath will be looking for his men to maintain the momentum

Our Ballyshannon Shoe Company Indoor Winter Leagues got off to a

rip-roaring start on Friday last with 36 under 8s giving it their all

in the new hall at Coláiste Cholmcille. The Saints top the league

after the first set of round robins, but it’s still very much all to

play for this Friday on the final night of the under 8 league. We are

playing from 6pm to 8pm with the second set of round robins followed

by shield semi-final and final and then the cup final. Medals and

trophies presented afterwards. Because we will be in the hall for two

hours each night there will be a charge of €4 per head to cover the

cost of the hall. Please bring your own water and wear runners as no

other footwear allowed. Remember, great quality footwear available at

our indoor league sponsors, Ballyshannon Shoe Company! The under 10

and under 12 indoor leagues will work on a similar format with the

under 10 league running off on Friday October 23rd and Friday October

30th, while the under 12 league will take place on Friday 6th November

and Friday 13th November. We have some pictures from last Friday’s

action in the league up in the image gallery.

There is a Bord na nÓg meeting on Wednesday 14th October. This will be

our last monthly meeting before our AGM, so a big turnout is requested

from all committee members.


Aodh Ruadh under 13 girls booked their place in the county final

against Saint Eunan’s with a late late show against Buncrana in Father

Tierney Park last Saturday. The Shamettes got off to the perfect start

with shooting star Bridín Maguire hitting the net. Aodh Ruadh were on

top for long periods of the half and there were further first half

goals from Eimear O’Brien and Roisín Daly as Aodh Ruadh went in at the

break leading 3-2 to 2-0. However the Inishowen girls upped the ante

significantly after the interval. They raided for two quick goals

before poaching their fifth of the day as Ballyshannon pressed to pull

back the deficit. After that the Shamettes peppered the Buncrana goals

with shots, but the Inishowen side put on a magnificent rearguard

action and it looked very much like Aodh Ruadh were going to draw a

blank from this tie. However with five minutes left Bridín Maguire hit

a brilliant individual goal before bravely winning the penalty which

put Ballyshannon back in front. After that the floodgates opened and

the scores flowed for Aodh Ruadh. Roisín Daly and Ella Clancy added

further goals as Buncrana were reeling. That scoring spree proved

important as Buncrana hit a further 1-2 in the six minutes of added

time to show their fighting qualities. Bridín Maguire was Aodh Ruadh’s

player of the game with an outstanding attacking display, but this was

a win built around the defence and midfield Leah Travers, Síofra

Hughes, Lucy McGlynn, Aisling Gallagher and Caitlin McGarrigle were

all superb in defence while the midfield pairing of Ella Clancy and

Caoimhe Keon covered every blade of grass on the pitch in an immense

display. Up front Bridín Maguire got great help from Eimear O’Brien

and Katie O’Brien . The county final will be this coming weekend, but

at the time of writing we still had no firm information on day, venue

or time.


Best of luck to Coláiste Cholmcille senior hurlers who are up against

a strong Coláiste Fierste team in the Casement Shield quarter-final in

the Tyrone Centre of Excellence at Garvaghey this Thursday.

Michael’s Scor Officer Nikita Doherty on 0872668252.

Scór is a GAA competition that combines all the colour and rivalry of

Gaelic Games with the social/fun element of Ireland’s traditional

past-times. The competition was established by the GAA in 1969 with

the aim of promoting Ireland’s traditional pastimes and culture while

offering club members the chance to meet up, have fun and represent

their club during the winter months while Football and Hurling had


There are eight events/disciplines in Scór that cover all aspects of

Irish culture: Figure/Céilí Dancing, Solo Singing, Instrumental Music,

Recitation/Scéalaíocht, Ballad Group, Novelty Act, Question Time and

Set Dancing. The competition is divided into two age levels, Scór Na

nÓg, for young people under 17 and Scór Sinsear, for those over 17.

Just like the All-Ireland Football and Hurling Championships clubs

taking part in Scór must first take part in a county championship. The

winners go on to the provincial championship and then the All-Ireland


It is interesting to note the All Ireland Scór champions are presented

with their medals by the President of the GAA, winners are All-Ireland

Champions in their own right in the same way as All-Ireland Senior

Ba iad Réalt na Mara, Bun Dobhrán, na cuairteoirí go Páirc Naomh

Fionán Dé Sathairn seo chaite. Bhí an bhuaidh ag foireann tacaíochta

Chloich Cheann Fhaolo 4-07 |0-02.

Bhí foireann laídir ag Bun Dobhráin sa chluiche shinsireach. Ní raibh

mórán idir na foirne sa chéad leath. Ach thug Réalt na Mara

taispeántas breá sa dara leath agus bhain said 2-12|1-08.

It was a top of the table clash as Cloughaneely hosted Realt Na Mara

at Páirc Naomh Fionán on Saturday evening last; however it was the

intermediate finalists who clinched the coveted 2 points. The first

half progressed on a point for point basis with the score ending all

square at the half time whistle at 5 points apiece. Shaun McGarvey

contributing 4 points to Cloughaneely’s first half tally, with John

Fitzgerald clinching their 5th. Christy Keaney and Tommy Hourihan were

the sharp shooters for the visitors in the opening half.

The 2nd half proved to be a much different affair with Bundoran making

their intention clear from throw-in; which saw the ball find its way

to star player Jamie Brennan who expertly put away Bundoran’s first

goal of the game. Bundoran drove forward from that point and, thanks

the duo of Keaney and Hourihan, rattled over an additional 5 points

without response. Despite some great defensive work from

Cloughaneely’s Ciaran McGeady and some great runs from substitute

Ciaran McFadden, Cloughaneely failed to have their 2nd half efforts

registered on the scoreboard until the 49th minute thanks to a Darren

McGeever free; which was quickly followed up by a point from Eugene

McGuire. In the 22nd minute a Cloughaneely ball found its way into the

goal mouth and, amidst a flurry of black and amber jerseys,

Cloughaneely’s Paul Sweeney managed to get a touch to the ball to

guide it into the net to register a much needed goal for Cloughaneely.

Darren Ferry hit the home-sides final point of the game in the 25th

minute. Bundoran’s 2nd half scoring frenzy had not yet come to an end

and the final 5 minutes saw Jamie Brennan contribute an additional

goal after another great run as well as adding a 2nd point to his

tally. A final point from Paul Brennan was slotted over just before

the full time whistle.

CCF: Shaun McClafferty, Cian McFadden, Kevin McFadden, Ciaran McGeady,

game in Tír Cónaill. Local man and former club player Michael Murphy

manages the Kilbeggan team and was delighted to play his home club in

a game. Thanks goes to Ian McKenna, John Sinclair and the U14 players

for helping ensure game the game happened at short notice.

U16 Boys Football

The U16’s lost out to MacCumhaills 4-13 to 0-11 on Sunday morning in

the County Semi Final in St Mary’s Convoy. The lads didn’t perform to

their capabilities which was the biggest disappointment on the day. A

physically strong MacCumhaills team scored a number of goals and

points from turnovers and mistakes in the first half which left us

chasing the game. Best performers on the day for were Bryan Fegan at

fullback who won the ball ahead of his man on numerous occasions, Ben

Sweeney in the full forward line who did well when the ball was kicked

inside and Colum McDonnell who tried hard throughout. Thanks goes to

all the players, coaches Enda Bonner and Aidan McGroary for their

continued hard work and commitment throughout the year.

Pauric Harvey (U16 manager)

Reserves win well

The reserves didn’t let the disappointment of last week’s championship

county semi-final defeat linger too long producing a strong league

victory against Glenswilly on Saturday. Both squads had players

unavailable so it was a chance for others to shine. Two players in

particular demonstrated to the home team management that maybe they

should have been in the championship team last week, these being Ray

Balougan who had a storming game demonstrating his pace, power and

score-taking to notch 3 very good points. Ryan Muldoon also hit

formscoring six points from wing-forward; 3 placed balls and 3 from

play. However, this was an all-round team performance with Charlie

Gallagher patrolling the defence Conor Rooney and Darren Walsh

controlling midfieldand all six forwards testing the opposition at

every opportunity. Special mention must go to our goalkeeper and

captain on the day Paul Cannon who has had a great season with the

Reserves with his shot-stopping, assuredness under the high ball and

diversity of kick-outs impressive. Glenswilly, with one eye on the

Reserve Championship county final, kept going until the end, but it

was the Masters day.

Paddy Muldoon (Reserve coach)

Seniors defeat Glenswilly

Four Masters 4.13 Glenswilly 0.06

Four Masters collected 2 valuable league points on Saturday evening

with a convincing win against Glenswilly. Both teams were missing a

number of regulars but served up an excellent game, which wasn’t

decided until the final quarter, when Four Masters scored 2-08 without


Michael Doherty and Sean o’Kennedy were early on the scoring register

with 1-03 between them before Oisin Crawford opened the visitors

account. On 15 minutes an excellent counter attack from Four Masters

resulted in Danny McGarrigle squaring to the busy Sean Meehan to fist

to the net and open a comfortable lead of 2-03 to 0-01 for Four

Masters. Meehan was to go on and have an excellent game. Glenswilly

then responded with 3 on the bounce from Gerard McGrenra, Conor Harkin

and Caolan McFadden, with Michael Doherty also adding to his tally.

Half time 2-04 to 0-04.

Gerard McGrenra was having a great battle with Barry Monaghan and set

up Brian Farrelly to reduce the deficit to 5. Philip O’Donnell had

left his net minding duties at half time to move to the opposite

square and pointed a free after Michael Doherty had added another.

This however was to be Glenswillys final contribution as Four Masters

gave one of their better performances of the season to score 8 points

without reply, added to by 2 goals from Michael Doherty and Dillon


A good all round performance from Four Masters with Ryan Haughey in

particular making some excellent saves to keep another clean sheet.

Conor Breslin, after shining in the reserve game made his senior debut

which will no doubt be one of many senior outings in years to come.

Gerard McGrenra proved that he is still an intelligent player and was

assisted by Leon Kelly and Joe Gibbons in giving good performances for

the visitors.

in the league. Throw-in at 5pm.


The senior team created history at O’Donnell Park on Sunday afternoon

when they reached the Intermediate Final for the first time in the

club’s history. A tremendous performance throughout the match gave the

lads a deserved victory with an 11 point margin at the end.

Michael Lynch got the Red and Whites off to a great start in the

opening minute with a point from a 45. Fanad’s first effort resulted

in a wide, and Naomh Colmcille followed suit with a couple of wides of

their own. A long range Michael Lynch free after a foul on Gerard

Curran doubled the advantage. The next Fanad attack ended with another

wayward shot. Willie Gillespie went on a probing run towards goal, but

Mark Dowds was unable to convert the pass from a very tight angle.

Eddie Gillespie was off target with an effort but was to make amends

later in the half. The next effort came to his brother William who got

a touch to the ball to knock it past Paul O’Connor in the Fanad goals,

only for a defender to get back to clear the ball before it had

crossed the line. Joe Donaghy got Naomh Colmcille’s third point midway

through the half, when he scored a pointed free after he had been

fouled. Another wide was registered for Naomh Colmcille before a

lengthy delay due to an injury to one of the Fanad players. Michael

Lynch stroked over another long range free on resumption of play

before Fanad Gaels finally raised a white flag in the 22nd minute.

Another pointed free from Joe Donaghy and a point from Mark Dowds left

the score at 0-1 to 0-6 in favour of Naomh Colmcille. Ryan McKinley

won possession and Eddie Gillespie surged through the heart of the

Fanad Gaels defence before firing an unstoppable shot to the net in

the 25th minute. Fanad Gaels scored the final three points of the

half, with another wide for Naomh Colmcille, leaving the score at the

interval Fanad Gaels 0-4 1-6 Naomh Colmcille.

A foul on Mark Dowds gave Joe Donaghy another opportunity with a free

at the start of the second half, and Joe duly obliged to extend the

lead to 6 points. Fanad wasted two placed ball opportunities before

good play involving Willie Gillespie gave Joe Donaghy a scoring chance

and he wisely fisted a point from a tight angle. Gary McDaid made a

fine save to deny Fanad Gaels although a point resulted from the

follow-up play. Joe Donaghy replied with another point. A Fanad

pointed free was followed soon after by a Willie Gillespie point from

a Michael Friel pass. The next Naomh Colmcille effort was waved wide.

Fanad then got in for a goal to reduce the deficit to 4 points with 9

minutes remaining. The next Naomh Colmcille free was short, but any

Fanad Gaels hopes of a comeback similar to last week were extinguished

when Mark Dowds fired to the roof of the net as the game approached

full time, sending the Red and White army wild in expectation of a

first final appearance at the grade. There was still time for Don

Hegarty to add a point, and another wide to be registered, before

Conor Grant delivered the final blow with Naomh Colmcille’s third goal

in stoppage time.

Full time score Fanad Gaels 1-6 3-11 Naomh Colmcille.

So Naomh Colmcille have an Intermediate final against Bundoran to look

forward to in two weeks time, and it was a case of third time lucky

having failed at the semi-final stage twice in recent years. Great

credit goes to all the players and management for the outstanding

performance in the replay, pushing on right from the first whistle to

the last to ensure success. Well done also to all the supporters for

getting behind the lads in such great numbers at O’Donnell Park
