In their first outing of the year a depleted third team produced a determined display against an extremely strong Glenswilly side. They battled well and never lay down and kept battling right until the final whistle. This was a learning experience for the third team players and management, and a lot of positives will be taken from this game. Glenswilly 0- 12 Seán Mac Cumhaills 0-3.
The under-14 ladies had their first game of the league campaign with an away game to play Four Masters on Sunday morning after our first game against Ardara was postponed due to the weather. In breezy conditions the girls went in a goal up at half time in their favour and continued to battle hard in the second hard but with the extra competitive game time behind them their opponents had just enough to tip the scales in their favour. The girls lost out in the end unfortunately by a late goal.

Well done to our minor team on winning the Northern Board Division Two League quarter final last week against Glenswilly; in what was a highly entertaining encounter. It was quite a low scoring first half with the score 0-3 to 0-2 leading up to the half time whistle. Ciaran McFadden and Michael McHugh (2) scoring the Cloughaneely points. Ciaran McFadden, who had an outstanding game scored a goal to send Cloughaneely in 1-3 to 0-2 at halftime. Cloughaneely were the stronger side in the second half with Jason McGee and Ciaran McFadden adding further points. A strong performance from Michael McHugh saw him rewarded with a goal in the 21st minute. Glenswilly were awarded a penalty in injury time which brought them within two points of Cloughaneely. However, a further point from Ciaran McFadden stretched the difference out to three points just before the full time whistle.

The under 14s remain joint top of the division one table after their 3-7 to 2-6 victory over Dungloe on Monday evening.

They went in trailing by 1-3 to 2-6, Jake Foley on the mark for the homesters' goal. Ballyshannon kept the visitors scoreless in the second half, but it took most of the half for the Ernesiders to eat their way through the Dungloe lead with Aodh Ruadh only getting ahead in the last five minutes. Most of Aodh Ruadh's best displays came in the rearguard, starting with Matt Gillespie between the sticks who was once again magnificent. Full back Kyle Murray was an assured presence as were the half back pairing of Eugene Doherty and Colm McGloin. Up front Cian Rooney delivered the goods in a strong second half showing.
