Red Hughs lead for the majority of the game but a Gaoth Dobhair goal in final minutes left the scores level but Red Hughs composed themselves to score the winning point with the last kick of the game. This was a brilliant team performance from a very young Red Hugh's side who's workrate was immense from the start till the end of the game.

Na nDúnaibh

Comhghairdeachas le foireann na mBan. D’imir siad ina gcéad chluiche ceannais ar an Domhnach is chuaigh thart nuair a d’imir siad in éadan Naomh Muire i gcluiche ceannais Sóisir Chomórtas Peile na Gaeltachta. Imríodh an cluiche seo ar pháirc Naomh Mícheál i nDún Fionnachaidh. Cé go raibh an bhuaidh ag Naomh Muire thug na girseachaí taispeántas maith uafa agus is cinnte go bhfuil siad ag dul ó neart go neart. Ba mhór an truaighe nach raibh cead ag Searón Nic Rodaigh ach leath amháin a imirt mar is cinnte go ndearna sí difríocht mhór sa dara leath. Guímis gach rath ar Naomh Muire sna cluichí ceannais náisiúnta de Chomórtas Peile na Gaeltachta.

Guímis gach rath fosta ar Séaron Nic Rodaigh a bheas ar fhoireann Dhún na nGall ar an Domhnach seo nuair a imreos siad Corcaigh. Maith thú a Séaron agus ádh mór ort.

Bhí cúpla buaidh mhaith ag an fhoireann Faoi-12 ansin le goirid in éadan Baile na nGallóglach agus Naomh Mícheál. Chaill siad in éadan an Tearmain oíche Chéadaoin agus beidh siad i gcoinne Chloich Cheann Fhaola an tseachtain seo.

The Under-16 team had a good start to their league campaign with a good win over Milford and this week they had an excellent win against St. Micheal’s where the boys gave a great performance. This week they will be away against Falcarragh. The Club would like to wish Dean Mc Bride a speedy recovery from an injury he got in the St. Micheal’s match.

Chaill na mionúir ina gcluiche in éadan Ghaoth Dobhair ar an tseachtain is chuaigh thart.

Beidh sos acu anois agus bhéarfaidh seo deis dóibh díriú isteach ar a gcuid scrúdaithe. Guímis gach rath orthu sin uilig atá ag staidéar go dian ar an aimsir seo.

The club would also like to thank all the boys and girls who were confirmed on Saturday last.
