Many thanks to all our club members who helped with stewarding, selling programmes and the work in shops etc. for both games on Sunday and special thanks goes to the grounds staff that put in such hard work to have the pitch in great shape. Another great result for Donegal in Ballybofey.


Donegal Games:

Well done to the Donegal hurlers who recorded a superb win over Tyrone in the first game in the Nicky Rackard Championship with Jamesie Donnelly among others putting in a fine shift in the green and gold.  Hard luck of luck to Mickey McMahon and Aaron Gillooley in the U17 game vs. Monaghan but well done to Marty O’Reilly and the Senior team in their game against Cavan.


B&S Credit Union Sponsorship:

Many thanks to Pauline and Celine and Ballybofey & Stranorlar Credit Union for their continued community support. These jerseys will go along way in helping our U14 boys team for the season ahead especially when they represent Donegal at Feile 2018.


Donegal Masters:

Well done to club players Mark Cannon and Shaun Boyce who lined out for the Donegal Masters on Thursday evening in Clones against Monaghan in Round 1 of the championship. Mark, making his championship debut, came on as a second half sub in goals and made a number of fine saves while Shaun played at centre half forward scoring 0-6. The game finished in a 4 point victory for Donegal 1-8 to 1-12. Next up for the masters is Tyrone in two weeks in Letterkenny.
