Hi Everyone,
Attached and below are the Naomh Colmcille Weekly GAA notes.
Regards,
Adrian Marsh (087 2873076)

The club hosted a hugely successful Cul camp this week…well done to all the boys and girls that took part. Special thanks to Sharon and Darina for all their efforts organising it and for looking after the kids during the week. Thanks also to all the coaches and assistant coaches for all their work throughout the week, and to everyone who helped in any way.

The latest training and match times for all age groups are posted on our Facebook page. All new players are very welcome.

Buncrana seniors emerged with the points following a narrow win at Pairc Colmcille on Wednesday evening.

It took 10 minutes before any score arrived, but Buncrana then hit four quick points within a five minute period to gain control of the match. It took a fine save from Gary McDaid in the home goals to keep the margin down. Conor Grant got Naomh Colmcille’s opening point. Ryan McErlean had an effort on goal which flew narrowly wide. Each side added another two points before the interval, the home scores coming from Joe Donaghy – one from a free and one from play. This left the score at half time 0-3 to 0-6 in favour of the visitors.

Buncrana extended their lead in the opening minute of the second half, but this was cancelled out by a Willie Gillespie point.However Buncrana added on three points without reply to extend their lead to six with 12 second half minutes gone. That was to be the visitors last score of the match. Three points from Willie Gillespie, and one each from Gerard Curran and Don Hegarty reduced the margin to two at the final whistle. Both sides had opportunities to increase their scores throughout the half but the efforts were off target. Full time score Naomh Colmcille 0-8 0-10 Buncrana.
