Buncrana GAA Notes for Week Ending Sunday 3rd August 2014

Donegal Minors

Congratulations to Donegal Minors, winners against Roscommon on Saturday and now into the All Ireland semi-finals with a major contribution from Buncrana lads Caolan McGonigle and John Campbell. Comhgairdeas a bhuachailli!

All Ireland Quarter Final

Best of luck to Donegal in their all-Ulster quarter final against Armagh next Saturday in Croke Park. The club and county will be behind the team, especially our club members Darrach O’Connor and Paul McGonigle. Buncrana Abu!

Minor Hurlers

Good luck to our minor hurlers who take on old rivals Aodh Ruadh from Ballyshannon in the championship final on Tuesday 5th in O’Donnell Park. Throw in at 7pm and all support welcome.

Annual Family Fun Day

It was wet, darn wet…but a great day too! Thanks to everyone who came out for the Club’s annual Family Fun Day, all the kids had a fantastic time and it was amazing the number of medals and trophies they won. I’d say every kid there went home with a prize…and some of the adults too! The Club also wants to thank everyone who organised, baked, sold tickets, managed events, ran stalls, Nicholas Crossan for compering, anyone who helped out in any way. Buncrana GAA, community action at its best!

This event is open to everyone and a great night’s entertainment is guaranteed. Music is by the ever-popular ‘Inch Ramblers’. For your €10 you get top-class entertainment and fed with 2 burgers or Hot Dogs. Tickets on sale now or simply turn up on the night…and pray for good weather in the meantime (but we’ll put up the marquee in any case!).
