Latest St Eunan’s Club Notes
Brian McCormick’s Sports and Leisure Division One and Division One Reserve:
Sunday last was a great day of results for the Senior and Reserve panels. On a very damp and rainy afternoon, Mick Martin’s Reserve team started the day off with a 1-17 to 0-14 victory over Gaoth Dobhair and, against the same opposition, the Seniors ran out 3-14 to 2-9 winners with Eóin McGeehin notching a hat-trick of goals on the day.
This coming Saturday sees both teams make the journey west to Kilcar; the Reserve game starts at 6:00pm with the Seniors starting later at 7:30pm.

Fixtures have been released for the under 14s and it reads that they will face Glenswilly on Monday evening at 7:00pm.

Special words of good luck to our own members in the panel; of which include Shaun Patton, Caolán Ward, Éamonn Doherty, Niall O’Donnell and Andy McGovern as the goalkeeping coach as well of course.
Regarding tickets, they can be collected at the Clubhouse this evening (Thursday) between 7:30 and 8:00pm. Safe travels to everyone making the journey.
Donegal Ladies – (Message on behalf of Alan O’Connell)
Big thanks on behalf of the County Ladies players and management to Stevie and Brendan’s U12 team for their fantastic support in the Ulster Semi Final in Killyclogher. Also, congratulations on an entertaining half time game. The U12’s are pictured with the Eunans members of the squad Anna Flanagan, Ciara Grant, Kaneshia McKinney and Aisling Nee after the extra-time win last Saturday evening.
Underage Girls – (Message on behalf of Stevie Crossan)
Sunday 16th was again results of mixed fortunes. Team 1 had a great victory against a tough Muff team. Winning by just a point at half time but deserved to be further ahead yet some quick goals from Eunans brought us ahead in the second half and we kept the lead. Defense stood tall and made Muff work hard for any scores they got. The whole team worked hard throughout the game.
Big congratulations to them all. Team 2 battled hard playing some excellent football from the goalkeeper up to the forward-line but the ball was just falling short up front, although they never gave up. The midfield worked tirelessly and the defense kept strong and limited Muff to shooting from distance. In the end Muff came out on top. Again well done to all involved. Thanks again to all the coaches and to the parents who came to support them all.
Gaelic 4 Mothers and Others Registration:
This will take place on Wednesday June 26th at 8:30pm at O’Donnell Park.
