The Club Year 2019

Our senior men’s team made it to the county semifinal marginally losing by a point, minors finished runners up in the division 3 league final, U14s finish runners up in the division 2 shield final while our U13s won the division 2 regional final and lost marginally by a point in the county final. Overall all our teams were very competitive from adult down to underage.

 

Our Seniors retained their division 3 status this year with some very encouraging performances only marginally missing out on promotion. Most of the current panel are based in Dublin or in Third Level College and with the inclusion of some u21s and minors next year the future looks bright. We finished second place in the group in the Intermediate A Championship. In the quarter-final we beat Red Hughs by a point, we then played our neighbours in the semifinal losing by one single point to eventual winners Naomh Naille.

 

The Reserves competed well in the regional league and reached the quarter final of the championship. Our U21s played in County quarter-final in a game that went to penalties after extra time and the lads lost 9-8 on penalties to Naomh Colmcille. Overall it was a positive year for our adult teams and with more young lads coming through, all three teams are capable of success in 2020.

 

The first step for our future senior footballers is our academy for kids from 4-7 and it is going from strength to strength. A six-week skills program started in the chapel for the kids in March and every Sunday morning large numbers attending before moving to Páirc Naomh Bríd during the summer months for the next six-week block. Scores of young children were intoduced to the basic skills of our national sport, which is delivered in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere.

 

The U8 season began in March to October where they learned the basic skills of the sport and then moved on to more advanced skills like tackling and man marking. The boys and girls were involved in the GO Games Blitz’s and league. They started with league and were in a group with 4 other teams – both home and away fixtures. They took part in a blitz in Ardara and made it to semifinal of the A plate which they lost narrowly to St. Michaels. The next big day out was in Ballyshannon where they got passed some stiff competition such as Four Masters and Aodh Ruadh to make it the final of the cup in which they lost by two points to Glenswilly. The U8s were then treated to trip to the cinema, organized by the coaches Noel Molloy, Ger Mc Guinness and Darren Cooke, and it was great was way to finish the season – the kids really enjoyed it.

 

The U10s started training mid-March. They played games in league format during the summer playing Kilcar, St.Nauls, Naomh Ultan, Pettigo, and Realt na Mara. The u10s also took part in the SRB finals day in Mountcharles and the Mick Shannon Memorial Cup in Ballyshannon in which we entered two teams. The lads took home silverware from Ballyshannon with both teams getting to the final, it was an enjoyable year watching this young team.

 

Our 13s finished top of Division 2 league and then played Naomh Columba in southern divisional final which Naomh Bríd won by four points in Dunkineely, they then went on to beat Naomh Colmcille in the county quarter-final and Gaoth Dobhair in the semi-final in Burt. Unfortunately, they lost the div 2 county final to Sean Mac Cumhaills by two points in Tir Chonaill Park

 

U-14’s had a solid league campaign with wins against Killybegs and Naomh Columba a  draw against Naomh Muuire but lost to Kilcar and Dungloe. They won a three-way play for 4th place against Killybegs and Naomh Mhuire and lost to St Nauls in league semifinals. U-14’s had a good run in div 2 championship with wins against Gaoth Dobhair, Fanad, and eventually lost the div 2A shield final to Gaoth Dobhair by a point.

A DECADE WITH NAOMH BRÍD – 2010-19

 

The 2010s have been positive years for Naomh Bríd GAA club both on and off the field. We have upgraded our facilities here at PAIRC NAOMH BRÍD. We opened a brand-new playing surface, which is now one of the best in the county, and we take great pride in it. We also opened a training field with floodlights and made a running track which is also floodlit. We have introduced a new PA system to the Park which is great for blitz’s and big championship day and installed a new tearoom/shop.

 

On the field we are fielding more teams than ever, having introduced girls’ football alongside boys’ football. As of this year we had 16 teams fielding over all age groups, from u8s to adults.

 

Overall the last decade has been a good one and with plenty of success at underage level we hope to have some senior silverware over the next decade.
