Club Notes: 29th of February 2015
Well done to the Donegal team in their win over Cork in Ballyshannon
on Sunday in the Allianz league game. A special word of praise to our
own Marty O’Reilly who put in a man of the match display scoring 4
points. Best of luck to the team in the Monaghan game on Sunday.
Shane Connolly Car Sales to drive MacCumhaills on for the season!
The club are delighted to announce Shane Connolly Car Sales as our new
senior football sponsor. Shane in association with Carzone.ie
sponsored two sets of jerseys which will contribute enormously to
preparing our teams for the coming season. The club relies on the many
good people like Shane to fund and prepare our teams and we are most
grateful that he has supported the club once again with such a
generous gesture. We’d like to thank Shane once again and wish him all
the success for the future.
The club is holding a DeFib course on Friday the 6th of March at

children). Registration is extremely important and non-registration
will result in not being insured and unable to train or play for the

likely high demand for match tickets for the Donegal/Tyrone
championship game, only those members registered before March 31st
will be eligible to be considered for a match ticket. Non-registration
before this date will affect your voting rights at AGM.
The club are asking for people to help out by selling lotto’s. This

available would be greatly appreciated. If interested please contact
Terry O’Reilly on 086 609 5347.
