Donegal and Monaghan Game:
Best of luck to Marty and the Donegal team in the Ulster semi-final against Monaghan in Cavan on Saturday. Safe journey to all travelling.
Senior Men’s Football:
Seniors and reserves were in action away to Milford on Sunday. The reserves posted another vital win and had to dig deep and show great character to scrape out the result Milford 1.12 Seán Mac Cumhaills 2.12. The seniors were unlucky with a last minute goal cruelly snatching the 2 match points away. Milford 1.12 Seán Mac Cumhaills 1.10.
The hurlers were in action with an away game against Sean Treacys, Lurgan on Sunday with a depleted squad and narrowly lost out on a score line of 1.15 to 2.08. They are away on Sunday to Castleblayney, time to be confirmed.

Super Valu Kits for Clubs:
Kavanagh’s Super Valu Ballybofey have once again launched their Kits for Clubs. As proud sponsors of the GAA Football All- Ireland Championship they have donated over 400 juvenile GAA clubs with kits worth over €430k collectively and our own Local Super Valu has always been a great supporter of the club and once again we can benefit from their generosity. Every time you spend over €40 on a shopping you will get a special receipt at the till. Just put that receipt in the Seán Mac MacCumhaills box. It’s that simple!
The Bingo takes place in the Villa Rose Hotel on Sunday night with an 8.30pm start. The Snowball jackpot is €9,000 for 45 numbers or less. All are very welcome.
