Good luck to both teams is the County Championship against Cloughaneely at the Bridge on this Sunday 24th May, with the throw ins at 1.30pm and 3pm. This is our only home championship match of this year and so all support would be greatly appreciated.

Well done also to Colm McFadden and Christy Toye who also put in good performances on the day, Daniel McLaughlin was a late sub for Donegal.

Well done also to Michael Langan who was part of the Donegal Minor team that also defeated Tyrone.
