Good Luck

Good Luck to the St. Michael’s Players and the rest of the Donegal team and Management in their Ulster final against Monaghan in Clones on Sunday next the 19th July with the throw in at 2pm.

Club Gear

Michael Murphy Sports & Leisure is now stocking St Michaels club gear in children and adult sizes.

Initials can be embroidered on tops if requested in the shop.


A great turnout on Saturday morning last for the 2015 Runegal in aid of St Michael’s and Pieta House. The earlier start suited the runners (and the organisers – especially with the constant downpour later in the day!) The addition of the 5k provided a good alternative for the new and younger athletes.

10k winners were: Male 1. Sean Murphy in 36.30 (ten seconds improvement on last year), 2. Ronnie Kidd,3. Kevin Shiels.

Female 1. Claire Richardson 52.09, 2. Catherine Reavey, 3. Robyn MacIntosh.

1st Local John McClafferty.

5k winners: Winner Cameron Jenkins, 1st lady Fiona McClelland. Juvenile boy Max Roarty Juvenile girl Aoibhinn McGinley.

Thanks to all participants for supporting the event and well done to all – it is a challenging 10k and 5k which will not give you a personal best time for the distance but should give you a huge sense of satisfaction for finishing it.

Thanks to our sponsors – Harte Insurance for the trophies, Centra, Western Beverages, MCM Group, and the Gleeson group for the refreshments. Thanks for all the support from St. Michael’s – the organising committee, the tea ladies, the marshalls, the route planners, the Guards, the registrars, the gantry collector, the photographer – a great team effort from all which led to a successful and enjoyable day.

Keep the date free for next year and get out training – you know you can beat your time!
