Bad aid 1, 3, 17 agus 20 na huimhireacha lotto a tarraingeadh ag deireadh na seachtaine seachtaine agus nior baineadh póta óir an lotto. Beidh €4,800 sa phóta óir don seachtain seo. Bhain na daoine seo leanas €20 an ceann Patricia O’Donnell, Cloughwally, Ronan Molloy, Meenmore, Margaret McGonagle, John Ward, Miltown agus Francie McGovern, Dungloe.
Bhain Packie Gallagher as Ard Crone €150, bhain Mary Kennedy as Glenties, Ann Houston as Cleendra, Margaret Melly as Leitri, John Boyle(Thatch) as Burtonport agus Brid O’Donnell as St. Peter’s Tce €100 ag an bhingo.
Dungloe made the long trip to Carndonagh on Thursday last. Dungloe played well in the first half with Ben Boyle, Philip Rodgers and particularly Dara Ward impressing in the first half by getting out in front if his man in every occasion and winning three converted frees. Harry Noble was excellent in goal and Dungloe led by two at half time. Dungloe tired in the second half and the absence of some of their regulars began to tell. The game finished with a twenty one yard free for Dungloe, which if converted into a goal would have sealed victory but it was well struck but narrowly wide if the post. Harry Noble and Dara Ward were both very impressive but man if the match was Harry Noble in goal with gear stops and reflex saves and brave clearances. The result was immaterial as Dungloe have already qualified for the league semi-final and play Donegal town in that game away next Thursday.
Dungloe U10 Hurlers traveled to Convoy Centre of excellence on Sunday past to compete in an all County Blitz. The Dungloe team played consistently well including Eoghan Walsh, Conor Diver, Evan McFadden, Damian McGowan, Philip Noble, John James Blaney and John Paul Bonner and Cain Bonner.
Dungloe played Letterkenny Gaels, St. Eunans, Setanta, Burt and Carndonagh and won all five of their games.  Congratulations to Dungloe and to their coach PJ Walsh and mentors.

The All County Semi Final took place in Glenties on Sunday evening. Mac Cumhaills were up against Killybegs in what turned out to be a very close and entertaining game. Killybegs started the better of the two teams and opened up a two point lead, but they squandered a lot of chances and this allowed Mac Cumhaills to get into the game. A quick counterattack saw Karl Doherty score an excellent goal and this was followed by Luke Gavigan goal, the result of a great solo run. More scores from Oisin Gallen and Alex Mc Geehan saw Mac Cumhaills increase their lead but Killybegs came back with a goal and a point to leave only four points in it at half time. Killybegs struck again after half time with a good goal and some excellent 45’s from Ryan Cunningham. mac Cumhaills never panicked and kept fighting for every ball. more points from Oisin Gallen, Anthony Gallagher and Chad Mc Sorley saw Mac Cumhaills book their Final place. Full time score Mac Cumhaills 3-11 Killybegs 1-13.County final is this Friday. Venue to be confirmed.

Seniors: CLG BnaG 0-13 Red Hughs 0-11 Two more points in the bag for the Seniors after a very hard fought victory over Red Hughs on Saturday night. In a game played in difficult conditions it took the boys a while to get going but bar the first ten minutes they dominated the first half. The defence were rock solid and the boys were turning the ball over all over the pitch, while at the other end Christopher Barrett and Kane Barrett were a handful. The half time whistle came at the perfect moment as an almighty downpour saw both sides seek the refuge of the changing rooms with score 0-8 to 0-2. Na Galloglaigh got the first score of the second half but Red Hughs put in a great fight back to eventually bring just two between the sides after scoring five unanswered points. The blues managed to get scores at the right times to keep Red Hughs at arms length but Red Hughs never gave up and kept fighting to make for a nervy finale. Cathal Mc Gettigan scored a fine point in injury time to put three between the sides again but Red Hughs kept coming at them. A goalmouth scramble at the death was defended brilliantly but Red Hughs still managed a point. The resultant kick out was won by the blues and they managed to keep the ball in the Red Hughs half as the seconds ticked down until referee Ciaran Molloy blew the final whistle after five minutes of injury time. The lads showed they can hold their nerve now and have made it four wins out of four. No game for the Seniors next week due to the Donegal game however the Reserves take on Naomh Columba at home on Saturday. Next up for the Seniors is a home game against Naomh Colmcille on the 31st. Team: Caolan Mc Gettigan, Brandon Toye, Sean Black, Gavin Grier, Dean Burgess, Gary Merritt, Oísin Barrett, Luke Barrett (0-2), James Doyle, Cathal McGettigan (0-6), Pauric Curley (0-1), Darragh Black (0-2), Kane Barrett, Chippy Barrett (0-2), Paddy Peoples.

Our U12 boys had a busy few days with games against both St Michaels and Glenswilly. On Friday night two very impressive St Michael’s teams took the points in what were entertaining games with some fantastic displays of the skills of Gaelic Games. The B game was level on several occasions but the influence of Ciara McGarvey and Liam Toye swung the balance in favour of the team from Creeslough and Dunfanaghy. Termon had excellent displays from Lorcan Doherty in goals, Caoimhin Kelly and Manus O’Connell. In the A game Termon led by 4 at half time but 2 quick fire 3 pointers from St Michaels swung the game in their favour. Despite the best efforts of Mark Gallagher, Ben Lecky and Marty Steele, St Michaels held out for the win. On Monday night our boys made the short trip to Glenswilly and got back to winning ways with 2 victories. The B team laid down a marker early on with some fine scores and ran out victors by 6 points. The A game was a closer run affair. The teams were level at half time but an assured second half performance earned the Termon boys a 4 point victory. Next up its Fanad Gaels on Monday evening at the Burn Road with a 6.30pm throw in. Come along and support the boys. In the meantime coaching will take place this Wednesday evening 7pm at The Burn Road and not Friday as originally planned.
The U14s were defeated by 2 points in an exciting opening A Championship game on Wednesday evening last. Despite a late Adam McElwaine goal the Termon boys just could not find that final goal that was needed. A huge first half display looked to have put our boys in a commanding position but Buncrana never gave up and 2 goals in a 5 minute period halfway through the second half turned this game on its head. Next up for the boys it’s another home game, this time against Carndonagh this Friday at 7pm at the Burn Road. Again come along if you can to support this team.
Our U8s made their debut for 2014 in Falcarragh in wet conditions on Saturday last. Well done to all the boys and girls that travelled, many playing their first game at this level. This Saturday, our U10s play in their opening blitz of 2014 when they will travel to Downings. St Eunans, MacCumhaills and the hosts will provide the opposition. We will meet up at the Burn Road at 10:15 to be away at 10:25 sharp please. Anyone seeking a lift for their child is asked to contact Paddy on 0872175234 or Eddie on 0866082512. Best of luck to the boys and girls involved.
Coaching for U6s and U8s will continue at The Burn Road this Saturday 10.30-11.30. We hope to see all our boys and girls in attendance as we have a home U8 blitz on Saturday week.
Remember every child involved in U8s and U10s should have a gumshield and a bottle of water with them to coaching and games.

From our debut making keeper Lauren Russell, to our free scoring full forward Ethan Doherty and every player in between the performances were immense.
The A team also put in brilliant performance and also went home through the Gap with the points after a hard fought 2 point victory. A personal tally of 1-3 from Paddy Doherty going a long way in making that possible.
