It was mixed fortunes for the senior and reserve teams this weekend. The first game of the weekend produced a win for Se√°n Mac Cumhaill, leaders in the reserve league. In the senior game in Ballybofey it was a much tighter affair with the lead exchanging hands on numerous occasions. A late rally from the home side saw them secure all two points. In Monday’s games at the banks the reserves put in a good performance but just came up short against Gaeil Fh√°nada. In the senior match the lads played well and the first half’s groundwork seen them power on in the second half to take the points and see them move up the league table into fourth place. Both teams will play host to Na D√∫naibh next weekend as the league passes the halfway mark.
Well done to all the children that took part in the Blitz that was organised as part of F√©ile Anagaire.
