LGFA Championship: Termon off to a winning start

REIGNING Donegal champions Termon opened their 2023 Senior championship campaign with a victory over St Eunan’s at O’Donnell Park in Letterkenny on Sunday morning.

This game went very much as expected, with the favourites Termon playing well in the first half to lead by 2-4 to 0-2 at the break. They ran out nine-point winners on a scoreline of 2-9 to 0-6.

It was one of a number of games on a busy morning of action around the county.


The other game in Group 1 saw Moville get the better of Buncrana in their all-Inishowen affair.

In Group 2 last year’s beaten finalists Glenfin eased o a 4-9 to 0-6 win at home to St Naul’s.

The Intermediate Championship saw the second round of fixtures in the two groups.

In Group 1, Killybegs got their first win in the competition, defeating Naomh Muire 0-7 to 0-6.

But Gaeil Fhánada lead the way in this group after they picked up their second win thanks to a comfortable 6-17 to 1-2 victory over Milford.

In Group 2, Ardara bounced back from their defeat in Magheragallon last Sunday with a comfortable 3-20 to 0-6 win over St. Mary’s, Convoy.

Gaoth Dobhair lead this group after beating Carndonagh by 3-10 to 1-04 for their second win of the campaign.


The first round of matches were played on Sunday in the Junior A competition.

Favourites Dungloe laid down an early marker with a 7-18 to 2-7 win over Naomh Padraig, Uisce Chaoin.

Also in Group 1, Downings made home advantage count against Glenswilly, winning by 2-8 to 1-2.

In Group 2, there was one game played with Naomh Columba beating Four Masters by 1-14 to 2-4.

In Junior B, the only action on Sunday was in Group 2 and it’s all to play for after the second round of matches.

MacCumhaill’s lead the group after recording a highly impressive 4-10 to 1-10 win away to Kilcar.

Aodh Ruadh 2 were way too strong for Termon 2 in Ballyshannon to get their first points in the group.

MacCumhaill’s will win this group if they avoid defeat against Aodh Ruadh 2 in their final match.
