The Under 8 footballers played in their final blitz of the season on Saturday last in Bundoran and took home the silverware. They played four very competitive games, winning three and drawing the fourth. Great credit must go to this group of boys for their great dedication and to watch their development over the weeks has been fantastic. Again thanks to the Bundoran club for their hospitality and the parents and grandparents for all their support. Coaching continues on Wednesday evenings at 6.30 pm finishing up on Wednesday July 18th. The Football Cul Camp for boys and girls aged 6 to 13 then takes place in Tir Conaill Park from Monday July 23rd to Friday July 27th. Coaching for the Under10 girls continues on Tuesday evenings from 5.00 to 6.00 pm at Tir Conaill Park. Please contact Kelly Lacey (087) 9919035 for further information. The under 12 girls have participated in two Blitz competitions so far away to Aodh Ruadh and at home. The next Blitz is this Wednesday 27th June in Mountcharles. Coaching takes place every Monday from 6.00 to 7.00 pm. The Under 14 girls team have topped their championship group beating Glenswilly, Cloughaneely, Noamh Columba, and Ardara. They have now qualified for the County B semi-final. The Under 16 girls coaching is on Fridays at 5.00 pm. Please contact John Mc Intyre on (086) 3535107 for further information. The Senior Ladies recently won against St Eunans in both the 13-a-side and 15-a-side competitions. This Sunday (July 1st) they have a challenge match against Glenelly from County Tyrone. Championship match v Moville at home on Sunday 8th July at 12 noon. Gaelic4Mothers & Others with fun activities have commenced on Monday evenings from 8.00 to 9.00 pm at Tir Conaill Park.

The UV environment of the Beagle 2 landing site: detailed investigations and detection of atmospheric state
December 25th 2003 will see the Beagle 2 lander arrive at the surface of Mars in the Isidis region, allowing for the first time in situ measurements of ultraviolet (UV) flux directly from the surface of Mars through the use of a sensor designed as part of a miniaturised environmental package. The expected conditions the sensor will experience are studied here, and the detection signatures for phenomenon such as dust devils. H2O clouds ands near-surface fogs are presented. The beginning and end of mission surface fluxes show little variation, though the period towards mid-nominal mission does experience a maximum in total daily dose levels. Diurnal profiles are calculated highlighting the effects of increased scattering towards shorter wavelengths. A possible dust storm scenario is presented, and the effect upon component UV fluxes is shown to reverse the relative contributions of direct and diffuse components of the total UV flux. The presence of cloud formation above the landing site will be detectable though the observation of elevated diffuse/direct flux ratios. Near-surface morning fogs show a characteristic ‘dip’ in the morning profile when compared to clear mornings, allowing their detection on cloud-free mornings through post-event analysis of long term data. Predicted Phobos eclipses are investigated at each of the sensor centre wavelengths, and show greatest reduction in relative intensity at short wavelengths. Observations of near-miss eclipse events will also be possible, through monitoring of the diffuse UV flux. Dust devil encounters are shown to create a double minima lightcurve, with the depth of the minima dependent upon the total dust loading of the vortex. The effects of these changing conditions on DNA-weighted irradiances are investigated. Possible dust storms provide the greatest increase in biological protection, whereas expected cloud formations at the Beagle 2 site are found to offer negligible protection. Within just five minutes of landing > 95% of any Bacillus subtilis-like bacteria present on the surface of the craft will have lost viability.
