Thanks to Termon who played the minors in a friendly on Sunday morning last, this was a good run out at this time of the year.The Seniors were out in the Gaeltacht last weekend against Dungloe. Bhí an bhua ag an Chlochan Liath. Bhí ocht bpointe ann sa deireadh agus is cinnte gur cluiche maith a bhí ann den dá fhoireann ag tús na bliana. Bhí thart ar chúigear de ghnáth imreoirí Naomh Mhuire in easnaibh inniu de bharr thinneas agus imeachtaí eile agus mar gheall ar sin chuaigh foireann óg na páirce inniu.The game proved a good run out with two points between the teams at half time but Dingloe got the crucial goal as the second half wore on and ran out winners.Peil na mBan Junior ladies training at the pitch on Sat. 10th Mar. at 6.30pm. The league starts on the 8th of April so we need to get going ballwork and fitness.
