We had mixed for­tunes in our area last week when we played two games, los­ing one and win­ning the other. On Fri­day last in Bal­li­nakill our ju­nior team lost their quar­ter fi­nal game to Coolkenno. We were in trou­ble from the start with two of our top scor­ing for­wards not avail­able. Tommy Dwyer was in the USA and Nikki Dono­van had a leg in­jury. Even though our lads bat­tled hard it was Coolkenno, who were scor­ing. Things bright­ened up in the sec­ond half when Gavin Wal­she scored a goal but alas our for­ward unit failed to add enough scores for a win.

On Satur­day in Wick­low our se­nior camo­gie team had a one point win over Knockanann­a in the County Fi­nal. This was a re­peat of last year’s fi­nal which Knockanann­a won. This was a real cracker of a game between two well pre­pared teams. It was score for score for the first hour so much so that at the end a lot of us were not sure whether it was a draw or a win. \luck­ily we won by the min­i­mum on point score. A good time was had by all later in the vil­lage with the tra­di­tional bon­fire blaz­ing till the early hours. Well done, girls. It is on to the Le­in­ster Cham­pi­onship against a West­meath team, com­ing up shortly.


Donard ICA, guild meet­ings will re­sume on Wed­nes­day next, Septem­ber 18, in Donard Hall at 8 p.m. Our speaker will be Nurse Bri­die O’Neill, who is al­ways gen­er­ous to us with her time and ex­per­tise. New mem­bers are al­ways wel­come to join us.
