Old traditions live on in Donegal

Verdict: Draw. But now after last Saturday nights 14 point win away to Ardara, the men from the Bridge appear to hold all the cards going into their last two games at home to Gaoth Dobhair on Saturday afternoon and St Eunans the following weekend.Martin McElhinney suffered a serious facial injury against Ardara which necessitated an overnight in Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry, and is out for the rest of the season.One suspects there should be a lot of straight talking in Gaoth Dobhair this week. Their championship aspirations could be all over by Saturday evening. And after last weekends draw against St Eunans in Magheragallon, this is a huge game for Gaoth Dobhair - one they cannot afford to lose.They face a St Michaels team who began last weekend as the third ranked team in the group behind Gaoth Dobhair and St Eunans. For the second week in a row Gaoth Dobhai,r the defending champions are involved in the match of the round.

Ardara suffered a heavy home defeat against St Michaels in the first round, a result which highlighted the gulf between the top half of Division One and the top of Division Two. Tactically, Richard Thornton and his backroom team got their tactics and game-plan spot on. I suspect the more the past week wore on, the more St Eunans will have been regretting not claiming Gaoth Dobhairs scalp last Sunday evening in Magheragallon. Verdict. Their bravery in pressing at the start of the third quarter when faced with a stiff breeze was also admirable.Their problem this week is that while they had the best part of six months to prepare for the Gaoth Dobhair challenge, they have only six days to prepare for Ardara. They soaked up early Gaoth Dobhair pressure in the first quarter before pushing on in the second to go in 0-4 to 0-2 up at half-time.

One things for sure, Oisin Gallen wont be allowed the same freedom in this clash as he was allowed last Saturday night against Dungloe in MacCumhaill Park. Killybegs will be anxious to bounce back from last weekends six point defeat in Davy Brennan Memorial Park. This is a huge tie in the race for the second qualifying place in the group. A win in Glenties was always going to be a bonus for Hugh McFadden and company.The home games against MacCumhaills and Dungloe would have been the target games once the draw was made. But they face a MacCumhaills team buoyed by that eight point win over Dungloe. It is generally accepted that Naomh Conaill will top the group and claim the number one quarter-final qualifying spot. Killybegs manager John Cunningham and coach Rory Gallagher, a disciple of the blanket defence, will make sure of that.

A great nights craic was had and the club would like to thanks Glenfin for their hospitality. After a late fitness test Seimi Burke was passed fit, while Aodh McCormack put in a tough weeks training in Galway and was also able to start but found the going tough underfoot and struggled but got past the post by a nose. Corner forward Aidan Cannon, with only one hip, still managed to get on the scoresheet with a point while Eddie McCleary was a big strong man in full forward. For Glenfin Frank and Dermot Ward were in flying form and as sharp as ever in the forward line, in the words of Aodh McCormack, form is temporary, class is permanent. In midfield SP Barrett looked to have hamstring trouble while further up the pitch there were rumours Noel Gillespie had spent the day in the bookies betting on a Glenfin win and the longer the game went on the more it looked like it. Similar to Donegal, a lot of players had a lot of miles on the clock. Milford were without the services of the two Nash brothers, Darran and Paul, but thank god for Dundalks Paul Grier to do a bit of running in the middle of the park. Gerry Kinlan looked to be in the same shape he was in in 92 with intelligent play in defence. There was a big turnout for this game with a panel of 24 turning up although there were some injury worries before the game. The club would also like to thank Tom Anderson for managing the team however he found the journey home tough and had to stay for 3 days. In defence Pat Barrett and Sean McHugh did very well but undoubtedly man of the match for Milford was flying half back Hugo Hagan.

It would be great if they could get some support for the game and hopefully they can finish off the tie and qualify for the Intermediate final at their first attempt. The senior ladies defeated Four Masters in the first leg of their sem-final last Sunday morning in what was a hard fought battle from start to finish. Slowly but surely the girls managed to get into the game and thanks to a brace of goals from Amber Barrett they managed to go in at half time with the scores level. The long delay since their last competitive game seemed to be a factor as the girls were slow to start and found themselves 1-6 to three points down after twenty minutes. After the break Milford started to impose their game on Four Masters and when Lianne Boyce hit the back of the net after a sweeping move up the field it gave the girls the bit of daylight on the scoreboard that they were able to maintain until the final whistle. This was a good result for the girls against opposition who played in a senior championship final two years ago but the job is only half done and they will be really up against it when they travel to Donegal town next Sunday morning for the second leg.

The U16s were defeated by St Eunans B on Monday night by 5-8 to 2-10, however due to St Eunans playing ineligible players na Galloglaigh will get the points. Connor Gormley scored 2-3, while Kane Barrett got 6 points and Cormac Toland got 1 point.

Latest Insight

Congratulations are also in order for our own SP Barrett who is manager of this Donegal team, as well as Darran nash, Michael McGlynn and Luke Barrett who are part of his backroom team. Congratulations to Kane Barrett and Gavin McFadden on winning the Buncrana Cup at the weekend. Donegal defeated Derry in the Semi Final with Kane scoring a goal before going on to defeat Tyrone in the Final by a scoreline of 3-6 to 0-3.

It is a bigger project than that. Naivety in defence rather than frailties was the source of Dungloes problems and it is hard to see Francie Martin coming up with a defensive plan to tighten up at the back in the space of a week. But in Adam Neilly and Conor Greene they have the attacking duo to ask questions of the Naomh Conaill. Dungloe chalked up 1-18 yet were still on the end of an eight point defeaty courtesy of Oisin Gallen and Sean MacCumhaills in Ballybofey on Saturday night..
