Under 21 Football
MacDonaghs play Inane Rovers in the quarter-final of the ‘B’ championship on this Sunday, 11th February in MacDonagh Park at 2.00pm. Depending on weather conditions, the venue for this game may be subject to change.
The minor footballers, the senior and junior hurlers were presented with their medals by George Hannigan at a function in the Thomas MacDonagh Complex on last Friday night. The various management teams were also the recipients of mementos in recognition of their work. The club used the occasion to make special presentations to club presidents, Tom McLoughney and Len Gaynor & to vice-presidents Carmel Daly and Joe McCarthy. Presidents Tom Cleary and Fr. Burke along with vice-presidents Martin O’Meara and John Heenan were unavoidably absent and they will receive their presentations at a later date. Thanks to Cathal McIntryre and his staff for the excellent catering arrangements on the night and to Seamus Costello who was on hand with his camera.
