Four Masters GAA

Weekly Notes 7th May 2018


Four Masters senior ladies met a very experienced skillful Buncrana side in the first leg of the preliminary round of Intermediate Championship. Four Masters contested til the end but Buncrana was by far the stronger side. Five of the starting fifteen were unavailable but will be playing next Sunday when Buncrana travel to Donegal Town. Kick off 11.30. On a positive note it was a terrific boost to the squad to see Kate Keaney return from a long injury. Her presence for the last twenty minutes was clearly felt and hopefully she will extend playing time next week. Well done to all players who never gave up and fought til the end. A proud performance!!

Under 12 Girls

Four Masters u12 girls continued their winning streak in sunny Glencolmcille today. We travelled with a smaller squad than normal due to First Holy Communion being on. After winning the toss our captain for the day – Kenya opted to play with the wind – which was swirling around the Naomh Columba pitch. This proved a vital decision as we opened up a good lead scoring 5 goals in the first half – going into the half time break with a 9 point lead. Playing the second half against a stiff breeze, we saw our lead being rapidly clawed back with the Glen girls scoring some lovely points & goals. Our young ladies dug deep and in a great team move – Jessica found the back of the net in the dying minutes to earn us a 3 point win 6-1 to 3-7. Well done girls on a great performance in difficult conditions.

The solidarity experienced by being among people who are bound together by a common feeling of appalling loss is a great help.
