first_imgBY PADDY COLLWell done to Kenny Griffin and Dave MCLaughlin on Saturday last in RedHughes when they overcame Armagh to reach the Ulster final where theymeet Tyrone in the Ulster Final at U16’s.Once again lads well done.Sorry was unable to attend due to an obituary in the family.The Senior ladies met Monaghan in Clones in the Ulster Final.Whileplayers and management may not have been pleased with the result theymet a class  side who used one touch passing to perfection.The playersboth starting and reserves brought on by Monaghan were at a differentlevel in almost every position.Once again Geraldine Mc Lauglin scored all Donegal’s scores 1-7,except one and Karen Guthrie scored the other point. Michael Naughton was short eleven of last years panel and most of thegirls were on the Minor panel this year with many having done theirleaving.He was forced on the day to play a seventeen girl from Convoyin goal and she adapted vey well having had to kick the ball out atleast eighty times which was an ordeal for one so young.Next year they will have an additional year’s experience behind themand hopefully some of those in USA and Canada and Europe will be backand playing.Girls we are all proud of you as you never stopped trying even thoughthe game as a contest was virtually over after twenty minutes with theopposition 4-7 to 0-2 ahead.the score at half time was Monaghan 5-13                    Donegal 0-4. The visitors played better in the second half though Monaghan to anextent lowered their intensity and scored twelve points to our 1-4.We can now concentrate on club football for the rest of summer exceptthe U16 panel whom we all hope will advance to the All Ireland semiFinals at the minimum with some great future players in the panel—Paddy CollGAA: DONEGAL LADIES GAA ROUND-UP was last modified: July 17th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GAA: DONEGAL LADIES GAA ROUND-UPlast_img read more
