Allianz Cumann na mBunscol- Indoor Hurling/Camogie Finals

The indoor hurling and camogie finals were held on Thursday 9th December in Burnfoot.
Each team had qualified from their divisional competitions for the county finals.

Dromore NS, Dungloe NS, Sessioghneil NS and Tooban NS made the hurling section and Woodlands NS, Sessioghneil NS and ToobanNS competed in the Camogie.

The hurling was a close  affair with Dungloe NS just pipping Tooban NS in the deciding game on a score of  Dungloe 3 Tooban 2.

The camogie was also a close affair. Tooban  just got the better of  Woodlands, who were going for a 3 in a row of county indoor camogie titles. Tooban 2 Woodlands 1

Dungloe and Tooban now qualify for the Ulster final which will take place in the New Year.
Great credit should be given to all the teams, their teachers and coaches and we wish Dungloe and Tooban schools all the best for the Ulster competition.
Thanks to all who turned up for the handball and rounders coaching course in Glenfin. Special thanks to Darragh Daly, Joe O’Donoghue and Frank McGlynn for facilitating. Also thanks to Diane McGlynn for the lovely tea afterwards. It is hoped that we will run a referees course for rounders in 2016.
