Senior Girls GAA Roundup

Senior Girls GAA 2018

The Senior girls' first match was away to Abbey Vocational School where all girls had a great game and put in a lot of hard work on such a damp day. They came away winners on a scoreline of 9-9 to 4-16.

The girls then played Thornhill at home. This was a very tough match for the girls against a very strong, fit, older team. The girls did their best and never give up, but unfortunately Thornhill came away winners. The girls have two matches to play - home to Colaiste Ailigh on Tuesday 23rd October, and away to Killybegs.

U15 Girls Soccer - Five-Star Performance in Season Opener

Carndonagh CS 5-0 St Columba’s Photo Album

Carndonagh CS U15 girls got their season off to a great start with a 5-0 win over St. Columba’s Stranorlar (8th October 2018). The first goal wasn’t long coming as Emma Devlin, with a great through ball, found 1st year Ellie Long, who calmly slotted it past the keeper for what we hope is her first of many Carndonagh CS goals. The next goal came from Sophie Murphy, who got the ball at the halfway line and drove straight to goal to make it 2-0. Captain Chaylee Greene secured another for CCS when she got on the end of a loose ball in the box. St. Columba’s battled hard but couldn’t stop the Carndonagh side who moved the ball well to find Emma Devlin who was composed in front of goal to get her name on the scoresheet. Centre backs Kate McCallion and Roseanna McConnalogue held it tight to ensure a clean sheet for Carndonagh. Katherine Doherty also got a goal for her side after a great game on the right wing. The game was well secured when Alaina Keogh scored the final goal for the winning side. She received the ball in the box and buried it to leave the final score 5-0.

Goalscorers: Ellie Long, Sophie Murphy, Emma Devlin, Chaylee Greene, Alaina Keogh

We went on our tourism trip on Thursday, 4th of October; we left the school at 11:20 and headed to the Famine Village.

The Famine Village 
We arrived at the Famine Village where we met our tour guide and the owner Pat Doherty. He explained to us how dependent his business and Inishowen businesses in general are on cross border tourists. He explained the effects that Brexit will have on his business and other Irish businesses. He also talked about how all his income is mostly made from coach groups and tours. He then took us on a guided tour of the attractions including his own thatch cottage that he grew up in, a brewery where he showed us how poitin used to be made. (All was going well until Ms McGoldrick informed Mr Doherty that we were not 18!!...So no shots of poitin for us). We then went to the haunted house and escape house. After this we got back on the bus and made our way to the Glen House.
