Finn Valley Ulsters Killybegs

Killybegs the venue at beautiful Fintragh and from the off it was obvious the challenge was again going to be strong a credit to all our coaching staff who day in day out maintain a presence and continued support at the club and this larger community are fortunate to have such people . In short Valley were on the team podium with 9 teams collecting medals individual positions for 6 our athletes .  We pushed the boat out from under 10 with Daniella Jansen to Aaron Mc Glynn under 12 a most impressive leader of a squad of Luke Gavigan, Samuel Mc Clintock and Jamie Keegan all in top 5 and a very slight improvement and focus on the day will see them very competitive in Sligo and the added bonus was qualifying a second team in this age division . 

The 14 boys team had yet another battle with Letterkenny going under by 1 point so they will renew that exercise in Sligo a big boost being the introduction of Bryan Mc Namee from Convoy to this and the 13 boys squad .
The 18 boys team of Mark Bonner 3, Dalton Mc Guigan ,Ryan Porter and Justin Browne supported by Paddy Gallagher and Danny Mc Geehin had a really encouraging team victory always important to challenge at this age range . 
Then along came the novice events and we remember an exciting 2010 novice day in Scotstown . The women had a real good shot at the team spots led by Angela Speight 2nd behind Joanne English ,Letterkenny ,Angela a sister of James joined by Kathleen Mc Nulty and Clare Devenney having her best run ever . 3rd team behind Foyle Valley and Letterkenny .
The mens was an epic Foyle Valley versus Finn Valley which generated serious excitement went down to the changing positions in the final 100m would you believe and throughout on that final lap . After some studying of the matter it emerged at 40 pts each so back to the 4th scorer and the Derry side had a 16th to the Donegal side 17th so we lost . Conor Mc Gill from Belfast won with Williamson ,City Of Derry with Finn Valleys Mark Hoye 3rd a credit to his response to a training committment in recent months ,Ian Ward now stationed in Cavan with the Army, Cathal O Connor now teaching in England and Dermot Brennan a student at D C U our scoring 4 .
In Dublin Teresa Mc Gloin 5th in Sheila Brennan run with Catherine Brogan ,Dominic Bonner and Kieran Carlin on National Masters team for Glasgow as a result of Gerry Farnan race . Well done all who travelled to this event .

Now attention is switched to Saturday week Barnetts Park ,Belfast uneven ages 11,13,15,17,19. while a number of members participate in the Dublin City Marathon Monday and we wish them well and a mention of Cranfords 50th anniversary in the Milford Inn Friday night while also Friday the Finn Valley Centre is the venue for the election count for Donegal South West.
