Notes Journalist Omagh

League wins – Well done to our seniors and reserves who recorded double league wins over neighbours Killyclogher at Healy Park lat Sunday. Reserves – St. Enda’s 0-11, Killyclogher 1-2; Seniors – St. Enda’s 0-15, Killyclogher 0-9.

Féile success – After three great days of activitiy the Féile na nGael for 2015 has come to an end for St. Enda’s and, just like last year, wonderful friendships and memories have been made. Last Saturday, the St. Enda’s hurlers turned in great displays against St. Patrick’s of Tipperary, St. Olaf’s of Dublin and Dungloe/Gweedore and despite the fact that eight of our squad are still U12, they produced some great hurling to win over new admirers. After losing to our visitors St. Patrick’s in the morning during a tight affair, our young stars produced a great display of hurling against a highly rated and sporting Dublin team who had hurlers who could easily grace a senior team. Then in our final game against Dungloe/Gweedore we staged a great comeback to secure a thrilling draw. Unfortunately the result meant that we narrowly missed a Shield semi-final spot on score difference. On Saturday evening past, the St. Enda’s and St. Patrick’s players and families enjoyed a wonderful BBQ evening and celebration with our guests presenting St. Enda’s with signed St. Patrick’s and Tipperary shirts. Many thanks to all our host families and everyone who helped make Féile 2015 another wonderful success. Sunday morning saw the St. Patrick’s boys head to a very cold and wet Garvaghey for the Shield semi-finals but after a tough battle, the boys lost out to Derrynoose of Armagh. A special thank you to our former long serving treasurer and President Michael Brogan who has sponsored the boys Féile shirts. See Feile photos on our Photo Gallery.
