10 in a row for Donegal's St Eunan's

in a Row For St Eunan’s


Senior Championship Final St Eunan’s 2-16 (22) Moville 3-06 (15)

2005 is no different to any other year in the Donegal Senior Ladies
Championship as St Eunan’s again proved too strong and take home
their tenth title in a row and apart from ‘95’ they have had no
other blips since coming into existence in ‘92’.

As both sides headed to McCumhaill Park on Sunday last it was
expected new kids on the block Moville could well cause a shock
this time around. Not so as St Eunan’s turned in another wonderful
all round performance to blow their opponents away and really
no words can describe this club and the their history of success.
The Letterkenny girls got off to a blistering start to race into
a 1-05 to 0-01 lead after just eleven minutes, Nadine Doherty
netting the all important goal. Their dominance continued with
some fine points from Anne Doherty and Emer O’Herlihy and a second
goal this time from Suzanne Tinney.

Moville were given a glimmer of hope with a penalty converted
by Niamh Hegarty. Half Time St Eunan’s 2-09 Moville 1-02 The eventual
winners continued on from where they left off with a cracking
point by Nadine Doherty. However they were to be hit with a cruel
blow with Nadine carried off with a very bad injury. Within a
minute Moville had hammered in their second major from Maresa
McGettigan. Anne Doherty responded with a point before she was
sent to the sin bin. A third goal for Moville by the lively Anita
Doherty suddenly give St Eunan’s plenty to think about but with
O’Herlihy in great scoring form they hit the important points
to keep them clear of any real danger. A deserved victory for
the Eunan’s girls and they now go forward to meet Derry champions
Glen in Letterkenny in two weeks time 18th September.

The injury to team captain Nadine Doherty putting a shade over
this fine performance but hopefully this talented footballer will
be gracing the playing pitches in the very near future again.
For the time been they will savour another county title but on
another day those eighteen wides they shot could be a problem.
