With the U14 Ulster Semi-final looming, we take a look back at the road to the semis...
Mr. James Doherty's Under 14 boys continue their charge through Ulster after their great victory in the County Final before Christmas. The boys have trained energetically and spirits are high at the moment. In the midst of the training regime they had a trip to Ballybofey to see Donegal beat Derry in the first round of this year's National League Division 1 .They certainly picked something up at this game as they swept aside their Co. Tyrone opposition, Carrickmore in the Ulster quarter final played at Owenbeg on Monday Feb 9th. They put on an outstanding display of controlled attacking football for the parents and supporters who had travelled up for the game. Conor O'Donnell gave a masterclass of midfield play and scored 2-3 from play. His midfield partner Kyle Doherty also covered a lot of ground in this new position for him and got a goal from play. Johnny Toye, when he settled in on the edge of the square was unstoppable and contributed 3-2 to the total score. Gavin McDaid filled in well for him while he was blood-subbed. The forward line put together some terrific moves and Kieran Farren was at the centre of many of them - he got 1-6 into the bargain! Joe McGonigle got a rasper of a goal, while substitute, Luke Davy Doherty also hit the net.
The HELP (Healthy Eating & Lifestyle) project aims to tackle teenagers' unhealthy lifestyles through the provision of community based school-centered programmes along with utilising the Barrack Hill Park, Gardens and allotments facilities in Donegal Council area. The HELP project encompasses a skills based multi-component management programme (13-19yrs) focusing on well being, nutrition and physical activity. By engaging in Healthy Lifestyles and Making a Difference programmes, we target teenagers, seeking to encourage healthy life choices through positive lifestyle changes in their environments.
Health Programme Manager, Donnacha Gallagher - "The 'HELP' programme delivered in Carndonagh Community School has been a fun, effective, community focused, student friendly programme.

Around fifty TY and Fourth Year pupils spent Wednesday morning learning their moves for the Paddy's Day parade in Dublin. Under the guidance of members of the Inishowen Carnival Group, along with Mrs. Elaine Farren, the pupils were furnished with whacky costumes and other outlandish paraphernalia that has made the Inishowen group such a big hit at the parade. Keep an eye on RTÉ on St. Patrick's Day and you're sure to spot one or two people you know, even if you mightn't recognise them...
