What a season it was for everyone involved with underage football in Four Masters as they completed a clean-sweep of Donegal Division 1 underage titles – u-13, u-15 and u-17.
It’s a testament to the hours of effort put in over many, many years to have their teams at the top level.
Their u-17 team came within a whisker of seeing off a fine Dungiven team in the Ulster final after winning every single title on the way to the decider in St Paul’s.
Their development plans will give them a chance of progressing at senior level as the club try to break back into the top bracket of teams challenging to topple top dogs Naomh Conaill.
It was another huge year of progression for Glen that so nearly ended up the Andy Merrigan Cup on the sideboard.
The senior footballers defended their Derry title before ousting All-Ireland champions Kilcoo in the Ulster final to land a first ever Ulster senior success after years of underage development.
Off the field, the club handled themselves impeccable in the fall-out of the controversy surrounding their defeat to Kilmacud and the difficult situation they found themselves in.
On the camogie front they were again Derry champions and continued their impressive record in the county in Scór.
They were well represented on Derry’s Ulster senior winning squad and Conor Glass has been appointed as the county’s new senior captain.
After years in the Ulster wilderness and dominating the Antrim senior camogie scene, Loughgiel came through to win the UIster title against a Sleacht Néill team who were top of the tree for the best part of the decade.
They played some excellent camogie in the process and proceeded to the All-Ireland final before coming up short against Sarsfields.
And it wasn’t just a magical season for the girls, the minor hurlers retained their Ulster title after winning four Antrim championships in succession.
It rounded off a fine year on all fronts that Mark ‘Duck’ McFadden help Antrim camogs to All-Ireland junior glory and some of their hurlers lead St Louis Ballymena to the Mageean Cup.
