Camogie: Last Monday the St. Aengus Camogie team were crowned county Champions when we overcame Dromore N.S. in the final. The team were led by team Captain Allanah Curran. They were an exceptional team and we wish them well when they go to Féile with Burt GAA in the hurling stronghold of Galway to represent Donegal.
