The school has been very successful in a variety of competitions in Donegal over the years. We have collected silverware in various competitions including U14 A, Under 16 A, Under 16 B and Senior B. In this year’s under 16 competition, the team came top of their section in the league before defeating Scoil Mhuire, Buncrana in the semi-final and then overcoming Moville Community College in a tightly contested final. In the Ulster competition to date Magh Ene have defeated St Patrick’s Ballymena and St Brigid’s, Derry en route to the final.
A number of past pupils have played intercounty football at Senior and Under 21 level. Some of these include James Keaney, Christy Keaney, Shane Mc Gowan, Michael McEniff and Peter McGonigle (Donegal), Paul Brennan, Stephen McGurran, Shane Ryan, Donal Clancy and Peter McGowan (Leitrim) as well as Gavin Gilsenan and Darren Gilsenan (Sligo).
The school has forged excellent links with the GAA in the local communities with both parents and clubs providing support. Within the school itself, GAA plays a major role. There are a number of teachers involved in both coaching and promoting GAA in Magh Ene. These include Mr O Flaherty, Mr Gilmartin, Mr Warren, Mr O’Neill and Ms McLaughlin.
Best of Luck against Largy College, Clones tomorrow, throw in at 1p.m.
