**Cúl Camp 2020 Cancelled**

Cúl Camp 2020 Cancelled

It is with great regret that we must announce that our Annual Kelloggs Culcamp will not take place in Naomh Brid this year.

Due to Covid 19 and the extensive restrictions and social distancing requirements along with the unavailability of our dressing rooms and several other factors we have come to the conclusion that we cannot accommodate the running of our Culcamp for 2020.Our Camp has been very successful in recent years and the decision will no doubt disappoint many but we will endeavour to make a successful return in 2021.

On a more positive note plans are in place for all our underage teams to resume training over the next week so we all have something to look forward to.

💚🖤 The first underage Title in the history of the Club💚🖤 U12B Southern Divisinal Champions 1984💚🖤 click on link

U-12B Southern Divisional Champions 1984

We rewind now, all the way back to the 80s in fact and the first ever underage title won by a team from the club. That team was the U-12s 0f 1984 who won the U-12B Divisional title that year, beating Aodh Ruadh B in the semi-final, before going on to beat St.Nauls in the final played in Tir Chonaill Park. It was a landmark victory that really helped launch the club onto the underage scene in the South. In the early years of the Club, underage football had been of secondary concern and fielded teams only sporadically, and it would be the 80s before any concerted effort was made in developing the players of the future.

The managers of that first successful Naomh Brid team were two of the driving forces in developing underage football within the club, Pierce Ferriter, Headmaster at St.Eunans NS Laghey, who had done great work with his pupils, winning four County Titles in the mid to late 80s, whilst Eamonn Gibbons was one of the driving forces in developing the U-10 team which appeared in 3 consecutive Southern U-10A finals, before he moved to Galway.

Whilst the 1984 U-12B title may not be the most prestigious title in the clubs history, it was an important step, the one that got the ball rolling, as by the end of the 80s, Naomh Brid had lifted three Southern A/Division 1 titles, appeared in a County Division 1 final and were now mixing it with the likes of Aodh Ruadh and Four Masters on a regular basis. Underage football in the club had well and come of age.

💚🖤 Blast From The Past💚🖤 U14s 2003 Ulster Champions & County Champions

U-14s 2003 Ulster Champions & County Champions

Moving forward a few year’s now, 2003 doesn’t seem that long ago and then you realise it was 17 years ago. Anyway, the 2003 U-14s must go down as one of the most successful teams in the clubs history. Having just missed out in the County U-13 Final the previous year, Manager Sean Timoney had high hopes for his team, but even he can hardly have imagined the level of success they achieved that year. They dominated Division 2 football in Donegal that year and would go on to become the first team from the club to reach an Ulster Final and win it.

They cantered through the Southern Division and a sign of how much this team had improved, they hammered Downing’s(their conquerors from the previous year)in a County Semi-final. Urris provided the opposition in League and Championship finals and though putting up battling performances, Naomh Brid team were just too strong. They also added the Donegal Feile title, giving them a clean sweep of Division 2 County titles in Donegal.

Winning the Donegal Feile title qualified them to represent Donegal at the Ulster Feile Competition taking place in Tyrone. The successful run continued at Ulster level beating two Tyrone teams and Fermanagh side Devenish to qualify for the Division 2 Ulster Final . First they got to enjoy the pomp of the Teams parade in Carrickmore before facing Castledawson from Derry. Once again they proved too strong for their opposition and the club had their first and to date only Ulster winning team.
