This time the boys started brilliantly and continued in the same vein for the rest of the match. Final score was 6-04 to 1-02. The lads returned to their host houses after the matches. Saturday morning saw us pitted against our host club Ballaghderreen. A win would leave us top of the table and automatic qualification into the Quarter Finals. Again the lads turned on the style and were comfortable winners, 6-06 to 1-06. The team returned again to the host houses to rest up for the evening quarter final.Our opposition were a much fancied team from Roscommon called Clg Oran. Mac Cumhaills got off to a great start and were 8 points up at half time. The second half was a joy to behold as Mac Cumhaills kept Oran scoreless whilst scoring at will themselves. Full time was 6-07 to 1-02.We returned to Durkins Hotel in Ballaghderrreen where the lads were fed and presentations were made to the host families. We were also treated to a wonderful Irish Dancing display by 4 times world Champion Ronan Kelly.Sunday morning saw the team travel to the Connacht Centre of Excellence were all the Semi Finals and Finals were taking place. Gac All Saints from Ballymena were the team drawn against us. We had a huge travelling support down from Donegal to cheer on the lads. We started brilliantly scoring three points on the trot. All Saints settled and scored two back. In the last min of the first half All Saints scored a goal which left us two points down at half time. The second half was very tight. Unfortunately it was one of those days were nothing fell right for us. The lads busted themselves trying to level the match but there was a goal between the teams in the end. All Saints 1-04 Mac Cumhaills 0-04. The lads can hold their heads up high as they have done the club and county proud, on and off the pitch over the weekend. Well done to all the lads and management.

ScienceShot: I Spy a Cat in a Tree

first_imgMany mammals and birds make noisy calls when predators lurk nearby. Now, researchers have discovered that black-fronted titi monkeys (Callicebus nigrifrons) emit alarm calls that are remarkably versatile for primates, simultaneously announcing the type of predator and its location. To find out what the monkeys were conveying, scientists conducted experiments in Brazil’s Atlantic Rainforest with a stuffed raptor and cat. When the titi monkeys saw the raptor in the trees, they uttered a series of calls that mean “Raptor! Tree!” But when the monkeys discovered it on the ground, they mixed the calls: “Raptor! Ground!” Similarly, when they noticed a stuffed cat that the scientists placed on the ground, the monkeys warned: “Cat! Ground!” And when they encountered the cat in the canopy, they announced the location first, bursting out: “Tree! Cat!” Meerkats and chickadees can also announce the kind of predator and its whereabouts, but this telegraphing has never been discovered before in primates, the scientists report in the current issue of Biology Letters.See more ScienceShots.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)last_img read more
