The Kernan’s Group Donegal Ladies club championship got up and running on Sunday with games taking place across the various grades.

Each championship starts off with group matches before the knock-out stages in a few weeks’ time.

In the Senior championship, just one game was played on Sunday. Last year’s Intermediate Champions St. Eunan’s took on a strong Moville side at O’Donnell Park where the Inishowen club proved too strong, winning by 5-14 to 2-6.
