Ladies Football Archive


In an historic weekend for Letterkenny Gaels, the senior ladies and U14 girls’ gaelic teams competed in matches for the first time. 

In what was a historic day for the club on Sunday last April 10th, Letterkenny Gaels fielded there first Adult Ladies GAA Team. Cloughanaeely rushed out of the blocks the quickest and were soon leading 3 points to no score. Our girls refused to panic and at half time it was 0-6 to 0-3 favoring the home team. In the 2nd half after a few positional changes the girls came back to level scores after a great goal from annette pearson brought our girls back to level the game. Unfortunately Gaels were unable to get the all important score to go in the lead. In the end up Cloughaneely experienced players came to the fore and they closed out the game to win by a point. Gaels were well served by their captain Aoife Cannon and Carla Bourne in defence, Annette Pearson and Lisa Shields up front. Training resumes this Wednesday night at 7 oclock with all girls requested to attend. larger picture

Ladies All County junior League First Home Game

Termon  ladies  spoiled  the  homecoming  for  Letterkenny Gaels  who made history  by playing  their  first  Ladies  game  at  park  Na  Gaels  Letterkenny  on  Sunday  morning.
The  Gaels  who  had  one  other  previous  outing  were,  to  find  that  Termon's  second  string were  in  no  comprising  mood  and  indeed  Hugh  Harkin  and  Adrian  Brady's  charges   meant  action  from  referee  Gerard  Mc  Hugh's  throw  in.
The  Letterkenny  mentors   Jim  Farrell  and  Oisin  Cannon  were  left  contemplating  what  could have been  after,  after  several  Gaels scoring  efforts  were  squandered, and
Termon   took  hold  of  the  game. Jamie  Leigh   Murray who  was a  thorn in  the  Gaels  side  put  in  a  very powerful  performance  assisted  by  Roisin  Mc  Kelvey.                                    Larger Photos click here
