Letterkenny Gaels U-12 footballers hosted Goath Dobhair on Wednesday evening last at Páirc na nGael. First up were the 2006 development team, playing in ideal playing conditions, both teams played free flowing football which resulted in plenty of fine scores.  Andrew Nicols marshalled the defence well for the home side, with Senan Nolan and John Antonio Gallagher full of running.  Mark Patterson and Robert O’Driscoll linked up superbly with forward line and cause all sorts of problems for the away team’s defence.  Gaoth Domhair won out in the end in a highly entertaining game of football. In the 2005 game, it took the boys a while to find their feet and Gaoth Dobhair opened up and early lead.  When they did get going, it was an encouraging performance from a team who are showing continuous improvement as the weeks go by.  The football improved greatly as the game went on, with passes starting to stick and forwards finding their range.  All round this was a great team performance.

Last Saturday some of Letterkenny Gaels young hurlers made the long journey to Croke Park to take part in a Go Games Tournament. They all played for over 90 minutes on the hallowed ground in teams made up of their rivals from Aodh Ruadh, Four Masters, Buncrana, St Eunans, Setanta, Burt, Mac Cumhaills, Gaoth Dobhair and Carndonagh. All the Gaels played exceptionally well and some managed to score goal or a point. This memory will be with them forever. All the players got a tour of the facilities in Croke Park and were treated to complimentary breakfast and dinner and each got a jersey for their participation.
