Both the reserve and senior teams were defeated at home on Sunday. The lads are free for the next two weeks and will return to action with an away game to Moville on week ending 9th April. See Facebook for details. 

Letterkenny Gaels in association with Donegal Camogie will host a bucket collection (permit granted) this Saturday in various locations throughout the town. We are asking for club members to help out with this fundraiser as a percentage of the collection will be donated to the Gaels. If you can spare an hour or two on Saturday please contact Aideen on 086 816 3605 or John on 086 856 1768.


Club members are reminded of the Home Insurance offer we are promoting in association with AIB Bank Letterkenny where members can nominate Letterkenny Gaels as their chosen club when taking out Home Insurance with them. See Club Facebook for more details.


Letterkenny Gaels man David O'Callaghan took charge of the Division 3 reserve game Fanad v Burt at Tria-Loch on Sunday past. David has recently completed the referees course in both Football and Hurling and we wish him well in the coming season. David is no stranger to the big or small ball as he learned his skills and played at the highest level with his native St. Vincent's in Cork.


For anyone who attends Letterkenny Gaels and other Club Games during the season, the GAA Club Pass is a must have. Between our Senior, Reserve and U-21 teams, they will play at least 25 matches during the season. Added to this, if you attend Senior, Intermediate and Junior Championship and other League Games, the Pass will actually save you money.

Bhí oíche den scoth ag Gaeil Leitir Ceanainn areir. Gaels were well represented in the County semi-final of Scór. Méabh Ní Chathail sang a wonderful solo ballad and just missed out on a place in the County Final despite coming out with a score of 95/100. That just shows the standard of the competition. Michael O'Connor gave a hugely entertaining rendition of The Tae Man in the storytelling competition. Katrina Patton, Niamh Hanley, Clíona Conaghan, Méabh Ní Chathail and Bairbre Uí Chathail won the ballad group section with two great songs and fabulous, tight harmonies (with huge thanks to Brighdín Carr). The quiz team on the night included Paul Melaugh, Michael O'Connor, Garry Coll and Bairbre Uí Chathail. It may not have been their finest outing!! Brian Sweeney's entertaining play The AGM was brilliantly performed by the Gaels drama squad of Bernie Frain, Noel Sweeney, Garry Coll, Brighdín Carr, Sheila Sweeney, Celine Sweeney and Brian Sweeney. The play received a great response from the audience and you have an opportunity to see it and hear the ballad group in the Scór County Final next Saturday 25th February starting at 7.30 in the clubhouse at Glenswilly.
