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.
