posted 5 Sep 2012, 06:55 by Letterkenny Gaels
We all enjoyed a very successful family fun day at Páirc Na nGael on Sunday last. With the glorious weather supporting the event, everyone attending made the day a huge success. All of the events were very well supported. The Barbeque and home baking was exceptional and the M.C. for the day made sure we were not missing a score in Croke Pk. The evening rounded off with a Tug-o-war competition.  The interest in this event made sure that it will be a regular on the programme in the future. Thanks to the experienced Naomh Colmcille officials who refereed the Tug-o-war.
The Club hosted their annual U6 hurling blitz last Saturday with almost 40 boys and girls taking part from Gaels, St. Eunans, Buncrana and Dungloe clubs The children were mixed into teams and played 3 matches each. There was great enthusiasm and fun for everyone and some very energetic hurling. Thanks to Dan and Sharon for organising the day and to all who helped.
