The senior footballers had no game last Saturday and they are fixed to play Robert Emmetts this weekend. Please see Facebook for details on match fixture.

Congratulations to Niall Diver and the U-17 County hurlers on their semifinal victory over Fermanagh in the Celtic Challenge which took place in Lurgan at the weekend.
Also well done to Oisin Cannon and the Donegal senior footballers on their Ulster Final success on Sunday.

The finals of the Letterkenny and District Gaelic Football Primary Schools League took place at Pairc na nGael on Wednesday past, where we hosted the 2018 small and large Primary Schools finals day.  Nine different boys and girls teams from nine schools travelled to the Glebe for a bumper day of football.  Glenswilly NS boys and Kilmacrennan NS girls were victorious in the Elaine Winstor Friel and the Susan Carr Cup large schools competitions respectively.  Scoil Mhuire Cresslough NS took the Andrew Duffy Memorial Shield in the Small Schools competition. 
Letterkenny Gaels would like to congratulate all the schools involved, winners and runners up. A special word of thanks to Jim Clarke, his organising committee and all the school teachers for all the hard work throughout the school year in making this great competition a success.
Letterkenny Gaels were represented by John McDermott and Brian Sweeney from the Underage Football sub-committee. Shaun McGilloway and Niall Diver assisted with the officiating of the games and Yvonne Ní Bhaoil made sure the teachers and coaches received a well deserved cup of tea and a sandwich.
Well done all.
