The club claimed it was being prevented from appealing a decision made by the Ulster GAA which accepted that there had been a prior agreement between it and St Eunan’s not to divide boundaries.
The County Committee had backed the Gaels by 40 votes to 34 at a previous ruling. This was overturned on appeal.
“C.L.G. Gaeil Leitir Ceannainn are disappointed and concerned at recent events which have sought to deny both our Club and County Committee the right of Appeal against the recent Decision of the Hearings Committee of the Ulster Council in respect of the ongoing dispute on Club Boundaries,” said the club in a statement.
“Our Club will continue to pursue all avenues within the Official Guide of the GAA in order to ensure that the decision of County Committee on this dispute is upheld and that equality of treatment is accorded to our Club in the related process.”
The decision of the Gaels will be backed by its members who insist they cannot grow without exclusive access to players in the parish of Aughaninshin part of the town declared as their club’s catchment area.
However St Eunan’s members will be wary that the Gaels have not accepted the decision of the Ulster Council.
Tonight one Eunan’s source said: “This is disappointing. We’d rather work with the Gaels to promote gaelic games in Letterkenny. We thought they would have accepted the ruling of the Ulster Council.”
