About bloody time …. The county board should’ve just informed Letterkenny Chamber that this was the case last week…. If the team are ravelling via Pettigo, then Donegal Town is the natural place for the homecoming … much ado about nothing…
Thats that sorted. End of story, Now to the media if you want to back Jim and the team do not print anything more on the story. Or anything else that is going to distract them from there job in hand. There will be plenty time after the final to publish all stories, Up Donegal.
Fair play! Now no more word about it until about 6pm on the 23rd September! Hopefully we’ll be celebrating, but we’ll be proud regardless what the result is!
Sam is coming home , GREATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT
Common sense prevails.Now for the REAL business on 23 Sept.!!
Who cares really where the celebrations initially take place..All people from donegal will be joining in for sure..We will all be there in spirit . GO DONEGAL…
Well football not really my area of expertise but Up Donegal!!
Delighted to hear that this importnat matter has been settled, my God we really don’t need anything that will impact on the Jim & the team and we defintely don’t want or need Donegal reported negatively in the National media. Up Donegal all the way!!!Ps by the way Joe Cannon Ocras in Newtowncunningham has painted his takeway in the Donegal colours & thats whats it all about!!
r Why the matter was ever brought up at this time is beyond me? dident hear much about where they came to before they got this far in the final, perhaps these places thought it would be a good money spinner now that its got to where it is, Donegal town was always the most accomodating until now and everyone was quite ok with it so hopefully thats how it will stay,if they want them to travel to other towns at a later time with the cup hopefully then that would be as good,the team will be glad to get back to a place they are familiar and happy with.
pity it has taken the bandwagon 20 years to re emerge!to all the ‘die hards’ mccumhaill park wasnt even full for any Donegal games this year and the team dont miraculously appear during August!
@ Betty Holmes’ post.
Politics would not be your forte nor specialty either!
well done donegal county board, if letterkenny had sense they wouldnt be trying to annoy the county team by trying these silly tactics of trying to change the homecoming route that every team has come home everytime they have won anything. so why the hell should it be in letterkeny than donegal town
good and that’s an end to that
It just goes to show that some people only look at getting an angle and what’s in it for themselves, if they were true supporters they wouldn’t even bring the subject up. So for the people who started this in the first place I’ll leave you with a quote from WB Yeats.
” What need you being come to sense,
But fumble in a greasy till,
And add the halfpence to the pence”.

Castlebar will be the home coming venue the way everyone is getting carried away
Enough Already !!!
NO MORE headlines, discussions, updates or distractions !!
Let’s please SUPPORT Jim & the team and let them get on with their training!!
I’m no GAA expert but the splutter splatter talk of politicians and business men in that thread really p”’ed me off. However, it was nice to meet a Letterkenny business man in the hills last weekend and hear he had turned down a corporate box ticket to leave space for a non fair weather supporter. On the other hand, I do know Jim, and some of the lads, and truly believe if they avail of half of Jim’s motivational skills and the coaches and physios keep them injury free then the WHOLE county will be celebrating.
who wants to travel to letterkenny from donegal town anyway for a homecoming im glad donegal town is being kept for all donegal social gatherings
What about convoy sur
