There was another huge attendance for the Sunday Morning U-10 Football Academy last week.
Both the U14’s and the Minors lost to Aodh Rua in good games. The U14 Camogie team had a great day out in the first Blitz of the year defeating Burt A & B, Carndonagh, Dungloe, MacCumhaills and were unlucky to lose by 1 goal to Four Masters. St Eunan’s attended an U- 8 Blitz hosted by Gweedore on Sunday 10th April. St Eunan’s, Gweedore and Dungloe all fielded two teams with each team playing five games. Both St Eunan’s teams were very competitive in all their games and particularly so in their last game against each other. An enjoyable sporting day had by all especially with many parents travelling to support. Thanks to Gweedore for a well organised Blitz with generous refreshments in the club house afterwards. U-14 play MacCumhaills away this week. The Minors play at home to MacCumhaills this Thursday.

We extend our deepest sympathies to the family of our great clubman, Mickey “The Boy” O’Donnell who passed away in the last week. One of our club’s and indeed Letterkenny’s great characters was given a great send off by the large attendance at his funeral on Monday.
