Burt GAA Club Notes
It’s shaping up to be a great summer! Well done to the Donegal senior footballers who are now into the All-Ireland semi-finals. It’s sure to be another cracker on the 28th August.
Many thanks to any club member who helped the Burt Residents’ group with their community fun day and model aircraft show on Sunday past in the grounds of Burt GAA.

The U16 hurlers had a convincing 3-12 to 0-2 win over Setanta in the league last Thursday evening in Killygordon. This Thursday they are away to Buncrana. Joe will notify everybody on bus times and arrangements. Theay are also away to Carndonagh for a re-arranged match on Tuesday 2 August.
