Elizabeth Anne is now taking orders for the new Buncrana club jersey. Keep in mind lads that they are player fit/tight fit.
If you want to order one let her know the size and number on back you require, price €50. EA also has club shorts and white shorts are in stock.
Good luck from all at the club to those members who got their Leaving Cert results. Hopefully you will have got the points you needed for your course choices.
Remember though, if you don’t get the grades you expected or the points you need for college courses, don’t despair.
Just like Donegal, there’s always more options and way’s to get where you want to go.

Summer Fun Camp
Good luck to all the kids (and the coaches and assistants!) who are taking part in the summer camp which started on the 18th August and runs until the 22nd, 10am-3pm.
With around 160 kids taking part we believe this to be one of the biggest (if not the biggest!) camps in Donegal.
Here’s hoping for some nice weather too and what a great way to spend the last few days of the summer holidays. Future stars in the making!
What a fantastic example of our GAA club on Saturday.
The club hosted the Buncrana Cup, where four quality U16 county teams from Armagh, Donegal, Monaghan and Derry battled it out to win this prestigious competition which was set up in memory of those killed in the Omagh Bomb.
The club looked after all the players and fed over 70 people upstairs.
Then the annual club BBQ was held with around 150 people turning up to enjoy the burgers, hot dogs, and various refreshments.
A highlight was the scrummy ‘lamb on a spit’ while the Inch Ramblers pounded out the tunes.
On behalf of the club and Bord na nOg, Aidan Mulholland would like to thank all helpers and volunteers for their attendance and help in organising and running these events, it’s all a team effort and thank you.
Ulster GAA are seeking to recruit a full time Regional Hurling Development Officer, as well as a small pool of Key Stage 1 coaches within the GAA Primary School coaching programme.
