The first half saw both teams trade scores in a match which was played at high intensity and the sides went in at halftime with Naomh Colmcille two points up.
The second half was more of the same with the Letterkenny men only being able to narrow the score to a single point and were always chasing the game.
Goals win games and this was ultimately the case as the visitors left the Glebe with two valuable league points.
