Naomh Conaill U-13s
History was made in the Naomh Conaill club last Saturday when the club won its first ever U-13 championship at Division 1 (A Grade). This was achieved by a 3-7 to 3-5 victory over St. Eunan’s Letterkenny at Pairc Taobhoige, Glenfin after a very exciting and tense final with the result in doubt right up till the end. Great credit for this must go to this very dedicated group of young players and their parents. The team is managed and coached by Seosamh Mac Ceallabhuí, who has to be highly commended for his Trojan and committed work with the youth of N. Conaill. Well done to all involved with the team.
