For the second year in succession Letterkenny Gaels will compete in both the A and B Michael Murphy Sports and Leisure Junior finals. It’s been an eventful few years for them as they compete in their third A final in succession and won promotion to Division 2 for the first time last year and consolidated their position there in 2022. Carn, promoted from Division 4 last year, did not set the world on fire with their league form but have really come good in the championship. They will undoubtedly go into this game as underdogs but their only championship defeat was to today’s opponents and that was where the Gael’s had home advantage.
Both Junior B semi-finals were cracking games and both decided in extra time. Naomh Ultan were the surprise packet accounting for last yea’s beaten finalists, and probably the 2022 favourites Naomh Padraig , Leifear. An imtriguing game is in prospect.
