Termon GAA Minor Board in association with Kelly’s CENTRA Mountain Top Letterkenny

We are delighted to announce that Kellys Centra at the Mountain Top Letterkenny will be sponsors for both our boys and girls teams representing Donegal at Féile na nÓg at the end of June. This is a very significant sponsorship on top of their sponsorship of our Minor Board and we are deeply indebted to Máirtín and Angela for their continued support.

We ask that all parents and members LIKE our “Termon GAA Minor Board Boys and Girls” facebook page. It is the best way to keep in touch with what’s happening at underage level for all age groups

Our U6s and U8s will move to the Burn Road for “FUNdamentals” and coaching from this Saturday. The time remains the same, 10.30-11.30. Please ensure children have plenty of warm clothes.

Well done to the U12 boys on a fine display in Naomh Mhuire on Friday evening. All 22 boys played 30 minutes and there were some very impressive performances. A HUGE thanks to all the parents who took time out of their busy Friday evenings to be there, it really is very much appreciated. This Friday the boys are guests of Four Masters. Throw in is 6.30 so we will leave from The Burn Road at 5pm. Again parents please text Eddie to confirm(1) if your son can attend and (2) if he needs a lift. Remember warm clothes, gloves, gumshield and Termon socks and shorts if possible.

Bhí na gasúraí f15 gnóthach in éadan Gaeil Fhánada ar an Satharn, ach, cé go raibh siad chun tosaigh cuid mhaith den am, chaill siad amach in éadan Gaoth Dobhair ar an Luan i gComórtas Pheil na Gaeltachta. Guíonn muid gach rath ar Ghaoth Dobhair sa chluiche ceannais ag deireadh na seachtaine.

Well done to Enda Mc Cormick and James Mc Sharry and all the Donegal minor team on their Ulster Minor league success last weekend. Sadly there were no celebrations for Barry Gallagher and Paul Doherty and the U17 team but it certainly has been a great few weeks for all 4 Termon lads. Its back to club duty on Wednesday night with the NRB Div 3 Semi Final at The Burn Road with LK Gaels in opposition, again a 6.45 throw in. Good luck lads.
