Letterkenny has been very successful in the Clubs Competitions this year. We find ourselves in the unusual position of having to play Portsalon in the three finals, i.e. the Seniors, the Minor League and the Donegal League. The second leg of the Donegal Inter Club Seniors League ( over 50’s) final is taking place on Sunday next 22nd at Letterkenny Golf Club @ 2pm. Letterkenny taking on Portsalon Golf Club and hold a slight lead from the first leg having won three matches away. With home advantage and leading from the first leg Letterkenny will start as favourites on Sunday but are well aware of the threat that Portsalon will pose. All support would be gratefully appreciated for this match.
