Another quick post to say Good Luck to everyone involved with Saint Eunan’s GAA Club, who take on Glenties on Sunday in the Donegal County Senior Football Final.
Highland Radio will have full coverage of the Final from about 3pm (local time) on Sunday. You can tune in from around the world on Highland’s website. I’ll be joining the crowds in MacCumhaill Park in Ballybofey for what looks set to be an excellent game.
I’ve just received news that Colaiste Ailigh, the Gaelcolaiste (Irish Language Secondary School) in Letterkenny has just been allocated funding under a new E555 million scheme announced today by the Minister of Education. This will enable the school to establish a permanent base in the town, most probably in the Ballyraine/Gortlee area.
This is great news, and is a credit to all those involved. Many of those involved in Colaiste Ailigh were also involved in establishing the highly regarded Gaelscoil Adhmnain, the Irish Language Primary School in Letterkenny. Donegal VEC is also highly involved with this project.
Until now, Colaiste Ailigh has been based in the former home of the Dunnion family, just off the High Road. The school will now be able to build a modern facility to cater for the needs of the students long into the future.
