Kilmacrennan NS win their first Letterkenny Cup

Kilmacrennan NS girls were worthy winners of the Letterkenny & District Schools cup for the first time ever recently. The tournament consists of all the primary schools in the Letterkenny Gaels, St Eunans, Glenswilly, Termon, Newtowncunningham and St Michaels catchment areas. The tournament is now in its fourth year and continues to grow. The girls were in Group 2 when the draw was made along with Glenswilly NS, Lurgybrack NS and SMGS Letterkenny. The girls had three tough games in the group stages but three wins saw them top the group and qualify for finals day in the Letterkenny Gaels pitch.The semi final saw them involved in a tight tussle with Woodlands NS.  Playing with the aid of a stiff breeze in the 1st half, the girls failed to convert the chances that came their way and went in at half time a point down. However, a much improved 2nd half showing saw the girls prevail by a four point margin.

The other semi final saw SMGS, Letterkenny win through against Illistrin NS to set up a repeat of the group stage encounter between Kilmacrennan NS and SMGS. The final saw the Kilmacrennan girls opt to play with the aid of the breeze in the 1st half again. However, unlike the semi final, the girls this time converted their chances and went in at the break with a commanding lead. They held on to this lead for the remainder of the game to run out winners on a scoreline of 2-5 to 0-3. The final whistle saw scenes of jubilation as the girls received the Susan Carr Memorial Cup for the first time ever.
