Well done to the Derry Gaels U14 footballers on winning the shield on Sunday last in the County Grounds in their replay against a very gallant Avondale team. It was a great effort by all the players involved on the day and proves hard work pays off.  Well done to all the management involved in keeping these lads together and playing a good brand of open football. Next up is the annual Aughrim juvenile raffle that is so essential to keeping the club running and your support will be so important for this to be a continued success.
