I hope that you and all the children enjoyed the games and used the league as an opportunity to meet new friends and colleagues from the other schools. It is important to remember that the idea of this league was to celebrate the lives of two great local women from the Letterkenny area, Elaine Winston Friel and Susan Carr who spent their lives promoting the values and benefits of participating in sport and having an active lifestyle.
