Underage Football Nursery and Football Academy Since fielding their first underage football team in 1996, the Letterkenny Gaels GAA Club Nursery and Underage Football Academy have gone from strength to strength.

Hundreds of Boys and Girls from age 4 up to 18 take part in training, non-competitive GO games and underage leagues and tournaments representing Donegal’s youngest GAA club throughout the county all year round.

During the summer months, our state-of-the-art clubhouse and training fields at Pairc na nGael are a hive of activity, with underage boys’ and girls’ games and training taking place seven days a week.

A place where we can all feel accepted

Built on the foundation of our successful Underage Football Development Pan launched in 2015, the structures, standards and environment evident at Letterkenny Gaels GAA Club is one of the best in the country.

The primary focus at the Underage Football Nursery and Academy is to provide all children with equal opportunities to play football in a fun environment. Our highly qualified coaching teams work on fostering an ethos of participation, fun and inclusion.

The Underage Football Nursery and Academy adopted the GO games “football-for-all” model promoted by the GAA at the time.

Enable your child's full potential.

At Letterkenny Gaels GAA Club, we are very proud of all our boys and girls and their achievements on and off the field.

The club has been represented on GAA and LGFA underage county development squads and teams for many years, demonstrating the quality of the coaching and player development pathway at Pairc na nGael.

Many of our boys and girls play for their local primary and secondary school teams and take part in youth development programmes such as the Dermot Early Youth Leadership Initiative.
