Inter-generational sporting weekend Donegal

Inter-generational sporting weekend 27th – 28th October

The connections between Donegal and Football span generations and this October will see a senior and an under-12 team take on their Scottish counter-parts in a friendly soccer match in Gweedore in the heart of the Donegal Gaeltacht.

Following their match on Saturday morning, the members of the under 12 team will take to the Wild Atlantic Waves on sea kayaks while the seniors take to the pitch.   Medals will be presented to the victorious at a buffet dinner on Saturday evening and this will be followed by live entertainment and the appearance of a mystery celebrity guest……

Sunday morning will include a tour of Glenveagh National Park – a remote and hauntingly beautiful wilderness of rugged mountains, pristine lakes, tumbling waterfalls and enchanted native oak woodland in the heart of the Derryveagh Mountains in the north west of County Donegal.  At Glenveagh, a genealogist will be available to help anybody who would like to explore their roots before lunch.  So, brush down the soccer boots, or just grab your supporter’s scarf for an unforgettable sporting week-end back in the old sod this October.
