ST EUNAN’S GAA club have joined the floods of well wishers to Letterkenny Rovers ahead of Saturday’s FAI Intermediate Cup final at Aviva Stadium.
Rovers take on Leinster Senior League side Crumlin United, the first time ever the Cathedral town club has been at this stage.
All around the town, ‘good luck’ signs have been posted on shop fronts and on business windows as Eamon McConigley’s team prepare for the biggest day in the club’s history.
This afternoon, St Eunan’s signed up with their own message to their townsmen.

“There has always been good relations between the two clubs and it’s a lovely gesture from the St Eunan’s club to show their support to Letterkenny Rovers,” said the Letterkenny Rovers chairman, Dessie Kelly.
“There have been some fantastic players who have played for both St Eunan’s and Letterkenny Rovers down the years. In fact, the current chairman of St Eunan’s, Paul Carr, was a fabulous soccer player and played for many years with Rovers.”
St Eunan’s have a big game of their own this weekend. On Sunday, they face Kilcar in their opening game in the 2016 Michael Murphy Sports Donegal Senior Football Championship at O’Donnell Park.
By that stage, they hope that a new piece of silverware, in the form of the Intermediate Cup, will be pride of place in Letterkenny.
