Donegal Primary Schools Athletics Challenge

The Primary Schools Challenge has been rolled out initially in Mac Cumhaill Park Ballybofey and in the last 30 years at Finn Valley AC. The event which each school in the county this week received details and an invitation to attend has grown in popularity and the response from principals has continued in a most encouraging manner .

There are many areas which traditionally hold area games based on the programme sending forward their qualifiers while thats not possible in other areas ,all are accomodated as the rules outline . Area Qualifiers normally are held late May and the final happens June 1st .
