Eleven teams from all over the country including former team mates from Gweedore United F.C., Keadue Rovers F.C. and CLG Naomh Mhúire were all well represented on the day and old friends from as far as Dublin, Laghey, Kilmacrennan, Termon and other local teams turned up to celebrate their friend on this great occassion

The day began with 3 groups being played on 3 pitches, two semi finals with eventual winners being Na Fir G who beat Tessie’s Bar in the final following a close contest.

Gweedore United F.C. would like to thank the Gallagher and Duffy families, the teams, the 3 referees on the day and supporters that turned out and everyone who helped out on the day to make it a great success and hopefully look forward to making this an annual event in memory of a true friend the late Frankie Pat Gallagher 1963-2011.
