Letterkenny Rugby Club U18’s team are delighted to be involved and to support the campaign.

Speaking on behalf of Letterkenny Rugby Club Gordon Curley, O’Gorman Cunningham Solicitors, who are also club sponsors for youth development said: “We have a fantastic sponsor in Jigsaw Donegal and a great bunch of U18 lads, who are great ambassadors for our club promoting positive mental health.

“Our U18’s have taken on and promoted the benefits of positive mental health through the sport of rugby over the last number of years and are a credit to themselves.”
