The club Annual Awards takes place on Friday evening at 7pm in the Abbey Hotel, Donegal Town and will highlight the developmental, administrative, coaching and competitive achievements of the year - an unprecedented and successful year when eight club athletes gained International vests and 19 finished in a top three at National championships.
