Club-by-club guide to the Junior A Football Championship

Downings won the Donegal Junior A title last season and have since made it to Division 1 of the All-County Football League, with the competition starting again this weekend

The Donegal Junior A Football Championship gets underway this weekend with five fixtures and if history is anything to go by then perhaps Letterkenny Gaels are the team to watch.
In 2020, Downings in the junior and Cloughaneely in the intermediate were beaten finalists by St Mary's Convoy and Aodh Ruadh respectively. Both Downings and Cloughaneely put that disappointment behind them to go and win their championships the following year.
In November, Gaels were fancied by plenty but put in a flat showing in the junior final against Downings so the Letterkenny team are predicted in some quarters to go one better this season.
