Glenties Comprehensive School art teacher, Mathew Mannering designed the club crest in 1982 after consultations with members of the club council. He featured several of the local historic monuments and artefacts, surrounding a central cross signifying the area’s religious heritage. The 4,000 year-old portal dolmen at Kilclooney, the circular island fort (known as O’Boyle’s Fort or ‘The Bawan’) on Loughadoon and the early bronze age gold lunula found in Drumboghill in the early 1900s made the final selection.
Above the centrally located lunula is the holy island of Inishkeel (associated with Saints Conall Caol and Dallán Forgaill) surrounded by the ubiquitous sea.
The crest is unusual in not featuring any golfing imagery, focusing instead on the historic roots of the area. The places mentioned above may be viewed in the photo gallery under ‘local area’.
