C.L.G. na gCealla Beaga[1] is a GAA club based in Killybegs, County Donegal, Ireland.


Founded in 1924,[2] the club has had teams break up several time in its history.[2] Na Cealla Beaga play Gaelic football and, in the past, played hurling. Na Cealla Beaga have won the Donegal Senior Football Championship 6 times, the last coming in 1996.[3] They also reached the final of the 1991 Ulster Senior Club Football Championship.

In 2002, the team was thrown out of the Championship at the semi-final stage after breaking the rules.[4]

They came from nowhere to reach the final of the 2010 Donegal Senior Football Championship, with Manus Boyle even coming out of retirement at the age of 44.[5]

The sod of the club's field was more forgiving [...] Incredibly, he has featured off the bench in recent matches and he's likely to do the same tomorrow.
