O' Donnell Park (Irish: Páirc Uí Dhomhnaill) is a GAA stadium in County Donegal, Ireland. The home ground of the Naomh Adhamhnáin club, it is situated between the Letterkenny Regional Sports and Leisure Complex and Ballymacool Park on the outskirts of the town. The Donegal senior inter-county football team uses O'Donnell Park as a venue for matches.
The ground has hosted Gaelic games since the 1930s when CLG Naomh Adhamhnáin bought the land for £300. The ground opened on Sunday 2 May 1937, with the Bishop of Raphoe's blessing of the park, a hurling match between Donegal and Antrim, an address from GAA President Bob O'Keeffe and a football match between Donegal and Armagh.
During the Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2006, the ground was used as a makeshift campsite for visitors to the town for the duration of the festival. On 11 November 2008, CLG Naomh Adhamhnáin confirmed that it had completed the purchase of 14.5 acres (59,000 m2) of land adjoining O'Donnell Park, which it intended to develop over the coming years into additional pitches for the club.
On 25 March 2007, O'Donnell Park hosted its first inter-county football match in three decades when Donegal beat Kerry by 1-15 to 0-13 in the Allianz Football League. There was a half-hour delay after the Kerry team were unable to arrive on time due to fog at the airport. The match was broadcast live on TG4.
