Listen: Oisin Gallen vows to keep learning and improving


Rising Donegal ace Oisin Gallen says he wants to keep learning as he bids to establish himself in Declan Bonner’s Championship plans.

The Sean MacCumhaills forward was Man of the Match on Sunday, kicking four points as Donegal defeated Kildare 1-20 to 0-10 to reach the Division 2 final.

In his first spring of senior inter-county action, Gallen has been to the fore already and the 18-year-old is enjoying life at the coalface.

“It’s good to be playing inside,” Gallen told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub.

“I’m learning every game and every training. It’s a great experience.

I’m trying to keep my head down in training and push on. All I can do is keep working hard.

Our aim all along was to get to Division 1. We have to kick on now in the final.

“It’s all about getting the result. We had an aim to be in Croke Park and that’s where we’re heading.”

Saturday’s final against Meath will be Gallen’s first taste of action at GAA headquarters.
