THE ELECTED MEMBERS of Donegal County Council are expected to pass a motion to grant Finn Harps Football Club a Civic Reception.
The next meeting is tomorrow in Lifford and it is expected that a motion calling to give the Ballybofey club a Civic Reception will be unanimously passed.
Harps are gearing up for a return to the Premier Division for the first time since 2008 following their dramatic play-off win over Limerick FC in November.

“Officials are keen to recognise the club’s achievements in securing promotion as well as the ongoing development of the club’s underage academy and schools programmes,” a spokesperson said.
The proposal will ben tabled tomorrow by the Stranorlar Municipal Group, which is chaired by Independent Councillor Frank McBrearty Junior.
Harps are expected be the latest sports group to be accorded with a Civic Reception.
Last month, professional boxer Jason Quigley was the recipient of a Civic Reception while the Donegal senior football team, Donegal captain Michael Murphy, the Donegal senior hurling team, the Termon senior ladies team and the county’s Olympians from 2012 have all been honoured at the County House in Lifford in recent times.Tags:
