KEITH DUGGAN HAS SPOKEN about the ‘fascinating’ experience of being Jim McGuinness’s ghost-writer on his autobiography.
Until Victory Always: A Memoir was officially launched in Glenties on Thursday night.
Duggan hails from Ballyshannon and is now based in Galway. Chief Sports Writer with The Irish Times, Duggan is a two-time Sports Journalist of the Year winner, who was a regular opponent of McGuinness’s on the basketball court during the 1990s.
Duggan spoke to Donegal Sport Hub about his relationship with McGuinness and the experience of writing the book.

“It wasn’t difficult to say yes to,” he said.
“Like every Donegal person, I was really interested in the story; in Jim’s story, obviously, but also how him and how the team transformed themselves in that period.
“To get to hear that story first hand was fascinating. We were sometimes pressed for time and we’d end up chatting at mad hours, but it was an easy transition from his voice onto the page.”
