LEO MCLOONE had a busy weekend between county and club.
McLoone (pictured above) was part of the Donegal panel that were defeated 2-13 to 0-11 by Mayo in the All-Ireland quarter-final at GAA HQ on Saturday evening but had the boots back on on Sunday afternoon at Tírconaill Park.
McLoone is involved in the Naomh Conaill management team and spoke to Charlie Collins in the wake of their County U-21 championship win at Four Masters in Donegal town, 4-6 to 0-15.
Having taken six months out from the inter-county scene before returning in June, McLoone, still only 26, believes there’s no need for knee-jerk reactions in regards retirement of any of his county colleagues and is already thinking about 2016 for Donegal.
“People are asking questions a bit early,” McLoone said. “If a player decides to step away he steps away. There’s plenty of experience. You would hope everyone sticks on. I don’t think age comes into it. I’ll be looking forward to a big season next season.”
