FRANK MCGLYNN described as ‘something very special’ receiving the 2015 Donegal Footballer of the Year award last night.
The Glenfin man made his Donegal debut against St Mary’s College in the Dr McKenna Cup of 2006 and has made over 100 appearances for the county since.
An All-Star and Footballer of the Year nominee in 2012, McGlynn has won three Ulster SFCs and an All-Ireland since 2011.

Even though he’s only 29, McGlynn has had to stave off retirement rumours after recent campaigns – but he has no desire to hang up the boots.
“It’s the players you play with,” he told Donegal Sport Hub.
“It’s special to go to training with the same attitude among the 30 players. Everyone is pulling in the one direction and everybody wants to be successful.
“Losing the final in 2014 spurred us on. With the successful minor and under-21 players coming through you can’t help but go back for more.”
