DONEGAL GAA have released the list of their annual award winners ahead of Saturday-week’s County Banquet in Donegal Town.
Donegal captain Michael Murphy (pictured) has been named as the Senior Player of the Year.
Murphy recently collected his third GAA/GPA All-Star Award – after being previously a winner in 2012 and 2014 – following a stellar summer.
Murphy led the way as Donegal retained their Ulster title with an excellent display at Croke Park having earlier won the Division 2 final against Meath.
Ladies Football All-Star nominee Geraldine McLaughlin has been named as the Lady Footballer of the Year, while Malachy McCann, the Buncrana manager, is to receive a Lifetime Achievement award.
The event is being held by CLG Dhún na nGall in conjunction with the Donegal Ladies County Board. The Donegal Senior squad, Ulster and Division 2 Champions, and the Donegal Senior Ladies, Ulster Champions 2019, will be honoured.
Donegal will also honour 2012 All-Ireland winners Frank McGlynn and David Walsh.
The winner of the graham Sheamuis Mhic Geidigh 2019 will also be presented on the night. The winner of this award will be announced on RTE Raidio na Gaeltachta next Wednesday.
