ALL-IRELAND-WINNING MIDFIELDER RORY KAVANAGH believes that Donegal football is ‘in a great place’.
Kavanagh announced his retirement from the inter-county game in January and last night launched his autobiography, ‘Winning’, at a function in Letterkenny’s Mount Errigal Hotel.
Although the Donegal manager, Rory Gallagher, said the door was open for a return to the county set-up for the St Eunan’s midfielder – whom he described as ‘a big part of our set-up’ – Kavanagh poured cold water on the possibility of a volte-face.
However, Kavanagh insists that Donegal is well posied to keep dining at Gaelic football’s top table.
“I think there is a great future for Donegal,” he told Charlie Collins of Donegal Sport Hub.
“There’s a culture of winning in Donegal now. When I came in we were dreaming of Ulster success. It was a spec in the distance.
“To be competing for those things now year-on-year and having a culture of aspiring to win means that Donegal is in a great place.”
Kavanagh also featured on this week’s Donegal Sport Hub podcast. Listen to the podcast here: http://www.donegalsporthub.com/podcast-15-rory-kavanagh-talks-about-his-new-book-reflects-on-career-and-looks-to-the-future/
