Donegal GAA thanks Rory Gallagher for his ‘massive contribution’

Donegal GAA county committee has issued a statement extending its thanks and appreciation to Rory Gallagher for, what it says, has been his ‘massive contribution’ to the county’s footballers over the last seven years.

The statement, from County PRO Ed Byrne, referred to Rory’s huge input into Donegal football, claiming three Ulster titles and the All-Ireland crown in 2012.

It also said his replenishment of the panel in 2017 following a spate of retirements means that the county’s young footballers are on a firm standing to build on their introduction to senior inter county football in the coming seasons.

The statement also thanks the various people who formed Rory’s backroom teams since 2015.

Gallagher leaves Donegal in Division 1 of the Allianz Leagues.

The statement ended by saying that in the coming weeks, the county’s attentions will turn to identifying a suitable and quality replacement to carry on the good work and structures Rory leaves in place.

Ed Byrne praised Rory Gallagher’s committment over seven years.
