Donegal GAA is in mourning this week following the death of their county goalkeeping coach Pat Shovelin.
Aged 41, he had been battling against a rare but aggressive form of cancer for the past year.
The Ardara man first came to prominence under Jim McGuinness’s tenure with Donegal seniors and U-21s, where he played a major part in their provincial and All-Ireland success.
Despite his illness, Pat remained part of the U-21 set-up under Declan Bonner, going on to achieve Ulster provincial success.
Donegal County Board Chaiman Sean Dunnion says Pat’s death is a major loss.
