The 1992 All Ireland winning manager was joined in Croke Park for the announcement by former winners Billy Morgan, Frank McGuigan, Jimmy Keaveney, Donie O’Sullivan, Paddy Doherty and Peter Nolan.
A legend across the GAA community, Brian has enjoyed an outstanding career both as a player and manager for over forty years.
An All-Star in 1972, he featured in the first Donegal team to win an Ulster Championship that year.
Brian has also had an illustrious managerial career including leading Ulster to ten Railway Cups as well as leading the Irish Compromise Rules Teams in 2000 and 2001.
Commenting at the presentation, Suzanne Holmes communications director, MBNA said Brian’s achievements were matched only by his love of the game.
“Brian’s achievements as both a player and a manager are matched only by his love and commitment to Gaelic Football and to the GAA as a whole.
“We are delighted and honoured to recognise Brian’s achievements and welcome him into the MBNA Kick Fada Hall of Fame. We have no doubt that Brian will continue to play an influential role within the GAA in the years ahead and we wish him every success.”
Now in its tenth year the MBNA Hall of Fame Award has recognised many of the greats of Gaelic Football.
