They may have been a little late (what’s four hours when you’ve won Sam Maguire!) but that didn’t stop the people of the Twin Towns from turning out in force for the Donegal team.
Huge crowds gathered in the wind and the rain for Jim McGuinness and the boys in the shadow of MacCumhaill Park – the scene of many inter-county battles down through the years.
Next year it will be the base from where Donegal defend Sam!
WITH MANY THANKS TO GERARD MCHUGH FOR THE PHOTOGRAPHS!
