THERE was another huge crowd of enthusiastic fans in Carndonagh when the Sam Maguire came calling with the Donegal team.

It was a very special moment for Carn man Leonard Harkin (sure aren’t they all Harkins up there!)

He had travelled all the way from Melbourne in Australia with his wife Peggy to see Sam return to the hills.

Great pix from Anne Diver. Thanks Anne.
