One of Donegal’s most prolific gaelic football talents Charlie Mulgrew is this week’s choice for ‘My Donegal’. Having captained Donegal to success in the Mc Kenna Cup in 1991, Charlie Mulgrew was then a member of the heroic panel in the 1992 All-Ireland Final.
His managing career has led St. Eunan’s to a county championship final and Fermanagh to the All-Ireland semi-final in 2004. With both football and business endeavours in the county, Charlie Mulgrew has great love and respect for Donegal.
