Taking place at Rathmullan beach, the ‘Double Dip for Donegal’ invites members of the public to jump into the sea, not once, but twice, to show their support for the county minor and senior teams ahead of their double header at Croke Park the following week.
The ‘Double Dip for Donegal’ is open to all ages and participants are more than welcome to wear their Milford or Donegal jerseys.
Donation boxes will be placed on the beach and all funds raised are in aid of the Donegal County Training Fund.
This is a great chance to show the county minor and senior teams that our parishes are fully behind them.
So make sure you make it to Rathmullan Beach on Sunday, 14th September at 6.00pm, (beside the car park, to the left hand side of the pier).
You can also keep an eye on the Milford GAA Facebook for further updates.
