Donegal have dominated the nominations for the Ulster GAA Writers’ Footballer of the year award, with three Donegal players being shortlisted for the coveted title.
Neil McGee earns a nomination for a stunning year at the heart of the Donegal defence.
McGee was absolutely immense for Donegal all year, and will almost certainly get a third All-Star award at the GAA-GPA All-Star award ceremony later this month.
McGee has also been shortlisted alongside Dublin star Diarmuid Connolly and Kerry’s James O’Donoghue for the GAA-GPA Football of the year award.
Talismanic captain Michael Murphy has also earned a nomination for his consistency, leadership and outstanding quality throughout the year.
Murphy became the first Donegal man ever to lift the Anglo Celt cup for the third time as captain earlier this summer, when Donegal exacted revenge on Monaghan in the Ulster final in Clones.
Ryan McHugh, enjoyed a breakthrough summer, he featured during the ill-fated campaign of 2013, but he played a pivotal role this summer.
His performances were simply outstanding all summer, and Donegal followers will never forget his two-goal brace against Dublin in the All-Ireland semi-final.
He’s a hot favourite to win the GAA-GPA Young player of the year award after a truly remarkable season for the young Kilcar man.
The awards for the Ulster GAA Writers Awards ceremony will take place at The Great Northern Hotel in Bundoran, on Saturday the 1st of November.
