Donegal manager Rory Gallagher has suffered a blow tonight following the announcement that Dermot Molloy has left the panel.
Molloy found game time hard to come by in recent seasons under McGuinness.
However, Molloy did play in this year’s All-Ireland Final and scored a fine point when he was introduced as a second-half substitute for Rory Kavanagh.
Molloy also appeared as a late substitute in Donegal’s All-Ireland win against Mayo in 2012.
Molloy didn’t start a game for Donegal in the championship since their win over Antrim in 2011.
He was used regularly from the bench but has grown increasingly frustrated at having to play a bit-part role.
He did feature for Donegal in the Dr McKenna Cup competition and played in the victory over Fermanagh.
However, Molloy doesn’t feel he’ll get more game time this season under Rory Gallagher and has taken the decision to quit the panel.
Molloy will now focus his attentions on club duties with Naomh Conaill who’s season will get underway next month.
