Two Donegal players are heading to the 9th European Deaf Football Championships this week.
Bonagee United’s Noel O’Donnell and Gavin Grier from Milford United are part of the Republic of Ireland team.
O’Donnell and Grier are on the Irish team that jets out to Heraklion, on the Greek island of Crete, for the Championships.
The Championships run from June 2-16.
O’Donnell was a member of the Bonagee squad that won the Donegal League Division One title this season.
Grier played for Milford United in Sunday’s Brian McCormick Sports Cup final, a game they lost to Keadue Rovers. Grier’s cousin Catherine has played for the Irish Deaf Women’s Futsal team in the recent past.
In Heraklion, Ireland face Hungary on June 3, Turkey on June 5 and Denmark on June 7.Tags:
