SEÁN McVeigh savoured the moment as he climbed the steps of the Hogan Stand to lift the Nicky Rackard Cup yesterday.
Donegal staged a superb comeback performance to overcome Mayo at Croke Park.
The stadium might’ve been empty, but it didn’t take away from the feeling as McVeigh skippered Donegal to a famous win.
“That was class,” McVeigh told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub.
“The most pleasing thing is beating a really good Mayo side, but battling back from eight points down, every man in it together.
“There has been so much thrown at us all year, but to stick in together and get over the line was pure class.
“The hunger from the lads. Every single person was going in head first. That was key to winning. It means a lot. we want to be playing at the highest level possible.”
