In being awarded a spot in the team, Eohghan’s season was described:
“Not the season Donegal would have wanted or hoped for, but Eoghan Bán Gallagher has been a consistent driving force for the Tir Chonaill men during Declan Bonner’s tenure.
“His pace is frightening, and he constantly punched holes in the Armagh rear guard as Donegal ousted Kieran McGeeney’s men at home in the opening round of the championship.
“Gallagher starred for Bonner’s men as they reached their 10th Ulster decider in 12 years, but they just came up short in the end against a determined Derry outfit.”
