With Active Donegal month now in full swing some of the county’s sports stars from days gone by are determined to ‘Just Try It’ once again when the heroes of Donegal’s All-Ireland winning team from 1992 pull on the boots to face a Finn Harps legends side in Finn Park, Ballybofey at 7.30pm on June 27th. Three local charities – Meningitis Trust, Donegal Hospice and the Donegal Branch of the Alzheimer’s Association – will benefit from the proceeds of the night that will include a reception in the Finn Valley Sports Centre after the game.And there is no doubt that the battle of the sporting greats is sure to attract a huge crowd eager to see how Donegal stars like Martin McHugh and Manus Boyle will fare against Harps stars like Declan Boyle and Paul Hegarty.Indeed both managers – Declan Bonner for the Donegal ’92 side and Sean McGowan for Finn Harps – have assembled strong squads and are anticipating a great game.Both team managers are likely to feature for their own sides in a player-manager capacity with Sean McGowan confirming he has secured the services of key players already for all areas of the pitch. Harps and Fanad legend Bosco Gallagher will feature in goal for the Harps men with Declan Boyle and John Quigg to feature in defence, Paul Hegarty and Kenny Harkin confirmed for the engine room of midfield and legendary goalscorer Con McLaughlin geared up to lead the Harps attack.The Donegal side meanwhile will have both their 92 keepers, Gary Walsh and Paul Callaghan available for selection while Barry McGowan, John Cunningham, Charlie Mulgrew, Martin McHugh, Manus Boyle, Tony Boyle and Joyce McMullan also set to take to the field for the green and gold of Donegal.The game is just one of many events being organized across Donegal as part of Active Donegal month and Donegal Sports Partnership Coordinator Myles Sweeney said he was delighted that these sporting legends had agreed to take part in the game.“We know how passionate the people of Donegal have always been about their sport and the supporters who have followed Donegal and Finn Harps have been treated to some magnificent performances from the players who have lined out for both teams over the years.”But, he added, it will be extra special to be able to have members of the county’s only ever all-Ireland winning team pull on the boots again – albeit in a different sport – twenty years after that magnificent day in Croke Park.“These players have earned the right to have legendary status in the county and it is fantastic that they are still prepared to pull on the boots and get active to help these very worthy charities,” he added.The charity game will be followed by a function in the Finn Valley Centre that will include a 90s sports quiz and there will be autographed jerseys among the prizes.

Donegal and Carrickfergus, Co Antrim.He died in 1883, being succeeded by his brother, and the barony became extinct. Until today!However it’s understood the title will not be referred to out of sensitivy to Ireland’s independence.

THE new X Factor judge taking the place of Cheryl Cole has a bizarre link to Donegal…Rapper Tulisa Contostavlos has revealed her cousins were in the group which wrote the famous song ‘Mary from Dungloe’!They were sons of Tommy Byrne, who won the Feis Ceoil three times in a row and later went on to sing with Val Doonican and the Four Ramblers. By the 1960s, Tommy Byrne’s sons Brian and Mick had formed a musical group called the Spicelanders, which played different folk clubs and participated in various ballad contests around Ireland.Soon, the Byrne brothers joined forces with multi-instrumentalist Donal Lunny and merged their two groups – Lunny’s had been called The Emmet Folk – to create Emmet Spiceland.The band topped the Irish charts with hits like Báidín Fheidhlimi, Down By The Sally Gardens and, most famously, Mary From Dungloe – the song credited with sparking the creation of the Mary from Dungloe International Festival.The festival continues to this day and the 2011 programme takes place next month in Donegal, with organisers writing on the festival site that the April 1968 Emmet Spiceland release of the traditional ballad ‘could well be described as the foundation stone on which the “Mary from Dungloe” Festival was about to be built. The rapper’s mum is from Dublin and she admitted: “I’ve still got loads of family there. Most of them are over 60, so I don’t expect them to come to the shows when we play in Ireland.“Mum used to take me to Ireland on holidays when I was younger. I remember visiting Cork. She’s still very close to her roots.”THE X FACTOR JUDGE – AND HER LINK TO MARY FROM DUNGLOE! was last modified: June 6th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:dungloeMary From Dungloeshowbiztulisax factor
