Former (and in our words ‘Legendary’) Donegal GAA player and manager Brian McEniff has always held a huge passion for the GAA. From a young age, he played for his club St. Joseph’s and for his county and province through the 70’s. From there, he went on to manage the Donegal senior football team and led them to an epic All Ireland victory against Dublin. In Brian’s words himself he holds a certain grá for the county of Donegal alongside all past & present Donegal footballers. Listening to Brian speak about Co. Donegal is something extraordinary and monumental.
This Saturday the 16th of September 2017 (on the eve of the 2017 All Ireland Football Final) the GPA will recognise Brian for his contribution to the GAA as he picks up a very well- deserving lifetime achievement award. Brian will also be in attendance in Croke Park on Sunday to see the 1992 Donegal team take their bow at half time as part of the silver jubilee team.
We may be a bit biased but we couldn’t be any prouder of Brian and all of his success. We wish Brian nothing but the best for all the celebrations this weekend.
