Anything that I discussed had been said before the publication. “Our achievements this year were incredible and the times we shared will stay with me forever. It was an incredible time to be a Donegal player. At the end of the season there was a sense of unfinished business, but due to present circumstances it will remain as that for me.”The double All-Star revealed various secrets about training under Jim McGuinness as well as other revealing aspects of the team.“Anything that I discussed had been said before the publication. Our achievements this year were incredible and the times we shared will stay with me forever.

It’s just unfortunate that this whole sorry mess had to go as far as they have done,” write Devenney.
