Bonner throws his hat into the ring for Donegal job

Declan Bonner

DECLAN Bonner has confirmed that he will allow his name to go forward for the position of Donegal senior team manager.

Bonner has been the favourite for the role since the vacancy opened after Rory Gallagher stepped away last month.


The 1992 All-Ireland winner took a few weeks to weigh up his options but has now decided to go for the job.

“A number of clubs have put my name forward, and I will be allowing it to stay in the ring,” Bonner told the Donegal News this week.

“It’s a position that I didn’t expect to come up so soon. I had to talk to a lot of people including my family and work, to see if it was even feasible to allow my name to go forward.

“I’ve had a lot of meetings over the last few weeks to see the lie of the land, and I’m happy to move forward on it now.”


Donegal face Mayo on Sunday at 3pm.
