Two Donegal players receive Ulster Schools All Stars

Two Donegal players have been selected in the 2019/2020 Danske Bank Football All Star team.

Loreto Community School, Milford’s Rory O’Donnell has been selected at midfield, while Shane O’Donnell (St Eunan’s College, Letterkenny) has been named at left half-forward.

Shane O’Donnell follows in the footsteps of his older brother Niall, who won an All Star in 2016/17.


Shane, who plays his club football with St Eunan’s, becomes the 11th student from St Eunan’s College to pick up a prestigious All Star. Sean Mc Ewen, Hugh Kerr, Mark McGowan, Michael Murphy, Ciaran Cannon, Sean Patton, Cormac Callaghan, Eoin O’Boyle, and Brian Diver have also been recognised at this level.

Rory O’Donnell, who plays his club football with Milford, is the first player from Loreto Community School to receive an Ulster Schools All Star.
