Clann legend hangs up his boots
Clann na nGael would like to advise that our Senior player Donal Shine has decided to bring an end to his playing career due to ongoing injury concerns.
Donie has enjoyed a glittering playing career for both club and county. He was instrumental in the Roscommon Minors claiming the All-Ireland title in 2006. Donie also won two Connacht Senior titles and will always be remembered for his man of the match performance in the 2010 Final against Sligo.
Over the years, Donie had some memorable performances in the Clann jersey, culminating with captaining the club to our 21st county title in 2018.
Donie also won the club’s Player of the Year award a record five times, which speaks volumes of the consistent excellence of his displays during his playing career.
Donie was one of the greatest ever players to wear the Clann colours and everyone in Clann na nGael wish him the very best in the future.
