McHugh looking forward to new start under Bonner


Mark McHugh is looking forward to the new chapter in Donegal GAA under Declan Bonner. Bonner, a former All-Ireland winner in 1992 and county minor manager was named Donegal Senior boss back in September.

Although they had a disappointing 2017 McHugh told this week’s Super 8s Podcast that the Ulster side still have the talent to compete “It’s a brand new set-up with Declan (Bonner) in. We always have the talent in Donegal. Looking around the dressing room we have this year, we definitely have talent. It’s just  a case of getting it out of some of them players”

“Donegal face Kerry in their opening league game. We’re back at it in the next few weeks; working hard. We are away to Kerry in the first game of the league on the 27th (January). We need to be on our toes for that one” said McHugh.

After a tough few months with his club Kilcar where they reached the Ulster club semi-final McHugh is looking forward to returning to the county set-up: “I’m looking forward to it myself, personally. Getting back into it, meeting up with the lads. We had a long auld year with the club. We got an extra few weeks to rest up and refresh the batteries. I can’t wait to get back at it”
