Declan Bonner, the former Donegal senior manager, is back in county management following his appointment as Donegal minor manager.
Bonner, the 1992 All-Ireland winner and senior manager for three seasons at the end of the 1990s, was appointed by the Donegal County Committee last Monday night at their monthly meeting.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge I have been working with the lads for the last few season and have managed them at U-16 and U-17 level and I know all the lads well,” Bonner told the Democrat last Tuesday morning.
“There is a good bunch of lads at that age group. We won the Buncrana Cup, last year. We beat Tyrone in the final and we have qualified for the McGuigan Cup final.”

Just over two weeks since the G8 leaders departed from Fermanagh turf, retailers in Enniskillen are happy to report they didn’t take the customers with them. Over the two days of the summit, Enniskillen was referred to as a “ghost town” with many choosing to avoid the town for fear of traffic disruption and delays.
A week on, though, and the retail landscape is “back to normal,” with the shops in the town hoping that two days of lost trade will be more than compensated by long term benefits the result of increased profile and exposure.
