Donegal manager Jim McGuinness and Donegal team captain, Michael Murphy accepted the overall Donegal Rehab People of the Year Award on behalf of the entire Donegal team at a gala function hosted by Rehab Donegal in the Radisson Hotel, Letterkenny on Friday night.
More than 300 people attended the event which is sponsored by Donegal County Council with the Donegal Democrat Group as media sponsor.
Jim McGuinness told the audience that he was honoured to accept the award but felt that having heard stories of courage, giving and generosity related through the evening in relation to other award winners that he felt the overall award could have been awarded to anyone of the other winners.
Seamus Neely, Donegal County Manager, presenting the overall award, commended Jim McGuinness, Michael Murphy and the Donegal GAA team for the joy they gave to Donegal people across the world on September 23rd and since that time.
