One of Donegal’s best up-and-coming athletes is this weekend celebrating a first ever selection to an Irish team.

Aaron McGlynn, a student Garmscoil Chú Uladh Ballinamore, has been selected for the Irish schools team which will take part in an annual cross country meet in Bolton in England next week.

This is the young Glenfin lad’s first international call up and is certainly a reward for dedication over many months having targeted a spot on this national squad some three months ago.

Coached by Peader McGranaghan at Finn Valley AC, he has impressed through the age divisions winning numerous national titles.
