Pippa O’Connor will be holding the reins at Naomh Bríd in Ballinta after the model was announced as the club’s manager for the RTE show ‘Celebrity Bainisteoir’ on Sunday.
The 28-year-old arrived at Pairc Naomh Bríd to the surprise of fans. Naomh Brid are the first ever Donegal side to appear on the show. O’Connor’s husband, presenter Brian Ormond, revealed he is managing St Mary’s of Rochfortbridge, Co Westmeath.
“I am no stranger to Donegal but this is my first time in Ballintra” she said. “Both Brian and I are frequent visitors to Donegal and are great friends with Mickey Joe Harte. As far as I am concerned I think I have got home advantage already. I hope the lads here aren’t expecting an easy run. I’m a bit like Jim McGuinness, I intend going the whole way”
