Just check out the championship playing record of Michael Hegarty from Kilcar over  22 seasons

Michael Hegarty with the Dr. Maguire Cup

On Sunday last Michael Hegarty got to eventually get his hands on the top trophy in Donegal, winning the Donegal Senior title with Kilcar.
He has toiled for 22 seasons with his beloved Kilcar, through good times and bad, and has been ever present for the club. Sunday was his 85th club championship game over those 22 seasons, missing just three matches, and scoring 4-193.
He has endeared himself to the supporters of the parish, who showed their appreciation for the service he has given over those years, both in Ballybofey on Sunday and at the homecoming on Sunday night.
Below we reproduce the championship playing record, jersey No. and scores of Michael Hegarty, kindly supplied by Charlie O'Donnell. No. 8 seemed to be his favourite number but he has played in a variety of places.
