DONEGAL GAA SQUAD READY TO JET OFF ON TEAM HOLIDAY TO DUBAI

first_imgThe Donegal squad pictured after a training session during their team holiday in 2012.Rory Gallagher will take his Donegal side away to Dubai for their team holiday later this week, but the trip is no junket as the players have packed their training gear for the trip away. Donegal will jet out to Dubai for a week this Friday, and while the trip will be predominantly used as a relaxing week away for the management and staff, the players have been told to bring their gear and have training sessions planned for the week ahead.Donegal were defeated by Dublin in a entertaining match at Croke Park on Saturday night. Tempers frayed between both sides, and clearly there is no love lost between either set of players as was evidenced by the bruising exchanges on show under the lights at Croker.The Allianz National League now shuts down for three weeks, so it’s the perfect opportunity for Donegal to head off on their team holiday.They would’ve jetted off at the end of 2014, but goalkeeper Paul Durcan was getting married so the squad decided to hold back and wait until now.With the season up and running the trip could be seen as an unwanted distraction, but Rory Gallagher and his staff will use the trip properly to ensure the team is well prepared for their next league clash with Cork. Former Donegal manager Jim McGuinness will be unable to attend the holiday because of his commitments with Celtic FC.Donegal enjoyed a wonderful season in 2014, they won the Ulster SFC title for a third time in four years, and came agonisingly close to winning their second All-Ireland title in just three years.They gave Donegal supporters plenty of wonderful days last summer and they deserve their break in sunny Dubai.We hope they all enjoy their break and that Rory Gallagher doesn’t make them do too many beach runs in that searing heat in Dubai. DONEGAL GAA SQUAD READY TO JET OFF ON TEAM HOLIDAY TO DUBAI was last modified: February 10th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalDubaiGAAnewsRory GallagherSportTeam Holidaylast_img read more
