Kevin Cassidy: My Donegal managers – 2) Brian McEniff

GAELIC Life columnist Kevin Cassidy will spend the next number of weeks discussing the ups the downs, the ‘what ifs’ and the stories that still make him laugh regarding each of his Donegal managers.

In this week’s Gaelic Life, the Gaoth Dobhair man discusses his second manager Brian McEniff – and how close he, and Colm McFadden, came to being barred from representing their county.

“Brian got Stephen to pass the message onto me. Basically the bus was stopping in Cavan for food and if we didn’t make it down before the bus left we would never play for Donegal again.”
