Media,politicians & persuasive groups blamed for distracting Donegal team

The Donegal County Board says it has yet to decide on where any homecoming after the All-Ireland Final would take place.

It follows reports that the Letterkenny Chamber had expressed its desire for the homecoming to be held in Letterkenny.

In a statement the Donegal County Board said the County Executive in conjunction with senior team management and players, will decide on the issue of a homecoming.

Adding: Talks of a homecoming at this point are entirely premature and the focus should be on match preparation rather than events after the final.

The County Board says that media reports today claiming that a huge row has broken out among Donegal GAA fans are false.

They say the story has been generated by certain media outlets in conjunction with persuasive groups and some elected representatives.

The statement concludes that this is most unhelpful as the team prepares for its second ever All Ireland final.
