According to the Donegal Democrat, Mark Mc Hugh an All-Star in 2012 , is believed to be one of those who has stepped away from the county set up.
The Kilcar man who came on as a 2nd half substitute in Sunday’s league final defeat to Monaghan did not attend training on Tuesday night and since then rumours have been rife that he has decided to move on.
The other two players are believed to be Noamh Colmcille’s Thomas Mc Kinley and Glenswilly’s Gary Mc Fadden. Both were also panel members during Donegal’s All Ireland winning year in 2012.
It could be four players who have gone, with Antoin McFadden also believed to have left in recent weeks.
The reasons for three players to leave the squad is unknown but the Donegal Democrat added that Manager Jim Mc Guinness could not be contacted to confirm or deny the departures.
