Paul McGinley to be given the Freedom of Donegal

Paul McGinley

Golfer Paul McGinley is to be given the Freedom of Donegal.

The proposal was made by Cllr Ciaran Brogan, who said Paul Mc Ginley has made a massive contribution to Donegal's status as a golfing destination, especially with the Irish Open in Ballyliffin and more recently, with the Legends Tour at the Rosapenna Hotel and Golf Resort.

Cathaoirleach Cllr Jack Murray, a distant cousin of the golfer, said Paul McGinley may speak with a Dublin accent, but he is a Donegal man at heart.
