Donegal manager Jim McGuinness has followed in the footsteps of two Popes, Queen Elizabeth and many other world leaders with his thank you card to Donegal’s favourite mother, Julia O’Donnell.

Julia is well known in her own right as a knitter to the very best in the world and last Monday on her 94th. birthday she received a “Thank you” card from the affable McGuinness thanking her for the gloves she had knitted but also for her continued support of the Donegal team.

Julia’s grand daughter Tricia Doogan said “This card has really made Granny’s day - it is just the tonic she needed after her short stay in hospital. It now takes the pride of place on the mantlepiece in between the letters from Pope Benedict and Pope Francis.

“She has the rosary beads out now praying for a positive result on Sunday!”
