DONEGAL’S TWO-TIME Allstar winning goalkeeper Paul Durcan is set to join Dublin senior football club Ballyboden St-Enda’s.

Donegal News GAA writer Chris McNulty has reported today that Durcan is set to make the move to the club.

30 year-old Durcan is in line to move from his native Four Masters to Ballyboden. He is currently working and living in Dublin.

Durcan is a cousin of current Ballyboden defender Robert McDaid, a member of the Dublin U21 team that won the All-Ireland final last year, and part of the UCD squad that contested this year’s Sigerson Cup semi-final.

The potential availability of Durcan is a huge boost for Ballyboden St-Enda’s. Durcan won Allstars in 2012 and 2014 while he was between the posts when Donegal won the 2012 All-Ireland title.

Ballyboden St-Enda’s were defeated at the semi-final stage by eventual champions St Vincent’s by 1-17 to 1-10 in last year’s Dublin county championship. They last claimed the Dublin senior crown in 2009.

Dublin senior footballer Michael Darragh MacAuley is their best-known player while Dublin senior hurler Conal Keaney is also part of their ranks.
