Donegal so desperate for All-Ireland success they've made a 10-foot tall Sam Maguire

This is quite impressive.

THEY HAVE REALLY missed the Sam Maguire ever since it left Donegal last year. So much so, Anthony Barrett has built a 10-foot tall, 12-foot wide version made from stone.

Barrett, who owns a farm in Newtowncunningham in Co. Donegal, told the BBC the creation took three months to complete.

“It’s my wee treat because of my love of football,” he said.

However, whisper it around the hills of Donegal, but Barrett is a Tyrone man and his daughter plays for the Tyrone minors so the 56-year old will probably be hoping the real trophy ends up with the Red Hands rather than Jim McGuinness’ men.
