Hats off to Done­galS­ whose ex­haus­tive re­search on the top scor­ers in the his­tory of the Done­gal se­nior foot­ball team was pub­lished this week.

Top of the pile is Michael Mur­phy (right), who has scored 28-493 in 142 se­nior ap­pear­ances since be­ing drafted in as a 17-year-old in 2007.

The Glenswilly man, who has been Done­gal cap­tain for the last eight years, is 64 points clear of sec­ond-placed Colm McFad­den, who played 31 more games. The rest of the list reads like a who’s who of the great Done­gal for­wards, all of whom won Celtic crosses: Martin McHugh, Manus Boyle, Adrian Sweeney, Bren­dan Deven­ney, Tony Boyle, Pa­trick McBrearty, De­clan Bon­ner.
