Kieran had an infectious enthusiasm
KIERAN will be fondly remembered by supporters, management and players. He revolutionised our fortunes against Longford in 2006. Kieran missed the replay against Cork and was back for the Longford game. In the four games before Longford we scored no goal and in the next four games we scored 11 goals!
We scored four goals against Longford and Kieran was involved in all four, such was his influence. Kieran provided us with a new focus.
He had a brilliant combination of size, strength, agility and great hands. His basketball knowledge and skill played a huge part in his game.
Kieran had an infectious enthusiasm and proved a hard man for any defence. His temperament was ideal and he was a real team player.
Bomber Liston was a central feature of Mick O’Dwyer’s great team and I would say that Kieran Donnaghy is the same category as the Bomber and he undoubtedly was the ‘Bomber’ of our team.
I really enjoyed working with Kieran and I wish Kieran and his family all the best for the future.
