WESTMEATH GAA MOURN THE PASSING OF HURLER DONAL DEVINE
Tributes have been pouring in all day from the GAA community following the passing of Westmeath hurler Donal Devine.
Donal, 40, took ill after a training session last night with his beloved club Castlepollard and passed away a short time later.
Donal ‘Duck’ Devine won four senior county titles with the club and has played at inter-county level for Westmeath. His brother Alfie is an inter-county referee while his nephew Alan currently plays for Westmeath.
The Westmeath GAA Facebook said of Donal earlier today “A true Castlepollard Gael, Donal gave a lifetime of service to the club and his passing has been a massive shock to his family, friends and the wider GAA community.”
