Young footballer of the year Ryan McHugh is hoping that older brother Mark will make a return to the Donegal camp for the 2015 season.  Speaking in the Irish News McHugh said “If he's willing to commit then Rory (Gallagher) will definitely give him his chance, he's not a bad player”.

Currently keeping fit playing soccer for St Catherine’s FC in the Donegal League, Ryan is itching to get back into the thick of the action on the GAA field. The Dr McKenna Cup is just around the corner and the younger of the two McHugh brothers is already looking forward to 2015 stating; “Dad always tells me it's a short career so you have to enjoy it. I cannot wait to get back playing and all the other boys will be the exact same. I love playing for my county, putting on that Donegal jersey and going out there. I'll enjoy the next few weeks but then it's back to business.”

Here’s hoping there will be two McHugh’s in Donegal colours next season.
