Donal Murrin
Why I'm Participating

The name Murrin is synonymous with our club, embodying a family to whom we owe a tremendous debt of gratitude for their unwavering commitment to Naomh Ultan throughout the years!

We're delighted to have Donal representing his family in this fundraiser, especially considering his mother Marian, holds the esteemed position of joint President at CLG Naomh Ultan.

Together with her husband Stephen, they have been pillars of support for our club for well over three decades. Marian's dedication shines through her extensive service in various executive roles, notably as secretary and treasurer during pivotal periods in the club's history, particularly throughout the development phases of Páirc Naomh Ultan and the subsequent clubhouse in the 90s and early 2000s.

Marian and Stephen readily tackled any task that arose, whether it was selling tickets, managing bingo, attending meetings or even preparing sandwiches. Their unwavering commitment didn't go unnoticed, as evidenced by Marian's well-deserved nomination to the role of President alongside Jimmy Byrne in recent years.

Their sons have all been integral members of our club, representing us from underage to senior levels. Declan and Ronan achieved notable success at underage levels in the 90s before contributing to victories at adult level, including an Intermediate B Championship win in 2002. Ronan was part of the 2011 Junior B Championship winning side and Declan continued his success also, securing a Div 4 league and Junior A Championship double in 2015. Donal also boasts a successful track record, achieving a double in 2015 along side Declan and highly contributing to the Minor team's county league and Championship titles in 2008. Fond of their doubles these Murrins! 

The Murrin family's association with the club carries into present day, with Donal's wife April serving as our Children's Officer and their daughter Jenna playing in our Academy team.

Donal's active involvement extends beyond the field; you might even catch him running the roads around Loughmult, Calhame and Gilberstown in the early mornings. While he might be fit enough to run 100km, he'll likely opt for to cycle it. Hopefully, he'll hit the bike in the upcoming weeks to avoid a rather painful experience on May 5th!
