The death has occurred of Seamus BONNER of Blanchardstown, Dublin former County Leitrim Senior Football Team Manager.  

Seamus had an illustrious playing career with Donegal spanning two decades and 129 games in the 1970s and ‘€’80s.  He was a member of the Civil Service club in Dublin, and was also one of Brian McEniff’€’s lieutenants in the early 1990s and a member of the 1992 backroom team.  A three time Ulster Senior Championship winner and along with Brian McEniff, holds the distinction of being involved in Donegal’€’s first five Ulster championship wins, three as a player and two as a mentor. Seamus managed the Leitrim Senior Footballers in the 96/97 season and his selectors were Dan Meehan and Noel Crossan and team advisor was Dr Pat O Neill.

Coiste Chontae Liatroma take this opportunity to sympathy with the Bonner family, our thoughts and prayers are with them at this difficult time.
