Kilmacud Crokes star Paul Mannion

Six-time All-Ireland SFC winner Paul Mannion made a winning championship debut for Donegal Boston against Aidan McAnespies on Sunday.

The Kilmacud Crokes clubman helped the holders to a 1-14 to 0-12 victory over the Macs in their Boston SFC opener at Canton.

29-year-old Mannion, who opted out of Dessie Farrell's Dublin squad at the end of the 2020 season, has decided to spend the summer playing for Donegal Boston, the same club which his former county teammate Diarmuid Connolly lined out with in 2018.

Four-in-row chasing Donegal Boston have retained the services of Connolly's St Vincent's clubmate Shane Carthy and also include Kerry midfielder Darragh Lyne in their ranks this season.
