Down through the years, there were some GAA players that just oozed class. Whenever they got on the ball, it was like viewing poetry in motion. Ciaran McDonald was certainly among that bunch.

The Mayo legend was an incredible performer. There have been few classier forwards in the history of the game, with a left foot capable of pulling off basically anything on the pitch.

McDonald last played at inter-county level back in 2007, although he has been involved in the Mayo backroom team in recent seasons. During that time we have been given a couple of hints that he still has some of that magic in his locker, something that has now been confirmed.

Ciaran McDonald Lights Up GAA Charity Match

The 47-year old took part in a charity match over the weekend, reuniting with his Crossmolina teammates from their club All-Ireland winning season of 2001.


Taking place in Connacht GAA's air dome, the former All-Star showed that he still had plenty left in the tank.

The game took place in aid of Crossmolina resident Kieran Cawley, who is hoping to raise money in order to help in his treatment for cancer. You can donate to the cause here.
