Report: Diarmuid Connolly To Join Boston Team

Diarmuid Connolly will play his football in Boston this summer.

According to The Inishowen Independent, Connolly is set to join the Donegal Boston team.

It was first reported, earlier this month, by the Irish Examiner's John Fogarty that playing in the US was a possibility for Connolly. Both Boston and New York were said to be possibilities at the time.

The Donegal Boston side is managed this season by Buncrana man Padraic McLaughlin.


Connolly will join other inter-county players, such as Carlow's Brendan Murphy, Corofin and Galway's Liam Silke and Donegal's Eoin McHugh, on the Donegal Boston side. Former Donegal player Michael Carroll is also on the team.

The 30-year-old Connolly made just one appearance for Dublin during the National League when he came off the bench back in February during the victory against Mayo in Castlebar. The line from both Dublin players and management since has been that five-time All-Ireland winner was either taking a rest or break from the sport.

It's said that Connolly made his decision following "weeks of negotiations with several clubs in the States" and that he is expected to join up with his new team in the coming week.
