The Long Hall Podcast – America’s Irish Voice
Donal Gallagher managed Donegal Club for 3 decades leading them to 6 New York Senior Football counties.
Affectionately known as -- “The Veteran," Donal was also the man who brought Cork Football legend Larry Tompkins to New York in the 1980s during a golden era for Gaelic football in the Big Apple.
In a remarkable tour in 1987, the Donegal Club traveled to Ireland and beat Cork, Mayo and Laois before drawing with Donegal.
We interviewed Donal last year as part of Larry’s recently released autobiography.
Larry Tompkins move to New York ultimately led to him joining Castlehaven and Cork where he cemented his place among the GAA greats.
In essence, there was no Larry Tompkins story without New York and Donal Gallagher.
