Donegal captain Michael Murphy can't wait to get started under newly appointed manager Declan Bonner.
Appearing as an analyst on eirSport's coverage of this evening's Donegal SFC semi-final clash between Kilcar and St Michael's, Murphy gave his reaction to Bonner's ratification as Tir Chonaill senior football boss.
"Yeah, huge news," he said. "After the All-Ireland and after watching it last weekend the first thing, as an inter-county footballer, you turn to the new season.
"To get a new manager and for him formulating his backroom team, we'll be mad as a group of players to get back in.
"Congratulations to Declan and we'll be looking forward to getting back down to business soon."
