MICK Deegan is looking forward to getting back on the bus. In January he became the manager of Donaghmore Ashbourne.

"Everybody is missing their sport at the moment, be that Gaelic football, soccer, rugby, whatever," laments Mick. "Sport is so beneficial. It keeps us all sane."

His son, Michael, is a highly talented footballer who has impressed in the Dublin jersey. Young Michael plays with Donaghmore Ashbourne. "They have a great set-up there. Top-class facilities," says Mick.
