It’s a massive, massive hole.“We’re out looking for the Donegal public to support us again. That’s through no fault of the board or the team – it’s through planning that is causing huge problems, not just for Finn Harps. “It’s a situation that has got to be dealt with. It’s very unfair on volunteers who have to go out and gather money to cover something that is generating by no opportunity to have income.”Harps have extended an invite to past managers and ex-players for this week’s fixture against Pat’s as part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the club’s entry into the League of Ireland.Listen to the full interview below …Listen: Finn Harps secretary appeals for action on ‘unfair’ scheduling was last modified: August 28th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:2019 League of Ireland Premier Divisionfinn harpsJohn CampbellOllie Horganlast_img
