O’Donoghue honoured with Council reception

Representing Team Ireland at last year’s Olympic Games in Rio, O’Donoghue is a vastly experienced campaigner with 123 senior inter-national caps and 64 goals.

Nominated for the ‘FIH Rising Star’ Award in 2015, O’Donoghue twice helped KHC Dragons to the Belgium National title during which period he won a European bronze.

He played a major part in Ireland winning gold at World League 2 in San Diego, picking up the ‘Player of the Tournament’ Award there.

He captained Leinster to the Under 21 Inter-provincial title in 2012 and 2013 and also skippered Ireland’s Under 21 European Champions.

He is back playing with Glenanne, a club with whom he won the Irish Senior and Neville Cups and played in the EHL.
