A memorable competitors awaits at Páirc Éimeád in Castlefinn tonight as mates from house and away collect to honour the reminiscence of Marsha Mc Connell.

Marsha, whose legacy intertwines with each Clan na Gael in Sydney and Robert Emmets, sadly handed in July 2020 alongside along with her unborn daughter Bella.

Marsha’s life and contributions to native sports activities and neighborhood stay deeply cherished.

This Friday night she will likely be honoured in a memorial match as Clan na Gael alumni tackle Robert Emmets from 6.30pm to 10pm, culminating in a night of music, dance, and shared reminiscences at McBride’s Bar. All proceeds from this particular occasion will likely be donated to charity.

Marsha McConnell was not solely a pioneering power in women soccer in Donegal but in addition a beloved spouse, mom, daughter, sister and good friend whose inspiration reached past the pitch. The passing of Marsha and child Bella left a void within the hearts of many, together with her husband Rory, son Noah, and the broader neighborhood.

Marsha was a key participant within the formation of the primary Robert Emmets senior women staff and was rewarded with a call-up to the Donegal women in 2008.

In 2009, Marsha went travelling to New Zealand and ultimately took residence in Australia the place she acquired again to enjoying soccer for Clan Na Gael. Her return house was marked by Emmets women successful their first title within the junior B championship in 2015. 

She donned each the Clan na Gael and Robert Emmets jerseys with equal delight, and a heartfelt night time awaits remembering a girl who was the life and soul of the groups she performed in.
