The ten-month-old tot’s father Seamus will be shouting loudly for Donegal but his mum Catriona, a Dublin native, is firmly behind the Boys in Blue.
Proud Moville man, and Daniel Doherty’s bakery employee, Seamus has been born and raised in Inishowen, while Catriona, who is a teacher in Letterkenny, moved to the seaside town of Moville from the capital after meeting and marrying the love of her life, Seamus.
The family will be watching the game together at home this weekend but as for which side Eli will be shouting for on Sunday afternoon – that remains as unknown as the outcome of the game itself!
Eli has to thank his uncle James Tracey for presenting him with the unique Donegal/Dublin shirt. James had the one-off shirt made for the Moville toddler especially by O’Neill’s.
