Being chosen as captain, Macdonald was presented with the Donald Campbell memorial kilt pin by Michael Campbell.

Macdonald said it was a proud moment in his shinty career.

“It’s a tremendous honour to be selected in the squad of 20, and even more so to be chosen as captain.

“It will be a stern test over in Ireland, of that we are in no doubt.

“It is an extremely tough place to go but I am confident in the group of boys we have here.

“To be presented with the Donald Campbell Memorial kilt pin is an honour that will stay with me for many years.”
