Wednesday's website launch was one of the fruits of his forward thinking, progressiveness and recognition the league had to keep
up with the times.
FAI grassroots manager, Liam McGroarty congratulated the local organisation on becoming the first league in the country to get an official website designed by the Football Association of Ireland (FAI).
"This League is really well run and progressive and one that is willing to grab good opportunities. It is now the first League to get a website designed by the FAI," said Fanad-born Mr. McGroarty.
The launch gathering in the Inishowen Gateway Hotel, was told the new website would be a great way for the league's 18 clubs to keep up to date with news, results and fixtures.
PRO and Quigley's Point Swifts committee member, Terence Hegarty, had earlier revealed that more than 20 players from throughout the peninsula will have emigrated to Australia by the end of the season.

He said the website would be an ideal forum for them to keep up-to-date with league events during their time away.
“There is a huge Inishowen contingent out in Sydney now. By the time the season is over I expect that there will be well over twenty players from various teams in the Inishowen League gone,” he said.
