Manus Boyle is an Irish former Gaelic footballer from Killybegs. He was a member of Donegal's 1992 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship winning team and played for Donegal from 1986 to 1995. He played as a forward and was a free kick specialist. He started at right corner-forward in the 1992 All Ireland Final, scoring nine points in total, four from play as Donegal won by 0-18 to 0-14 against Dublin to claim their first ever All Ireland football title.

At club level he played for Na Cealla Beaga.[1] In 2010, at the age of 44, he made a return to the game as his club team came from nowhere to reach the final of that year's Donegal Senior Football Championship.[2]

The 44-year-old started training for a marathon, but the hard road was unforgiving and reignited a few old injuries. The sod of the club's field was more forgiving [...] Incredibly, he has featured off the bench in recent matches and he's likely to do the same tomorrow.
