Donegan has represented her home country on an international stage many times, including at the 2018 European Young Masters, the Fairhaven Trophy and the 2019 Spirit International. She was a member of the 2018-19 Ireland Girls European Championship Team, as well as the Ireland Girls Home International Team. Donegan helped led the team to a first-place finish at the Lahinch Golf Club All-Ireland Senior Cup and a Silver Medalist finish at the 2019 Lahinch Golf Club European event.

Donegan’s individual accolades include titles in the Seapoint Scratch Cup, 2019 Carlow Scratch Cup, the 2019 Lahinch Vaughan Scratch Cup and the 2018 Munster Girls event. In addition, she was the runner-up at the 2019 Munster Woman Championship and she reached a World Amateur Golf Rating of 380 earlier this season.

Donegan joins an Indiana team that posted one of the best seasons in program history in 2018-19, highlighted by at 21st place finish at the National Championship. This fall, the Hoosiers have impressed, finishing in the top-10 in every event.
