Donegal caught at the last moment

This may not be big news to most of our readers, but those of us with a lifelong passion for Donegal/the underdog will have been heartened by yesterday’s close run thing at Clones, when Armagh only just pulled the cat out of the fire. Despite a poor league season, Donegal manager Brian McEniff was confident going into the match that his side would give the highly favoured Armagh team more than a run for their money! And they did it with 14 men! Replay: next Saturday at Clones at 5.50pm!

You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here.
