The Allianz National League Roinn 2B relegation playoff throws-in in Longford at 12.30 on Saturday 9th of March in Glennon Brothers Pearse Park. It would be generous to describe Sunday past’s match in Letterkenny, which Donegal won by 5-18 to Warwickshire’s 0-17, as a dress rehearsal – it was more shadow boxing as both sides rested key players and tested the depth of their respective squads.

 

The stakes on Saturday are immeasurably higher as both squads face into much the most important game of the year so far. Warwickshire was also the opposition in June 2018 in Croke Park when Donegal clinched the Christy Ring Cup on a 2-19 to 0-18 score-line. A hat-trick of wins in a year is now required – be there and support CLG Dhún na nGall in what has the potential to be a humdinger of a game.
