Donegal Hurlers look forward to Nickey Rackard final

By Sinéad Breen Donegal PRO Sun 15th Nov

Pity about the poor scheduling with three games starting within 30 minutes of each other but nevertheless it was a very good weekend for Donegal GAA.

First out of the blocks were the Ladies at 1.00 in Athlone where they convincingly beat Waterford on a 2-13 to 0-9 scoreline although there championship ended there that unfortunate freak goal against Dublin haunting their campaign. – Geraldine McLaughlin and Karen Guthrie were the goalscorers yesterday. The marquee game of the day for Donegal, the Ulster SFC semi-final, threw in at 1.15 with a characterful performance from the footballers, particularly in the second quarter and capped by a brilliant Peadar Mogan goal, powering them past Armagh to the Ulster final next Sunday.

The Nickry Rackard semi-final between Tyrone and Donegal threw-in at 1.30. Tight throughout the first half the Red Hand County were first to goal but Richie Ryan pulled one back for Donegal who trailed by a point at the half-time break. Donegal took control in the second half with two quick-fire Gerard Gilmore goals putting daylight between the sides as the home side cruised to a 10 point win.



Donegal’s Ronan McDermott.


Dates and times for the two finals will be confirmed tomorrow.
