Donegal’s eleven point victory in Healy Park last Sunday was a welcome win after a barren period stretching back to 2018. Manager Micky McCann in his post-match interview said the team was itching to get back into action after a very dis-appointing opening game against Armagh – a game they started brightly but faded alarmingly in the last quarter. Armagh, though, are a formidable outfit as they proved this weekend with a comprehensive demolition of Monaghan, while Longford also have a 100% record with five points to spare against Louth. Results so far are:

Louth are Donegal’s next opponents but the Donegal have two weeks recovery before meeting winless the Wee County on Sunday February 16th. They have now moved into third place in Roinn 3A and will be looking for another win to keep on track fro promotion back to Roinn 2B.
