Following a very promising start to their Allianz Hurling League campaign with victories over London and Sligo, Donegal’s ambitions of a 2B league final have taken a hit with their loss to an still unbeaten Meath side Meath in Navan in Round 3 and a hefty defeat to Wicklow in O’Donnell Park last weekend. There is still a path to the final and potential promotion to Division 2A if they can defeat Tyrone in Letterkenny this Sunday and secure a second v third semi-final, a re-match with Wicklow who cannot overtake Meath having lost their head-to-head encounter. Currently, both Tyrone and Donegal sit on four league points and both sides will be striving to keep their hopes of further progress alive with a win this weekend.
Throw-in against Tyrone on Sunday is 1 pm and Brian Keon will officiate. No cash will be taken at the gate and advance purchase of tickets is required. Tickets are priced at €10 for adults and €8 for students and OAPs and can be purchased at the link below:
Juveniles under 16 are free but must be accompanied by an adult.
The other games in Roinn 2B see Meath travel to London and Sligo welcome Wicklow to the North West.
