The draw for Round 4 of the championship took  place earlier tonight. Six of the top seven teams drew each other. However, with all six clubs already guaranteed quarterfinal places they are essentially playing for the advantage of home venue.  Thus, there are also three ties matching relegation candidates. Placings in the top eight and which teams end up in the relegation play-offs will be decided by points difference so all eight ties will be hotly contested to the final whistle.

 

All games will be played on Sunday August 23rd at 3.00 pm. The game in O’Donnell Park between Naomh Adhamhnáin and Naomh Micheál will be streamed live on the Donegal Facebook page.
