Comhgairdeas to Darrach O’Connor who came off the bench and played for the last quarter in today’s
Division 2 final in Croke Park. Darrach played well during his time on
the pitch but unfortunately it was a poor result for Donegal.
We know the team is capable of much better football than that displayed today
and their minds will now be fully focussed on the challenge of Derry in the Championship opener in a few weeks.
