Make Home Venue Count – An Mhí idir Dún nan Gall Sunday July 14, 2.00 Ballybofey
The next step in CLG Dhún na nGall’s 2019 journey begins with the visit of Meath to Ballybofey next Sunday. With tough games coming against Kerry in Croke Park and Mayo in Castlebar it is vital Donegal win this, their only home game of the series, and start on the front foot. To make home venue count it is important the team have lots of support to give an extra lift when needed most – Meath are going to be hungry to maintain momentum from their win over Clare – particularly those periods when Meath look like establishing a foothold.
After the Royal County’s dis-appointing performance against Dublin in Croke Park they took a lot of flack for scoring just four points over the course of 70 minutes. They had sufficient opportunities, particularly in the first half, but their shooting was well off on the day. They came bouncing back against Clare in the qualifiers, scoring 2-16, and will be no pushovers this Sunday. It was widely acknowledged back in early February that Donegal were fortunate to win 1-12 to 0-14 when a Caolan McGonagle goal revived the home challenge at a juncture when it looked like Meath were pushing on for a win. After the first quarter in the League final the same team looked to be coasting to victory but Donegal patiently righted the ship to win by two points 1-17 to 1-15. Meath will be hoping for third time lucky next week but Donegal will be doing their best to retain their scoreboard dominance.
