Donegal’s Super 8s series got off to the best possible start with an 9 point win over Meath at MacCumhaill Park on Sunday.

2-19 v 1-13 was the final score in Ballybofey but it didn’t all go Donegal’s way however as they trailed by a point with 19 minutes played in the second half. Donegal’s final quarter performance won them the game and it is a performance that will stand to them going forward.

Patrick McBrearty marked his 100th Senior Appearance for Donegal by scoring 1-06, while Oisin Gallen scored Donegal’s other goal.

The victory today will be of great importance if the group comes down to score difference.

Next up for Donegal will be Kerry at GAA Headquarters.
