As the Donegal Senior Football Team looks ahead to an Ulster Final clash with Derry on July 17th, Jim Mc Guinness is urging the County Board to consider postponing the First Round Second legs of the County Championship which is scheduled to take place this coming weekend. The Donegal manager says there is a very real chance for the county to win the Ulster Championship, but he’s fearful that going ahead with important club matches this weekend may compromise the county team’s preparations.
In Clones yesterday a last gasp goal from Dermot Molloy sealed Donegal's passage to the Ulster final. Tyrone were comfortably in the lead throughout the game but everything changed when Colm McFadden rattled home Donegal’s first goal on 56 minutes. A Martin Penrose point in the first minute of injury-time leveled the match for Tyrone. At that stage a replay looked to be on the cards but an incredible finish was to follow as Martin Swift was dispossessed in his own defence and sub Molloy fired into the net to send Donegal through to their first Ulster final since 2006.
This morning Jim Mc Guinness spoke to Charlie Collins and the Donegal manager says their delighted to be looking into an Ulster final.
