Green light for County Final as Noamh Conaill’s appeal to Ulster fails

Gary Mc DaidThe Donegal Senior Football Championship Final will go ahead as planned on Sunday.

Noamh Conaill's appeal to the Ulster Council which was lodged on Thursday night has failed meaning St Eunan's and Glenswilly will meet in Ballybofey tomorrow for the Dr Maguire Cup.

The provincial body ruled the appeal out of order because of incorrect paperwork.

The case was taken to Ulster by the Glenties club after the CCC in the county throw out their objection to their defeat to the Glenswilly last Sunday at the O'Donnell Park.

Noamh Conaill will release a statement later today.

Meanwhile Ciaran Bonner, the player who was at the centre of Noamh Conaill objection has had his black card successfully appealed by the Donegal Hearings Committee, Glenswilly however will be without captain Caolan Kelly for the final, the club have been told his red card stands.

Glenswilly Manager Gary Mc Daid will be in the stands for the big decider after his appeal to a one match ban from the win over Termon in the quarter final also failed.
