The permutations have been simplified: Donegal and Tyrone will joust in Ballybofey on the August Bank Holiday weekend with a place in an All-Ireland semi-final up for grabs.
Dublin’s 1-14 to 0-14 win over Tyrone in Healy Park tonight – when James McCarthy’s second-half goal made the difference – means it will be winner takes all when the derby rivals clash in a fortnight’s time.
The full house signs will be posted around Sean Mac Cumhaill Park for sure as the old foes meet in one of their biggest ever battles.
The winner will go forward to an All-Ireland semi-final – the stakes have rarely been as high for these two.
Donegal overcame Roscommon by seven points this evening meaning that – owing to Tyrone’s 18-point hammering of the Roses in Croke Park last weekend – a draw will suffice for Tyrone.
Ballybofey hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for the Red Hands in recent times and Donegal are 21 League and Championship games unbeaten by the Finn.
It’s one not to be missed!Tags:
