KEVIN CAMPBELL says Setanta will be going into the 2019 Donegal SHC final with ‘fire in the belly’.
Setanta, who lost last year’s final to Burt, overcame Buncrana 4-19 to 1-12 in yesterday evening’s semi-final.
Setanta were stung hard by losing to Burt in 2018 and have come back with a real edge.
“The precedent has to set for the young boys coming through,” Campbell said.
“When you’re a senior hurler with Setanta, you’re expected to reach and maintain certain standards. There is a lot of hurt there from last year and it’s one that we left behind us.”
Campbell hit nine points in the semi-final, while Davin Flynn and Mark Devine each scored two goals.
Campbell said: “We have a lot of things to work on. Would that performance be good enough to win a county final? You’d have to say no.
“Fair dues to Buncrana, they came at us in the second half, but they probably had a bit too much to do.”
