Three Donegal players are named on Team of the Week


DONEGAL PRODUCED THEIR  best performance of the season on Saturday night to overcome Tyrone on a 0-12 to 0-6 scoreline at a soggy MacCumhaill Park.


Paddy McGrath had a fine game for Rory Gallagher’s team at corner-back, posting his first ever score in league or championship. The Ardara defender was joined on the selection this week by Ciaran Thompson of Naomh Conaill, who scored three from play, while Kilcar’s Ryan McHugh also scored twice and was excellent throughout.
