Michael Murphy put in a man of the match performance yesterday as Donegal opened their Super 8’s campaign with a win over Meath.
The Glenswilly clubman put in a fine personal showing – as did Ryan McHugh – as Donegal overcame the Royal County on a 2-19 to 1-13 scoreline and the world of Twitter was loving it!
They should invent a new All Star Position. The Michael Murphy position. — ToobanLad (@toobanlad) July 15, 2019
Once again the ability of Michael Murphy and Ryan McHugh to control the temperature of a Donegal game is evident. Always just know when to stick or twist. — Colm Keys (@KeysColm) July 14, 2019
It’s gotten to the stage where there’s no words left to describe how good Michael Murphy is. We may just sit back and count ourselves lucky we get to watch him at his peak 🐐 — Kane Barrett (@kaneyb_14) July 14, 2019
Fair play to Meath, they are definitely a team on the up. But when the going got tough, Donegal got going. Michael Murphy is a beast. Donegal a serious threat to Dublin this year. @SkySportsGAA #Super8s — Ryan (@ryanforr90) July 14, 2019

Is their anything more guaranteed in life than Michael Murphy soloing down the left hand side, checking back and swinging over with his right? #Super8s #Donegal — Gary Wilson (@G_Wils89) July 14, 2019

Super game in Ballybofey…. needless to say the final result wasnt a true reflection of game…Kickouts was the key difference between the sides…Murphy and McBrearty and McHugh immense for Donegal when game in the melting pot — Dick Clerkin (@dickclerkin8) July 14, 2019
This Donegal Meath game showing how important kick outs are in today’s game. Patton’s kicks are lethal. Murphy and McHugh are still absolute different class #GAA — Shaun Coyle (@shaun_coyle) July 14, 2019
