LIAM Bradley, the Malin manager, hailed his side after recording a famous win over Gaoth Dobhair at Magheragallon.
A brace of goals from Dan McDaid and a killer third by Brendan McLaughlin, along with a top-class performance by Declan Waslh, earned Malin a 3-08 to 1-11 win.
It means that Malin are into the quarter-finals and Bradley, the former Antrim manager, is now eyeing up a clash with St Michael’s.
“We’re in the quarter-finals, we’re in the hat. There’s nothing won yet, but no-one will want to play us,” he told Donegal Sport Hub.
“We knew coming down here that it was a winner-takes-all game. Getting to the quarter-finals was our aim. I thought we played very well.”
Nine points from Odhrán MacNiallais kept Gaoth Dobhair in check and Bradley was quick to praise the contribution of the Donegal star.
He said: “He nearly single-handedly took Gaoth Dobhair over the line. He was a joy to watch. I had my best man-marker on him in Charlie Byrne. Charlie is no slouch, but I think even he’d admit that he was second best today”
Bradley praised the influential Walsh, who was at the heartbeat of Malin in a display that ranks among their finest hours.
