THREE DONEGAL MEN lined out for Mountbellew Agricultural College in their All-Ireland Agricultural and Horticultural Colleges football final win this week.
Ciaran Gibbons from Glenswilly, James Gallagher of Gaeil Fhánada and Naomh Columba’s Steven Callaghan all featured in their 5-8 to 1-14 win over Kildalton Agricultural College from Kilkenny on Tuesday.
Mountbellew were 10 points up at half-time and although Kildalton mounted something of a second half comeback with five unanswered points at the start of the second half, it was a six-point win in the end for the side from Galway at Templetuohy, Co Tipperary.
