Kevin Cassidy says Gaoth Dobhair will be meeting “a fantastic team” in the form of Corofin in the All-Ireland club SFC semi-finals next February.

Cassidy and his club mates landed a first Ulster club SFC crown for Donegal on Sunday by edging out Scotstown on a 0-13 to 0-12 score-line in Omagh after extra time and, speaking to the Irish Daily Star, the former All Star knows a mammoth task awaits them come the 16th of February.

“Definitely, they’re All-Ireland champions. We trained last Sunday morning and then the boys went home and watched them,” Cassidy stated.

“A fantastic team, they wouldn’t be All-Ireland champions if they weren’t. That’s the challenge, that’s where you want to be and if you were to tell us back last January that we’d be one step away from lining out on Paddy’s Day, we’d have taken the hand off you.

“It’s been a long year, game after game, training after training, video after video. It takes a lot out of you. I think we’re all looking forward to a wee bit of a break this week and next week. I’ve never had a Christmas like it. It’ll be nice preparing for another one.”
