Replying To HB245:  "What ever happened to young Eoghan McGettigan who was corner forward for Naomh Conaill a couple years ago? Unbelievable that they've been able to win championships without him. Such a panel they have."
I belive he's another one of the Donegal players to have had terrible luck with injuries over the years.

A couple of things, the Kavanagh rumour gained further momentum over the weekend. St eunans rightly favourites this weekend, set up for a kilcar ambush methinks, if mcbrearty continues to shoot the lights on and kilcar get big games from the McHugh's and McGinley I think they could shade it.

Yeah McGettigan is a lively wee player but suffered a bad injury. I'm not sure when he's likely to be back.

I remember he was excellent against Clontibret in the Ulster semi final (2019?)...

Kilcar would also love a chance to take on NC in another county final, no love lost there I'd say after the 2020 fiasco.
I don't see why anyone thinks most of the county would be shouting for Glen next Saturday,
I think most people would rather see them beat after the reported sledging that went on from them in the semi final.
Glen are a great club with a big tradition, seeing Killybegs Kilcar and Ardara playing senior is galling for them too no doubt.

Yes the Intermediate and Senior finals are both being streamed

Might want to double check they're available abroad though. Sometimes those types of streams are blocked internationally when you're using a non-Irish IP address. You could always get a VPN if you're really stuck though and desperately want to watch the games.

Replying To Lockjaw:  "Looking forward to the Intermediate final. Both teams have tradition and would see themselves as senior clubs. I think they'll both try to play football & win it as opposed to just trying not to be beaten if that makes sense, and the neutrals should get to see a good game as a result.

Kilcar & Eunans should also be a great game. Paddy McBrearty has been in irresisitible form. It will be interesting to see who picks him up. Naomh Conaill are in a lovely position. They'll be underdogs no matter which team they face, they will have had an extra week's recovery time & will have a chance to get a good look at both potential opponents ahead of the final."
Hi Lockjaw: Dungloe seem very confident about Intermediate final saying they have Naomh Columba's number this past few years. Buntings are even up.

They'll maybe feel that they left it after them last year. In the first game against CCF they were well in control but contrived to lose their lead and eventually suffered defeat in the replay. I think it will be tight but NC have that wee bit of star quality in Aaron Doherty which might just see them edge it. But then again, if Dungloe were to prevail it would be no great surprise either.

Good man Lockjaw, fixtures are clear there unlike the mess on the Donegal GAA fixtures and results website.
not sure how good the streaming is,I never used it before, and the broadband isn't great where I live.

I used it for the Gweedore Aodh Ruadh match and it wasn't bad. I have fibre broadband though - might be different in locations where Internet and wifi are patchy.

Who in Dungloe is saying that? Haven't heard anyone in the town say that, everyone thinks it will be close. Dungloe will be cautiously optimistic after losing the final replay last year. It's good to see bunting up in the town and flags around, the club has had a difficult few years transitioning to a new team, going from Senior to intermediate. Nothing wrong with excitement.

Well the great man Neil McGee has retired from county duty. What an unbelievable servant he has been to Donegal football. 5 Ulster's, 1 All Ireland, 3 All Stars, Railway Cup, International Rules and I think there might even be a Sigerson in there too. Not to mention the 3 Donegal SFC's & Ulster win in 2018.

There's many a full forward will sleep a bit easier tonight!

All the very best & thanks for the great memories.

Good luck to Neil McGee on retirement. Some commitment and list of achievements, one of our greats. I always recall his interview after 2012 in documentary where there discussing the training and saying how couldn't sleep from being that sore from training- the work put in cannot imagine it. One of the things I admire most was in last few years it would have been easy to call it a day after serious injury v Tyrone but he came back to try to get back on team.

Best of luck to Neil McGee on his intercounty retirement and thanks for all the great days he gave us as I said on the other thread, an absolute legend of a man.

Hi Donegal_abroad: it was the ticket sellers that were saying it to me.

nice tribute from Brian McEniff for Neil McGee in the Irish News today..

They've stuck this paragraph in at the end saying Kavanagh will be the new manager...
IT is understood that Donegal are set to announce Rory Kavanagh as manager of their senior football team. Kavanagh, an All-Ireland winner in 2012, is currently manager of his native St Eunan's. The Letterkenny outfit face Kilcar on Saturday in the senior championship semi-finals this weekend and it is understood that Kavanagh will be confirmed as the successor to Declan Bonner when their campaign comes to an end.
