You'll have to wait till Monday afternoon to know that I would say. Not very fair on fans if there thinking of staying overnight. Going by the prices on offer I'll be making it a one day trip. Hopefully bigger weekend s ahead.

The draw will be on Monday morning so I'd say we won't know til Monday afternoon which day it'll be fixed for.

Anyone's guess. The only certainty there is is if Louth beat Cork and we draw them it will be on the a Sunday to give them a full weeks break.

And then people will slag off if Croke Park is only half full for quarter finals.

In comparison if we'd won Ulster in the past, we'd know in 3 weeks we would have been playing in quarter final.

Potentially six days notice to see who we are playing, what day and time for thrown in is a big hindrance to planning.

Rankings are bull, conclusion of championship will show one winner and the rest

It's fantastic times to be from Donegal, irrespective of the remainder of the championship goes, after the last 4 years of underperforming, Jim has restored pride in the Jersey and in the county in general. I am extremely grateful for that. Irrespective of who we face in croke Park I know we won't be found wanting for guts and effort and that's the most important thing, I believe we will make the semi's, and who knows where after that!

Prices are higher than usual due to Taylor Swift playing the Aviva and it's also gay pride weekend. Thought I'd see you in croker wearing a set of arse-less leather chaps and a pink stetson.

You'll probably be at Taylor Swift anyway regardless if it coincides with the Donegal match, we all know you gweedore people like there big stars. Enjoy it lad no doubt you'll have company with a few of the other posters on here. Peilodor and tirconnel could even get to the game if times work out for them., keep your armchairs at home but. Ha

Totally agree I saw James O'Donoghue had it 1.Kerry 2. Dublin 3. Derry 4.Galway 5.Donegal.
Now how in hell can a Team that has been beaten by Donegal, Galway and by Armagh be number 3?

Rare species, on some count..

How on earth would you know what constitutes a real supporter anyway? It's an anonymous forum for crying out loud.

It's much easier not to give it airtime - I can't for the life of me understand how this waffler always gets a reaction.

Great results last weekend and you'd have to be very happy anytime you put up a score like that especially when there was pressure to do so. Like everyone I'm really excited to see what might come in Croke Park. Looks like it'll be another tricky draw with Galway and Mayo favoured to come through this weekend. However I wouldn't be surprised if one or two games go against the expected script. Whatever happens you know Jim will have the team well prepared and getting the extra week is massive. At least we can all sit back this weekend and weigh up what might come down the line next weekend. I must mention Ciaran Moore again who has been quite some find. His adaptability is incredible and surely he must be in the talk for young player of the year. He certainly will be if we can navigate a way to the final 4 at least. At this stage I don't really fear anyone and just hope we're lucky with injuries. I'd probably have preferred Galway to get a result against Armagh as they're a very good outfit with everyone fit. Anyways let's see what happens.

You're right, hands up I shouldn't be reacting.

Louth winning is great news for us. We can now draw anyone but odds slightly tipped in our favour that we may draw Louth.

Armagh cannot get Derry or Galway so they've best route
Dublin and Kerry cannot draw Louth
Dublin also cannot draw Rossies so they will play either Derry or Galway. Either will be plum tie of the round.

Ideal draw
Armagh v Roscommon
Dublin v Derry
Kerry v Galway
Donegal v Louth

Worst draw imo

Armagh v Louth
Kerry v Roscommon
(If these two ties are drawn out of hat, it means we have Derry or Galway). I think I fear Derry more right now but either will be tough. Roll on tomorrow morning.
