THE DONEGAL team may not reach Letterkenny until after midnight, such has been the response in towns and villages across Co Donegal today.

They were originally due to arrive in Letterkenny around 8pm, but have been delayed as thousands have turned out in other towns and villages today.

Jim McGuinness and the players have gone out of their way to accommodate as many fans as possible, hence the delay in the journey.

Ryan Bradley tweeted: “What a feeling touring the county with the Cup. Some buzz about.”

It’s understood the team may go to Glenswilly, after they leave Ballybofey, before going to Letterkenny.

But the entourage hasn’t, as yet, reached Ardara (9pm).

Fans can leave updates on this story here please to help families and fans further up the route to take decisions on whether to wait on or go home and plan for another day.

Thanks a lot.
