Congratulations to Clubman Darach O’Connor on his competitive debut for Donegal today. However, it was disappointment for Donegal in their opening Dr McKenna Cup match against Tyrone in Letterkenny on Sunday. They delivered a good performance in awful conditions. Darach earned a penalty in the first half that the Tyrone keeper saved from Michael Murphy. The miss proved costly in the end as Tyrone were just that bit stronger and adapted best to conditions on the day. On a good note though there will be much better days ahead for this Donegal team and young Darach. Well done too to the Malin lads today.
