Donegal were two points down and kicking into Hill 16 but three points without reply, including the 59th minute winner from sub O’Donnell, secured victory.

“I’m absolutely delighted for the lads because I think back in my playing days, I lost an All-Ireland semi-final here in 1990 against Meath and there’s nothing worse than losing a semi-final.
