Donegal won their first TG4 Ulster senior crown in 2015 – and now they’re aiming to make it three in four seasons.
The holders put their title on the line against Armagh at Brewster Park, Enniskillen, this afternoon and they’ll start as favourites against the Orchard County.
It’s Division 1 against Division 2 in the Ulster showpiece and Donegal really flexed their muscles in last weekend’s semi-final victory over Monaghan, with ace forwards Geraldine McLaughlin and Yvonne Bonner on song.
This Donegal team, if it gets on a roll, could made a big impact in this summer’s championship and should be considered as dark horses for Brendan Martin Cup glory.
Dublin remain the stand-out contenders to retain their national crown but if pitted against any of the chasing pack, Donegal would fancy their chances.
Armagh represent dangerous opposition, however, with lethal forward Aimee Mackin capable of posting a big score on any given afternoon.
Caroline O’Hanlon continues to pull the strings from the centre of the field for the Orchard County and they’ll be buoyant following a narrow three-point victory over Cavan in the semi-finals.
Mackin scored 1-4 from play in that game and, remarkably, top-scored for her side for the ninth time in as many outings in 2018.
