Declan Bonner became only the third Donegal manager – after Brian McEniff and Jim McGuinness – to guide Donegal to an Ulster SFC title today.
A 2-18 to 0-12 win over Fermanagh in Clones saw Bonner complete the trick in his first year back in the job – and 20 years after Joe Brolly and Derry denied him late in the 1998 final.
