Burt and Setanta have met in 20 Donegal SHC finals over the years – and the margins are wafer thin between them.
Burt have won eleven of the final meetings with Setanta victorious in the other nine clashes.

“I’m a pure Burt man and the county is long gone on Saturday,” McCann says.
“It’s very personal and the rivalry is very close.
“There is a serious rivalry there. The county will all be put aside and it’ll be hell-for-leather.”
