There were unbridled scenes of joy in Machaire Gathlán last night as Gaoth Dobhair brought home the Seamus McFerran Cup.
In becoming the first Donegal club since 1975 to win an Ulster title, Gaoth Dobhair broke new ground not just for themselves, but for this era of Donegal football.
Seaghan Ferry’s point in extra time was the match winner as Gaoth Dobhair eventually overcame Scotstown 0-13 to 0-12.
Rarely has Gaoth Dobhair felt alive as in those moments when the team bus arrived in a parish that was already in dreamland after Mervyn O’Donnell’s team won a first Donegal SFC in 12 years.
The clubhouse was packed to capacity and the roof was almost lifted from the walls as captain Niall Friel carried in the treasured piece of silver.
