Maxi Curran admitted that his Donegal ladies were ‘well beaten by a better team’ in this afternoon’s Lidl NFL Division 1 semi-final.
The Tribeswomen defeated Donegal 1-12 to 1-5 in Longford and Curran had few complaints.
It was the second defeat at Galway’s hands in recent times, but this one was different.

“We left Corofin and there were nine points in it and we felt the game wasn’t a reflection of the score-line,” Curran told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub.
“Today was the opposite. We were well beaten by a better team. We couldn’t get to the pitch of it.”
Still, however, Curran wasn’t too downbeat and says his team will reflect on a positive spring as they head for the Championship and a June showdown with Tyrone.
He said: “It’s a good day at the office for us and it’s been a very good League for us.
“It’s all about the Championship and the League is a means to an end. When the dust settles, we’ll be happy enough with how the League went. We’ll take a lot of learning out of it.”
