ST NAUL’S stand an hour away from the Ulster Intermediate final – but boss Barry Meehan says his men face a mammoth task on Sunday.
St Naul’s take on Galbally from Tyrone at Celtic Park with a berth in the Ulster decider up for grans.
St Naul’s, who came from nine points down against Naomh Columba in a Donegal IFC quarter-final, ended their years of pain in winning the county title, but now they’ve lifted their sights once more.
“We’re expecting a huge, huge challenge,” Meehan told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub.
“They’re a serious side. I’ve been very impressed with them. People are talking about them being the favourites for the Ulster Intermediate.
“They’re really on an upward curve and we’re ready for a huge battle.”
St Naul’s have come through the mill at times in 2019 and Meehan believes that experience will stand to the Mountcharles side.
Meehan said: “I do believe we’re battle-hardened. Division 2 in Donegal was a great experience for us. We had a lot of games when we had to come back from the jaws of defeat. That has stood us in good stead for the Championship.”
