Downings advance to Ulster semi-final

Donegal junior champions Downings have successfully negotiated their first hurdle in the Ulster championships.

They beat Derry’s Magilligan by 1-9 to 0-10 in Sunday afternoon’s quarter-final tie, played at Celtic Park in Derry.

There was disappointment in the Ulster Junior Hurling Championship final for Mac Cumhaill’s, however.

They lost out to Antrim side Lamh Dhearg in Owenbeg on a scoreline of 16 points to 13.
