The dates and throw-in times for next weekend’s decisive matches in the group stages of the Michael Murphy Sports & Leisure Donegal senior and intermediate football championships have been confirmed.
All eight senior games, which will finalise who makes the quarter-finals, will be played next Sunday at 3pm.

Seven teams, including Naomh Conaill, Gweedore and St Michael’s, are already assured of quarter-final places. Kilcar’s 23-point win against Glenswilly on Sunday, sees them through ahead of their trip to Glenfin next Sunday. St Eunan’s, Glenfin and MacCumhaill’s can also start planning for county quarter-finals.
A draw for Bundoran, who are currently eighth in the standings, against Ardara will mathematically ensure a place in the last eight. Four Masters could yet make it if they beat Milford but they would also need a most unlikely series of results elsewhere for them to make final eight.
The final round of group matches in the intermediate championships will be played on Saturday evening at 6:30pm.
