Late goals send Donegal into national league final

Two late goals from Emma McCrory and Yvonne Bonner propelled Donegal into the Lidl national football league Division 1 final next month as they snatched a dramatic win against holders Dublin in Saturday’s semi-final in Clones, on a final scoreline of 2-8 to 1-10.

Dublin led by 1-10 to 0-8 with less than three minutes remaining – but those two late Donegal goals arrived in a dramatic 30-second spell which turned the contest around.

Donegal, who have never won the Division 1 national football league title before, now prepare for final meeting with All-Ireland champions Meath after the Royals beat Mayo in Saturday’s second semi-final in Clones by 2-12 to 1-9.
