Donegal minors cruise to easy Fermanagh victory

Donegal boys minor gaelic footballers made a winning start to their 2022 Ulster Championship campaign on Saturday with an emphatic 4-16 to 0-5 victory over Fermanagh at MacCumhaill Park in Ballybofey.

Luke Barrett’s side led by 1-6 to 0-2 at the interval but three second-half goals helped them pull well clear of their Erne opponents.

Daithí Gildea contributed 2-6 of Donegal’s tally in a very one-sided contest as they booked a semi-final place in the Ulster minor championship.

There were two more minor quarter-finals scheduled for later on Saturday, with Antrim playing Derry and holders Tyrone taking on Cavan.

After the game, Gildea spoke to Ocean FM Sport’s Ciaran Cannon:

Ulster minor football championship 1/4 finals

Tyrone 3-17 Cavan 1-15
