Donegal are gunning for Ulster glory in the U-16 Championship Gold final this afternoon against Monaghan at Augher St MaCartan’s GAC in Tyrone, 3:30pm.

When the sides met in Lifford in the opening fixture, it was the visitors who came out on top in a narrow affair. Donegal put on a decent show but Monaghan came out on top on a 3-7 to 1-9 scoreline. Bronagh Butler scored the Donegal goal.
Liam Skelly’s side got back on track when they took on Antrim, with a 3-13 to 2-7 victory on the road.

Then, last month, Donegal posted victory over Cavan in a dramatic encounter, coming through on a scoreline of 4-18 to 6-9, with Ava Walsh hitting 1-6, Aisling O’Neill 2-1 and Bronagh Butler 1-4. Last time out, Tyrone overcame Donegal 5-13 to 2-11.

Monaghan, for their part, followed up their win over Donegal with a 5-7 to 2-7 success over Antrim. They lost 2-14 to 2-9 at Tyrone’s hands and were also beaten by Cavan, 4-12 to 0-7.
