Donegal County Board Chairman Mick McGrath was in the Cross to present the SHL title trophy to their captain Denim Rowan.

Setanta 2-15
Buncrana 1-12

The Finn Valley had already clinched the title last week-but visitors Buncrana gave them quite a tussle in an absorbing affair where both sides were wasteful with Setanta hitting 11 wides to the visitors total of 13.

The home side led at the break on a score of Setanta 1-7 Buncrana 0-6. The returned Marc Devine got their first half goal and ended up with 1-6 from play.

Buncrana had only two scorers with ace marksman Caolan O’Neill landing 0-12, two coming from play while Oisin Grant got the goal.

Ryan Coyle had the Setanta goal in the second half while young county panellist Oisin Marley hit 0-6 with 0-3 coming from play to end a most successful campaign for Setanta.
