Galway 2-11

Donegal 4-21

Donegal Ladies booked their league semi-final spot in style on Sunday with a comprehensive victory over Galway in Tuam.

Maxi Curran's squad dominated the hosts from the whistle, with two goals apiece from Karen Guthrie and Geraldine McLaughlin helping them to a 4-08 to 0-09 halftime lead.

A wonder goal from Galway captain Mairead Seoighe early into the second half gave last year's All-Ireland semi-finalists a glimmer of hope, but a superb tactical display from Donegal saw them run out the convincing winners by a hefty 16 points.

As group toppers they will now play Division 1B runners-up Cork in next weekend's semi-final, while Dublin will take on Mayo in the other.
