Aidan McAteer admitted it "wasn't nice" watching the last few minutes as his Gaeil Fhánada side saw off Downings in Portsalon this evening.
McAteer's side were in a decent position five points up in the first half, but were more than happy to run out winners on a scoreline of 2-8 to 0-12 with Downings pressing a lot in closing stages with the hosts down to 14 men.
The two-point victory means that Gaeil Fhánada have won all three of their outings in Division 2 ahead of their trip to St Mary's in Convot next Saturday.
