Shaun Paul Barrett’s males received all three video games to prime Group Some time Derry completed Runners-up behind Tyrone in Group B after which beat Cavan in a Quarter-Last playoff. They’ll present Donegal with their hardest take a look at but for a spot within the Ulster Last in opposition to both Tyrone or Monaghan.                                                 

On Saturday subsequent, Donegal’s unbeaten Minor staff will likely be hoping to make it three wins from three once they journey to Pairc Elser in Newry to fulfill Down.
