Donegal have survived a scare in Ballybofey after beating Derry and former manager Rory Gallagher 16-15 in their Ulster Football Championship quarter-final.

Paddy McBrearty kicked an incredible point from play in injury time to win it for the hosts. They will now face Tyrone in a tough Ulster semi-final.

Elsewhere, Kerry beat Roscommon 3-21 to 2-13 in the 2020 minor football championship semi-final at the LIT Gaelic Grounds this afternoon.

Earlier today it was confirmed that Mayo and Galway will contest the Connacht Senior Football Championship final for a second consecutive year.

It comes after the Green and Red hammered Leitrim 5-20 to 11 points at MacHale Park this afternoon.

James Horan was forced into a number of changes after a cohort of players in the camp were close contacts of a Covid case.

In a statement Mayo GAA said at the time: “We are currently working with the HSE on a number of Covid-19 related queries amongst members of the County Senior Football panel.

“Mayo GAA are following HSE guidelines and our Senior team are continuing their preparation for Sunday’s Connacht Championship game versus Leitrim.”

Darren McHale, Darren Coen, Ryan O'Donoghue and Tommy Conroy all found the back of the net for Mayo.
