So Donegal won their Ulster SFC preliminary round match against Tyrone as we all expected.
What we may not have expected was how close Tyrone ran Rory Gallagher’s side, as the game ended up at 1-13 to 1-10 but Mickey Harte’s Red Hands never gave up in an entertaining match at Ballybofey.
The game was also notable because of the pushing and shoving match at half time, as well as the double sending off of Neil Gallagher first, and then Tyrone’s Sean Cavanagh.
Here’s what Social Media said about the match:
Tyrone changed tactics and are now pushing up on Donegal and pressing them high. It’s working. Very enjoyable half

Nice of Justy to let Murphy out of his pocket to hit an odd free

Fair play 2 Justin McMahon.Kept Murphy ridiculously quiet from play. Take Murphys frees out of it & he wasnt spectacular. #DonegalVsTyrone
