Social Media Reaction – Donegal bask in Tyrone win

There was plenty of niggle during the Tyrone Donegal match on Saturday night

There was plenty of niggle during the Tyrone Donegal match on Saturday night

Donegal’s win over Tyrone was not merely two points on the board for Rory Gallagher’s side, it was a statement.

The Tir Chonaill men are a team in transition, and had went into Saturday night’s game as slight underdogs.

Many of the fans will have been thinking of last year’s guttting defeat to Tyrone in the Ulster final.  Tyrone hadn’t been beaten in the league since 2015, and as a result they were the fancied team.

Yet Donegal fans expected a big game from their team. Kevin Cassidy said in his Gaelic Life column that the rivalry had increased in intensity of late and he expected his county men to make a statement.

That is what they did, as they made life very difficult for Mickey Harte’s team.

The response to the win was one of joy from Donegal quarters, in particular Eamon McGee’s simple response to the win.

See the reaction that was on Twitter:



Will Ciaran Thompson's fantasy score improve in 2018?

I GOT a text from Sean O'Brien a few day ago. He is the coach of the brilliant All...

Ronan Scott says that all is not lost for those who missed out on week one's fantasy points.
