Social Media Reaction: Donegal fans told to be civil

Michael Murphy was black carded against Galway at the weekend

Donegal had a thoroughly disappointing day on Saturday when they lost to Galway by 4-17 to 0-14 in their All-Ireland Qualifier clash at Markievicz Park.

Rory Gallagher’s Tir Chonaill side finished the game with just 13 men as they had two players black carded, and they were unable to be replaced as all their subs had been used. Mark Anthony McGinley, Martin McElhinney and Michael Murphy all left the field early.

Galway were the better team throughout, though in the aftermath Gallagher emphasised that his team was very young, and they still have plenty to learn.

A number of pundits and Twitterati warned against judging the current Donegal panel too harshly for the performance.

However, many fans sought to express their dissatisfaction at Rory Gallagher’s management.



Will Paddy McBrearty's fantasy score improve in 2018?
