The Donegal debacle — Varley and Poacher

Enda Varley and Steven Poacher discuss the current situation of Donegal GAA, with Paddy Carr departing the senior job

Enda Varley and Steven Poacher discuss the current situation of Donegal GAA, with Paddy Carr departing the senior job.

Sunday (1.45): Galway v Kerry, Pearse Stadium; Roscommon v Donegal, Dr. Hyde Park; Tyrone v Armagh, Omagh;  Mayo v Monaghan, Hastings Insurance MacHale Park. 

What’s decided? Mayo have qualified for the final.  

What’s to be decided? Galway (8 points), Kerry, Roscommon, Tyrone (6 points each) are all in with a chance of reaching the final. A draw against Kerry would be enough to earn Galway a place in the final, irrespective of results elsewhere.  Donegal (3), Monaghan (4), Armagh (5) have relegation concerns, with Donegal most at risk as they not only need to beat Roscommon but also hope other results go their way to have any chance of avoiding the drop.

Sunday’s Games 
Galway are seeking their first win over Kerry since 2018 when they won a Division 1 game by three points. Kerry have won four times since then – by a point in the 2019  and 2020 Leagues; by 23 points in the 2021 League and by four points in last year’s All-Ireland final. 

Roscommon and Donegal last met in the League in 2017 when Donegal won by a point. Mayo beat Monaghan by two points in last year’s League. 

Tyrone and Armagh met twice last year, with Armagh winning both. They won by six points in both the League and All-Ireland championship qualifier.
