Donegal Start The First Step Looking For Sam
Donegal will have too much experience for Fermanagh and avoid an upset in Ulster to reach a provincial semi-final spot, according to Tomás Ó Sé.
The five-time All-Ireland winner admits that while there is a lot of mileage on the clock for some of their players, their defensive prowess will be enough to see off the challenge of Pete McGrath’s side in Ballybofey on Sunday (Live on RTÉ 1 at 2pm, live tracker on RTÉ.ie).
The Ernesiders were impressive in their preliminary round win over Antrim and after showing dogged determination in last year’s quarter-final defeat to Dublin, a serious assault for provincial honours is the next challenge.
Rory Gallagher’s side however are bidding for a sixth consecutive Ulster final appearance and the RTÉ GAA analyst is expecting the 2012 All-Ireland champions to make home advantage count.
“There’s a lot of talk about Donegal and their elder statesmen, that they're not the energetic team of old,” he said.
“I still think that they are very effective defensively and I think they will have too much for Fermanagh.
