Once Donegal found their scoring boots in the final quarter, they won quite handily, mainly thanks to an Adrian Hanlon goal on 59 minutes.

Donegal led by 0-6 to 0-2 at the break but allowed St Mary's back within a point, before getting on the scoresheet with Colm McFadden 20 minutes into the second half.

And when Hanlon struck for a goal after being put through by Gareth Concarr, they soon tagged on points with ease. The win means Donegal have now qualified for the semi-final stages of the competition.

Scorers -- Donegal: Colm McFadden 0-7 (0-4f), Dara Gallagher 0-4, Adrian Hanlon 1-1, Gareth Concarr 0-1.
