McGuinness: We didn't want to be remembered for a 16-point loss to Mayo

Donegal manager Jim McGuinness has hailed his side after their emphatic win over Dublin and said last year's hammering at the hands of Mayo spurred his team on.

The Ulster champions weathered an early Dublin storm and stunned their highly regarded opponents with a game plan that Jim Gavin's side had no answer to.

"We're delighted," he conceded in his post-match interview.

"We came with a game plan and we executed it. I'm very, very proud of them, regardless of the result. We spoke of honesty at half-time and that is what we got."

Last year Donegal were denied the opportunity to hold onto Sam Maguire when Mayo embarrassed the champions 4-17 to 1-10 in the semi-final and McGuinness said the somber defeat gave the management and players with a lot to mull over.

"There was a lot of soul searching," he conceded.

"We had some serious meetings and questions were asked of the boys."

"No one wanted to be remembered for a 16-point loss to Mayo."
