That figures -- Kenny writes off Donegal
THE writing's on the wall for Donegal this weekend -- at least according to the Taoiseach.
On a visit to the new offices of payment services company Realex Payments, in Dublin yesterday, ardent Mayo fan Enda Kenny gave his prediction for Sunday's All-Ireland clash, scribbling the result on a whiteboard.
At first glance, it appeared he was far from confident about his county's ability, predicting the final result would be Mayo 2-10, Donegal 1-13. But on reflection, the keen GAA follower stripped Donegal of a point.
Colm Lyons, Realex chief executive, said: "He looked at it and said that's a draw and everybody will be back for the replay. Then he joked and made it a win for Mayo."
