Donegal can take advantage as old order is breaking up


THE most consistent county of the spring are league champions and the most unfortunate are runners-up. It is as if God has ordained that, irrespective of who wins, it must be at the expense of Mayo.

Yet the players keep trying and the supporters never lose the faith, someday the rock will be struck and water will spill out, until then their Croke Park drought continues.

Donegal were the better team last Sunday but if Andy Moran had stuck one in the net when he had a great chance in the last quarter, the long and windy road home might well have been a lot straighter. As it was, Moran was the only Mayo forward who consistently caused problems, yet only four points from play indicates a major area of concern ahead of the championship. This, on a very nice day for football.
