Donegal hurlers were recently promoted to Division 2B but they came up short against Roscommon in the preliminary round of the Nicky Rackard Cup.

This Saturday, they will take on old rivals Monaghan at 2.30pm in O’Donnell Park, Letterkenny. In the last 15 months Donegal have beaten Monaghan a total of three times at O’Donnell Park. Last year, they were victorious over Monaghan in the Nicky Rackard Cup semi-final and in April they took home the Allianz Hurling League Div. 3A trophy.

Donegal will be hoping to retain their championship status in Saturday’s qualifier against Monaghan.
