Donegal GAA chiefs took the decision last night (Monday) to put the senior club championship clash of Malin and Kilcar back until the June Bank Holiday weekend..

The game, which is a second leg preliminary round tie, was fixed for next weekend. However, following Donegal minors’ win over Cavan in the preliminary round of the Ulster Championship on Sunday, and their Ulster quarter-final clash with Derry, in Omagh on Sunday evening, the fixture had been thrown into jeopardy.

This has come about as two of Kilcar’s senior squad Ryan and Eoin McHugh and Malin goalkeeper Daniel Mullarkey is also the minor netminder, are members of the Donegal minor tem.

The Donegal Competitions Control Committee met on the matter last night and a request before them from Kilcar to postpone the game to the following weekend was granted.

Kilcar won the first leg game in Towney rather comfortably on a 2-11 to 0-6 scoreline with Ryan McHugh playing a pivotal role in the victory.

His cousin Eoin was introduced as a sub after 18 minutes while Daniel Mullarkey played the full-game in goals for Malin.
