Donegal’s captain Michael Murphy kicked eight frees for DCU but they still went down by five points to their Dublin rivals, DIT, on a scoreline of 1-11 to 0-9 in the semi-final of the Daily Mail Sigerson Cup semi-final in Athlone.

DIT led by 0-8 to 0-4 at half-time and never allowed DCU get close before a goal nine minutes from time finally sealed the issue.

Four Masters’ Oisin McGinty is part of the DIT panel, who will meet UCC or Athlone IT in the final tomorrow.
