Donegal received an unexpected ticket boost this afternoon with the news that Tyrone returned 1,000 unsold tickets for Sunday’s Ulster quarter-final.

Officials from Tyrone had claimed MacCumhaill Park in Ballybofey, which will have a capacity of 17,520 this weekend, wasn’t big enough for the demand prior to yesterday.

“There would have been clubs which would have taken up the opportunity to bring bus-loads to that game,” said county chairman Ciaran McLaughlin earlier this month. “That for me was where we missed out, because we would have been able to market the game to a wider audience.

“There are people who want to get to the game that won’t get to the game, and that’s not good.”

The 1,000 tickets will be divided between Donegal’s 40 clubs. The breakdown is as follows: Aodh Ruadh 23, Ardara 35, Buncrana 36, Burt 23, Carndonagh 24

Cloughaneely 31, Convoy 18, Downings 18, Dungloe 41, Fanad Gaels 20, Four Masters 28, Glenfin 27, Glenswilly 30, Gaoth Dobhair 35, Kilcar 25, Killybegs 31, Letterkenny Gaels 24, Lifford 11, MacCumhaills 31, Malin 37

Milford 19, Moville 21, Muff 15, Na Rossa 22, Naomh Brid 16, Naomh Colmcille 11, Naomh Columba 38, Naomh Conaill 31, Naomh Mhuire 23, Naomh Ultan 16,

Pettigo 6, Red Hughs 29, Robert Emmets 20, Setanta 4, St Eunan’s 61, St Michael’s 31, St Naul’s 31, Termon 21, Urris 20.
