After the fixtures were confirmed tonight for the Bank of Ireland Dr. McKenna Cup, Donegal's home games have been confirmed as Queen's and Fermanagh, with Monaghan away.
Donegal will open with a home game under lights against Queen's on Wednesday, 3rd January in MacCumhaill Park.
They will then travel to Clones to play Monaghan on Sunday, 7th, while the clash with Fermanagh (and Rory Gallagher) will be on Wednesday, 10th January, again under the lights in MacCumhaill Park..
It is probably one of the best outcomes for Declan Bonner's side, having the longest trip in daylight.
