In a busy weekend of sport in Donegal - Naomh Conaill claimed the Division One Minor Championship title with a late goal against St. Eunan's - 1-11 to 0-11.
Glenfin won a first ever Division Three Minor Championship, defeating Malin by 1-13 to 2-6.
Finn Harps got a much needed point to almost assure they stay in the top flight of the SSE Airtricity League next season. They are six points ahead of Wexford Youths, who have two games to play - both away to Cork City (tonight) and Sligo Rovers on Friday night. Finn Harps' last game is at home to Bohemian FC on Friday night also.
One of the biggest events of the weekend saw Donal Reid launch his autobiography 'Confessions of a Gaelic Footballer' in the Abbey Hotel, Donegal Town on Saturday night. There was a huge attendance with many of his former All-Ireland winning team present.
Down the street in the Central Hotel, Peter O'Donnell was inducted into the Donegal Boxing Hall of Fame at their annual awards night.
In the all County GAA League, Kilcar bounced back from their county final defeat to defeat Ardara and send them to Division Two for the first time in 41 years. Glenswilly overcame Termon (without Michael Murphy) and it means that Termon are relegated with Ardara.
Killybegs will remain in the senior championship after their relegation win over Glenfin, who will be in the draw for the Intermediate Championship next year.
There was plenty of soccer action in the FAI Junior Cup while in the Saturday League, Glencar hit Fintown for 13.
There was a heavy defeat also for Raphoe Hockey Club in the Irish Senior Cup while Eoghain McGinley was first home in the New Mills 10k.
