Who will win the Democrat Cup?

The club leagues in Donegal have almost all been decided after the weekend games, but one big question remains - who will win the Democrat Cup as Division One winners.

The top three, Kilcar, Naomh Conaill and Gaoth Dobhair all won their games at the weekend, and it looks like a sudden-death decider in Glenties on Sunday week, November 6th, when Naomh Conaill host Kilcar in the last game.

That game should attract a bumper attendance, as it is a repeat of the championship semi-final, which Kilcar surprisingly won by a big margin, 5-10 to 1-11. At the moment Kilcar are one point ahead in the table and they need just a draw to take the title.

The relegation issues in Division One were also decided with Ardara making the drop for the first time in 41 years after losing to Kilcar. They will be joined by Termon in Division Two after they lost out in the relegation battle to Glenswilly, the county champions winning 2-7 to 0-10, despite the absence of Michael Murphy.


Elsewhere, the relegation issue in Division Three was finalised with Naomh Ultan and Fanad Gaels securing the results at the weekend that keep them in the Division for next year. Fanad drew with Downings while Naomh Ultan defeated Letterkenny Gaels. Those results mean Urris and Naomh Colmcille are relegated to Division Four next year.
