Sean MacCumhaill's and Bundoran are promoted to Division One after wins in Mountcharles and Malin

Sean MacCumhaill's and Bundoran will be playing their football in the top flight next season after today's results in the Donegal All-County League.
MacCumhaill's defeated St. Naul's in Mountcharles by 3-16 to 1-13, while Bundoran were winners in Malin 2-15 to 1-10.
The win for Twin Towns side means they are on 24 points, while Bundoran are now on 23. Naomh Columba are third, six points behind with three games to play.
But because Bundoran have already defeated Naomh Columba twice already this season, even if they lost their remaining games, they would still be promoted on the head to head.
MacCumhaill's secured the two points they needed with a strong performance. Goals from Aaron Kelly, Brian Lafferty and Gavin Gallagher as well as nine points from the O'Reilly brothers, Martin and Steven were central to the win.
Bundoran were always in control after their long trip to Malin. They led 0-7 to 0-3 at half-time having played against the wind and then struck for 2-5 without reply early in the second half, the goals from Gary Clancy and Tommy Hourihane.
They had Jamie Brennan in from the start along with Paul Brennan and also had strong performances from Shane McGowan, Pauric Rooney and Matthew Ward.
