I can see it both ways. They have 10 players involved in both. They havent won an Donegal in something like 20-30 years. At the end of the day, an U21 is a grand yoke to have, but its a bit mickey mouse all the same. They will be hoping that by failing to fulfill the fixture, public opinion will be on their side and they’ll get a refixture in deepest darkest December. I can see this working out for them really. Possibly tough on their opponents obviously, but I think a Club on a provincial run should get any help going.
Worth remembering they played a Div 1 final a week after their county final as well, and I’m not aware of what sort of run of games they were on up to that point. In recent years, the Donegal SFC has been a bit jokeshop in its execution.
