Donegal beat fierce rivals Tyrone in the Ulster Senior Football championship quarter final 1-13 to 1-11.

It was a tight affair in a wet and windy Ballybofey as after a strong start from Tyrone, a goal from Michael Lanagan got Donegal on track.


The home team remained ahead for much of the first half as they lead by two points going into half time.

Tyrone hit back though early in the second half with a goal from Darragh Canavan, putting them ahead by two.

Both teams went tit for tat for the rest of the game until Donegal pulled away near the end with points from Ciarán Thompson and Oisin Gallen.

A 48th-minute penalty goal by Aaron Gillane, after Cathal Barrett brought down the terrific Gearóid Hegarty, hurt Tipperary after the All-Ireland holders had opened the second half with three unanswered points.
