Declan Bonner’s side had room to spare as they notched two goals and 20 points to Cavan’s 1-15 on Sunday, setting up a quarter-final tie with Derry in two weeks’ time. They were backed into 7/4 from 7/2 overnight and are closing in on 5/4 favourites Tyrone, who begin their campaign against 16-time Ulster Champions Monaghan this weekend.
Donegal also closed into 20/1 from 33/1 in the All-Ireland outright market and now find themselves just behind 16/1 shots Mayo, who drifted significantly off the back of their last ditch defeat to Galway in Castlebar.
Johnny Heaney’s injury time goal means Galway are now odds-on favourites at 8/15 to win the Connacht title, and 10/1 from 12/1 to get their hands on the Sam Maguire for the first time in 17 years.
Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “Donegal once again looked formidable at home and although their road form will be put to the test at Celtic Park in a fortnight, our customers have backed them into 7/4 from 7/2 for the Ulster title and are clearly confident that Donegal will be contesting the final for the seventh time in eight years.”
