This is a product of the Jimmy McGuinness years. I stand corrected but it appears as though a lot of Donegal club teams play in this same defensive manner.

We won an U16 hurling match once 0-01 to 0-00.

Does that count?

The rest of the games in Donegal were all normal or high scoring. This was a one of in the full season and is being used for the usual over the top nonsense. Did I not read these two teams played out a high scoring game only a few months ago?

Flicked through the Donegal club results in division 1 this year and it's full of high scoring games. In the other three games played at the weekend there was ten goals.

It only counts if it happened in Ulster. Like everything else on this board.

Newtownstewart. They gave us Finbar and Pascal McConnell. Low score must have been due to their excellence in goalkeeper development. Explains why they couldn't score but didn't concede.

The notorious Windmill GFC (pronounced 'the Wine-mill') won and lost a few games 2 points to 1 as I recall. The Windmill field sloped R-L but their innovative groundsman mowed the rushes to hide the slope so it looked level.    If you were playing up the hill your full back was standing knee-deep in rushes!

The story goes that when playing downhill the attacking team lost the ball in the rushes and their forward kicked a hare over the bar!

Ah now don't confuse the issue and the outrage with facts! ;D
