Roscommon hurlers lose to Donegal

Roscommon hurlers’ chances of making it to the Nicky Rackard Cup final have been dealt a blow after a 1-25 to 2-10 defeat at the hands of Donegal in Dr Hyde Park on Saturday.

Donegal led by 1-13 to 0-8 at half-time in the sunshine and despite late Roscommon goals from Robbie Fallon and Brendan Mulry Donegal won with a bit to spare.

Now Roscommon face a ‘winner take all’ contest against Mayo in Dr Hyde Park next weekend with the victors going into the final in Croke Park.
