Defending champions Gaoth Dobhair are safely through to the quarter-finals of the Donegal SFC after topping Group A.

On Sunday afternoon they were simply too strong for Ardara in Kentucky and emerged victorious on a scoreline of 2-19 to 0-7 to secure their place in the last eight.

St. Eunan's also made it through, but only after a real battle at The Bridge in Dunfanaghy where they got the point that they needed against St. Michael's.

It finished 12 points each with Conall Dunne's late score proving crucial for the Letterkenny side.

St. Michael's may well reflect on what might have been, especially in the first half when they missed a number of chances and Michael Langan was denied by a super save from Shaun Patton.

Niall O'Donnell was once again to the fore for Eunan's who saw veteran Rory Kavanagh picked up a red card late on.

Despite the best efforts of Christy Toye, who put in a great shift, the home side just could not get over the line.
