The Roscommon senior footballers had things all their own way against Donegal but they missed out on a Division One League final as a result of Galway’s victory over Kerry.

Davy Burke’s men recorded a 0-21 to 0-9 victory at Dr. Hyde Park to finish third in the division, enabling Roscommon to maintain their top flight status for the first time since 2016.

Donegal gave it a go early on, but once Roscommon found their stride, they kicked on impressively with Brian Stack, the Murtagh brothers, Enda Smith and Ben O’Carroll all impressing.

Leading by 0-12 to 0-7 at half time, the home side were in cruise control in the second half and even could afford the luxury of butchering a couple of goal chances.

Cian McKeon and Cian Connolly were introduced and kicked a few scores.

Overall, it was an extremely satisfactory league campaign for the Rossies as they look forward to a Connacht quarter-final clash with Mayo in two weeks’ time.
