Jackies keep All-Ireland dream alive

DUBLIN 2-14 DONEGAL 2-12 (After Extra Time)

The Jackies pulled off a the great escape
at Pearse Park on Saturday when Angie McNally
scored a late injury-time goal to beat Donegal
in their TG4 All-Ireland quarter-final and set
up a meeting with Kerry in the All-Ireland semi-final.

After trailing at half-time, some inspired scores
by player of the match Mary Nevin put Dublin ahead.
Sheila Campbell, who had scored Donegal’s first
half goal, scored the point to put the game into

team victory before McNally’s late strike.
