Rory Gallagher pleased as Donegal romp to opening victory over Down

Donegal manager Rory Gallagher admits that there wasn't much he could find fault with as his side hammered Down 3-15 to 0-7 in the Football League opener at Newry.

"But we are very much aware that it was the first day and to be fair to Down, they had a lot of new players," said Gallagher.

"We are playing Cork next week. They have been one of the top five or six teams in the country for the last number of years and we'll expect them to be a lot stronger."
