The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has congratulated Derry’s senior footballers following their Championship success.

The team beat Donegal after extra-time in Clones yesterday (Sunday 29th May) to clinch their first Ulster title in 24 years.

Commenting after the win, Councillor Richard Holmes said: “I want to offer the players, their manager and coaches, my congratulations following their Championship victory. The teams deserve a huge amount of credit for their performance, and the scenes after the final whistle showed us how much this win meant to the supporters - a day to remember for everyone involved and I wish them continued success as they prepare for the All-Ireland series now.

“I would like to mention the County’s Minor team who fell just short in their final against Tyrone – they may not have won on the day but to have a team in each final is an achievement in itself, and they should be very proud of themselves.”
