In response to the query McHugh Jnr said he did not think his dad would tip Donegal even if they were playing Antrim.But now Mark McHugh said he is sorry and that emotions were high after the game against Cork in the semi-final.“I talked it over with my father and he was not too happy about it. There was no offence intended to Antrim, who have quite a good record against Donegal.I should not have said it and I hope I have not caused offence,” he said.  DONEGAL STAR MCHUGH APOLOGISES OVER “OFF THE CUFF” REMARK ABOUT ANTRIM was last modified: September 5th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:AntrimdonegalMark McHughMartin McHughlast_img read more

Former Wolves and Derry City winger Brian McGroary pulled one back for Harps early in the second-half and Harps took control of the game.It looked as if it was only a matter of time before Harps equalized but then they were hit with a sucker-punch.Galway got the decisive goal Jake Keegan converted a penalty on 66 minutes.However, a dogged and spirited Harps side refused to back down and a goal from Keith Cowan brought them right back into the contest with fifteen minutes to go. Harps pressed hard for an equalizer that would send the game into extra-time but their attempts proved fruitless and for the second season running exited the EA Sports Cup to Galway United at Eamon Deacy Park. BRAVE HARPS BOW OUT OF EA SPORTS CUP AFTER FIVE-GOAL THRILLER WITH GALWAY was last modified: March 10th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DefeatEA Sports CupFinn Harps FCGalway UnitedLeague CupnewsSportlast_img read more
