Castlerahan bowed out of the Ulster senior championship after an under-par performance saw them lose out to Donegal 1-11 to 11 points.
Newly crowned Donegal champions Naomh Conaill showed no ill-effects of playing their fourth game in 14 days after a very fast start.
The Donegal champions were always in control of the game and led by a goal at 1-5 to five points.
it wasn’t long into the second half that the Donegal side the victors were humming again as McGuinness, Ciaran Thompson and Jeaci McKevley left it at double scores come the 40th minute.
Donal Keogan’s trailing side mounted a mini-revival in the closing 10 minutes that saw Ronan Flanagan, Karl Cosgrave (2) and Daly all raising white flags but they still finished three short in the end.
