Brothers Ryan and Mark McHugh along with their cousin Eoin certainly made their mark in Donegal's colours this year, their consistency helping to take the side into the Ulster final where they lost to Tyrone before exiting the All-Ireland series to Dublin at the quarter-final stage.

Tonight the McHughs will set their focus on a different goal when they line out with Kilcar against Termon in the quarter-finals of the Donegal Championship at Ballybofey (8.30pm).

They will be joined in the Kilcar line-up by sharpshooter Patrick McBrearty and the presence of this talented quartet is one reason why the west Donegal club is among the short-odds favourites for the title.

Glenswilly will also be in action today against Sean MacCumhaills (4.00pm) while reigning champions Naomh Conaill will tomorrow meet St Eunan's who they defeated in last year's final.

The semi-finals of the Cavan Championship will be staged tonight when Gowna take on Castlerahan (6.00pm) and Ramor United oppose Lavey (7.30pm).
