Gaoth Dobhair manager Meryvn O'Donnell is under no illusions about the task facing his side against Corofin in tomorrow's All-Ireland club SFC final, labelling the reigning champions as the 'Rolls Royce' of Gaelic football.

Speaking to the Irish News, O'Donnell stated: "I watched their county final and the Connacht final and they are the Rolls Royce of Gaelic football. They have players who can win matches all over the field.

"They also have a great understanding of how to win matches and they have a great ability to come back when they go behind, and they can ram in two goals in a heartbeat.

"They have scored 18 goals in all competitions this year and this is a big danger and they have scoring threats all over the field.

"Ian Burke, the Farraghers, Michael Lundy, Gary Sice and Kieran Molloy are all top performers and they also have the hurler Daithi Burke and Kieran Fitzgerald. It is not a case of having to mark just three or four, they have top quality all over the field."
