Rory Gallagher would have been happy to see five players on the score sheet in that first half, Murphy hitting three of them from frees.Donegal levelled after the re-start through Patrick McBrearty before Odhran MacNiallais took Donegal ahead.But Mayo came storming back as Diarmaid O’Connor netted from a penalty.
