Donegal were crowned Under 21 Ulster football champions last night

Declan Bonner's men beat neighbours Derry 3-17 to 0-13 in the Final at the Athletic grounds, Armagh. It's a first provincial under 21 title for the Tir Chonaill men since 2010.

Donegal led 1-08 to 0-7 at the break, with Derry making little headway in the second half.  The Oakleafers difficulties were compounded after going down to 14 men.

Oisin Duffin was sent off to a black/red card after having previously been booked.  Derry also lost Shane McGuigan to a black card.

Donegal then cruised to the title, eventually running out 3-17 to 0-13 winners.

Donegal's reward is an All-Ireland semi final match-up with Dublin on Saturday 15th April.
