DIARMUID CONNOLLY PLAYED a pivotal role in helping Donegal Boston to a senior championship title over the weekend, scoring 0-12 in the Boston Senior Championship final on Sunday.

Donegal Boston defeated Wolfe Tones 0-17 1-12 in the decider, with the St Vincent’s clubman hitting four points in the semi-final last weekend.

Connolly has been absent from the Dublin senior football squad for this year’s championship after making a second-half substitute appearance in a National League clash with Mayo in February.

He linked up with Donegal Boston earlier this summer and the five-time All-Ireland winner hit two points in his first game for the side against Connemara Gaels at the start of July.

His performance in Sunday’s final rounds off a strong championship campaign for the two-time All-Star in Boston, as Dublin prepare for the All-Ireland SFC final against Tyrone this coming weekend.
