"We’ve secured transport from Derry for next weekend’s match," he said. "I am delighted that Translink have acted so quickly on this...I am looking forward to travelling with thousands of fans from across the county to see the match next weekend."

It is the first appearance by the senior Derry footballers in an All Ireland Quarter Final since they were defeated narrowly by Dublin in 2007. Bus loads of fans are expected to flock to the capital to watch the Ulster Champions take on the 'Banner' men next Saturday.
