Donegal always had the edge in the first half and led 1-06 to 0-04 at half-time.

Eoin Concannon revived Galway with three points from out on the right, but Donegal's lead was never really threatened.

The arrival of McBrearty only strengthened Donegal up front and, even at this early stage, Jim McGuinness's men look on course for an immediate return to Division One.

After their two opening away wins, Donegal will face Ulster rivals Monaghan in their first home match when their campaign resumes on 2 March.
