Quigley a ‘major doubt’ for Tailteann Cup game

Fermanagh manager Kieran Donnelly is first and foremost happy to know who their opposition is in just over a week’s time.

Ulster glory would be a dream for captain Andrea

ANDREA Gordon’s rise to becoming Fermanagh captain is a surprising one.

FERMANAGH hurling manager, Joe Baldwin, expressed how proud he is of the Fermanagh hurling squad after they came so close to toppling Armagh in Crossmaglen, on Saturday.

Baldwin ‘incredibly proud’ of players despite defeat

FERMANAGH hurling boss Joe Baldwin says he’s ‘incredibly proud’ of his players even if the result didn’t go their way in a narrow defeat to Tyrone on Saturday.

Feely expecting ‘tough challenge’ from Donegal

By Mark McGoldrick WHILE the Fermanagh forward line of Cian O’Brien, Kealan Fitzpatrick and Mattie McDermott stole all the headlines on Saturday evening for their clinical display, further down the pitch, another man was catching the eye for his steely performance – Lanty Feely. Feely, a Devenish clubman, slotted in at full back on the minor […]

Captaining Fermanagh is a ‘massive honour’ for Gordon

For over two decades, Gordon has been one of the stalwart of the Derrygonnelly Harps ladies team and when new […]

Donnelly has ‘nothing but credit’ for his players

IT doesn’t come much tougher than the All-Ireland champions in your first season in charge as manager but Kieran Donnelly and Fermanagh met the challenge head on to their credit. There was no ‘parking the bus’, the Erne men attacked this game as much as their counterparts and by half time they trailed by a […]
