A victory would be very sweet for Treacy


FIRST and foremost, Ger Treacy is a Fermanagh man. A Fermanagh man living in Tyrone but there’s no question that his roots are firmly embedded in Fermanagh GAA. On Saturday night, you’ll find him on the sideline with Kieran Donnelly and not for the first time. Back in 2011, Treacy was part of Peter Canavan’s backroom team alongside […]


Donnelly ready for formidable challenge


TWENTY-SIX years ago, 19 year-old Kieran Donnelly made his Ulster Championship debut for Fermanagh against Tyrone. The Brookeborough man lined out at wing half-forward that day but after helping keep the game competitive for a large part, they succumbed to a fairly heavy Tyrone beating down in Healy Park. Memories of defeats at the hands of Tyrone […]


Tyrone will ignite the spark in Breen


WORKING with Tyrone men on the sites around Belfast and Armagh lends itself to plenty of ‘slagging’ for electrician Aidan Breen, ahead of Satutrday’s big match. The Tempo man can take it though and laughs it off saying “ it’s a bit of craic” as he readies himself for his 102nd game in the green and […]


Everyone’s talking about it


AHEAD of Saturday’s big game, we caught up with some Fermanagh fans to hear their thoughts on how they see the game going and how the Ernemen can hurt the All Ireland champions. Lorraine McGoldrick, Derrygonnelly I would love to see a Fermanagh win but I think that given the squad depth in Tyrone and previous […]


McNally looking forward to a packed house in Brewster


By Mark McGoldrick SEAN McNally will be Fermanagh’s last line of defence on Saturday and will be standing between the posts and the classy Tyrone forwards of Darren McCurry, Cathal McShane and Darragh Canavan, to name a few. The thought of facing Tyrone doesn’t unease the Teemore man too much; “I think every team in the […]


Quigley hoping to spoil the party


HE may not be a secret weapon but he’s undoubtedly on Fermanagh’s frontline when it comes to scoring. The Roslea Shamrocks man is Ulster’s top marksman this season, amassing a seriously impressive 5-37 across the National League and McKenna Cup campaigns. Outscoring the Paddy McBrearty, Darren McCurry and Rian O’Neill’s of this world, to name but […]


‘Massive’ game for hurlers


FERMANAGH hurling captain Ryan Bogue says Saturday’s Division 3B league final against Longford is “massive” for the improvement of the team and for hurling in the county. “Playing games against better teams is the only way you improve” says the Tempo man, adding, “The group is probably at the right age profile now to make the step […]


Fermanagh feel ‘hard done by’ says Donnelly


On Monday afternoon, Fermanagh manager, Kieran Donnelly may have cooled off but the sense of frustration and anger at Sunday’s decision to rule Sean Quigley’s legitimate point wide was still very much simmering. The Roslea man very definitely put Fermanagh two points clear going into the final five minutes but the umpire and match officials […]


Donnelly ready for a tough game with Westmeath


After a disappointing performance by Kieran Donnelly’s side last Sunday when they succumbed to their second defeat of the campaign, the Brookeborough man, like everyone in Brewster Park, knew the goals conceded in the first half were their downfall. “We were looking to back our last two games with another win and it just didn’t […]


Same again, urges Donnelly


Fermanagh has never been a team associated with racking up a big score but on Saturday afternoon Kieran Donnelly’s men showed what they can do. 3-15 was a brave score against any team, especially in a tight Division Three league. The game was open from start to finish as play went from end-to-end and it […]
