‘Just go for it’ urges O’Donnell


IT’S a big ask but one last year’s Intermediate Championship and Division Two double-winning side, Enniskillen, are looking forward to. Three teams have opted to play in a newly formed Fermanagh Senior Championship with Derrygonnelly and Kinawley fulfilling the other two spots. Kinawley are hot favourites to take the honours but Derrygonnelly will not be […]


McCarville ready to ‘put it to them’


Quietly she goes about her business, on and off the field. 22 year-old Sarah McCarville has been involved in the Fermanagh set-up since 2016, and was part of the 2017 and 2020 teams that won the Junior All Ireland. Interestingly, the Aghadrumsee player was the sub goalkeeper on the 2017 side that beat Derry in […]


Smyth not feeling the pressure


By Mark McGoldrick If Fermanagh are to get a result on Sunday and win their third All-Ireland title, a lot will depend on the performance of Eimear Smyth. The Derrygonnelly sharp-shooter has been in sensational form for the Ernesiders this season, scoring a superb 3-05 in their semi-final victory over Limerick to help secure a […]


Fermanagh secure semi final meeting with Limerick


By Mark McGoldrick The Fermanagh senior ladies team are now just one game away from a place in the All-Ireland Junior final. Fermanagh’s final group game with Derry, scheduled for last Sunday, was conceded by the Oak Leafers resulting in the Erne ladies getting the two points which moved them top of their group. The other […]


Things are looking up for Daly and Fermanagh ladies


Things are looking up for James Daly and Fermanagh ladies football. After a tumultuous start, Daly has welcomed back more players in the past week as he strengthens his squad ahead of the opening round of the National League, this Sunday. Scoring supremo Eimear Smyth has returned along with Sarah McCarville from Aghadrumsee and Aisling O’Brien […]


Determined Doonan ready for the Dubs


AS Kinawley ladies prepare for an All Ireland semi final this Sunday, the significance of it is not lost on their captain Joanne Doonan. She’s been there with the Boru’s, knocking on the door of Ulster for quite some time and finally, on November 13 they burst through the door, beating Derry champions Steelstown in […]


Gaels blow Belcoo away to take title and promotion


AN enthralling contest played in miserable conditions, essentially turned in the space of two minutes at the start of the second half, when the game’s only goal propelled Enniskillen into a lead which they never relinquished. The county town girls had trailed by two points at half time after Belcoo largely dominated the first half attacking play but […]


Garrity looking to build on Down game in bid to stay up


NO excuses, this has been a disappointing league campaign for Jonny Garrity and Fermanagh. The reigning junior champions have yet to seal a win and after a third loss on the bounce, at Brewster Park last weekend.   There was an air of disappointment for the Tyrone native, yet there were some positives.   “Overall, […]


Murphy hopeful the team can bounce back


FERMANAGH captain Courteney Murphy is eager to put last weekend’s disappointing performance against Sligo behind them, as they focus on their relegation battle with Down this weekend.   “It wasn’t a good performance, I think that was the worst of it. It was a strong Sligo team but we just didn’t perform at all. It […]


Sligo is as must win game says Doonan


IT wasn’t the start Joanne Doonan and her teammates were hoping for but the joint vice captain is drawing on the positives, rather than the negatives, after their defeat to Roscommon.   “We’re disappointed to lose but we have a lot to learn from that game and we should probably take  some confidence in a […]
