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 […]

McGloin following in her late grandfather’s footsteps

All Ireland titles don’t come around too often for Fermanagh in any code. When the county’s senior men won the All Ireland Junior title in 1959, Molly McGloin’s grandfather, the late Joe Pat Prunty, was playing full back against Kerry that day, in New Eltham Stadium in London.  Joe Pat won four senior championships with […]

Wedding day won’t end Daly’s All-Ireland dreams

By John Carney IT WAS the result that nobody wanted last Sunday at Croke Park, least of all Fermanagh ladies manager James Daly. His side had just drawn 1-13 to 1-13 with Antrim in the TG4 All-Ireland Junior Championship Final, but he already had another big occasion on his mind. “I’m getting married on Friday,” Daly said […]

Girls had ‘a point to prove’ says Daly

THE delighted expression on James Daly’s face after the game said it all. The Armagh man admitted; “The girls, I think, felt they had a point to prove after they lost to Carlow last week. “London came out of the blocks flying but we got to grips with it. “They couldn’t contain Eimear (Smyth), Blaithin (Bogue) […]

Ulster glory would be a dream for captain Andrea

ANDREA Gordon’s rise to becoming Fermanagh captain is a surprising one. After turning 35 years of age, Gordon, who had been a stalwart of the Derrygonnelly ladies team, was given a trial by new Fermanagh manager James Daly in October. The Harps skipper impressed the Fermanagh manager, and not only did she get a place […]

Kinawley make it four in a row

THREE first half goals formed the foundations of Kinawley’s fourth successive Division One title but it wasn’t made for the Boru’s as Derrygonnelly staged quite a comeback as they came agonisingly close to achieving a first ever Harps title. Indeed, had it not been for an alert piece of goalkeeping by Donna Owens to intercept […]

Fermanagh players and manager call for Executive change

AT least 10 senior ladies players are prepared to walk away from intercounty football if “the current executive” remains in place. The news emerged last Wednesday, after the Fermanagh Herald obtained a letter issued by the players to the Fermanagh County Board, in which the players highlighted a list of grievances, ranging from sponsorship, fixtures, expenses, finances, gear […]

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 […]

Courteney raring to go again

Courteney Murphy will continue as Fermanagh ladies captain for the 2021 season. Murphy was captain last December when Fermanagh won the All Ireland Junior title against Wicklow, but the Kinawley woman was ruled out of that game through injury but delivered a passionate and memorable speech as she lifted the cup in Croke Park, on […]
