Ronan O’Neill joins Fermanagh backroom team


Tyrone All Ireland winner Ronan O’Neill has joined the Fermanagh senior squad’s backroom team. O’Neill’s appointment was ratified last Monday night and he will be joining as a coach with particular emphasis on forward play, confirmed Fermanagh selector Ger Treacy. The Omagh St Enda’s club man is one of the up-and-coming coaches in the country […]


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 […]


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 […]


No decision yet on McMenamin’s future


WITHIN minutes of the final whistle, Ryan McMenamin was sat up in the Gerry Arthur stand in St Tiernach’s Park with dictaphones pointing at him from all directions. Hard questions, easy question- the Dromore man, answered them all.   One question that wasn’t asked was “will you stay?” or “do you want to stay?” but […]
