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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
QUIETLY he goes about the job in hand, on and off the field but Eamon McHugh is a key man in the heart of this Derrygonnelly team. The 33 year old joiner, by his own admission, won’t be the one you hear shouting and roaring but he’s as determined as anyone on the team to get over the […]
It was all so promising at half time. But a dominant second half performance from Monaghan means it will be they rather than Fermanagh who will be preparing for the Ulster final on July 19th.
Fermanagh have booked their place in the Ulster semi-final, but not before weathering a dogged challenge from a determined 14 man Antrim outfit, a late Sean Quigley penalty putting a handsome complexion on the final scoreline.
