“Declan Coulter had a bag of tricks to get away”

RONAN McGurn gives his thoughts on the players and teams he has faced…

Ronan McGurn.

Age: 22.

Teams played for: Lisbellaw (hurling), Belnaleck (football) and Fermanagh (hurling).

Who are your main rivals?

We always seem to be coming up against Louth so it’s probably them at the moment.

Which opposition ground do you like playing on and why?

We played Armagh in Crossmaglen last year, which was a good set up.

Which opposition ground do you dislike going to and why?

Considering every time we play Louth it seems to be an away game, I am sick of going to Darver.

What team have you enjoyed the most success against?

We only had one win this year so I’ll save that question for next year when we bounce back.

Which team have you enjoyed least success against?

Same as above.

Which opposition player have you enjoyed marking?

Declan Coulter for Donegal – had a load of tricks in his bag to try get away from me.

Which opposition player have you disliked marking?

There’s none that stand out too much.

Which player would you transfer in from a team you have come up against?

I’d take Brian Teehan from Moneygall, the whispering assassin.

Which team, apart from your own, do you like to see do well and why?

It’s good to see any of the new hurling clubs in Fermangh doing well at senior level and underage.

What’s the most frustrating defeat you have experienced?

Losing the Ulster Intermediate quarter-final to Carrickmore after conceding a last-second goal to bring it to extra-time.

What’s the most satisfying victory you have experienced?

Winning the Division 3B final was probably the first big win I played a part in.

What is the best score you’ve seen from an opponent?

When we played Mayo, one of their players flicked the ball up to themselves and volleyed it into the top corner from the 21.

Which club, apart from your own, has the most impressive facilities?

Ederney probably has the best set up in Fermanagh.
