Ulster team of the league

WITH the dust settling on the National League finals, silverware foe Derry and Donegal and with the Ulster Championship on our doorstep, we have selected our team of Ulster players based on the league

Niall Morgan (Tyrone)
Morgan made some vital saves and acted as a playmaker as Tyrone secured their top flight status.

Conor McCluskey (Derry)
McCluskey hit three goals to follow on from last year’s All-Star form.

Eoin McEvoy (Derry)
His 2-2 in the final cemented an excellent season despite being the youngest player in Mickey Harte’s side.

Peter McGrane (Armagh)
The find of the year for Kieran McGeeney and joined the long list of scoring defenders in the game.

Ceilum Doherty (Down)
The number four jersey he donned was irrelevant. The Kilcoo man was here, there and everywhere in Down’s promotion chase.

Caolan McGonagle (Donegal)
One of most consistent players since Jim McGuinness returned. He played between centre-back and midfield. Excellent positional sense.

Peadar Mogan (Donegal)
See Ceilum Doherty. Mogan has been another shining light as Donegal secured promotion back to Division One.

Conor Glass (Derry)
The Derry skipper has had an amazing start to 2025 on and off the field. Where does he play? Wherever Derry need him,.

Odhrán Murdock (Down)
With 5-10 to his name, the Burren man was an important part of everything Down did. Popped up at full forward at different times.

Ethan Doherty (Derry)
Stop Ethan Doherty and you can blunt Derry’s cutting edge. Easier said than done. The King of assists.

Shane McGuigan (Derry)
The leading ace in Derry’s attacking unit. The top scorer across Ulster and not afraid to roll up his sleeves and get work done elsewhere.

Dáire Ó Baoill (Donegal)
Was excellent last season and has been even better this year. His 2-3 tally against Fermanagh was sensational.

Darragh Canavan (Tyrone)
Small in stature but a giant in the game. Balance. Scoring power. An eye for a pass. He has it all.

Oisín Gallen (Donegal)
Looks very much like the player McGuinness can mould into a leader they need since Michael Murphy stepped aside.

Oisin Conaty (Armagh)
Oisin who? That’s what people were asking at the start of the year. Not anymore. A scoring machine.
