Third time lucky for Lyons?

By Katrina Brennan THE last time Erne Gaels and Derrygonnelly went head to head in a Senior Championship Final was back in 2016. Ryan Lyons was the captain that day and on Sunday (Brewster Park, 2pm), he will again lead the Erne Gaels team out at Brewster Park but this time he’ll be hoping for […]

McGullion ready to lead Harps to glory

By John Carney THEY may not have been the ‘Gaels’ they thought they’d face in the championship final, but Shane McGullion and his Derrygonnelly side will not be underestimating Belleek in Sunday’s senior decider. When Erne Gaels beat Enniskillen Gaels 1-10 to 0-9 last Sunday in Kinawley to reach the county final and put out the holders, it came […]

Donnelly satisfied with important Derrylin win

DERRYLIN scraped a ‘vital’ one-point win over Erne Gaels in Belleek on Friday evening to take a potentially significant step towards Division One safety.

Player safety is paramount, says Enniskillen boss Bradley

By Katrina Brennan ON Monday afternoon, Enniskillen Gaels manager Simon Bradley said it’s a case of resetting now as they prepare for the rescheduled senior championship final this Sunday.

Enniskillen learning lessons of last year

By Niall Gartland ENNISKLLEN Gaels endured a chastening experience in last year’s county final, but they assessed the situation, made the necessary changes, and will see Sunday’s decider Erne Gaels as a real opportunity to win their first senior championship title since 2016. They were ground down by a hardened Derrygonnelly Harps team, but their […]

Erne Gaels bidding to cap off a brilliant season

By Niall Gartland ERNE Gaels have undergone a swift resurgence under their manager Seamus Ryder, and they’ll be quietly confident of completing a league and championship double when they face Enniskillen Gaels this weekend. It’s been a rapid rise for the Belleek team – they won last year’s Intermediate title, won this year’s Division One […]

Kelm relishing playing in first senior final

By Katrina Brennan IT’S six years since Erne Gaels last featured in the Fermanagh senior final and on that first Sunday in October 2016, a young Ultán Kelm stood behind the goals, well for the first half anyway, before a steward moved him and his friends on. “The three of us (Ben McCann and Gareth Deery) were […]
