The timeline of Glen’s decision to lodge appeal


By Michael McMullan THE fallout from Sunday’s All-Ireland Club final continues after Glen filed an objection to the GAA’s CCCC over their defeat to Kilmacud Crokes. In a statement, sent to Gaelic Life on Tuesday night, Glen confirmed they lodged their objection at 11pm, ahead of the Wednesday’s 3.30pm deadline. “Watty Graham’s GAC will lodge […]


Golden opportunity for Glen


All-Ireland Club SFC Final Glen v Kilmacud Crokes Sunday, Croke Park, 3.30pm By Niall Gartland IN a way, match previews are an exercise in futility. I mean, what sooth-sayer would have predicted that Kilcoo goalkeeper Niall Kane would have scored a goal from a ’45’ in last year’s All-Ireland final. Advertisement Or that the game […]


Sentiment doesn’t come into it – O’Rourke


By Niall Gartland HE was always one of the most celebrated and respected, and indeed most-liked, managers in the game but Malachy O’Rourke’s stock has risen even further since assuming the reins at the Watty Graham’s in 2020. A quick trawl through his Wikipedia page shows that his days as a successful manager long pre-date […]


Ace forward Tallon hoping to seize Glen’s golden opportunity


By Niall Gartland JUST 14 months ago, Glen won their first ever senior championship in Derry. Now they’re on the precipice of All-Ireland glory, so it’s been one hell of a ride for the team and their supporters.

Turkey, joy and silver was the diet of choice after landing a first ever Ulster Senior title. There was also the double boost of an All-Ireland series to look forward to […]


Glen not impacted by outside pressures – Warnock


By Shaun Casey FROM the outside, it always seemed like it was just a matter of when Glen would be crowned Ulster champions rather than if, even when they came up against the reigning All-Ireland champions. Their trail of Ulster minor winning teams, the return of towering midfielder Conor Glass from Australia and the appointment […]


Gerard O’Kane – The Green and Gold express


IF at first you don’t succeed, try again. That is what both Glen and Dunloy would have felt in the last 10 days. All I can say to both is fair play. Both don the green and gold and are within 15 mile from my home-place Glenullin, albeit Dunloy is just across the border in […]


Redemption for Connlan Bradley with key final moments


By Michael McMullan IF ever there was a definition of redemption, the 49th minute of Sunday’s Ulster Club final ticks that box. Aaron Branagan had cut Glen’s lead to a single point and Kilcoo’s never say die attitude was in full flow when Ryan Johnston’s inch-perfect dinked pass found Ceilum Doherty in space behind Ethan […]
