Clean bill of health for Glen

By Michael McMullan GLEN can report a clean bill of health ahead of this weekend’s Ulster semi-final showdown with Naomh Conaill. For all the Watties’ underage adventures in Ulster, Saturday’s clash at O’Neill’s Healy Park will be their first-ever meeting with the Glenties side. “Thankfully we came out (from the Cargin game) and there are […]

KEVIN CASSIDY: Ulster’s treasure hunt

THE semi-finals of the Ulster Club Championship take place this weekend and what a set of pairings we have in store.

KEVIN CASSIDY: Ulster club is the gift that keeps on giving

THE second weekend of Ulster Club action took place last weekend and yet again the competition came up trumps. I’ve said on many occasions that this is the best competition in the GAA calendar at the minute and, based on last weekend’s evidence, who would argue with me?

KEVIN CASSIDY: One big weekend

Kilcoo flexed their muscles on Sunday with a comprehensive win over Fermanagh kingpins Derrygonnelly to set up a mouth-watering clash with Scotstown this weekend.

KEVIN CASSIDY: Trillick’s laser-like focus paid off

Trillick upset the applecart last weekend, meaning at the Tyrone Senior Football Championship remains the hardest club championship in the land to retain. Heading into that game, all the talk was about Errigal Ciaran and how they would do back-to-back in Tyrone this year, something that hasn’t been done in close to 20 years. Great […]

KEVIN CASSIDY: Long live the club

IT wasn’t to be for our young guns in Gaoth Dobhair as they went down to a well-oiled Glenties machine in last Sunday’s Donegal county final. Going into the game, we knew Naomh Conaill were hot favourites but we thought we might be able to make a contest out of it. Although Sunday’s result was […]
