It goes without saying that hurling is an incredibly difficult sport to master, and whoever is awarded our big individual prize of Hurler of the Year in association with Ulster GAA, will be thoroughly deserving of the plaudits. Last year’s winner was Dunloy’s Ryan Elliott, the first ever time a goalkeeper has got his hands […]

Castleblayney back in familiar territory

By Niall Gartland CASTLEBLAYNEY are bidding to stretch their lead at the top of the roll of honour list when they take on St Eunan’s in Sunday’s Ulster Junior Championship final.

I suppose the best place to start is with a disappointing result for ourselves in Gaoth Dobhair against Aodh Ruadh, Ballyshannon. Now, don’t get me wrong, when going through my picks at […]

Big two gunning for glory in Donegal

By Niall Gartland WILL this year’s Donegal Senior Championship be another two-horse race between St Eunan’s and reigning champions Naomh Conaill? They’ve played in the last two finals – St Eunan’s came out on top in 2021 while Naomh Conaill gained sweet revenge this time last year, so it’s certainly looking that way judging by precedent […]
