Seanie: We’ll learn lessons from heavy Dubs defeat

By Niall Gartland TYRONE’S National League campaign certainly ended on a sour note, but Seanie O’Donnell is confident that they’ll learn the lessons of a particularly chastening defeat to the Dubs.

Patience paying off for Farry

By Niall Gartland ALL the hard work is paying off for Omagh CBS half-back Nathan Farry, an immensely skilled footballer who hasn’t had it all his own way in this year’s campaign.

Trillick boss Gormley proud of his charges

By Niall Gartland TRILLICK boss Jody Gormley acknowledged that his players ‘died with their boots on’ after they were pipped at the post in Sunday’s drama-laden Ulster Senior Championship semi-final defeat to Scotstown.

Reinvigorated Scotstown on the cusp of final

By Shaun Casey FOR a team that has dominated the club scene in Monaghan over the past 11 years, winning eight county titles, Scotstown have failed to really make a dent on the Ulster Club Championship.
