Game Confirmed for Sunday 25th June at 6.30pm in Athletic Grounds.

Very strange time for a match,certainly wont help attract a crowd,other match involving Cavan/Monaghan loser is same down the country.


Regarding outcome gaalltheway,Armagh with home advantage are favourites,if Fermanagh have few players back and 1)05 fit then should be a great battle

Ah what a great draw! Fermanagh will definitely feel a bit confident going into the game. Let's hope for at least quarter-final position.

2005 and 2008 both had 2 draws in there.

How many players on the 2010 team are still on both sides never mind the 2002 one.

Ryan McCluskey was there for all the championship meetings with Armagh to the best of my knowledge. It's a pity that Chris O'Brien and John Woods aren't on the team today.
We played Ederney last night and beat them too! I can confirm that Decky McCusker is back on the team therefore I think he will be fielding for Fermanagh against Armagh which should help.

Relegated to Division 3 and booted out of the Ulster championship in the preliminary round by a nine-point defeat to Monaghan isn't how Fermanagh boss Pete McGrath will have envisioned 2017 going thus far, so if it's doomsday in the Armagh game on Sunday week, then the Co Down man should pack his bag and go for the greater good of the Fermanagh team!

Going by club matches recently Ruairi Corrigan back playing along with Decky McCusker too add few more options to the team from Monaghan game.

I expect it to be a hard fought Ulster Championship style battle,especially as the its likely to be the last game for the manager of the losing team on Sunday.


Low key build up,expectations are low,im sure Armagh as always will have strong support,hope Fermanagh people try and get to Athletic grounds and cheer the team on. Hope the evening throw in time doesnt stop people from going,as in close game the crowd can be the difference

Is this match on at all? I'm minded to bring a carload from Dublin and trying to confirm details of location & parking ( I've never been north of Keady) I can't find anything on Fer or Arm sites. And why on earth was it fixed for 18:30 on a Sunday? Will there be extra time? So much for games promotion!

Match is definitely on Deep South,game is throwing in at 6.30pm due to All Ireland feile which concludes today.

After Downs performance last night, Armagh will go in as favourites for this evenings game. Lets hope Fermanagh can raise it and get a team performance, last nights game in Athletic Grounds showed that hunger is key to any success.
