This referee is typically whistle happy, getting an awful lot wrong on both sides a good game all the same

Derry played ALL the football and fully deserved tbe win, they have always had great footballers in the Oak. Dublin looked big and cumbersome, physical and stiff.

Jesus Ulsterman will you give it a rest, Derry got more than they're fair share of soft frees and to say Dublin were physical and stiff is utter rubbish.
Derry deserved to win in what was a very close game with excellent footballers on both teams.

Enjoyable game and Derry were deserving winners. Great credit must go to Damian McErlain who really proving himself to be a top quality manager having now managed Derry to 3 Ulster finals winning 2 of those in 3 years and now an AI final appearance. Congrats to Tyrone on winning the U-17 title in a good day for Ulster football so far. However it was a bittersweet victory for most Donegal supporters given how the Donegal U-17 team got shafted by the minor management leaving supporters wondering what might have been.

Yeah was a tough day at the office and a real eye opener to where Ulster is at. Tyrone were the easiest winners of an Ulster title that I can remember to only be schooled by Tyrone.

Schooled isn't the word I would have used.

Well done Derry. It was a very competitive, hard fought game lit up by the exceptional skills of two players in particular - the Dublin centre-half forward and the Derry full forward.

Great win for Derry. The full back was immense, McCluskey I think. The McWilliams lads were excellent as well.
The future is bright with the calibre of player coming though for Derry
