As for your "Lazarus has arisen from the dead" comment was in response to posts on some other thread where you let others believe you were no longer with us in this world - not exactly a very nice thing to do", im for once lost for words as not sure where you got that from and I certainly would never post anythingg like that online!!

Anyway back to more pressing matters, nice to see Rosleas fine new pitch hosting the game with Derry, good to see clubs around county getting opportunity to highlight the effort put in to provide top facilities.

Fingers crossed its a good weekend for Fermanagh GAA with Derrygonnelly in big final Sunday, best of luck to them!

I agree macca it's good to see Roslea getting the opportunity to showcase at what is considered the best club owned facilities with the hosting of the intercounty Dr McKenna Cup game between Fermanagh and Derry on Saturday at 1.30pm. In respect of a favourable outcome for ourselves I wouldn't be too optimistic as our county team weren't able to make any significant impact against what I would term Monaghan's night shift term of youngsters and don't think the Derrygonnelly absentees would have made any great difference to the outcomes.
On Sunday next at the Armagh county grounds at 3.45pm we'll see if the Derrygonnelly team is worthy or not of an Ulster club championship title. They have the capability but will they defeat Kilcoo? It's 50/50 I think.
Bye the way macca, I was glad to read of your resurrection as your views although strange at times does hep to generate discussion, whether negative or otherwise.

Harps will have now to prove if they are as really good as being said but I would have my doubts. On another story and I see the former Derrylin management have gone to manage a division 3 club who are at junior championship level. A strange move indeed. They must think Derrylin are going no where in div 1. However, there is no tears from the county minors about the departure of their unsuccessful brief boss. Now to the McKenna game with Derry I hope for a better performance particular in the backs and the goalkeeping.

Roslea facilities are absolutely fantastic for a Fermanagh club side and it's good to see some gate fee's for county games going to the clubs, I would have to argue that the facilities down in Ederney may edge them out

Shamrock, yes Ederny have great facilities too but Roslea are entirely club owned unlike Ederney's where part of which is the community association there, from what I have heard. In any either case it is is great to have them available.

We need more clubs like Roslea, Ederney and Harps upgrading their facilities. Tempo has done a great job with their new pitch. It was mentioned earlier in the thread, but every club must have its gym facilities for our county team to compete.

Funding and money are tough to get. Every club has its difficulties.

Whether Derrygonnelly win or lose at the weekend I think it proves that Fermanagh club football isn't as bad as people think. This is a common thread that comes from people not only from outside our county but within. I would fancy the top 3/4 clubs in Fermanagh to put it up against any club team in Ulster on their day.

As much as I hate the sight of Derrygonnelly winning you have to respect what they have done this past 6/7 years... if they win on Sunday fair play to them. They have earned their respect across Ulster.

And as another poster put in this thread earlier... if you don't think the addition of the two mcgullians, three jones and potentially some other Derrygonnelly players will boost the county set and help us compete against the likes of Monaghan up you may follow a different sport! Clueless!

You seriously have to laugh at some of the posters on here... actually is hilarious how out of touch some are.

I concur with your thinking and believe too much space is given to macca, his views and his ongoing capers rather than concentrating on football. I wish the county team, D'gonnelly all the best at the weekend. I also wish Derrylin who have been affected by abrupt management departure a new beginning in there new league division one journey.

Agreed, I am definitely not a Derrygonnelly fan. Saying that I wish them all the best as I want nothing but respect for Fermanagh and to show the rest of Ulster Fermanagh football can be as strong as any other county.

macca999 you said last week --------- I think keeper very slow to get the kickouts going, while in the second half we couldn't buy ball from own kickout for 15 minutes, not solely GK responsibility but certainly a factor and will cost matches going forward if not sharper. macca999 (Fermanagh) - Posts: 926 - 09/01/2022 17:51:11 ------------- Well macca999 was the goalkeeper this afternoon??? That's you over and over again blame the GK and not the 14 other team members! I thought we performed reasonably today and our 1 goal and 10pts was a respectable result to Derry 17 points. The only criticism was our defence was not robust enough but it's still early days in the season.

Best of luck to Derrygonnely tomorrow and I hope they win, it would be great for football in Fermanagh, some good games on TG4 tomorrow.

Wired2theMoon, i would stand by my comment from the Monaghan game, the keeper was faster to set-up his kick outs yesterday and the defence tried a tactic of line of 6 and 3 break each way to work short kickouts which had some success, although the amount of times players went backwards with the ball was frustrating to watch at times.
Slight impovement on last week ,good to see Brandan Horan start a game, good performances from Danny Leonard, Tiarnan Bogue and Darragh McGurn. Definitely think with him and Sean Quigley should look to utilise the mark rule more and kick ball in more often. Fermanagh seemed to have to work alot harder for scores(as always) than Derry, who broke through defence too easily at times. Silly black card in second half

Just quick point on Rory Gallagher, people make out he very negative manager, looking at Derry yesterday clear to see he isnt totally defensive as perceived by some, Derry pressed high and attacked at every opportunity , During his time with Fermanagh he played a more defensive brand of football though that was as much about the options he had and maximising as much as could to get results rather than by own choice and it was effective.

Two weeks now until huge game v Antrim which could set tone for the season, hopefully Eoin Donnelly be back then and maybe one or two others.
Is Conor Love not on the panel this year?


Best of luck to Derrygonnelly today, tough game but more than equipped to claim the title which would give Fermanagh football a much needed boost.

A poor showing for Fermanagh senior club football today when Derrygonnelly were outclassed by a clinical and sharper Kilcoo team who won by a huge margin with the result being 3-12 (21pts) to 3 pts. There is nothing more to say.

3-10 to 3 points, an awful heavy defeat, still though they done well getting to the final, hope Kilcoo can win the All Ireland club title now for Ulster.

A baffling and disappointing approach to the game from Derrygonnelly and even more disappointing that they didn't opt to push themselves further up and impose themselves on Kilcoo after conceding the first goal. They are a much better side with much better players than they showed yesterday. It's just unfortunate most of the rest of the country didn't get to see it. Congratulations to them though on their fantastic run, they should be proud of what they have done this year and over the past number of years and how they have represented Fermanagh.
On the plus side it'll be nice to get a good handful of these players into the county fold.

Sad to see Eoin Donnelly retire, great servant to Fermanagh football and will be missed alot, especially his experience in very young panel currently have.

National Football League Division 3 Round 1
Fermanagh 0-8 Antrim 1-14
A disastrous start for Fermanagh with a lot of mistakes. Antrim had the perfect start and no doubt deserved the win.
Luke Flanagan was probably best for us workwise. Declan McCusker also worked hard.
Nest up is Wicklow away and things need to improve.

Fermanagh have had many a bad performance but definitely this ranks as one of the worst.
Only one way that team is going and thats Division 4, the amount of basic errors made was unacceptable at county level, in first half alone poor passing and decision making cost potentially 2 goals and 3 points. Obviously relying on Sean Quigley to score everything, when he has off day then wont score. Played for about 3 minutes in second half,got 3 scores and to within point Antrim goal killed momentum. The majority of team then gave up which is very worrying but happens with team of young players(bar McCusker and McMahon) and there is little options to try improve the starting 15 from what is in the squad.

Kieran Donnelly has huge job on his hands,no doubt about it.


Over the years Fermanagh teams rarely can score 10 points in a game, hence dont win many with the 8/9 points tally, like dont understand how cant break that target on regular basis given the training and time put into county teams, is this a psychological thing?

macca you are very quick to say it's div 4 for Fermanagh and equate the management to that of the O'Neill era. It wasn't the best day for our team but it wasn't exactly the best day either for the Dubs but that doesn't equate to their manager being ridiculed as useless and their team dropping div. You talk of psychological issues but where is the evidence as our team are fit, committed and equipped with the best support management and backroom staff can deliver within reason? I acknowledge they some glaring errors were made but I thought their kickouts were mostly successful and indeed the backs give a good performances. I believe, like the Dubs, their will learn more from yesterday's game than if they were to bear Antrim by several points. Unlike you macca I have faith in the Donnelly management and the players and the young crop inspire me. So macca, less criticism and more encouragement in my mind would be more helpful than you scepticism.

Cinnaile, at no point did i mention the O Neill era or criticise the management, Donnelly is working with very limited resources, a young naive team and not many leaders to help them especially when games need experience.
The comparison with Dublin isnt exactly a true reflection of either teams situation after round 1 of league.
Fermanagh and Antrim always seen as lowest 2 teams in ulster,so to lose by 8 points at home to them is worrying but that is were Fermanagh county team finds itself and no quick fix as dont see any other players in the production line coming in to improve it anytime soon. I would agree that Luke Flanagan and Johnny Cassidy had good games in defence, the kickouts not so much, get ball out to defenders,then 2 passes to work the ball back to our keeper isnt going to help us get scores or quickly break defensive systems,especially when trailing by 5/6 points in games.

In terms of physicality the loss of both Cullens isnt something Fermanagh can replace in defence, teams will look to exploit this,especially likes of Westmeath and Laois who have big physical forward lines.

Not sure how Antrim player avoided a black card on Largo Ellis or how McCann didnt get second yellow card.
