Replying To Scenicparish:  "Im sure Rory felt undermined when the Chairman had to go into the dressing room at half time to rally the troops......not the smartest thing to do???"
Rory is not good enough - that's pretty clear - he's had 2 years of failure trying to break glenties/fintown down and came to the table with nothing new.

Replying To veterngaa:  "Because I love GAA. I'm lucky to live abroad and work here and the biggest part of life I miss is gaa games. I would watch any game due to my love of the game. When I lived in Monaghan I went to club games in all counties. I have GAA Go and use clubber TV.

Last weekend I watched 3 games on GAA go plus Ardee st Mary's v kilmacud on clubber tv. I watched Castleblayney v st eunans on Ulster gaa tv which was a great game of hurling. I also watched arva v skea on Saturday and blackhill v Fintona on Monday as it was not live…

Who do you think you are questioning me?


I watched the game as I read many news reports about the game. There's nothing better than spending an hour watching a game, seeing different players, systems. You my friend have shown everyone here that you dont belong in the association. You hatred to other people here and arrogance that you cant understand why I would watch a game with 2 clubs I dont know .."
Look don't give him airtime - he's a bluffer which most have seen through ages ago.

Don't feel the need to explain yourself to someone like him. Maybe he'll get the bus out of Leitir some day and broaden his horizons.

Replying To tickets:  "Are Eunans the most decorated club in Donegal? Last I checked it was 15-15 with Gweedore?

And the Leslie affair doesn't count"
Yes 100% we are. I said successful club and not senior team.

Boardroom boys aside we are top of the senior champ pile.
Won multiple senior reserve and junior championships.

Dominated u21 championship and right down to underage level.

Winning hurling championships and done it all in the past in the ladies game including 5 ulsters..

And most successful and dominant club in the county providing all games fir our community

You watched the game ok that's fine. But to report back saying it was totally na rossa fault is totally unacceptable. You call yourself a gaa man we can all do that. You never mentioned how the referee performed how na rossa s two best young players were constantly fouled.

Sure why wouldn't eunans be the most successful, biggest population by a mile and they recruit from all over the country and the country

Would you stop your spoofing, half the county has seen the video at this stage, na Rossa were lucky not to have more men sent off against lisnaskea and Declan let himself down badly

your too modest, not just your community..........players from the communities of Newtowncunningham, Falcarragh, Drumcliffe Rosses Point, Tubbercurry, Westmeath, Derry to name a few..........its been much more than a letterkenny community effort to get eunan's to their lofty position!

Most successful with the least supporters.
Look at your neighbors Glenswilly for a small area in terms of amenities they would out number the support for St.Eunans 2x/3x and tbh I would start looking over your shoulder as Glenswilly are coming for sure at all ages.

Good luck to Naomh Conaill tomorrow. Ulster Semi Finals don't come around all that often. Hopefully yas can get over the line.

Success for Gaa teams shouldn't be measured in how many trophies they win. Success for a lot of clubs is keeping the show on the road every year, managing to field teams in rural areas when times are hard and emigration has ripped the heart out of communities. Success is having a club that is at the heart of the community. Most clubs know at the start of a season that they won't win anything but they still keep going because of a love for the games and a pride in their parish. If it was all about winning cups and championships we'd only have a handful of clubs in every county. Anyone measuring success in terms of cups and championships hasn't a clue what the gaa is all about.

A brave effort by Glenties but came up short in the end. Hard to win a game of that intensity with only one sub. Strange they didn't take on a few more, they must be saving the 21s for Ballyshannon tomorrow.

The fresh legs certainly helped Glen.

Good contest, NC were unlucky not to bring it to extra time I thought, they done well but both sides missed a lot of chances but there were some brilliant scores in it too.
I thought the penalty was a bit soft, unusual to see a ref give a pen like that just on his umpires say so, he wasn't giving it himself.
Should be a another good contest tomorrow in the other semi final.

Great to be involved in battles like this evening, even though we were in the wrong side of the result. Proud of the team, left everything on the field. I think nerves got the better of us in the first 20 minutes, and that slow start ultimately cost us. We had them rattled, but they probably just deserved the win. Ultimately we missed a real scoring forward in mcgettigan, but that is life.
Good season and enjoyable game. Well done Naomh Conail, proud to be from the club.
Now let's hope Donegal show the same grit and passion and start competing again against the big teams.
We are well capable of mixing it with the best.
