Replying To Lockjaw:  "The posts denigrating Fermanagh's achievements are childish & insulting to the many great Gaels operating in that county. They admirably get on with the cards they're dealt & every so often the right group of players come along, with good management (e.g. 2004 & 2009) & many a so called bigger county receives a bloody nose from the Erne men."
Lockjaw, they're mostly wind ups, but if you read the first post from Turniphead you'll see why they get stick.

Replying To KeshGFC:  "anyway if yiz can take a break from the Fermanagh bashing and looking back at the 50s and 60s for previous glory days for some counties, you might tell me when the draw is made for Mckenna cup??

Its clear counties have voted for it instead of bothering with arranging challenge games as thats all it is and really is all its ever been in the modern era. Depends how early teams start training heavily too as to how they do
Fermanagh will always need the stars to align perfectly to ever get silverware, but we continually punch way above our weight and I'll settle for that and recent regular shocks against arrogant neighbours keeps me ticking over in the winter months."
I'd love to see Fermanagh win an Ulster but it's very hard to see that happening, though I suppose if you got a great crop of players coming through at the right time, with good management and a bit of luck on the day it could happen, where there's life there's hope.

Replying To RHF:  "Monaghan must be aiming for the All Ireland with Buckley and Sheedy on board.
