I have been saying for years that Drumragh and Fintona are massively underachieving. Big numbers, good facilities, good youth, always had decent reseves.

Great to be back in a county final. 21 years is a long time. Was a tough game on Saturday but will do the team the world of good especially winning it without Shane Cleary. Couple of the younger lads have stood up which is great to see.

The quick turn around might suit us and doesn't give as much time for the nerves to build especially for the younger lads.

Have to dig that bunting out of the back of the garage now....

SS, if you have any spare green/white flegs on ye, let your club know as it'll stop them telephoning my da's house looking for one to put up on the flagpoles at Healy Park! He wants that one back after the final, win or lose!  ;D

Just as a public service, I got a few green/white** chequered flegs on ebay this time last week from these guys - ordered them on Tuesday, came in the post on Thursday, can't complain for the price.

I don't think we're even fielding a team for the Reserve JFC this year.

Won JFC and Reserve leagues in recent years, pay not attention to the Covid Year strange things happening this year

Good man Jimmy. I'm sure Fintona will be getting the colors up as well to support their neighbours!!  :D

Think Prices Lynchs have them in now anyway!!

Drumragh are under achieving at senior level IMO, they should be really in intermediate football with the numbers they have and the fact that they've been in G2 youth for a number of years now.. facilities don't necessarily provide you with a good senior team but it helps for sure..

We're only really starting to see the benefit of being out in Clanabogan recently. Things don't change in a club overnight and a lot of people have worked hard to get structures into the club that wouldn't have been there when I was growing up. Numbers are creeping up and more people want to be involved with the club which is helping with the coaching so that's having a knock on effect.
We've always had good players, but to be a consistent club you need 3-4 underage players coming up into the senior squad each year. In the past we haven't had that and older players have plugged gaps. Now we are starting to see players coming through more consistently from under age and that has freshened up the squad a lot.

I wouldn't agree with it being a free go on Sunday either. We waited 21 years to get back to a final and no guarantees of when the next one might be. As an ex manager would say, take your dinner when it's hot.

Thought it was very bad form to expect two teams to play a championship Semi-final on what could only be described as a beach on Saturday. You would hope it will have improved for the final. It wouldnt have been done before the Senior or Intermediate Semis/Finals.

You must not have been to Omagh before.

Have been plenty of times. No reason it couldnt have been left until after the final.

What's the story with Healy Park anyway?

Was there not meant to be major works done on it and that it was going to be out of commission for the next year or so?

Yeah if you lived in Spain or something. If it rains in any way that pitch is unplayable. That's why it's constantly got sand laid on it. It's actually a great pitch to play on as a result, it just might not look that great.

With no fans at minute though I suppose you are right, they could wait and see then send it to Carrickmore if it rains.

What's the odds for Sunday any bookie have them? Drumragh be favourites considering they beat Kileeshil who were favourites for the whole thing according to Shane Cleary.

If Kildress can't beat Drumragh they may give up. Massive favourites.
