Savage stuff! I could only watch it on Northern Sound so my knowledge of what may have happened in the actual game is limited but it sounds like we started like a train, ran out of ideas a bit but rallied well at half time and eventually made our supremacy count on the scoreboard. Reigning Ulster minor and U21 champions puts a very positive shine on what has at times been a very bleak year.

Massive congratultions to all involved and well done, I'm like a pig in shit right now.

Absolutely delighted. Congrats and Well Done to all involved. Brilliant team display built on superb defensive performances from Clarke, Sankey,Brady and Conor and Gerard Smith. If these lads had folded after half time it was game over but they battled for everything and eventually we turned the screw.
Changes made worked very well and O Donnell in particular is some impact sub to be able to bring on.
Galway up next and no reason why this team should fear anybody.

We dont want to blow this team up, keep them down to earth and keep the pressure off them, and they will beat Galway

I think that alot of it is down to the managers that the county board have appointed.  Things have gone down hill since Eamon Coleman was in charge.  Player attitude is a big problem also with lads drinking and acting the clown.

McElkennon was appointed as manger where he should have been training the team and cassidy manager.

Keoghan came then and had no experience at this level and apparently some players would not play for him (Cavan Gaels but not many have bothered since anyway)  and some off his antics would not have shown disipline to the players who were there.

Tom Carr arrived then via a recruitment agency and nothing improved.

Current management wont improve things either and i hope that Hyland wont get the job on his own after Andrews goes.

Yeah i agree 100% with that but i also think that wrong people have been in charge but in saying that not many would have wanted to take them over either.

I know Donal was minor manager back in 2005 and will be credited with some of the praises sung by people with redard to this years minor win. We have the Gaels too the kinpins of minor football. congrats to all involved and we thank you Donal for starting this minor revival back in 2005
