St Stephens day involves a fair bit of punting, between horses and football probably lose a fortune but sure its Christmas, and a few scoops!!

Boxing day is when RTE features  working class role models with working class accents. Very rare

Very interesting comments, not about the game but about the name of the day! It's known everywhere in the Nort as Boxing Day and everywhere in the South as Stephens Day, which I have to say I prefer. Anyway, back to today's game, Ballinascreen 2-5 Rossa 0-8.

Disappointed for our lads who gave their all but just came up a bit short.

Enniskillen have a few very fine footballers and with Screen dominating possession for most of the match they were very economical with their chances and I thought their no. 14 was the best player on the pitch.

We just didnít have that cutting edge to convert the possession and had to work twice as hard as Enniskillen for our scores but really proud of the lad if youíd offered is the County title at the start of the year weíd have bitten your hand off so it was a great campaign!! Well done lads and congrats to Enniskillen.
