‘We’ll prepare for Dublin like we do any other team’

Maybe we do the Dublin players a disservice, but it is hard to see Bernard Brogan sending out a message to his team-mates wondering who fancies a hot chocolate in Bewleys of a Wednesday afternoon.

Opinion - Marty McGrath - Now that Ed has warmed up Croker, let Fermanagh rock on the big stage

After the match on Saturday, I fast tracked my way to Dublin for a date with Ed Sheeran at Croke Park. Running late, we hopped into a taxi and as we made our way across the city, the taxi man asked where we were from and with great satisfaction we informed him, “Fermanagh”. “Down checking out the pitch for next week?” he quipped. It was a proud moment; our county is heading back to Croker, back in the headlines with the big boys!

We are Fermanagh and that’s all we need

We are Fermanagh. I don’t particularly know what being Fermanagh means but I do know I like it.

‘This is the draw both sides would have wanted’ admits midfielder O’Callaghan

For Enniskillen Gaels man Richard O’Callaghan Sunday’s victory and the emotions at the final whistle were the best he has experienced as a footballer. When asked to sum up how he felt he understandably found it difficult; “It’s hard to put your finger on it. It was just all a bit mental. The final whistle went and I just grabbed the first person I saw, I think it was Eoin (Donnelly). Then all the fans came on. It was pretty unbelievable and very special. Certainly it is something that I have never experienced before on the football field.”

‘There’s nothing like championship matches to bring you on’ - McCusker

Paul McCusker may be something of a veteran in this Fermanagh team but he has a spring in his step like a player enjoying his second or third season with the county. Thats what playing at least four championship games in a season does to you.

Performance required if we are to progress says Donnelly

Fermanagh may have lost their Ulster semi-final to Monaghan but there was plenty of positives to take out of the performance, not least the display of captain Eoin Donnelly who was immense at midfield over the course of the 70 minutes as he helped Fermanagh hold sway in that sector.

McGurn hoping Saffrons can build on Laois win

Fermanagh native and Antrim trainer, Mickey McGurn, is as straightforward as ever when giving his thoughts on the recent Ulster championship clash between the two counties. The teams met on the last day of May with Fermanagh winning through but McGurn did not care too much for the quality of football and hopes that when the teams meet in the All Ireland qualifiers on Sunday that the fare is better.

2015 could still be a breakthrough year for this team

You only improve by playing teams who are better than you. It is a harsh and uncomfortable truth. Fermanagh found that out on Sunday but they have now been afforded the opportunity to improve. Because let us be painfully clear Monaghan are a better side than Fermanagh, at present. Those last two words are important. At present. There is no reason to think that we cannot close and bridge that gap in the coming years.

Monaghan did not perform because Fermanagh did not let them

Those who tuned in to hear the score on Sunday evening would have been forgiven for thinking that Fermanagh were totally outplayed. The ten point win certainly flattered Monaghan and was not a true reflection on how this game panned out.
