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!

‘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.”
