Excitement is growing at Holy Trinity PS in Enniskillen ahead of this Sunday’s Senior Football Championship final when Derrygonnelly Harps will take on Enniskillen Gaels at Brewster Park.

Enniskillen Gaels Manager John Reihill is the Vice-Principal at the school, and while it is decked out in blue and yellow in support for the team, there are a number of pupils at the school who will be hoping that it is the side in yellow and purple who will have the bragging rights on Monday morning.

Myah Greene, Aine Rice and brothers Cormac and Daithi King turned out in the Derrygonnelly colours to leave Mr. Reihill in no doubt who they will be cheering on at Brewster Park on Sunday.

In no doubt

Myah, whose dad, Martin, is a former Harps player and Manager, and whose uncle, Paul, is part of the current Derrygonnelly management, is in no doubt who will win.

“I think Derrygonnelly will win because they are better. I think they will win by two points,” said Myah, whose favourite player is Declan Cassidy.

Aine, who hopes to “rub it in to Mr. Reihill on Monday”, also believes that Derrygonnelly will be two-point winners.

“They are a good team who work together and they will win by two points,” she reasoned.

However, Poppy Rogers, whose favourite player is Eoin Beacom, believes that it will be Enniskillen’s day on Sunday.

“I think Gaels will win the match because they are a strong team and work well together as a team,” she said.

Megan Mullaly also thinks that the Gaels will win, although it may need a bit of luck.

“I think Enniskillen Gaels will win the New York Cup on Sunday because they have the home advantage and it’s a massive opportunity for the Gaels, so they will work for it.

“I think the Gaels will win by two or three points from a lucky goal at the end.”

However, brothers Cormac and Daithi King are firmly backing the Harps to come through and lift the cup.

“The Harps will win by five points,” said a confident Cormac. “They are the best team.”

And Daithi, who says his favourite players are his big cousin, Oisin Smyth, and Michael Jones, also felt it would be a comfortable day for Derrygonnelly.

“The Harps are much better than the Gaels and I think they will win by four points,” he declared.

But, Oisin Gunn, whose favorite player is Gaels Captain Richie O’Callaghan, believes it will be the team in yellow and blue who win with a late goal: “I think it will be a very tight game, but I think the Gaels will get a goal at the very end and win by a point.”
