Brookeborough native and former Fermanagh player and trainer Kieran Donnelly will be hoping to lead Scotstown to Ulster glory this Sunday when they face Donegal champions Gaoth Dobhair in the provincial final in Omagh.

The Monaghan champions saw off Derrygonnelly in the preliminary round and since then have defeated Burren and Coleraine to book their spot in the decider although Donnelly feels that his side will have to raise their game to overcome the challenge of Gaoth Dobhair.

"It has been a great campaign to date. We have had a lot of competitive games against quality teams and it is great to be involved in it but we are aware this Sunday that we have a massive task against a Gaoth Dobhair who beat a strong Crossmaglen team and are an exceptional team. We had the advantage of watching them after our own semi-final and we know that we will have to up our performance to another level but it is a challenge we are looking forward to," said Donnelly.

The Scotstown boss knows that the Donegal side will pose plenty of questions that his side will have to answer if they are to come away with the victory on Sunday.

"They will pose different problems in different areas than we have faced. They are a very mobile team all round the pitch and combine that with size. I would also say that they have experience throughout, most of their players would have played county at some level and they have a good blend. "

And Donnelly acknowledges that his side need to be aware of the good starts that Gaoth Dobhair have made in their games to date.

"In all their championship games they have made a really strong start. In the Cargin game they were up by 11 points and people will tell you that even in the Cross game the game was over at half time. That is their strength, they come out with all guns blazing and teams find them very hard to stop."

However, Scotstown have plenty of quality of their own and Donnelly feels that should make for a good showpiece final.

"We have quality as well. Obviously, we have the county men and we look to them and the likes of young Frank Maguire has stepped up also and given us an added dimension to our team. I think it will be a final with teams looking to play attractive football so it should be a good one for spectators," he added.

Scotstown have a big tradition in the Ulster Club having won the competition on four occasions in the 70s and 80s but Donnelly's says that the current group are focussed on making history of their own.

"In the 70s and 80s they were competing and winning in Ulster but the current players don't really focus on that. They are young and to me they have created their own history in the four in a row and that's all they are interested in. We have just gone from game to game and keep looking to the next challenge and that next challenge is now Gaoth Dobhair," he concluded.
