Derry manager winding up Donegal?

I realise I am stretching good faith with my Derry supporting colleague Aaron, but is Eamon Coleman trying to wind the Donegal players up before Sunday’s clash with Armagh.

    I fancy Armagh for the three-in-a-row tomorrow, Mick. Hopefully, Tyrone can overcome a Laois side which will be aiming to make amends for their humiliating defeat at the hands of the Dubs later today.

    But, of course, as an Antrim man, the REAL action will be in the Minor final tomorrow, when Antrim will attempt to win an Ulster title and inject some fresh optimism into the football scene in the county.

    Come on the Saffrons!

    Donegal or Armagh as Ulster champs, what a choice..


    To hell with those plonkers. Is Mick O’Dwyer the most amazing player and ocach ever to emanate from the GAA? Excelled as a forward and as a back, managed Ireland’s greatest ever team (who were treated like royalty in Ulster GAA’s dark days) and then Laois and Kildare. The man walks on water even without the 4 in a row resources.

    No airport for Mickey Harte. Only a dodgy degree from Queens.

    I’m with you on the Minor final Chris. I remember the senior side at Casement in the 60s when they had a good team. But Donegal is alwasy good for a thrill.

    A team of fearless, thoroughly committed and (largely) unknown Donegal men managed by a Tyrone man who suffers no nonsense should give Armagh a good run for their money.

    You were at the Derry game Aaron, what do you reckon?

  • Aaron_Scullion

    I’m no expert, but reckon it could be a cracking game. Donegal were exhilaring to watch against Derry, but Armagh are very resilient.. very hard to call.

  • Mick Fealty

    1st point to Donegal. Oisin McConville follows it up for Armagh, and breaks the Ulster record for highest score.

    Folks seem to have missed this intriguing GAA story:

    [i]The GAA has distanced itself from a jersey to commemorate the Hunger Strikers.

    Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams and several Antrim county GAA players yesterday (Friday) unveiled a jersey to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the hunger strike.[/i]

    Hard luck Mick.. the Armagh juggernaut rolls on
