Enniskillen Gaels go in search of an Ulster Club Final place

Ulster Club Championship Semi Final

Enniskillen Gaels v Burren (Down)

St Pauls Belfast

Sunday December 18th @ 1.30pm

 

Enniskillen Gaels are just one game away from an Ulster Club Minor Final and will go into Sunday’s eagerly awaited encounter against Burren knowing that a win will be a huge boost for the club and for Fermanagh football in general.

Last season Enniskillen made the Semi Final as well but went down to St Eunans Letterkenny on a scoreline of 4-10 to 0-8.

Burren have had a major success of late in youth competitions and last Sunday they came through a testing encounter against Antrim side Dunloy, 0-10 to 0-7.

Burren attackers Conor McCartan and Declan Murdock are big players for the Down side while plenty of the Enniskillen side will know all about Liam Kerr who was exceptional in the MacRory Cup game against St Michaels Enniskillen last season for his school, St Pauls Bessbrook.

The Enniskillen side have been hugely impressive this season, they may only have played two games to win the Fermanagh Club Championship but the 8-33 scored in just two games set them out as an extra special side.

11 of this year’s team will be available once again in 2017 at Minor level so it is anticipated this Enniskillen Gaels team could be knocking around Ulster Club football for the next number of years.

Gaels players such as Jonathan Cassidy, Eoin Beacom, Darragh Keaney (pictured) and Conall Quinn have been hugely pivotal for the County town side and it will once again be the same players that will be looked upon to put in a performance on Sunday.

Burren won the Dromore Under-16 Ulster Club Championship in 2014 and it is once again the same squad that will aim to do the double at St Pauls this year.

Enniskillen have been going exceptionally well and from all at Fermanagh GAA we wish Enniskillen Gaels the very best of luck on Sunday at St Pauls.
