#OnThisDay 1994 – Ulster U21 Football Champions

1st May 1994

Fermanagh win the U21 Ulster Football Championship for only the third time, defeating Donegal, Tyrone and Derry to take home the Irish News Cup. The team was managed by Jim Carty and captained by John Hanna.

Fermanagh had a single point to spare over Donegal in the First Round (0-11 to 1-07) played in Irvinestown and had a similar margin over Tyrone (1-08 to 0-10) in the Semi Final in Clogher.

The final, played in Omagh, was a little bit more comfortable as the side managed to beat Derry by 2-08 to 0-08.

The team that brought the silverware back to Fermanagh was Dermot Smyth, Tony Leonard, Paddy McGuinness, Neil Cox, Ciaran Gallagher, Tony Collins, Pearse Collins, John Hanna, Martin Greene, Shane King, Raymond Gallagher, Oisin Quinn, Kevin Cassidy, Mark O’Donnell and Brian Maguire. Sub: Ciaran Woods.

Following the final, Jim Carty made a plea to the employers of the county to try and ensure all the players found employment within the county as the All Ireland Semi Final against Mayo was not due to be played until much later in the Summer (August).
