It is only January, and we didn’t think we would be saying this, but the McKenna Cup is making all the GAA headlines. Preseason tournaments are usually for offering fringe players a chance to impress, and to give teams an opportunity to gel before the league.
But so far, the McKenna Cup is producing figurative drugs, sex and rock ‘n’ roll.
Last night, history was made in the Fermanagh vs St Mary’s game, as Maggie Farrelly took charge as referee.
Not to be outdone, Antrim and Queen’s served up a classic. The Saffrons ran out winners on a scoreline of 3-11 to 1-11, but things were a lot tighter until Brian ‘Bam’ Neeson got the ball in front of goal late on.
Which side of the goal would he aim for? Neither, just stick it in the middle, it doesn’t matter about the goalkeeper!
Skip ahead to 52 seconds for the goal.
