This afternoon’s Ulster SFC quarter-final between Donegal and Fermanagh generated plenty of Twitter commentary – here’s a selection of tweets on the game.
Fermanagh attempted to frustrate Donegal and did so during long spells, but Donegal’s attack proved ultimately too strong.
Good win for Donegal. Had the makings of a pothole in the road, that one.— Kieran Cunningham (@KCsixtyseven) May 26, 2019
Not a great pic – but Donegal alert and ready to attack from the Fermanagh kickout. Won about 25% of Fermanagh’s and scored, I think, 0-04 from them. pic.twitter.com/ohbNsMEdLc— Niall McCauley (@Nially1988) May 26, 2019
Tyrone Vs Donegal it is…Fermanagh resistance held up for a while, once Donegal got three up systems like Fermanagh malfunction. No plan B and beat with minimum fuss in the end. #Ulster2019— Odhran Crumley (@odhranc14) May 26, 2019
I have seen some drab soccer games in my time but today’s Fermanagh v Donegal game trumps most of them.— Gerard Cassidy (@gerardcassidy) May 26, 2019
Fermanagh hanging in there!! There management and players deserve massive credit!! Beat Monaghan and still in it with 5 to go vs Donegal!! Set up brilliantly by Rory etc and punching above their weight!!— CJ MCGOURTY (@ConorUlster) May 26, 2019
Nice to see Leo McCloone and Frank McGlynn play their part in the win. 2 players former Donegal Manager Rory Gallagher made complete Mugs out of in his time in charge 👍💪— Sean Paul Doherty (@seanosnothing) May 26, 2019
I didn’t mind the match. Gallagher was always going to line up like that to give Fermanagh the best chance of winning.
Paddy McBrearty is a class act. Great to see him back.
Barry Mulrone is some operator too. Absolute horse 🐎 #FERMvDON— Micky Quinn (@MickyQuinnDJ) May 26, 2019
Incredible to think that, at 25, Patrick McBrearty is playing in his ninth Championship.— Kieran Cunningham (@KCsixtyseven) May 26, 2019
Michael Murphy evergreen. Some footballer— 🇮🇪 (@Odietheslammer) May 26, 2019
Job done by Donegal. Great to see Paddy McBrearty back. Donegal v Tyrone should be tasty.— Bernard O’Toole (@BernardOToole) May 26, 2019
