Seamus O’Malley says Naomh Conaill’s reserves are playing ‘senior level football’ and they’re gunning to retain their Senior B title.
Last year, Naomi Conaill hit back from seven points down to win the club’s first ever Senior B crown, as Shane McDevitt’s goal helped spur them on.

“We feel that we’re playing senior level football and you have to be thinking that way,” O’Malley, who took the reserve job three years ago, says.
“I think if you have the players you can do it. We’re both fortunate that we have that strength in depth. That has carried us both through this year.”
Naomh Conaill’s reserves are in the curtain-raiser for their seniors, who take on Gaoth Dobhair in Sunday’s senior decider.
O’Malley says: “It’s huge to have the seniors in a final as well. We’re very fortunate in that the senior players are very supportive of the young lads. Even at training, we train together and they help each other out.”
