Reporters from Donegal were refused entry to Fermanagh's pre-Ulster final press event on Tuesday.

Erneside boss Rory Gallagher - formerly Donegal manager and part of the backroom team in 2012 - was fielding questions in The Westville Hotel, Enniskillen yesterday alongside Ryan McCluskey and Eoin Donnelly - but Fermanagh County Board reportedly refused entry to any journalists who were reporting for Donegal-based publications.

Tension is mounting as the neighbouring counties prepare to meet in an Ulster final for the first time on Sunday, June 24th. According to Donegal Now, Fermanagh officials made it very clear that anyone representing Donegal media were not welcome at the media event, where, ironically, Gallagher played down his own Donegal connections.
