i was down at a tournament in queens recently and i watched 4 games which were all of high standard. st pats downpatrick were beat in the final by a strong donegal outfit. half back magee performed very well as did corner back greene. the standard of football was very high with all teams performing well. stand out man byrne - keeper for downpatrick was man of the match on the day. pulling off 5 top class saves to reduce the margin of defeat in the final. rathmore were unlucky to be put out, as they had strong team out, ballymena coming third drawing with downpatrick in the quarter final of the tournament.
Yes, I believe the Red High have a strong team again this year. They must be among the tournament favourites though that Donegal team have a county senior playing for them, perhaps they may be too strong?
