Ballinagh were not as good as first reported. Roslea minus the Quigleys equals the like of Derrygonnelly. The one thing comes out of this that indiscipline pays and red cards are meaningless. I think the Ulster council should investigate.

Its about time everybody stopped bickering about whats happened. Get behind the Roslea lads who are representing the county and who did very well today.

Well done Roslea on a great result. Excellent first half performance. Almost let it slip in the second. Good luck in the semi. Hopefully they can overcome the Michael Murphy led Glenswilly. It will be interesting to see the battle of the full forwards.
And to the haters well.....Haters don't really hate you, they hate themselves; because you're a reflection of what they wish to be.

Well said Nontheism.

Roslea really went to sleep in that 2nd half. They looked by far the better side in the 1st. Sean quigley had a great game. His last point in the 1st half was unbelievable. James Sherry had another awesome game. His catch from the last kick out was vital. Niall Cosgrove was very good as well. Thought the Roslea defense were run a bit ragged at times. Balinagh had some very good forwards.

Anyone know what the Roslea sending off was for? Didn't see it.

Congratulations to Roslea on their win yesterday. They will definately learn from nearly letting it slip and should be more focused against Glenswilly. Think if Roslea can win the midfield battle the next day out it should force Glenswilly to take Murphy away from the full forward line and out around the middle which can only bode well for the Fermanagh champions.

Glenswilly have two county men in midfield and Gallagher and Bonner. Roslea will need big preformances to come out on top there.

Anyone at the Enniskillen game yesterday be able to fill us in on what went so wrong for the Gales?

Ultan. I agree about Glenswilly midfield but Roslea have to believe that they can compete and win. Obviously its a big task to compete directly man for man in midfield but if Roslea can fill bodies in that area and frustrate Glenswilly then they will have a chance. Its ugly football and not for the purest but Donegal don't mind winning ugly!!

...as for Enniskillen...who knows?? 1-1 from play and 0-2 from frees, i think that tells a lot. Outclassed i'd say.

That is true and Roslea do have a strong midfield themselves in Sherry and Cosgrove. Alot could depend on who comes out on top there.

Glenswilly (Donegal) v Roslea Shamrocks GFC

I think Roslea will have no mission in a semi final since that they are facing a Glenswilly side led by all star, Michael Murphy who I see leading his club to an Ulster final. The Quigleys will be no match for the Donegal talent.

Its going to be a serious ask. Roslea are at 5-1 to win this game in some places. Glenswilly play much the same as Roslea with a very strong midfield and a lethal foward line. Against St Galls they had just 2 wides. Its probably not possible to stop Murphy. There will be lots of long balls going directly in to him and McFadden as well as into the Quigleys for Roslea. Whoever can stop good ball going into the inside men will most likely win this. The Neil Gallagher James Sherry battle could decide this. Its going to be tough but Roslea have an opportunity here if they could do it would be great for Fermanagh football as a whole.

I see that Glenswilly are the betting favourites so I'll put a few bob on them.

Ulster club SFC: Kelly double sinks Roslea!

Glenswilly (Donegal) 3-9
Roslea Shamrocks (Fermanagh) 2-8

Colin Kelly scored a brace of goals and Michael Murphy fisted another as Glenswilly trumped a wasteful Roslea at Healy Park to qualify for their first Ulster club SFC final.

Kelly gave the Donegal kingpins the perfect start when his shot had just enough power to beat Roslea goalkeeper Sean Boyle for the opening goal in the second minute. Donegal skipper Murphy raised a second green flag to help Glenswilly to a 2-4 to 0-2 lead after 20 minutes.

Seamus Quigley replied with his third and fourth points, while James McMahon added another to narrow the gap further. But Murphy's late point gave Glenswilly a six-point cushion, 2-5 to 0-5, at the break.

Peter McGinnity's charges dominated the third quarter, when Glenswilly took their foot off the petal but were undermined by some poor finishing. Kevin Cosgrove and Peter Lynch managed points before Kelly flicked Murphy's free to the net in the 42nd minute to put Glenswilly back in the driving seat.

Seamus Quigley gave Roslea hope when he netted from the penalty spot after Niall Cosgrove had been taken down by Joe Gibbons. Roslea's Conor Mulligan scored a second fluky goal late on that somehow landed in the net, but three unanswered points from Gibbons, Caolan Kelly and Gary McFadden saw Glenswilly through to a final date with Ballinderry in two weeks' time.

If Glenswilly are to become Ulster Club Senior Champions then they need to perform better than today.

Sloppy goals cost Roslea yesterday. After going 8 points down with about 15 gone it was a mountain to climb. Once Roslea got going espically in the 2nd half they looked the better side. Glenswilly played like a mini Donegal crowding the centre in front of goal. They had 3 men on Quigley at times near impossible for him to get into the match. Niall Cassidy did a great job on Murphy kept him very quiet. Overall a good performance after a slow start, bit more composure towards the end they could have taken it despite the bad start.

Thats it for this year for all the Fermanagh teams now. 2014 should be an interesting one looking forward to it already.
