Clontibret manager John McEntee is mindful of Naomh Conaill's 'winning mentality' ahead of tomorrow night's Ulster club SFC semi-final in Omagh.

The Glenties men displayed an incredible never-say-die attitude to come through their three-match saga with reigning provincial champions Gaoth Dobhair in the Donegal SFC final before beating Cavan champions Castlerahan, just four days after they finally got their hands on the Dr Maguire Cup.

"The three matches which Naomh Conaill played against Gaoth Dobhair before they eventually won the Donegal title and the way they went out four days afterwards and beat Castlerahan in their Ulster quarter-final shows the calibre of the team they are," the former Armagh star said in the Belfast Telegraph.

"They have experience in their side, just like we have, and they have acquired a winning mentality.

"I think it's important that we focus on Naomh Conaill as a team and not just earmark some of their individual players. When you get to this stage of the Ulster championship, you know that you are going to come up against quality opposition and, in my view, we will be meeting a very well-drilled side no matter how you look at it."
