Cavan Gaels March On

Cavan Gaels 1-19

Lamh Dhearg 0-10

Cavan Gaels eased to victory over Antrim’s Lamh Dhearg in a one-sided Ulster club football quarter-final.

Micheal Lyng fisted a first half goal for the Gaels as they led by nine points at half 1-11 to five points.

Paddy Cunningham fired over two Lamh Dhearg points on the restart but they never threatened a comeback and Cavan now face Derrygonnelly in the semis.

“We’re delighted now, last year we were fighting relegation, then we won the county championship” explained Gaels Niall Murray.

“The draw that we got, we thought we would beat the Antrim Champions, if we were being realistic with ourselves we should be able to win it.”

“Jayo, doesn’t tell us to stop going for goals, but we do play with flair” added Murray.

“Honestly we would like to win an Ulster title, but it is one game at a time. That Derrygonnelly have won three Fermanagh championship, they must be a good side to do that.”

“We will get ready for them next and see where that takes us” added Murray.
