Did I say the Teemore game was today, read the message again mate. Yes Tempo were right to go as they will be playing a hurling type team in their Ulster opening. Lisbellaw may has gotten success today but in seniors it will be an up hill struggle.

to all you so called gael's knocking hurling in this county, have you's ever bin to an actual game? fermanagh were very unlucky not to win the lory meagher cup in croker only to be pipped to the post in last minute of extra time, and yesterday the law produced a masterclass in hurling to beat cloughmills of antrim to win the intermediate championship. well done to the law and best of luck in the all ireland semi finals, the dedication and commitment this bunch of lads put in is remarkable and deserve every success and support from all true gael's in this county. lios beal atha abu

Well done to L'bellaw on winining the intermediate Ulser hurling title. In respect of one poster reporting that a large Tempo contingent were at yesterdays final, does 4 players represent "large"?

Well done to Lisbellaw. Deservedly won. But why is this a surprise? They play in the top division in Armagh and compete against better quality than the teams Cloughmills play in Division 3 Antrim. Added that 10 or 11 of that team play county hurling for Fermangh then you can see that its not really a shock. These Lisbellaw lads play more hurling than the Cloughmills boys do as they play Ulster league and National league.

Well done again and i've no doubt you'll do yourselves justice in the All Ireland series.

We'll never hear the end of this.

I see I missed tonight's celebrations according to another thread (see below) that there was an open top bus parade through Lisbellow and the pubs are to be packed.

1289697 I'd say all the pubs are packed since the great win... will there be a parade through the village tonight or an open topped bus. Well done lads... some milestone for Fermanagh Hurling. "

Congratulations to Lisbellaw on their Ulster Club Championship win.

It is welcoming to see hurling gaining success in a county where there is little support from the top.

I teach in a different county where hurling is encouraged in schools by the county board concerned and financially supported.

I am disappointed with the negativity shown towards hurling in general as well as Lisbellaw's recent success. How can such posters call themselves genuine GAA supporters and at the same time dismiss such an important aspect of sporting life in the GAA organisation?

As a teacher, my skills have been able to track down one of these 'negative' scribes. For example, in a recent posting from a user called "kikfada from Louth", who has no obvious links with Fermanagh or Ulster hurling, decides to make a laugh of Lisbellaw's success by suggesting a parade through a village that he knows would not happen. My skills suggest that this is old regular multi-username scribe callked "macca999" who also goes by among other names including the "GalloonBaffoon", "fermanagh_gael", etc. I feel sad for such people who have nothing better to do with their time.

I hope the positive GAA people of Fermanagh will continue to show their support for Lisbellaw by getting behind them as they push forward in the All Ireland Club Intermediate Hurling Championships.

u seem to be using the law's method to give the impression that the opposition is superior. whatever st galls have won or not they r from antrim...yes antrim the hurling county and not the football county in ulster. kilkenny comes to mind an thats says it all! if tempo lose it will prove that they were not the best to represent fermanagh after all. time will tell!

Hear that the bookies are taken some money on the result of one of the week end games. The under dogs to win with in Fermanagh.

I'm putting my money on St Galls for obvious reasons.

Neither team is worth betting on as none of them will make the final. Tempo is made up of some ageing players that will find things tough at this level but at least they might just get some experience out of the Ulster venture if they last beyong Sunday.

Best of luck to Teemore and Temp0 on Sunday. I will be in Enniskillen to watch, should be a good game vs St Galls. Would give Tempo a 50/50 chance as have been stong in any game i have seen them this year and have a good forward unit. Midfield as always will be the key battle

Teemore should also have a good chance as lots of experience in that team and have shown in last few years can perfome on the day.

As for the snipes by posters from coa and Irvinstown, i hope you realise no one takes your comments seriously. You would be best served helping your club try and better the divison three semi final you are in, like the vast majority of your fellow club members you should focus on your club.

I hope nione of these teams let down Fermanagh but I'm sceptical about the senior one as Tempo progressed to this point in unusual cirmsrtances and therefore not trully tested. Teemore may fine that their they are best suited toi intermediate football for the next few years until a new batch of players take over and with that in mind, it will be difficult for the ageing footballers to impress tomorrow. On another matter, I was watching the Michala football game on TG4 and I didn;'t observe a single Fermanagh county board man as the cameras panned the crowds in Casement Park. I gather there was no big feeds to attract them.
