I thought it was an interesting perspective so I was wondering what others thought on the issue?
My friends opinion was that for a team to win 4 championships, (lost their first final as well) several leagues, two of which were doubles and for their reserve team to win something like 5-6 championships and again several leagues all in the space of 5-6 years that this had to go down as a great team.
My perspective was slightly different. Although agreeing that this was an amazing feat surely it still hasn't matched the likes of Enniskillen in the late 90's early naughty's winning 6 in a row I think (correct me if I'm wrong) Enniskillen also made strides in Ulster something which this current side hasn't really achieved yet. Also comparing them to the Roslea side of the 80's who won 3-4 championships I think and maybe 5-6 league titles in a row and who also got to an Ulster club final...
I think the current Roslea side is the best since the Enniskillen side mentioned above but to consider them as one of Fermanagh's greats.... I'm not so sure. For me another couple of championships and at least an Ulster club final appearance would suffice for a title as such?
What are others opinions on this? What other 'great' teams (presuming you think Roslea are a 'great' team at present) could we compare this current side to? Within measure of course, not sure if you can compare this side to the likes of the teemore side's in the 20's or 30's..
Also congrats to the Roslea lads on a wonderful season I think everyone would agree even though not to many would be to forthcoming in admitting that!

I agree with your opinion that I think they are a very good team and they have built a strong squad of players that has achieved greatly in the last 5 or 6 years. I think enniskillen did the double double in 1999/2000.
