Roscommon final spot a dream for ODonnell
28 August 2006
Roscommon minor manager Fergal ODonnell is delighted his side are in the All-Ireland final but revealed they wont be getting carried away with themselves.
The former star midfielder has guided the minors to their first All-Ireland appearance since 1951 after beating Meath by four points.
“We many not be the fanciest of teams but we work hard. Thats what we demand from them. Were delighted but lads cant get carried away. Were only into a final, again well probably be underdogs, but well be going hell for leather as well.”
ODonnell says he never gave the thought of an All-Ireland appearance much time.
“Its not something you could have dreamed of at the start of the year. The odd time you might be cutting the lawn or something daft at home and youd say I wonder,” says ODonnell.
“It was back maybe around February, I remember having that daft notion but you wipe it out of your head. But I remember this week again I wondered would it ever happen and its great to be there,” he admitted.
