Social Media Reaction – Kilcoo’s star performance


Even the mighty Michael Murphy couldn’t stop Kilcoo on Sunday afternoon, as the Down champions confirmed their passage into the Ulster Club semi-final.

Kilcoo showed all their resourcefulnes and determination during the 1-12 to 1-6 win at Pairc Esler.

They were trailing by 1-4 to 0-6 at half time, the goal was scored by Michael Murphy who appeared to dominate for stages.

However, the game turned when Glenswilly’s Cathal Gallagher challenged high on Conor Laverty. This earned Kilcoo a penalty, and saw the Glenswilly man sent off.

From that stage onwards Kilcoo dominated. Ryan Johnston, Darragh O’Hanlon and Paul Devlin put on fine displays.

Those fans who made the trip to Pairc Esler were very impressed with the Kilcoo performance and many suggested that the Down Champions would be hard to stop in Ulster.


The Full forward line is the most important line on your team.

There was plenty of surprise as the favourites Kilcar were turned over by Glenswilly in the county final.

Steven Poacher has announced the Ulster coaches who will be taking sessions at the St Columban's clinic.
