Finnian Moriarty: O’Rourke is ready to wage war

STRONG REACTION….Malachy O’Rourke has responded well to the Down loss

GAELIC Life columnist Finnian Moriarty has backed Monaghan to have a major say in this year’s All-Ireland series.

Writing in this week’s edition, the former Armagh defender pointed to Malachy O’Rourke’s reaction to their Ulster semi-final defeat to Down – and he feels that could prove key ahead of Saturday’s rematch at Croke Park.


“Ask any layman and he’ll tell you Down are having a good season, and, in a large part thanks to their previous meeting, Monaghan aren’t having a good year. But lo and behold here they are at the exact same stage in the footballing calendar. Monaghan lost the battle – but now comes the war.”
