Social Media Reaction – Down players and fans celebrate

Eamonn Burns delivered Down’s championship win yesterday

Down’s return to Pairc Esler for a championship match turned out to be a joyous one as they beat their bitter rivals by 0-15 to 2-7.

Down hadn’t beaten Armagh in the championship in 25 years, but they did so in an interesting game in Newry.

The first half was a thriller, in which Armagh led by2-4 to 0-9, the goals coming from Mark Shields and Andrew Murnin. It was a half of exciting and open football.

The second period was not so attractive, as Down’s defensive unit sought to nullify the Armagh attack.

In the end, Down were deserving winners, and the delight and relief was there in equal measure on social media.


Will Darragh O'Hanlon's fantasy score improve in 2018?

This Kilcoo man has topped the scoring so far.

THERE’S an awe and mystique about St Colman’s, Newry that few schools in Ulster have the ability to replicate.
