Cassidy – The Ingredients for a Winning Team

In this week’s Gaelic Life, columnist Kevin Cassidy talks about what is required for a club to reach a county final. 

Ahead of representing his club, Gaoth Dobhair in this Sunday’s Donegal senior county final, Cassidy admits that he believed his days of playing in a county decider had gone but finds himself back on the big day, 12 years on from his last.

“It’s county final week and although I have chased this moment since we last played in the final back in 2006. If i’m being honest I thought my own chance had gone.


“For any team to reach the decider a number of things must be in place. You must have a squad in place that back up their words with actions so in other words they train when they say they will train.”

You can read the full article in this week’s Gaelic Life and find out what it takes for a club to make a county final alongside six county final and six Ulster club previews.
