2024 TG4 All-Ireland Finals tickets

Ulster Final for Tyrone this Saturday



Tyrone under 16s

Tyrone Under 16s will contest this weekends Ulster
U16 championship final against Monaghan at Emyvale
and after coming through the group stages unscathed
its expected that this final could produce the
best football of the year so far. Captained by
Maeve Cobain from midfield ably assited by her
midfield partner Neamh Woods Tyrone go into the
final full of confidence but with niggling injuries
threatening to spoil the party. That said Cobane
who has vast expierience at club and county level
being a member of the Carrickmore senior panel
since 2001 is happy at the way 2005 has went so
far We’d have to be happy with how things have
gone so far. In fairness, the scorelines have
maybe flattered us a little bit because they’re
all tough games that we’ve played. Our performance
against Cavan was much better than the performances
before, as we seem to have moulded into a team
as opposed to maybe relying on individuals. So
the signs are good so far, we seem to be finding
form at just the right time and hopefully we can
continue that.”

Many of the current squad have been together before,
with the exception of a few they all competed
and collected an All Ireland Under 14 blitz and
that, claims the captain means there is a great
sense of unity in this panel “This year it’s basically
the same panel as we had at Under 14 level two
years ago. We all know each other really well,
and we’ve basically just picked up where we left
off with that side. We had some good successes
at that level, including winning the All-Ireland
Under 14 Blitz, so we’re hoping we can do something
similar at this level.” Neamh Woods is currently
playing some of her best football, no surprise
then that she has been named as joint captain,
the Drumragh playmaker has enjoyed success at
schools level this year but feels the best is
yet to come for the County side. “We haven’t played
to our full potential yet, we’ve still got a few
more gears left in us yet. We’re playing better
now as a team than we did before, when we had
a tendency to rely on individuals to see us through.
We’ve worked hard on that in the last few weeks,
and I think we’ve benefited from it in the Cavan
game especially.”

Tyrone eased themselves through the group stages
, a stunning victoryagainst Cavan on route but
Monaghan are a different prospect. Quality at
all grades and they are keen to secure another
provincial crown. Tyrone then will have to be
at their best….but they do have a strong panel…..
