Cmon the town , getting to the buisness end . I think we have been in 6 finals in the last 6 years . So we would want to make it , a magnificent 7 . I heard Gary Rodgers on radio , saying he had 5 FAI CUP medals , that is incredible. Time to go on a run . If we can bring our second half performance in last game in to the remaining games , we will be flying . It’s gotta be high tempo , & blitz teams , end of story .

I think this is a decent draw, Balybofey grass pitch should be in good state for the game, mid sept, I note they have a home game the week before, but no mid week, weather usually good in sept so this pitch might suit us fine.

Plus could been a lot worse with Bohs, Pats and Waterford all away, we should be embracing this as a very good chance to make semis.

The way the draw worked out, its probably certain that one of Bohs and Pats will make the final ( maybe both !!!), we could even meet either in the semi, but QF is all we need to be looking at for now.

Some haul by Gary, 3 with DFC in 15, 18 and 20, and one with Sligo in 2013, he was on the bench for Drogs win in 2005.
