Sunday at Celtic Park was certainly a day for tweeting from the press box. The luxury of WiFi and shelter was great. Just a pity it takes an age to get home from it though!
For the Kilrea and Loup players, conditions were dreadful. Young Loup corner forward Anthony O’Neill deserves a lot of credit for the way he took his goal. He rounded a corner back and ‘keeper before slotting to the net. This was at a stage when the rain was heaviest.
Mary K Burke (Derry Post) captured the conditions from the game in this photo of James Donaghy breaking clear of Aidan McAlynn’s challenge.
The sun came out for the second game between Dungiven and Ballinderry. However, the injury to Ballinderry’s Aaron Devlin put the importance of football into perspective. He was taken away in an ambulance. Thankfully he has improved and hopefully he makes a full recovery and has a great career ahead of him.
