Jordan Flynn is our MOTM from yesterday’s game

Right, with the focus already re-fixed towards the match facing us next Sunday, let’s get this final bit of business from yesterday’s game squared away.

Cillian O’Connor, since 2019 the all-time top scorer in the football Championship, has had a frustrating time of it this year, only seeing action intermittently off the bench. The Ballintubber man’s most recent cameo for the county came in the defeat to Roscommon back in April, where he joined the fray as a second half substitute and kicked an outrageous […]
