In a team mixed with youth and experience, Shane Devaney falls into the experienced section and the vice-captain is hoping his team can complete another memorable year for Glencar/Maonrhamilton with victory in Saturday’s final.

Looking ahead to Saturday’s showdown with Eslin, Shane was aware of the threat awaiting his side but remains confident in his team’s ability.

“You have to be confident going in to a final. Confident in your own ability, confident in your team’s ability. Eslin are a huge proposition, they have great players. Everyone is talking about the Beirnes but they have a number of players scattered over the field.

Shane saw some of Eslin’s semi-final win and was impressed by what he saw.

“Some of the players coming from midfield and from deep caused Dromahair a lot of trouble. It’s not just about two, it’s about their whole 15 and we have to try and work to keep them pinned back as best we can.”

Focusing on where he feels the game may be won, Shane was measured in his reply saying, “All we can do is concentrate on our own game and hopefully get as many players as possible playing to their maximum.”
