Gaoth Dobhair and Scotstown had the perfect, essential, mix of seasoned men and youth. But Cassidy as a target man and the wizardry of Mac Naillais was something Scotstown didn’t have. 1/2

Kevin Cassidy is a class act. Big call for a foul on him in the last play of game which would have won it and he’s the 1st man over to protect the ref from his teammates and selectors after!

Kevin Cassidy interviewed on the pitch 40 seconds after the final whistle. The beauty of radio. He can hardly speak but the importance of today comes across clearly “Stuff of Dreams” he says. Perfect.
