'He doesn't know how hard we've trained' - Eamon McGee identifies flawed logic in criticism

An All-Ireland winner with Donegal in 2012, Eamon McGee accepts that a better chance to replicate the feat with his club Gaoth Dobhair may never realistically arrive.

Narrowly beaten in Saturday's All-Ireland club football semi-final by Galway's Corofin, reaching even these heights had come as something of a nice (albeit hard-earned) surprise.

"I'm definitely prepared for that," McGee responded when faced with the possibility that this will be as good as it gets for the Donegal club on Monday's OTB AM.

"We've been about long enough to know that the likes of myself, Neil [McGee] and Kevin Cassidy and a few of the older boys might possibly never get to that stage again.

"It still means you just have to try, knuckle-down and go at it again. Hopefully there'll be another two or three players who come in ... and they'll add to the team.

Notably absent from the immediate activity of the homecoming that followed Gaoth Dobhair's defeat (McGee was taking in a show by Professor Brian Cox), McGee hadn't been oblivious to the furore that quickly surrounded the end of the club's All-Ireland run.

"As I learned at Brian Cox on Saturday, the universe is finite and we’re talking about a David Brady tweet for two days here, going into day three," McGee stated.

"There’s just no need for it. When Brady sits down and he thinks hard about it, he’s going to realise that there was no logic to his point at all.

"He doesn’t know how hard we’ve trained, he doesn’t know the preparation, the video work we’ve put in.

"It didn’t affect his performance. I just don’t see the logic in his point."
