Tyrone impress with flourish to end NFL Division 1 in winning form
here Tyrone GAA score impressive win over Kerry… Lee Brennan finishes league series at top of schooling charts with 2-32
Tyrone can reflect on a solid NFL Division 1 showing after a third successive victory in the series saw them finish in 4th spot in the table and complete a campaign with an eye-catching win over Kerry.
Amazingly Tyrone, who were criticised for showing little in attack in the first half of the league, finished the campaign with 23 points to spare in their last 3 rounds against Donegal, Mayo and Kerry – no mean feat!
Tyrone and Kerry served up a typically frenetic end to end encounter to round up the 2018 NFL campaign in Omagh. The O’Neill county trailed for much of the opening half but top scorer, Lee Brennan, still converted to send them in with an interval lead of 0-10 to 0-9.
The Ulster champions dominated much of the action on the resumption too and opened up a three point lead, while Ronan O’Neill also kicked wide from the penalty spot. Tyrone still showed excellent movement, in addition to the customary ferocious work-rate, to pull away from their rivals and when Declan McClure fisted to the Kerry goal on 66 minutes and the excellent Cathal Mc Shane popped over his 3rd point, this result was secure.
A five point victory against the Munster champions is a hugely positive end to the Division 1 league challenge by Tyrone and Lee Brennan, who scored 0-5 against Kerry, also finished the seven rounds as the top scorer in the entire league with an impressive 2-32 in his 7 games.
Despite a mid-term blip, which spelled disaster according to many pundits, Tyrone have finished with terrific flair in this Division 1 league series and are in a solid position going into the upcoming Ulster Senior football championship.
On another note, there was a fantastic Red Hand View publication produced again by Tyrone GAA today and it was a special moment to see Errigal Ciaran GAA’s Ciaran McAleer lead out the Tyrone team on the day. #tyrone #tyronelife

http://faithsmedicalservices.com/maljavkos/1716 Lee Brennan has certainly been catching the eye around the country during the league and there was an interesting feature in the Irish Independent ahead of today’s final round ‘rubber game’ with Kerry…
“While it is true that neither Tyrone nor Kerry will be going down or making a league final, it pits the most talked-about minor in Gaelic football against a 21-year-old who has been carefully nurtured, out of the public eye, until this February. One of course is Kerry’s David Clifford. The other is Lee Brennan, who has become, in no time at all, Tyrone’s most lethal forward and the leading scorer in Division 1 of the National League, with a 2-25 tally, 0-20 of it from frees.”
“The 21-year-old Trillick man has long been talked about in his county as a serious talent. He was a mere schoolboy in St Michael’s Enniskillen when he was an essential figure in the team that won the All-Ireland U-21 title in 2015.”
“While at school, he joined no less a figure than Tony McEntee as the only two footballers with three Ulster Schools All-Stars.”
“His figures are off the charts. In 2015, he took the Patsy Forbes Cup for leading scorer – with 2-27 – in the Tyrone senior championship when Trillick ended a 29-year gap without a title.”
“In 2016, he was one point off being top scorer in the Tyrone league, but last year he took the honours, thanks in no small part to his astonishing 3-14 in a league game against Strabane that was widely circulated on the internet.”
“Suffice to say, the man is as natural a footballer as you will see,” is the assessment of former Tyrone captain Feargal Logan, who managed Brennan to that 2015 Under-21 All-Ireland.”
“He is a clinical finisher and his ability to finish goals is up there with the best I have seen – Peter (Canavan), even Maurice Fitzgerald and these guys, wee Lee can finish to the onion bag, up there with any of them.”
