McGrath devastated after 'heroic' defeat

Peter McGrath says his Fermanagh team produced an "heroic display" in Saturday's one-point qualifier defeat by Laois but says the players have been left devastated by the result.

"There is bitter disappointment but at the same time enormous pride at how the players performed and enormous hope for the future," said the Erne County boss after the 1-19 to 2-15 defeat at O'Moore Park.

Few pundits had given Fermanagh any hope going into Saturday's game after their defeat by Antrim in the Ulster Championship.

McGrath, after his first season in charge of Erne County, said his team will now target promotion from Division 3 in next year's Football League.
