Ronan O’Neill Named Young Achiever At Ulster Writers
Ronan O’Neill has enjoyed a 2010 season that most players can only dream of and on Friday night he picked up another accolade when he was named Ulster GAA writers young achiever of the year. The Omagh St.Endas clubman was the unanimous choice at the annual banquet at the Slieve Russell Hotel in Ballyconnell. It has been a truly unbelievable season for one of the most exciting talents in Tyrone football at present. He began the year by playing a key role in Omagh’s first ever Ulster minor title success at the prestigious St.Paul’s tournament in Belfast and hasn’t looked back since. He helped the St.Endas reach the inaugural Ulster U21 final in Creggan were they lost out to Burren while most recently he played his part as Omagh clinched the league title to secure back to back minor doubles. On the school front he was a key player as Omagh CBS reached the MacRory Cup final while he was the top scorer as Tyrone Minors secured Ulster and All Ireland titles. He also played in the ill fated Ulster minor league decider against Dublin at Breffni Park and all in all he played in five Provincial finals this season, quite a record. He is currently injured but with the defence of Omagh St.Endas Ulster title beginning next weekend and a quarter final in the Tyrone U21 championship to look forward to he still has plenty to get excited about this year.
