After an outstanding performance in last weekends’ Ulster semi final victory over Antrim, Darach O Connor could surely be forgiven for lapping up a wee bit of the limelight following his wonder goal in the second half.

However, when speaking to the Inishowen Independent this week, the Buncrana forward maintained that it’s all about the team.

“Obviously I was delighted with the goal but at the end of the day the most important thing is that we are in the Ulster final in a few weeks time,” said O Connor.

Speaking of the Ulster final, surely O Connor will be a strong contender for a starting slot on the 20th of July but the young starlet, who is now third favourite to be named Young footballer of the year was refusing to be caught up in the hype.

“Look I’m really looking forward to the final as we all are but at the minute I’m just delighted to be part of the panel and if I start against Monaghan or Armagh it will simply be a bonus,” he said.

The Buncrana man was one of three Scoil Mhuire students to reach an Ulster final on Sunday with Caolan McGonagle and John Campbell both figuring in the minor teams comfortable victory over Antrim and O Connor was delighted for his schoolmates.
