GAA National Football League Division 2 Preview | Diarmuid Connolly
Dublin GAA legend Diarmuid Connolly believes Derry are good value to win the National Football League Division 2 title after they were promoted from Division 3 last season.
The six-time All-Ireland winner was speaking to Leon Blanche of BoyleSports ahead of the new GAA season kicking off.
Derry Going Close
Derry had a huge year last year coming up from Division 3 and played some serious football.
“They went close against Donegal in the Ulster Senior Football Championship.
“Derry didn’t win anything, but they are building a lovely squad and I know a few of the players very well in that team.
“The Oak Leaf County will be hoping to get a good run at this National Football league and hit the ground running.
🔼 "They had a huge year last year & there's huge value in them to win it this year!"

“Galway have come down from Division 1 after a stop-start season last year and they had a few bad injuries.
“Cork had a poor season last year and you have Roscommon back in Division 2 with Offaly coming up from Division 3 and Clare just hanging on.”
“For me I just think there is huge value in this Derry side at 9/2 to win the Division 2 league this year.”
