In the end it was so easy for Kilcoo in their rout of Derrygonelly in the Ulster senior football club final, with Oisin McConville describing the contest as "very much unwatchable at times".

3-10 to 0-03 for the Down champions tells its own story. First-time finalists Derrygonnelly simply never got going, much to the disappointment of those gathered at the Athletic Grounds in Armagh, who were expecting a tight provincial decider.

McConville, speaking on RTÉ's Sunday Sport, was full of praise for the way the victors went about their business.

"Kilcoo, no doubt were surprised themselves they had so much control with still ten minutes to go in the first half. It could have been any score in the end. They kept turning Derrygonnelly over and Derrygonnelly could not get any sort of foothold from their own kickouts or the opposition kickouts. When it's not going well for you it's really difficult to get back into a game. Kilcoo are so good at holding possession and playing on the break."

In further praising the now two-time Ulster champions, McConville added: "People talk about how seasoned they are, they have been in this position so many times. Their athleticism, conditioning, and the way they closed the game out, was exceptional."

As for the vanquished, the Crossmaglen clubman mentioned that "Derrygonnelly will feel desperately disappointed with their performance" and that they "never gave themselves a chance to win the game as confidence drifted away from them early on".

Not an Ulster final then to remember if you're a neutral, with McConville pointedly summing it up by saying: "It was very much unwatchable at times. As far as a spectacle, it was very, very poor."

Next up for Kilcoo is an All-Ireland semi-final date with Cork's St Finbarr's in a fortnight's time. And while McConville was at pains not to give a definite view on how that encounter will unfold, he feels the Ulster winners have enough about them to cause problems for any opposition.

"Kilcoo are so at ease at the way they play. They make it tough for the opposition on the break and have a huge amount of pace all over the pitch. Kilcoo to edge it."
