Fermanagh were beaten by Mayo last night in a high-profile challenge game at Brewster Park, but the football was secondary to the cause of the game, the contest played in aid of the Sam Bradley Care Fund.
Sam, the son of Sunday Life columnist and former Fermanagh player Colm Bradley, was diagnosed with high risk Neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer, in January, and is currently undergoing treatment in Belfast following surgery on Thursday.
Mayo named a strong line-up for the game as they prepare for their championship meeting with Galway on May 19.
And they enjoyed the better of the exchanges in the first half, although a Fermanagh side missing a number of regulars hung on in the opening quarter. Only one point separated the sides at that stage.
