Ideal match: James McMahon and Joanne Doonan step out in style

James McMahon, one of the leading defenders in Ulster, has a special reason for welcoming the return to action at club and county level.

The Roslea clubman, who has helped to anchor the Fermanagh rearguard over the course of recent seasons, acknowledges that while it will be "difficult" for all players when the curtain goes up again next month, he is nonetheless determined to make up for what he views as "lost time".

Yet McMahon's return to the Erne colours when he was thought to have dipped his toe in the Australian Football League waters was particularly welcome.
