Fermanagh are the only team in their province to have never won the Ulster Senior Football Championship. Fermanagh beat Cavan in the 1914 Ulster semi-final and were nominated by the Ulster Council to play against Wexford in the All-Ireland semi-final. Because the train schedules did not allow them to get back for Sunday night, and the Great Northern Railway Company refused to run a special train because they were opposed to sport on Sunday, Fermanagh had to abdicate the responsibility to Monaghan, who later beat them in the Ulster final anyway. Fermanagh’s most successful run in the All-Ireland senior football championship to date came in 2004 when (using the back-door system to their advantage) they overturned the might of Armagh in the quarter-final before losing narrowly to Mayo in a semi-final replay.
