DAVID O’Herlihy says his St Eunan’s College side will take confidence from yesterday’s Danske Bank Mac Rory Cup win over Holy Trinity.
St Eunan’s had the edge, 0-9 to 0-7, in Drumragh, as the Letterkenny students held off a stern comeback having been seven points ahead at one stage in the second half.
“We always expected Cookstown to have a purple patch and they came back at us,” O’Herlihy told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub.
“It was backs-to-the-wall stuff at the end. It was cagey. They played a little bit like ourselves so it was never going to be a high-scoring game.”
St Eunan’s face some tough tests in the coming weeks, but O’Herlihy and co are just glad to be in tis mix.
He said: “We know that we’re minnows so getting that victory will do the lads confidence good. It only gets hard for us now, but it’s a good start and all we can do is build now.”
