DAVID O’Herlihy says St Eunan’s College got a lesson in fine margins as they lost out to St Pat’s, Cavan in the Danske Bank Mac Rory Cup yesterday.
St Eunan’s went down 3-11 to 2-9 in Dromore on a day that left O’Herlihy encouraged and frustrated all at once.
“Effort-wise, we weren’t found wanting,” he told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub.
“We’re very disappointed to give away three poor goals. If you give away three goals, you’ll struggle to win a match.”
Eoin Dowling and Shane Monaghan netted the goals for St Eunan’s, who had too much to do when 2-8 to 1-3 behind at the break.
O’Herlihy said: “The mountain was just too high.
“We gave away a soft free and we missed a free ourselves. Ill-discipline cost us one time in the first half. These are fine margins – and there are three points that were completely avoidable.”
