Listen: St Eunan’s College look to pen another chapter of MacLarnon glory


St Eunan’s College go in search of a sixth MacLarnon Cup success on Monday.

St Eunan’s face Holy Trinity, Cookstown in the final at the Athletic Grounds, Armagh (throw-in 11.15am).

“There’s a big prize,” said St Eunan’s manager Neil Gordon.

“It’s what we’ve set out to do and we ticked all the boxes.

“There will be nerves and boys will make mistakes, but this is where we wanted to be at the start of the year.”

St Eunan’s defeated Colaiste Inis Eoghain in the semi-final and have their scent on the prize again, four years after their last triumph in the competition.

St Eunan’s won the MacLarnon in 1968, 1979, 2000, 2007 and 2014.

Former Donegal forward Colm McFadden was in the class of ’00 and, now a teacher in the school, is part of the management team.
