MARTIN REGAN ADMITS THAT he thought Lady Luck had donned the St Eunan’s colours in today’s county final.
Regan’s Naomh Conaill were two points down when they had Eoghan McGettigan sent off – immediately after he was introduced as a substitute – and captain Leo McLoone saw a goal ruled out.
Just when it seemed as if fortune deserted them, they caught fire, led by McLoone and aided by replacements like the ageless Johnny McLoone and the exuberant Ethan O’Donnell.
“Just to see it over the line at the end is massive. Massive,” the Naomh Conaill manager told Donegal Sport Hub after their 0-11 to 0-10 win.
