Leo Murphy is probably second on the left in the back row. Dan McCartan and Patsy O'Hagan would have been at the college around the same time, but it is difficult to pick them out.

If the photo was taken possibly before 1955, the following were on the 1949 McRory Cup winning St Colman's team and some may have possibly still been knocking about a few years later. Probably not though.

The team line-out in 1949 was:
 
Liam McCorry (Clann Eireann, Lurgan)
 
Patsy McConville (Derrymacash)
 
Dan McCartan (Banbridge)
 
Stephen McKay (Burren/Warrenpoint)
 
Mick O’Hanlon (Cullyhanna)
 
Tom McPartlan (Derrymacash)
 
P. J. McElroy (Liatroim Fontenoys)
 
Seán Blaney (capt.) (Clann Eireann, Lurgan)
 
Hugh O’Hare (Dromara)
 
Arthur O’Hanlon (Whitecross)
 
Kevin Mussen (Clonduff Shamrocks)
 
Leo McNeill (Annaclone)
 
T. J. Maguiness (Roscommon Gaels)

Dan McCartan fourth from left back row. Is that sean O'Neill further across from that? Sixth from left?

Sean O'Neill went to the Abbey and the i.d. for Dan McCartan is uncertain

Fintan Mussen is front row - Third from the Left - He's Kevin Mussen's brother and grandfather of Damien Mc Keown who is on the current Down minor panel and scored the final point in their win aginst Monaghan a few weeks ago
That awkward moment - Not sure if you do have free time or if you're just forgetting everything!

Looking at that photo made me think. In the not too distant past there were a lot of lads from South Armagh and Lurgan who made it big with St Colman's. Players like Benny Tierney, Neil Smyth, Jarlath Burns, Diarmuid Marsden to name but a few. I'm out of touch now but have there been any recent additions who have made it big or even have the potential to make it big?
