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?

Re: Dominic O'Loan (Glenavy, Antrim)

The principal of St Pats Ballymena was Dominic O'Loan. He's a Glenravel man now. It's not unlike him in that photo. Wonder if they're one of the same?

Dominic O'Loan is a Glenravel (N.Antrim) man, born and bred. Was vice-principal at St Pats, Ballymena, never principal.

Mr Mc Sherry, as recently as last Thursday night, proudly showed me the letter he received from Croke Park informing him that he is to be the recipient of a President's Award for his service to the GAA at the Club Finals this year. Almost 60 years after that school team photograph was taken and still going strong!

Yes Raymond is proud as punch. He will be paraded with others during the St Patrick's Day Final.

Also, by strange coincidence one of the other guys on the back row plays in the four-ball behind me at my golf club in Belfast.

Back Row: Pius Tierney(Benny's Da), Gary Fitzsimmons, Dan Mc Cartan, Joe Mulholland, Malachy Mc Manus, P T Treacy, Patsy O'Hagan. Middle Row: Ian Walsh, Liam Watson, Larry Mc Cartan, Domnic O'Loan, Finbar O'Hagan, Leo Murphy, Raymond Dowd(RIP), Joe Goodwin, Marcel Marsden. Front Row: Gregory O'Hara, Seamus Mc Conville, Patsy Mc Kenna, Tommy Keenan (Capt.), Fintan Mussen, Kevin Murphy, Paddy Walsh.
I'm gonna show you as gently as I can how much you don't know.

This thread is turning into a St Colman's College Hogan Cup timeline. Next up must be the Hogan Cup winning team featuring Jimmy Smyth?
