Can anyone name the Armagh men?

Leo Murphy is probably second on the left in the back row.

Dan McCartan?

Patsy OHagan?

Raymond McSherry (Poyntzpass) back row far right.

PT Treacy (Fermanagh), back row, third from the right.


St Colmans, 1956

Back row, Left to Right:

Ian Walsh, Leo Murphy, ? , Dab McCartan, Eugene Conway, Pat O'Hagan, Fr McArdle, PT Treacy (Garrison, Fermanagh), Tony Williamson, Raymond McSherry (Poyntzpass, Armagh)

Fron row, Left to Right:

James McCartan , Liam Watson (Lurgan, Armagh), Fintan Mussen, Dessie Creery (Lurgan, Armagh), Dominic O'Loan (Glenavy, Antrim), Larry McCartan, Tommy Keenan, ?

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.
