Bank of Ireland MacRory Cup Final:
St Patricks Dungannon 0-13 v 1-09 St Michaels Enniskillen
St Patricks’ sub Conal McGarrity scored a late point to give his school a dramatic one point victory over St Michaels Enniskillen.
The Dungannon school will now meet Athlone Community College in the All-Ireland Colleges semi-final on Saturday 22nd March.
This final could certainly be considered a ‘game of two halves’, as St Patrick’s over-turned a 5 point half time deficit with a stunning second half performance. This comeback was inspired by Dermot Thornton, who top-scored with 7 points, 6 from frees.
