Carrickcruppen club notes – 26th March 2012
ST. PAUL’S REACH ALL-IRELAND FINAL
The Gaelic footballers from St. Paul’s High School in Bessbrook have done their school, families, parish and clubs proud in the last week by becoming the first team from the school to win the prestigious Ulster Colleges G.A.A. MacLarnon Cup beating St. Colm’s of Derry in the final last Monday in the Athletic Grounds, Armagh. They had little time to celebrate as they had to go straight back into preparation for an All-Ireland Colleges semi-final which they had beaten a team from Fermoy, Co. Cork in Portarlington Co. Laois on Saturday with four points to spare. Carrickcruppen are well represented with Blaine Hughes, Caolan McCullough, Conor Sloan and Daniel Lewis all on the panel. We wish the School well in the All-Ireland final and we ask all our members and friends to support them in their quest to bring All-Ireland honours back to Bessbrook for the first time since 1982.

On behalf of the Club I would like to offer commiserations to Donal Morgan who performed admirably in the Ulster Final of Scor in Derry on Saturday night.
