St Michael’s – Enniskillen MacRory Cup

2019 will live long in the lore around Drumclay. St Michael’s got their MacRory Cup campaign of to a winning start with a gritty 0-13 to 1-9 against Abbey CBS. They followed that up with a one point semi-final victory over St Patrick’s, Maghera packed with character.

In the final St Michael’s cut loose, seeing off Omagh CBS comfortably on a scoreline of 0-16 to 2-6 to claim the schools seventh MacRory Cup win. St Michael’s weren’t done there though. They defeated St Colman’s Claremorris 2-13 to 1-10 in the semi-finals before a nervy 1-12 to 1-11 win over Naas CBS in Croke Park saw St Michael’s become the first ever Fermanagh side to win an A Grade title in any code.
