St Eunan’s College ousted 14-time MacRory Cup winners St Patrick’s from Armagh in a bruising MacRory Cup play-off in Dromore on Monday.

St Eunan’s, Letterkenny 1-9

St Patrick’s, Armagh 1-8

(after extra-time)

The nuts and bolts of it means the Letterkenny side are through to the last eight of the competition, with St Patrick’s College from Cavan waiting in the wings.

Monday’s re-arranged encounter in Tyrone after Thursday’s initial postponement due to inclement weather was an absorbing contest.

In that respect, St Eunan’s can cherish a first quarter-final since Michael Murphy’s generation made it to the last four back in 2008.

On the other hand, Gary McDaid saw three of his players sent off in a contest that saw a number of incidents that meant its highlights package might best be recommended to be shown after the watershed.

St Patrick’s two dismissals brought the afternoon’s red card total to five.

At the start there was a goal in eight seconds from Michael Miller. By the conclusion, it was one of those contests where it took a while to digest just what had gone on.
