ST EUNAN’S have returned to familiar faces in a bid to restore themselves to the top of the tree in club football in Donegal.
The three-way ticket of Eamon O’Boyle, Brendan Devenney and Michael McGeehin were appointed without opposition at Sunday’s AGM at O’Donnell Park. The trio worked alongside one another for two successful years for the Letterkenny side.
“We will be working as a three-man management team and Vincent McGlynn will be joining us as well,” O’Boyle said yesterday. “We had a good spell together before and we will be looking to pick up where we left off. It’ll be a challenge of course but one we are looking forward to and we’ll get things moving next week when the lads will start pre-season.”
In 2008 with O’Boyle as manager, Devenney captaining the club and McGeehin the trainer, St Eunan’s won a league and championship double, the latter sealed thanks to a 2-13 to 1-8 win over Termon.
That autumn St Eunan’s won their first ever game in the Ulster club championship when they defeated Clonoe O’Rahilly’s from Tyrone in Coalisland before losing by three points to Armagh’s Crossmaglen Rangers.
Twelve months later, St Eunan’s took the Dr Maguire to the Cathedral Town for the third year in succession after Brendan Kilcoyne had overseen the first of those triumphs in 2007.
