And Not a Scan in Sight...
Despite much recent controversy about the omission of the fabled John 'Scan' Concannon from the team, the honouring of Saint Jarlath's of Tuam Hogan Cup 'All Stars' was a most enjoyable occasion.
Gerry Buckley, author of the acclaimed history of the first fifty years of the 'Hogan' was on hand to present a plaque culpted by Genesis Fine Arts, Mullingar, to honour the school's
Hogan Cup victories.
Pictured, left to right: Richard Hughes (President, St Jarlath's P.P.U.),Gerry Buckley (Author, 'Fifty Years of the Hogan Cup'), Fr Conal Eustace (President, St Jarlath's College), Michael Lyster RTÉ's own 'Tuam Sham', Compere. Father Eustace: 'Lads, is that 'Scan' Concannon I see at the back of the hall?
For the record, here's the 'All Stars' lineout:
Goal Keepers: Johnny Geraghty, Eugene Rooney.
Full Back Line: Enda Colleran, Senan Downes, Tomas Tierney, Henry Gavin.
Half Back Line: Pat Donnellan, Declan Meehan, John Morley, Joe Earley.
Mid-Field: Jimmy Duggan, Jimmy Lyons, Padraig Brogan.
Half Forward Line: Michael Donnellan, Sean Purcell, Seamus Leydon, Mark Butler.
