PCC FALCARRAGH will bid to win the McDevitt Cup (Ulster Under 14 and a Half ‘C’) for the first time in their history when they take on St Ronan’s College, Lurgan in Owenbeg on Friday at 12pm.

The Falcarragh school booked their place in the decider after a tough semi-final with Loreto Convent, Coleraine last Tuesday, when they needed extra-time to see off the Derry boys.


There were some sore bodies after that triumph, but team manager Brian McDermott says his charges have recovered well, and are feeling fresh ahead of the clash at the Derry Centre of Excellence.
