O Lorcáin bags two trophies in just four days

IT was a dual double-up that top-class defender, Enda ó Lorcáin, will cherish forever.

In Croke Park last week, he helped Coláiste Eoin defeat Marist, Athlone in the Leinster Colleges Senior Football A Championship final.

It was the Stillorgan's school's first success in the competition since 1998.

They had two points to spare and they are now preparing for the All-Ireland semi-final.

Four days after the Croke Park success, once more in the number two jersey, Enda again struck gold, but this time in hurling.

He played no small part in Ballinteer St John's winning their first-ever Dublin U21 'A' Hurling Championship crown as they overcame Kilmacud Crokes.

Up in the Marley mansion, Kieran Brennan is already planning to boil the kettle, pull up the chairs closer to the fire and tell his audience all about the notable exploits of this young man. An scéal mór.
