The one and only time that Naomh Conaill reached the final of the Ulster SFC, Ciaran Thompson was 15 as he shouted his support of his three elder brothers Leon, Aaron and Anthony.
That was in 2010 when the Donegal champions from Glenties eventually lost out to Crossmaglen Rangers at Breffni Park, at the outset of the coldest of cold winters.
Fast forward nine years and Thompson has another provincial showpiece to look forward to as club captain. His three second half points in the foggy surroundings of Healy Park on Saturday night made sure Naomh Conaill got the better of Monaghan’s Clontibret on a 0-12 to 0-9 scoreline.
