PAUL DURCAN has won club championships here in his native Donegal and in Dublin but this afternoon he was out of luck in the Sligo SFC final.
The 2012 All-Ireland winning goalkeeper is currently living in Sligo and this afternoon at Markievicz Park was in goal for Drumcliffe-Rosses Point in their first ever SFC final, a 1-14 to 1-11 loss at the hands of Tourlestrane, who won a fifth crown on the bounce.
Tourlestrane were 0-7 to 0-4 up at half-time and Drumcliffe-Rosses Point got themselves back to within two points.
The 36-year-old Durcan didn’t concede a goal in five championship matches until Pat Harte’s penalty six minutes from tome today. Sean Waldron scored the Drumcliffe-Rosses Point goal a minute after the penalty.
Durcan, from Donegal town, was a 2003 SFC winner with his native Four Masters and then in 2015 lifted the Dublin and Leinster crowns with Ballyboden-St Enda’s, who went onto win the 2016 All-Ireland club championships.
