Durcan’s Drumcliffe-Rosses Point fall just short in Sligo SFC final as Tourlestrane win five-in-row

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.
