St Paul’s welcome back Herald Cup Champions!

Pictured above is the under 16 boys team receiving a rapturous reception from the staff and students at St Paul’s, as they won the Danske Bank Ulster Colleges Herald Cup.  

Students and staff at St Paul’s High School, Bessbrook, lined the school’s front avenue to welcome home to victorious Ulster Colleges Herald Cup team, who defeated their south Armagh rivals, St Joseph’s High School, Crossmaglen in a well-matched final held in Armagh on Saturday 24 November.

Principal of St Paul’s High School, Mr Oliver Mooney, welcomed back the team and accepted the Herald Cup from team captain Miceál McNamee.  The 1500-strong student population cheered as the team lined out on a specially erected podium at the front of the school, and heard Mr Mooney pay tribute to the team’s dedication and ‘never say die’ spirit which characterised their victory.

We’ve selected some photos from the Herald Cup victory celebrations and uploaded them below.




A well earned victory following two hard years of disappointment at U14 level finals. On Saturday you proved to all that you have what it takes, skill and determination. Enjoy your victory you are worthy Ulster Champions!!
