Update 24/9/17

There are many among us who still cherish the memories of Orchard Park, Elphin on 31st October 1993 when St. Michael's beat Creggs by a goal to gain promotion to Intermediate championship football. Many have since passed through the ranks at player and manager level representing the club with great pride and dignity at Intermediate level. Our intermediate team played with the same pride and dignity against Kilbride last Saturday but victory was not to be for St. Michael's who now face championship football at junior level in 2018. Thanks to each and everyone of the panel and to Stephen Sheeran and his management team for their dedication and commitment throughout the year.
