I know Stef was on this team that got to the all Ireland final - any others that we would know?

They didn't make the All Ireland final MR. They were beaten in the semi final . I think Summerhill beat them . Ollie might be able to verify that . Robbie McCrave, Gerry Curran, Brendan Prenty and Walter Lambert were some of the players and squad members on that team . I think there may have been a McClean on it too . John Osborne may have been on it as well MR.

Summerhill from Sligo beat them in the semi-final. They were beaten by a team from Cork in the final. Was any the O Hanlon's on that team Greengrass?

Butterly's cousin, John Osborne.

A few O'Connells lads - Ian McCrory, White, Ian McClean.

Clans had Martin Kerley, Gerry Curran and Robbie McCrave.

Is Fiachra Bell a school principal now?

Six played for Louth seniors at some stage afterwards, and one for Monaghan. And Level, if you ever bump into Robbie McCrave, don't tell him you thought he was a Clan!!

He wasn't with the Gaels, was he?

Had him in a Clans jersey but wouldn't be first time my memory was off.

Greengrass I think he means that the O Hanlon Bros were in De La Salle School in Dundalk when I asked were they in the CBS.
