McArdle, Vincie

Vincie McArdle had the rare distinction of garnering Louth senior football championship medals with two different clubs. The Lordship native was full forward for Cooley in the 1939 final and bagged 1-1 during the comprehensive defeat of Newtown Blues. The Louth star transferred to Gaels in 1941 and made an immediate impact with the town club, adding SFC souvenirs in 1942 and '45. His sons Benny, Eugene, Philip and Paul all played with distinction and his grandsons Conall and Eanna were on Dundalk Gaels' 2007 IFC-winning side.
