Reaction: GAA Fans Stunned As Crossmaglen Beaten For Second Time in 20 Years

For just the second time in 20 years, Crossmaglen will not be crowned Armagh SFC champions.

The 43-time champions were going for seven titles on the bounce but their monopoly on the Fagan Cup ended Sunday night when they were beaten by a point thanks to a last minute goal by St Patricks Cullyhanna, who won 1-15 to 0-17.

Now that the inter-county season is over, the club game will take the focus of fans all over the country. And, with this shock result, will be a warning to all teams in the country that there is no such thing as a guaranteed win.

The club’s minor team did, however, retain their title earlier in the day.

This result, while huge in Armagh, will also make the Ulster Championship more open as the most famous team in club football will miss out.

For St Patricks Cullyhanna, they now have the task to get back down to earth and back up the huge performance.
