ST MARY’S UNLIKELY Sigerson Cup win was 28 years in the making and, as the final whistle blew on Saturday afternoon, nobody was more relieved than Paddy Tally.

His reaction said it all, sinking to his knees in a mixture of joy and disbelief as he greeted the Belfast school’s victory over third-level giants UCD.

“It was just relief, absolute relief,” he told Jerome Quinn who caught the emotional moment on camera.

“To be honest with you, it’s hard to believe this. I don’t think it’s sunk in yet.

“It has been a long journey to this point to win one.

“It’s a really satisfying feeling at the moment and one that I’m going cherish for a while.”
