SHS Mourns Passing of Anne McCone

By | February 25, 2019

Everyone in SHS was deeply saddened to learn of the passing Anne Murphy (nee McCone) a former pupil of the school.

Anne was a tremendous camogie player with School, Club and County.  In 1970 she was centre-half back on the first school team to collect Corn Uan Uladh for the Ulster Senior Championship. The following year she was Captain of the School Team that were convincing winners of the Corn Uan Uladh for a second time.  Anne was the first Ulster Captain to lift Corn Sceilge.  By the time Anne captained SHS to All-Ireland glory she had already won an Ulster Junior title as centre-half back with Armagh and played an All-Ireland Final in Croke Park  when the orchard county lost 4-2 to 3-3 to Dublin.  She continued to represent her county and Club Carrickcruppen helping them to their only County Senior title in 1972.

Anne will be remembered in SHS for her tremendous sporting achievements and for her friendly personality and our sympathy is extended to her husband Eamon, her daughters Ciara, Cáitríona and Niamh and the extended Murphy and McCone families.
