Hurling

After being suspended from football for two years, a hurling club, St Finbarr's, was started, winning back-to-back Derry Senior Hurling Championships in the 1960s, before being disbanded.

History

St Patrick's Loup was formed in 1933 and won its first Derry Senior Championship three years later. Players on the team included Paddy Larkin, Fr Éamonn Devlin (who played for Armagh) and Peter Donaghy (played as goalkeeper for Derry). After disappearing from the top, they were a Junior side for many years, reaching the 1958/59? Derry Junior Football Championship final, where they lost to Glen.

In 1963 and 1964 St Finbarrs won the Derry Hurling Championship.

The current pitch was opened by Cardinal Tomás Ó Fiaich in 1981.
