Kilcoo coach Conleith Gilligan will be plotting against former charges on Sunday week when the Down champions take on Naomh Conaill in the Ulster club SFC final.
Gilligan was a coach with the Glenties club in 2010 when he worked under Cathal Corey and says he has “always had a soft spot” for them ever since.
"I'd have a very soft spot for Naomh Conaill, for Leo and those boys," the former Derry star told the Belfast Telegraph.
"They are a fantastic club, fantastic people.
“Whenever they were playing anywhere else, I'd always have been watching out for them and always had a soft spot."Tweet
