Controversy

There was some controversy in May 2008 when Donegal native Scott "the Grub" Glenn signed for the club. He left three months later, and went straight to the local newspaper to tell of his trials and tribulations. He said that he was ridiculed and bullied beyond belief and that they were the worst three months of his life. The newspaper contacted some well-known club members to get an insight into what happened. One thought that Glenn actually had "2 left feet", and another felt that his feet resembled "trotters". Another one said that when he took his shoes off, it smelt like "a dead cat wrapped in shit" Glenn has played for nine different GAA clubs around the country since this controversy but can't settle.

St. Eunans have also been known to field illegal players as they stuggle against quality opposition and have to resport to their trademark underhanded cheating antics. This has resulted in Eunans being rightly stripped of a county championship in the 1990's.

O'Donnell park has also been a ground renowned for selling stolen goods. In May 2009 a caterer was arrested when caught selling packets of crisps from a box of Tayto which had been reported missing from McCumhaill park after a previous inter-county game. Despite no formal charges every being made it is believed that a cartel of St. Eunan players were invovled. Similar incidents have also occured at St. Michaels ground where a case of McDaid football special was seen prorturding from Brendan Devenneys boot. Again no formal chargers have ever bene brought but St. Eunans are under constant surveillance for being a crowd of dirty letterkenny wanks.
