Our under 21 team regained the championship title which we relinquished last year with a fantastic performance and victory over Clonguish in their home ground in Friday night. In a game in which we dominated from the off, goals from Ciaran Donohoe, Jamie King and Paddy Kiernan saw us home on a score line of 4-15 to 8 points. This was very much a team performance with everyone from our ever reliable goalkeeper Shane Fitzpatrick out playing excellently. This was our 6th under 21 championship final in a row with 4 victories after many barren years without an under 21 success. Well done to team and management.
Hard luck to Mullinalaughta who unfortunately bowed out of the Leinster championship on Sunday last after a hugely committed and determined performance against the Mighty St Vincent’s. They have certainly done the county proud and proved that our best club teams are right up there with the best in the country.
