Congratulations to the players and mentors on their great win over Cappawhite Gaels in the County Under 16 'A' hurling final at Holycross on Saturday. We played with the aid of a stiff breeze in the first half and opened the scoring with a Jack Lanigan point. A goal from Liam McCormack gave us some breathing space and we lead by 1-11 to 0-7 at the break. A resilient Cappawhite fought back in the second half but with our defence holding firm we still lead by 7 with ten minutes remaining. However a Cappawhite goal reduced the margin and set up a very exciting finish. We dug deep and showed a lot of character in the closing minutes and it was fitting that it was our captain Jack Lanigan who had the final say when he crashed the sliotar to the net in the final minute.

Full time score Durlas Og 2-19 Cappawhite 1-15. There were great scenes of jubilation as Jack lifted the cup to record our first win in this grade since 2011.
