Hurling doesn’t get much of a look in on this site, I know, but today – on hurling’s big day (Up the Banner, by the way!) – it’s only right and proper salute the county’s minor hurling team who yesterday in Ballinamore captured the All-Ireland Minor C hurling title when they defeated Monaghan by 1-15 to 0-8.
Colm Gannon of the Mayo Advertiser was at yesterday’s final and his match report is here. The redoubtable Nigel Quinn was also there and kept the wider world aware of events via Twitter, including by posting the above photo of the victorious team claiming the spoils.
Hearty congrats to manager Brian Finn, captain Fergal Boland and all the lads on a great national win for the county. Here’s hoping it’s the first of three All-Ireland titles we’ll see coming our way before the month is out.
