Congratulations to our senior hurlers who were crowned North senior hurling champions for the second year in a row on Saturday evening last in Dolla. In a tight game throughout, Nenagh won out by 4 points defeating Kiladangan on a scoreline of 21 points to 17.
Kiladangan took an early 3 point lead but when the boys went a point up in the middle of the first half they held onto the lead until the final whistle. This was a fine team performance with everyone playing their part – well done to the panel and the management team on a memorable win.

Following the full time whistle, captain Barry Heffernan accepted the Frank McGrath cup for the second year running from North Board Chairman Michael Tierney who fittingly acknowledged Barry’s return from the injury he sustained in last year’s final.
Conor Hennessy received the Man of the Match award and in so doing followed a proud and unique Hennessy family tradition with his father Phil winning the award in the 1993 North Final and grandfather Phil winning it in 1964.
