St Mary’s, Edenderry 1-14

Colaiste Eoin 2-10

Both sides deserve huge credit for the way they played the game and club and inter-county managers the length and breadth of the country who inisist on getting 14 men behind the ball should be forced to watch this video to remind them how the game should be played.

The action was end to end, the pace was ferocious, every player on the field gave their all and ran themselves into the ground, the tackling was hard but their wasn’t a bad challenge from start to finish, the woodwork was rattled at crucial moments, the lead changed hands several times and of course there was the drama of the late winner which was the icing on the cake.
