There was joy for the Faithful County as Kilcormac Killoughey lifted the John West Féile na naGael Division 2 title after an epic encounter against Cork’s Valley Rovers at Bishopstown, Cork on Sunday.

It was one of two titles for Offaly with Tullamore also claiming the Division 4 crown.

A goal from Arran Danzell proved decisive for Kilcormac-Killoughey and captain Brecon Kavanagh was the happiest man in the county when he lifted the prized trophy.

The John West Féile na nGael Under-14 hurling and camogie finals took place over a hectic weekend of action across Cork and Kerry.

This is the fourth year that natural protein experts John West have sponsored the underage tournament, which is the biggest of its kind in Europe.
