Castleblayney Hurlers in All Ireland Final

There was great scenes of jubilation at Cusack Park, Mullingar on Sunday afternoon last, when the towns gallant hurling team defeated the Leitrim and Connacht Champions Carrick Hurling Club by the slimmest of margins to earn themselves a place in the All Ireland Final.

The Castleblayney Hurlers will now meet the Kilkenny Club Champions Dunnamaggin in the All Ireland Junior Club Hurling Final to be played in Croke Park on Sunday 10th February.

In an epic finish the Blayney lads had to withstand strong attacking pressure, which had reduced their three point lead down to one, but they managed to remain ahead at the final whistle.
