Seamus and Brian join Len Gaynor, Eamonn O Shea and Enda Hogan as holders of All-Ireland U-21 medals.
The junior hurlers lost out to Toomevara in a competitive final in Moneygall. MacDonaghs had a good north campaign and now focus on the county quarter-final where they will face the south champions. Well done to Toomevara who were deserving winners. See match report.
