Kilruane trailed by four points at the break, but in a tremendous second half display turned a point interval deficit into a four point lead. However, Thomastown struck for two late goals to take the title. Team: Jamie Kennedy, Eoin O’Meara, James Loughnane, Dylan Moran, Rory Grace, Aaron Morgan and Cormac Doheny.
