A busy season finished on a high note under lights in Borrisoleigh when the U14 hurlers claimed the North ‘A’ title with a hard-earned 4-11 to 1-9 victory over Ballina. MacDonaghs led by four points at the interval but Ballina cut the deficit to two at the second water break. However, a strong final quarter saw Kilruane out the gap. Well done to the players and management.
Team: Andrew Austin, Cathal McIntyre, Tommy Burriss, Fearghal Doheny, Cormac Gaynor, Killian Healy (0-5 frees), Jack Quinlisk, Paul Molloy (Capt), Fiachradh Woods, Shane Cleary (0-1), Ray Quinlivan (2-1), William Jones, Dara O’Looney, Colin Doris, Michael Cleary (2-4, 0-2 frees).
