Sliabh gCua 2-11; Mount Sion 1-2
Sliabh gCua’s 20-year wait for a County Championship is over having defeated Mount Sion
In this game, it was the older players that really stood out. John Hallinan, JP Fitzpatrick, David Whelan and Kieran Hallahan who all won Under-21 ‘B’ County Medals in 1990 and Intermediate medals in 1991 were to the fore in this game. If you were not aware of their ages you would not have guessed.
If ever a side had a tonic start, Sliabh gCua had one in this game with JP Fitzpatrick slotted over a point after 14 seconds.
