Dylan And Danny, joint captains proudly hold the cup

Congratulations to Mr Cadogan’s Rackard League Hurling team who beat Bree in the County Final In Taghmon on Monday evening.  This was a first hurling win since 1998 and the boys completed the double for the first time ever having defeated the same opposition in the football final last November. The boys displayed great skill and determination in containing spirited opposition from Bree.  The opening quarter was tense and close and it was 13 minutes before Adam Knight opened the score with a point. This gave the boys great heart and they scored a further 1-4 to lead 1-5 to nil at half time  scoring the goal just before the break. They started brightly in the second half and scored a further 1-1 before Bree scored their first goal. The final quarter was close but Horeswood were deserving winners. Rackard League Secretary presented the cup to joint captains Danny Byrne and Dylan Whitty. Panel. Patrick Cummins, Martin Kinsella, Sean Hunt, Dylan Whitty, Eamonn O’Sullivan (0-2), Daragh Kent, Danny Byrne, Andrew Breen, Evan Lyng, Sean Nolan (1-4), Jack Kehoe,  Cyril Prendergast, Adam Knight (2-2), Colm Dawkins, Emmet Kehoe, Dean Roberts, Eric Dickenson, Ben Somers, Kevin Roche, Joe O’Sullivan, Danny Nolan and David Murphy who missed the game through injury.  Congratulations are also due to Ms O’ Connor’s camogie team who were not so fortunate in their final against St. Aidan’s Enniscorthy. St Aidan’s proved a very strong opposisition , denying Horeswood a single score and were well deserved winners. The Horeswood girls can aim to make the final again next year and prove they can do it!
