Rebel Óg Fé 16 Cork County ‘A’ Hurling Final


Rebel Óg Fé 16 Cork County ‘A’ Hurling Final   Aghabullogue 2-11  Newcestown 0-16.   Aghabullogue retained the Rebel Óg  Cork  County Fé 16 A grade hurling title in a welter of excitement before a huge crowd at Cloughduv last evening. Despite two early Aghabullogue goals Newcestown edged their way back into contention, with some magnificent points  to draw level ,  2- 3 to 0- 9 at the short whistle.   Both teams dominated proceedings for various stages during the second period and the standard of hurling was extremely high with scores exchanged at a frenetic pace.   Newcestown  were  in a comfortable position with five minutes remaining as they led by 3 points and  the  Aghabullogue attack seemed  to have waned. However an amazing late surge saw the skilful Ian Barry Murphy slot over 4 points, to seal a dramatic one point  victory for the Mid Club.   Réiteoir- Nathan Wall (Carrigaline).
