Anthony Baggott Cup 2018

The annual festival of hurling which culminates with the presentation of the Anthony Baggott Cup took place today in Herbertstown.


The host school were joined by neighbours Hospital NS, Knockainey NS and Caherline NS in a round robin where each school played each other. Following these close fought games, Caherline NS and Knockainey NS advanced to the final.


A parade led by Kathleen Fitzgerald, a piper from the Liam Lynch Memorial Pipe Band, took place before the final. Caherline, who were crowned East champions 24 hours previous, showed their class to beat the South Champions Knockainey.

Following the final, Eileen Baggott presented the Anthony Baggott Memorial Cup to the Caherline captain. Prizes were also presented by Herbertstown NS principal Carmel Heelan to the players adjudged to be Rising Stars from each panel. Congratulations to Caherline NS who are now champions for 2 years in a row.
