Herbertstown NS captured the Roinn A hurling title for the first time since 1988 following a victory over neighbours Hospital NS in a tense final.
The final started very positively for Herbertstown with some quick-fire goals giving the team a lead which they would not relinquish for the remainder of the game.
This start would prove to be all important as the free flowing hurling of the first half was replaced by tight, tense passages of play and our boys showed great determination and resilience to hold off a strong fight back from Hospital.
Huge congratulations to the team who have worked very hard in training all year.
A nice link to the last time the school won the A title was that two players from that team, Kevin Higgins and Edmond Heffernan had sons playing in today’s game.
