On Sunday 22 October, our senior men won the club's 3rd-ever county title when they beat Oulart-The Ballagh by 2-16 to 1-9 in Wexford Park. While we had beaten Oulart in the opening group stage match on a balmy evening in Enniscorthy in May, the defending champions were the rightful favourites for the final as they had won every match since then and they have proven themselves time and again to be a truly special team.  However, on a remarkable afternoon our boys all stood tall, went in at halftime leading 1-7 to 1-5 and slowly stretched the lead in the 2nd half.  We will have time for more detailed reflection later in the year but there's very little down team for these young men as next Sunday 29 October will see them back in the Park as they take on a very strong Starlights team in the county football final.
