Passage East defeated Drom & Inch by one point in the final of St Molleran’s Noel Kelly Senior Hurling Tournament last Saturday.
The large crowd of spectators were treated to an absolute cracker of a match on an evening of ideal weather conditions.
The game featured some breathtaking scores, outstanding individual performances, but most of all two brilliant teams who gave their all to gain that most important victory.
Only one point separated the teams at the final whistle with Passage coming out on top. It was a classic game and a fitting finale to a memorable tournament.
Final score: Passage 3-14, Drom & Inch 2-16.
