As always, it was a titanic battle against our neighbours Glencar/Manorhamilton but we eventually crossed the line and deservedly lifted the Dick Ellis Cup. It is a remarkable achievement considering that we were barely able to field a team to compete last year. A huge congratulations and thank you to Joe Keaney, Dermot O’Rourke and Michael McGuire for all their hard work over the last year in guiding this team to the final. We appreciate the sacrifices you and your families have all made to make this success happen. To each player on the panel, we thank you for your commitment and determination in bringing success back to the club. After years of heart break and the loss of our beloved players, you have brought such joy and hope back to the parishes of Glenfarne and Kiltycogher. For that, we are forever in your debt. Commiserations to Glencar/Manorhamilton who were very gracious in defeat – we wish you every success in the future.
