Carrick Hurlers take 32nd County Senior Hurling Title

Our congratulations to the hurlers of Carrick Hurling Club who earlier this afternoon claimed the club’s 32nd County SHC title with a clear 3-11 to 0-8 victory over Cluainín Iomáint. Played in Páirc Seán Mac Diarmada, the Carrick lads were into their stride from early on and held a 1-5 to 0-5 halftime advantage. They quickly added to this advantage and two late goals by Liam and Colm Moreton cemented the title win over a luckless Cluainín team. Man of the match was Colm Moreton who scored 1-5 while his brother Liam added the other two goals. It was heartbreaking for the lads from Manorhamilton as they have been defeated in the SFC and SHC Finals in the space of seven days. Nonetheless, for the Carrick Hurlers, this title is a most fitting tribute to the late Bernard Murray, their staunchest member over many years who passed away suddenly last month.
