Feast of Football Served at Allianz Coughlan Cup Finals Day

After an absence of 3 years, it was a pleasure to see the Allianz Coughlan Cup finals day back in full swing! Having been graded from Day 1 all seven divisions proved to be very competitive, with many positions only settled by score difference!

Congratulations to St. Kevin’s Team 1 who were worthy winners of the Division 1 Coughlan Cup. Roundwood N.S. pushed St. Kevin’s all the way in what was a very competitive division. Kilcoole P.S. and St. Laurence’s Team 1 completed this highly skilful group.

St. Cronan’s Team 1 were victorious in Division 2 taking home the inaugural O’Riordan Cup with a fine display of skill and team work. Ashford Team 1, Gaelscol na gCloch Liath 1 and Newtown 1 pushed St. Cronan’s all the way with Ashford ultimately claiming the runner’s up position. This group were a pleasure to watch play with some lovely point taking on display in windy conditions.

With over 300 children playing across the 14 pitches this was a fantastic day for Gaelic Games in the county. Well done to all the children who competed today and served up a truly magnificent feast of football!
