Dunnamaggin GAA: Senior Hurling League Title Well done to the Dunnamaggin Intermediate Hurlers who won the Division 3 Hurling League title after a cracking game against Young Ireland in Ballyhale on Tuesday eve. Dunnamaggin led coming down the home straight but Young Irelands brought the game back to level at full time. Due to late throw in time and my agreement with both management the game went straight to penalties to be decided. Goalie Seaghan O'Neill stepped up to the challenge and although the first two well taken ones got by him the 3rd did not. Michael Cody, ,Kieran Bergin, Eoghan Kearney and Joe Fitxpatrick Converted the Dunnamaggin penalties. Young Ireland converted the fourth but when the fifth blasted over the bar the game was Dunnamaggins and Seaghan did not have to take one on his opposite number. Well done lads.
