U13 A County Final:

Loughrea 0-7

Turloughmore 1-4


There was a dramatic finish to this U13 A County final. Deep into injury time, Turloughmore trailed by 3 points when full forward Tom Nolan was fouled. Goalkeeper Darragh Walsh was summoned to take the 22 metre free and with the last puck of the game he goaled to send the Final to a replay on a final score line of 1-4 to 0-7.


This was a most enjoyable game of hurling with both sides deserving credit. A fine Loughrea side had a host of chances throughout the evening, but Turloughmore goalkeeper Darragh Walsh excelled as he made a host of important savesCrucially Turloughmore, despite trailing by 0-4 to 0-2 at the break and facing into the wind in the second half, displayed great character in that second period and eventually eked out the draw,


Sean O Hanlon shot Turloughmore’s two points in the first half, though a few goal mouth scrambles didn’t yield any dividends. Loughrea saw Captain Shane Morgan convert 2 frees with Tiernan Killeen and Kian Mahony also scoring. Cian Shaughnessy moved up field for the second half and a Sean O Hanlon free left just one point in it.


Darren Shaughnessy (3) & Sean O Hanlon swopped frees so with 3 minutes left Loughrea led by 0-7 to 0-4, before the dramatic finish ensured that there will be a replay, probably next week. Turloughmore did well to keep at their task though a big task awaits again in the replay.
