September 9, 2011

Kiltale captain Iarla Hughes raises the Ted Murtagh Cup at St Loman's Park, Trim, after his side's victory over Dunboyne.

Meath GAA Under-14 Hurling Championship: Final
Kiltale 3-15, Dunboyne 5-4

This game was played at great pace and passion and on a lovely calm evening for a change weather wise. With great support from both clubs the two teams entertained all with great skill.

Kiltale scores were Ross Ryan 1-4, Hughie O’Sullivan 1-4, Iarla Hughes 0-4, Cathal Ryan 1-1 and Sean Healy 0-2. With the Ryan twins Ross and Ronan in flying form one at each end of the field it helped bring the team together. The Kiltale defence on their toes and keeping Dunboyne at bay the backs were tight and left Dunboyne fighting for every score. The Dunboyne Centre forward was strong and put Kiltale under pressure at the end of the 1st half. Taking to the field in the second half it was Kiltale that dominated with Cathal Brien, Brian Reilly in the defence, Iarla Hughes, Eoin Crowe in the centre and up front Ross Ryan, Cathal Ryan and Hughie O’Sullivan. It was a great team performance by Kiltale. After the game captain Iarla Hughes received the Ted Murtagh Cup, which completed a 3-in-a-row for Kiltale.

Kiltale team: Andrew Jackson; Hugh Smith, Cathal Brien, Jack Quinn; Robbie McGuiness, Ronan Ryan, Brian Reilly; Iarla Hughes, Eoin Crowe; Jack Farrell, Sean Healy, Cathal Ryan: Kyle Benson, Ross Ryan, Hughie O’Sullivan. Subs: Connor McNally, Adam Murphy, Padraic Keane, Liam Gilsenan, Jack Cummins.
