Best wishes to Bart Daly and fellow Duhallow representatives, Aidan Walsh, John McLoughlin and Lorcán McLoughlin and to the Cork under 21 football team that will contest the All Ireland final against Down at Portlaoise on Monday, May 4th, at 3:30pm.
News from April, 2009
Newmarket ‘s under 21 football team recorded their third successive Duhallow championship victory, and ninth in the club’s history when defeating Knocknagree in the final at Dromtariffe on Saturday evening.
The Newmarket under 21 footballers head into the weekend looking for the three in a row to equal their achievement at minor grade in 2006. Having overcome Boherbue and Kanturk in the 2007 and 2008 under 21 deciders, Knocknagree now face the champions.
Although the titleholders got the better of their opponents earlier in the year, with the last two finals going to replays, an entertaining contest is guaranteed.
The match is set for 7:00pm this Saturday, the 25th of April, in Dromtariffe. All support welcome.
