Last weekend our brilliant U-15 hurlers won the U15 B Shield beating Oliver Plunketts 3-14 to 2-09. Having only being promoted from division 3 last year, makes this win all the sweeter, a fantastic achievement.
Playing against the wind in the first half, Mearnog took control building up an early lead and went in at the half time break up by 1 point. Plunketts started the second half stronger and soon went into a 2 point lead. Great defending and a never say die spirit, saw the Mearnog boys storm back with a magnificent final quarter to run out worthy winners. Team captain Eoin Kelly proudly accepted the trophy on behalf of the team.
