The Jo Maher U14 hurling tournament took place on Saturday 9th last. Doon opened the competition with a fine victory over near neighbours Cappawhite in the first semi final and Bruff were victorious over St. Patricks in the second. This meant that St. Patricks and Cappawhite would contest the shield final from which Cappawhite emerged victorious. The tournament final between Doon and Bruff was a great game with some fine hurling on display and after Doon got a couple of early goals to build up a lead they would never surrender, Rodgie Maher presented the trophy to winning captain Jerry O’Brien. Many thanks to the Maher family for running this tournament which gives clubs an opportunity to dust off the winter cobwebs in preparation for the championship.
