O’Loughlin Gaels 2-13 to 0-16 The Rower Inistioge
Sunday Oct. 16th 2016 - Nowlan Prk, 2pm – Referee Peter Burke
O'LOUGHLIN GAELS INTO COUNTY FINAL
The lads managed to maintain the three point advantage they held going onto the second half right to the final whistle but not before a few heart stopping moments as the game closed when The Rower were forced to press for an equalising goal. A stoic O’Loughlin Gaels defence was not letting that happen however and the Gaels saw off the challenge to book themselves a place in the final in two weeks time.
The second Semi-final today had last year’s champions Clara dethroned by the previous year’s Champions Ballyhale Shamrocks, who are going to be formidable opponents in the final. It’s knuckle down time for the next two weeks..all hands on deck as the Club and St. John’s Parish prepare for a County Final. Be there on October 30th and support your club.
