PRIDE of place goes this week to Finuge, who added Munster Intermediate Championship to their long list of club success on Sunday last.
They travelled to Mallow to take on St Vincent's and after a top class team performance they came home with the cup. The goal from James Flaherty was the cushion needed for the win 1-5 to 0-5 and Chris Allen collected the Intermediate Cup. We congratulate the players and mentors for their endurance and grit in bringing another Munster title to Finuge and Kerry. We wish them every success in January when they play in the All Ireland Intermediate semi-final.
