THE Barndarrig side who won the 1988 Senior Hurling Championship were treated to a meal at the Beehive last weekend by the club.

It was almost 25 years ago to the day when the Barndarrig players came out on top after a nailbiting final as they defeated Kiltegan by just two points, eventually coming out on top of a close encounter in the closing minutes.

In the Beehive there was a lot less hair and a lot more pounds on view than back 25 years ago. The 1988 panel were also able to relive their final experience with a screening of a DVD of the match arranged especially for the night.

The team were also honoured at halftime in the county hurling final last Sunday.
