King crowns it for Erin's Isle

Erin's Isle overcame a battling Fingallians by 1-14 to 1-9 to claim the Dublin U15 'D' Hurling Championship title after a titanic battle on Blakestown Road last Sunday lunchtime.

Nicholas King was the game's most dominant performer, accruing 0-6 for the Finglas lads while Jack Grafton scored a superb goal to maintain his side's momentum.

Jake Fay, Neil Matthews and goalkeeper James Keoghan all played starring roles against a Fingallians side that were reduced to fourteen men.

That they continued to remain in contention was testament to their battling qualities and the free-taking prowess of David Cullen ensured that the contest was left in the balance up until the final whistle.

Sean O'Neill's goal was another boost for the Swords club but they ultimately ran out of time despite the tireless shift delivered in the middle third by Diarmuid O'Hanrahan.
