The rain was pelting down in a wind-swept Bekan but there was nothing that was going to dampen Easkey’s celebrations after winning the club’s first ever Provincial title in the decider with Ballygar on Saturday.

Players, their families and supporters were emotionally hugging each other as what this win means to the west Sligo club could clearly be seen.
