Trumera celebrated winning the Intermediate hurling title for the second time in two year’s with style at the Killeshin hotel tonight.
The red and white army managed to overcome Rathdowney-Errill in the final, battling back from being three points down with five minutes left to play.
Dylan Lalor was Trumera’s hero on the day, as he converted three late frees to complete the remarkable comeback.
Trumera’s investment in the the Leinster junior championship came to an end in O’Toole Park in Dublin as they were defeated by the Dublin side Erins Isle by four points.
Small club, big success
For a small club, Trumera have had quite a lot of county final success in the last 15 years or so.
Back in 2004, they won the intermediate title which saw them promoted to senior and they spent a couple of years at the top grade before dropping back down again.
They have fluctuated between a number of different grades since then, going back to Junior ‘A’, up to Senior ‘A’ and this year they calimed the intermediate title.
Now the side are back competiting in Senior ‘A’ for this year’s championship.
