In Pictures: O’Dempseys celebrate Division 1A success


O’Dempsey’s didn’t have far to go tonight as they celebrated their Division 1 ‘A’ success in The Heritage Killenard.

The style was second to none, with some of the men even being kitted out in blue and gold O’Dempsey’s ties for the occasion.

O’Dempsey’s were crowned ACFL Division 1A champions after defeating St Joseph’s by four points in July.

Matthew and Micheal Finlay were their chief scorers as they amassed 1-6 between them on the night.

They had a long road to the final – first defeating Ballyroan-Abbey, The Heath, Graiguecullen, losing to Stradbally, beating Arles-Killeen and St Joseph’s, drawing with Portlaoise, and defeating St Joseph’s again in the final.

The cup was present on the night as were the medals to be presented to the players.

O’Dempsey’s also made it to the quarter-finals of the Senior football championship, where they were beaten by the eventual winners Portlaoise.
