Well what a day that was.
It was exactly glorious sunshine but it was dry conditions and we can’t complain about that for Day 1 of the Cumann na mBunscol football finals at the end of October.
We had a total of eight finals down for decision today and there were some truly dramatic affairs in them.
The day started with one of the closest affairs as Arles NS edged out Mayo NS of Crettyard by a point.
Rushall and Killanure won their respective finals in more comfortable circumstances with Killanure’s Colm Conroy netting ten goals.
The game between Castletown and Paddock NS in the Roinn 3 Girls required double extra time while Clonenagh won a title in their first appearance in the finals in decades.
Scoil Bhride Mountrath, St Colman’s and Clonaghdoo NS took the final titles of the day.
