Muckalee man Ewan Buggy scored a stunning total of 5-12 as he led Scoil Bhride Ardough to a historic Cumann na mBunscol victory in O’Moore Park against Castlecuffe this afternoon.
The school which is based in Crettyard and borders Carlow and Kilkennt, has only 19 pupils enrolled and this is simply a stunning victory.

But Ardough responded with a goal of their own through Ava Delaney when she latched on to a long free from Buggy who then added three more points to move his side four ahead.
Castlecuffe sub Jack Carroll responded with a free but Buggy replied instantly to make it 1-5 to 1-1 at the midpoint of the first half.
The brilliant Buggy then rattled home Ardough’s opening goal after another fine run and while Richie Delaney replied with a point, Evan Dunne and Buggy scored further goals as Ardough stretched clear.
Buggy added another point and then Ava Delaney diverted his long ball into the net for Ardough’s fourth goal.
Jack Carroll gave Castlecuffe hope on the resumption with a brilliant goal but Ardough’s Buggy completed his hat-trick and then added another point to make it 5-7 to 2-2.
Buggy added three more points and then rammed home his fourth goal to put the game beyond any doubt as we entered the final ten minutes.
Castlecuffe kept going and Jack Carroll scored his second goal before Conor O’Shea got another but Ardough would not be denied as Buggy completed his double hat-trick before the end.
