For a small club, Trumera get a lot of big days out.
Back in June they played in the delayed 2020 intermediate hurling final to Rathdowney-Errill; in July they were beaten in the Division 2 league final by The Harps.
And last night’s intermediate hurling final clash against Clough-Ballacolla was their fourth final appearance since 2015.
Their stays in the higher Premier Intermediate grades (then called Senior ‘A’), were short-lived on both occasions as they came straight back down again but they’ve become specialists at battling their way through this championship and they did so again this year in considerable style.
Under former Ballinakill player Damien Walsh, they didn’t want to become known as the team that lost two county finals in the same year.
In a ding-dong battle with Clough-Ballacolla, a young team – with a sprinkle of experience around the field – claimed glory again.
And photographer Denis Byrne was on hand to capture a selection of great images, which you can check out below.
Trumera now go forward to play in the Leinster junior hurling championship where they’ll play the Longford senior champions on the weekend of November 19-21.
