In Pictures: All smiles as Trumera celebrate 2021 Intermediate hurling success

There was serious style in the Manor Hotel in Abbeyleix at the weekend for the Trumera GAA Dinner Dance.

The Covid-19 pandemic has robbed us of the opportunity to celebrate moments like these – so it is certainly brilliant to them return.

For a small club, Trumera get a lot of big days out.

Back in June last year, 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 October’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.

They came straight back down again but they’ve become specialists at battling their way through this championship and they did so again last year in considerable style.

In a ding-dong battle with Clough-Ballacolla, a young team – with a sprinkle of experience around the field – claimed glory again.

They will now play at the Premier Intermediate grade this year and will be hoping for better than their last adventure at this grade.

Photographer Alf Harvey went along to the dinner dance at the weekend.
