Courageous effort by our Piece Purcell, Leinster Champions in All Ireland Final

After beating Moyola Park, the Ulster Champions on Friday 21st last, our Pierce Purcell team went down by the narrowest of margins to Thurles at Carton House today.

In a tense, nail-biting match that ebbed and flowed all day the team was narrowly beaten on the 19th and 18th respectively.

However they deserve great credit in getting to an All Ireland final in the first place and have brought great honour and recognition to the club in the process.

The team , under the expert guidance of the redoubtable Gerry (“Spider”) Maher  was;-

Martin Whitty and Bill Geraghty, Eddie Trant and Jimmy Murphy, Mick Cleary and Brendan Mullins, Antony Ryan and Thomas Powell, Brenny Murphy and Paul Dempsey.

The Team appreciate very much the level of support received from the members over the last 2 days.
