Dunnamaggin U13 in County Hurling Final. Well done to the Dunnamaggin U13 hurlers who contested the Roinn B County final in Danesfort on Saturday last. Dunnamaggin playing with the breeze took the game to the hotly fancied Erins Own team and deservedly lead at halftime. The wind picked up and Castlecomer took full advantage of it to eventually level the game and in the closing stages pull ahead. The Dunnamaggin lads kept fighting all the way to the final whistle and played a super brand of hurling throughout the game and should be very proud of their efforts.
