Dunnamaggin GAA: Feile Finalists Well done to the Dunnamaggin U15 Hurlers who reached the division 1 Feile final recently. The group stages were held in Piltown and a very good game saw Dunnamaggin overcome the hosts in the later stages of these 15min aside games. Next up it was neighbours Carrickshock and in a very close game it ended all square. These results put Dunnamaggin through to the semi finals in Dunmore where Clara were the opposition. In a very tough game Dunnamaggin came out winners to put them up against city side James Stephens in the Final. James Stephens got off to a strong start and maintained that lead for the remainder of the game to be crowned Champions. A super achievement from our lads to reach the Division 1 Final and they showed some super hurling throughout the 4 games they played.Well done to all involved.
