The Gaels suffered an agonising defeat to St Marys in the U21 A Championship final last Saturday by the narrowest of margins. The Gaels dominated the first half and went in four points up at half time, however a strong second half from St Marys saw them take the lead mid way through the half and thanks to heroics from Daniel Lyons the Gaels kept in touch. The teams were level going into injury time with Marys converting a free to win in the dying seconds on a score line of 1-15 to 1-14. The team was: Daniel Lyons, Ben Tuohy, Evan Lyons, Alan Kelly, Enda O'Connell, Patrick Benson, Sean Carroll, James Carroll (0-3), Dillon McDermott, Daire Kearns (1-1), Shane Deignan (0-1), Mark Kearns (0-2), Seamus Hailstones (0-1), Dylan Willis (0-1), Darragh Hailstones (0-5), Subs: Karl McKenna for S Hailstones, Luke Flynn for D McDermott, Ultan McKenna, Steven Willis, Brendan Hailstones, Michael Barry, Niall Whelan, Ryan Fitzpatrick. Thanks to the players and management of Donal Tuohy, Brian Boyd and Liam O'Connell for their efforts this year. This is the last game in what has been a long year for many players contesting finals at Minor, Intermediate and U21 and with all but one of the panel underage next year, hopefully we will be contesting for honours at this level in 2019.
