Darragh & Luke – All Ireland Minor Champions

Cork 3-20 Galway 3-14
(after extra time)

Congratlations to Darragh Cashman and Luke Murphy who played superbly yesterday, helping Cork to win their first All-Ireland Minor Football title in nineteen years. Darragh had a fine game from wing back, scoring points either side of half time, while Luke came on after 51 minutes, and held his nerve to score a superb crucial point to draw Cork level when time in the second half was nearly up. Two brilliant lads, they’re the first locals to win a minor since Seanie Barrett won with Cork in 1991.
