Kiladangan have been crowned County U21A hurling champions for the first time in the club’s history.
Two goals – one from Tom O’ Meara, and one from Bryan McLoughney in either half – proved decisive as they defeated Holycross/Ballycahill 2-17 to 17 points.
Kiladangan’s first goal came in the first play of the game – leaving Holycross with an early mountain to climb.
The North Tipp side powered through the first half, outscoring the Mid champions by 8 points – it was Kiladangan: 1-11(14) Holycross Ballycahill: 0-6(6) at half time.
A strong breeze favoured Holycross/Ballycahill in the second half but heading into it that far adrift left them with too much ground to make up.
Kiladangan finished 6 points clear – 2-17 to 17 points.
